The Top 5 Fall/Winter 2018 Beauty Trends We Can't Wait To Try

It’s not just the fashion pack taking notes at the Fall/Winter 2018 fashion shows, beauty editors and insiders too were penning down next season’s It hair accessory, eyeshadow shade and all the other makeup looks that are bound to make waves in the coming months. Hairstylists were all about nostalgic hair accessories taking cues from the early 00s while makeup artists took risks with colour. Below, we pick the top five trends to try.

 

 

Bold And Colourful Eye Makeup Is In
If you have always loved playing with eyeshadows, this is your chance to take bigger risks and opt for bolder colours. And if you usually stick to safer shades, it’s time to break out. In a nod to the bold, experimental era of the 80s, models at Prada’s show sported bright coloured hues on their lids that came studded with Swarovski crystals. Bold And Colourful Eye Makeup Is In
Creating a cut crease is no longer just about using a double eyelid tape or a standard dark brown shade.  Models at Anna Sui had a defined opaque purple coloured line above their lid to give an illusion of bigger eyes. What else we love: a wash of pink just below the eyebrows for that extra pop of colour. Braids Are Big
The best way to keep your locks looking neat and tidy apart from the usual ponytail? Braids. The precise French braids worn on models at Preen by Thorn called for a double take. Seems like power braids have never looked this good. Retro Hair Accessories Are The New Cool
Whether you prefer calling it a statement clip or a “my-mum-had-one-of-those” clip, retro accessories have made a comeback. Models at Alexander Wang were sported with slicked back hair bunned up using the butterfly clip, a look commonly worn in the 00s. It’s pretty amazing how the look that many people deemed as “uncool” is now surprisingly chic and refreshing. Retro hair accessories are the new cool
No, it’s not any kind of headband, we are talking about the spiral hair band. This school girl must-have has made a comeback and was seen on models at Prabal Gurung. So if you have one hidden in your vanity, it’s time to take it out and rock it. Blush It Up
Applying blusher is not something that’s new but it’s often overlooked and considered less popular and exciting as compared to innovative lip products or pretty eyeshadow palettes. But it seems that blushers are now making more of a statement on the Fall/Winter 2018 runways. Whether it’s a wash of pink or flushed cheeks, many models seemed to have got a hint of colour on their cheeks. The look at House of Holland: dewy, luminous skin with coral, flushed cheeks that oozed a romantic appeal. Blush It Up
Loewe’s interpretation of it? A more natural take with models sporting a wash of pink on the apples of their cheeks. Wearable, chic and a great way to perk up and brighten any complexion. The Must-Have: Black Eyeliner
We love the natural, “no-makeup” look but for the Fall/Winter 2018 season, black eyeliners are back. Precise, little flicks were drawn on the eyelids of models at Dolce & Gabanna but not too dramatic though – the look was kept clean and simple, just enough to give more definition to the eyes. The Must-Have: Black Eyeliner
Black kohl eye pencil was used to draw along both lash lines. The Chloe women proved that a simple application of eyeliner is a foolproof way to look sophisticated, edgy and modern.
