THINK PINK

First, we had Valentino’s hot pink runway show. Then Ryan Gosling and Margot Robbie stepped out in hues of magenta (and some killer rollerblades that we’re praying make a comeback). Now, Barbiecore has taken the fashion and beauty world by storm, and we’re on board.

With pink at the forefront of our minds, we’re switching up our makeup routine and going all out. So, what do you need to achieve Barbiecore beauty? A strong eyeshadow is a good place to start and NARS’ Single Eyeshadow in the shade Firenze is just what we’re after. Highly pigmented, shimmery and easy to apply – it’s everything you could want and more. Finish your eye look off with M.A.C’s new Colour Excess Gel Pencil Eye Liner in the shade Tat Last – a silky, smooth saturated formula that lasts up to 24 hours – sign us up. If you’re wanting to make a more subtle statement, reach for Gucci Beauty’s Rouge A Lèvres Voile Lipstick in Mill Rose – the perfect shade of everyday pink. Jumping on the new blush trend? Pop on some of Patrick Ta’s Major Headlines Blush Duos in the shade She’s A Doll, (we know - pretty appropriate), to add some serious colour to your complexion.

METALLIC FEATURES

With the festive season on the horizon, metallic makeup is a trend we can get on board with. At Gucci’s AW22 runway, models sported metallic silver and green foil over their eyelids, while Dior went for a slightly fresher look, dabbing eyeshadow onto the inner corners of the eyes. 

The key to recreating the trend? For an all-over eye look, go for a powder-based eyeshadow like M.A.C’s Dazzleshadow Extreme – it’s easy to apply and the fallout is minimal compared to similar products. Looking to take a page out of Euphoria’s makeup trends? Create some intrinsic designs or strong eyeliner looks with Lancôme’s Longwear Cream Eyeshadow Stick or Nudestix’s Nude Metallic Berry Eye Kit. 

It doesn’t stop there: your lips deserve some of the spotlight too. UOMA’S Black Magic Hypnotic Metallic Lipstick is ideal for taking your look from day to night.

REIMAGINED RED LIPS

It’s no surprise that red lips continue to be big news. The key to pulling it off this season? Creating a contrast. Following the status skin trend, models at Miu Miu and Khaite all wore bright red lips against a minimal makeup base.  

When it comes to red lips, you know the drill. For a long-lasting, more precise application, always opt for a lip liner. NARS’ Precision Lip Liner is our go-to. Then, it’s time for the lipstick. Matte, glossy, satin – whichever way you wear it, keep the rest of your makeup to a minimum. For a perfect lip every time, check out our guide on how to apply lipstick like a pro - you can thank us later.

STATUS SKIN

There’s no escaping the no-makeup makeup look this year and why would you want to? AW22 beauty is all about barely-there beauty with a major focus on a healthy-looking, post-gym sheen. So, it’s time to ditch the full-coverage foundations and sharp contouring and take a step back. In other words, it’s all about skincare. 

Wondering how you achieve status skin? Think hydrating, brightening products that lock in moisture and leave your skin looking plump and radiant. Earlier this year, Charlotte Tilbury proved yet again that she’s the queen of glow when she released her new Glow Toner. Infused with a blend of skin-loving good stuff, including niacinamide, it’s the perfect first step to achieving a dewy finish. We’re also turning to the art of moisture sandwiching and going straight in with a serum. Our top choice? Tan Luxe’s Super Glow Serum. Enriched with hyaluronic acid, it hydrates while bronzing the skin. To finish off, reach for Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Brightening Face Cream and Eve Lom’s Radiance Face Oil to help lock in moisture and leave skin with a healthy-looking shine.

BROWN IS THE NEW BLACK

Ever since Y2K poster girl Bella Hadid walked down the Max Mara runway with makeup in muted brown tones, we’ve been hooked. Last year, we saw the birth of the modern smokey eye and now, the barely-there smokey eye is having its moment. 

If you ever needed an excuse to treat yourself to a new makeup palette, this is it. What do we have our eyes on? Morphe’s 350 Supernatural Glow Artistry Palette. With 35 earthy, brown tones in shimmer and matte finishes, you’ll be spoilt for choice. 

Looking for something you can use on the go? Tom Ford Beauty’s Mink Mirage features four highly pigmented shades that are perfect for day or night. Once your eyeshadow is complete, finish your look with Sisley’s Phyto-Mascara Ultra-Stretch and lightly smudge Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Infinite Waterproof Eyeliner across your eyelash line. 

The result? A brown, smokey eye that’s a true nod to ‘90s beauty.
