Dark & Mysterious Make Up
Autumn is the perfect time of year to transform your look and bring tones of red, auburn and black into your make up palette. Whether you’re looking for a dark and mysterious make up look or something edgy for Halloween, we have put together our five favourite looks for A/W 2017.
As the colder weather draws in, fashion tends to turn darker, celebrating black, grey and deep red, with more intense shapes and striking designs. As Halloween gets closer, eyeliner begins to get more daring, as the feline flick re-appears on the catwalk. To transition your make-up look for autumn, keep your foundation light, but pair with bold eyeliner and a flirtatious flick. To achieve this look,use a liquid eyeliner such as the Blinc Ultrathin Liquid Eyeliner Pen and exaggerate the line to beyond the inner corner of the eye, with a bold flick at the outer edge, giving the illusion of bigger and more feline looking eyes. Intensify the colour for the evening with a smoky eye and apply a white shadow under your eyebrows. Add a pair of Lash Unlimited strip eyelashes and add a layer of Blinc Mascara. Keep the rest of your make up quite subtle and let your eyes do all the talking.
To take this look one step further, perhaps for a Halloween party, apply BEAUTYBLVD Glitter Lips in Dark Disorder for a dark and mysterious look.
Snow White Lips
The tale of pure and kind hearted Snow White is memorable not only for her white porcelain skin, but for her deep red lips. Make a striking and bold statement this autumn with a bold matte red lip. For the ultimate red lip, first buff away any dry skin using a lip exfoliator and add a touch of lip balm. Allow to dry and line your lips with a colour that matches your natural lip colour. Using a red lip liner may not match your lipstick and could look messy. If you want to make your lips look fuller, emphasise your cupid’s bow. Apply a red lipstick such as the Deborah Lippmann Sexyback Lip Stick and sweep translucent powder over your lips to ensure the colour stays in place.

Achieve chiselled cheekbones like Maleficent and contour your way through autumn, with brows to die for.

Darken and define your brows with our PONI Cosmetics Mane Stain Waterproof Brow Creme and highlight the arch of your eyebrows with the PONI Cosmetics Brow Pop 3 in 1 Brow Highlighter Pencil.
