September is an amazing time in the world of fashion and beauty and way before summer fades, and our tans with it, the hugely influential AW fashion shows are under way and the key styles for the new season set, decided and out there!
Sad as we are to pack away our sandals and strappy dresses, there’s nothing quite like a couple of delectable new garments waiting in the wardrobe to cheer us on into autumn and beyond – and the eye make-up trends for this year are particularly delicious and inspiring.
Let’s start with an exciting new twist on old and familiar theme – the tried and tested Smoky Eye. Follow the trends headlined at the biggest shows and upgrade this classic beauty look to the Glitter Eye, or Glitter Smoky. Gild your lids with glitter shadows in bold new colours like blue or green or golden bronze, or keep your eye shadows matte and simple but add a sparkly line beneath each brow or a drift of contrasting sequins at the outer corners of the eyes. The possibilities are endless. Elegant party girls can go for subtle, with soft brown shadows and minimal glitz, while disco divas can up the ante and go for broke – just remember to keep the lip colour pale and subtle if your eye colour is bright.
At Lara Lashes we love the new Arty Liner look. Think Miro, Mondrian or Cleopatra, and boldly go for a dark wavy line beneath your lower lashes, or an upward-tilting cat’s eye frame, to enhance subtle shadow and lovely lashes and showcase your beautiful eyes. Be brave and dramatic – draw unwavering lines in black, navy, deep green or purple and let your artistry do the talking. Keep shadows and lip colours soft and subtle and your eyelash extensions fine, understated and beautifully applied.
Another hit on the catwalk for AW 2016/17 is the spider, or Twiggy, lash. This dolls-eye look calls for long, dramatic top and bottom lashes, brushed and combed through to separate. The lashes and liner are the main event here, so keep your eye shadow tones neutral so as not to detract. Go for a true sixties feel with pale lipstick and paler pan stick, or stay modern and give this iconic look a new, modern twist with a bold lips in darkest, deepest red.
Have fun and dare to be different – but don’t forget that your brows and lashes need to be especially super duper perfect for such bold and beautiful framing. Get ahead of the game and book your Lara Lashes appointment in advance for the party season – by which time you will hopefully be beautifully adept, line perfect and more than ready to impress!
