Let’s Be Catty!

Stylist and Image Consultant Nabila Maqsood gives us the makeup trends for fall. 

Variations of the cat eye are THE fashion statement, this season. The cat eye look helps soften your features and opens up your eyes, and has night-time appeal. You can also easily wear this to the office just by toning down the mascara. Creating an eye makeup look that is perfect for a given occasion doesn’t have to be difficult. With the L’Oreal Paris Super Liner, give your lower lash line the spotlight by lining not only the lash line but also the inner rim. Wing it out slightly in the outer corner and gently smudge to a fuzzy, smoky line. Skip lining on top and instead coat lashes with mascara for a wide-eyed effect – and don’t forget to use the lash curler!

Plum lips replaced red for spring. This season, try electric pink, salsa orange and an extremely brightened neon hot pink with a creamy finish with a slight sheen. Channel your inner girlie-glam with a sophisticated but fun fuchsia pout. While you’re surrounded by the season’s brightly coloured fashion and scenery, use them as your makeup muse.

The trick to pulling off a bright blush like tangerine or fuchsia is not about the right hue, it’s the intensity with which you apply it. The lighter your skin tone, the less blush you should apply.

Always remember to wash and moisturise your face at the beginning and end of the day to keep your skin in its best condition. Also, make sure your moisturizer has SPF to protect your skin from harmful UV Rays.
