Couture AW14 Fashion week

Its that time of year again when we start to see the new beauty trends being created. The Couture AW14 Fashion Week  always kicks off first from the clean fresh face to the twists on the graphic eye.

I always love to share the trends each season and I love recreating on shoots. The fresh no makeup makeup face is always a big trend but the skincare is a big element to this look with the top makeup artists using amazing products to get the flawless glowing skin. One of the looks the makeup artists massaged oils into the skin before makeup was applied to give the illusion of glowing skin.

I am loving the the graphic eyes from the red on pale skin with the red lips, the traditional black eye with fresh flawless skin to the teal two toned eye created by Pat Mcgrath which looks phenomenal with a nude lip and subtle contouring.

The Chanel look is definitely one of my favourite’s with the spiky hair and the multi toned metallic eye with a pop of yellow on the lid and matt skin. Matt skin is very modern but skin has to be really prepped first otherwise the matt foundation will look really dry on the skin. Here the model’s skin is fresh and flawless.

Instead of going with the traditional black liner we see strips of adhesive metallic silver used as liner in the Christian Dior  show which looks really cool and amazing with the peachy lip and bold brow. I also love the black shimmer adhesive used under the eyes and a gloss on the lid for the Vauthier show its a creative twist and I love it.

I love the blurred out undone smokey eye with the sheer orange/red lip, this look is easy to create at home as it doesn’t have to be perfect. Love love love the use of metallic on the side of the face with the red lip very creative and so cool.

What’s your favourite couture AW14 look?
