Hair and beauty tips brought to you by resident makeup artist Collette @collettemakeup
This time of year it’s fast becoming one of my favourites. I love all the textures and tones in this season’s clothes. I like to use them as inspiration in my colour palette for my makeup. The muted tones of autumn, the burnt oranges rich golds, deep greens, browns and berry reds. A colour palette that suits everyone! Here’s my new season hair and beauty tips to see you through the next few months.
Makeup to invest in
The lip and cream cheek palette from Pixi has a great range of lip colours for any occasion. Dewy skin that looks fresh and luminous is still a must so don’t go too heavy on the foundation. Use great skincare and keep your skin protected and hydrated through the cold winter months. I love the Charlotte Tilbury flawless filter or the By Terry CC brightening serum.
Morphe eye palettes also have a great selection of shades from day to night. I often choose the lips as my focus in winter, a gorgeous red or a rusty orange and keep the eyelids with just a wash of a neutral tone. But if you don’t feel too confident using a strong lipstick then stick to using these tones on your eyes instead with a natural flesh coloured lipstick.
A fresh cut for the new season
The same goes for this season’s hairstyles. Soft loose waves in the hair that you can just run your fingers through and maybe took behind one ear. I love to use a texture spray for a more “lived in” look. My favourite is the unite texture spray. My absolute favourite finishing serum is from windle London. Just a pea sized amount through the ends of the curls creates a gorgeous shine without looking greasy. Plus it has the most AMAZING scent!
Fringes are huge this season. Think Goldie Horne or Farah Fawcett, the long outgrown fringes that graduate into the sides for 70s shag style haircut. This style is so versatile and suit everybody.
Blunt bobs and sharp fringes are also making a comeback so there is a style for everyone!
Hope you love the products! Collette xxx
