Finally arrived! Autumn Winter 2011-12 Makeup Trends!

Its so easy to get tired and bored of a trend and given that I work in an industry in which trends dominate- you're always craving the new and exciting ones to hit the streets.

The whole "trends" is a funny thing.. I kind of love them but kinda loathe them at the same time. I respect and admire the guideline inspiration it brings to my everyday work life and also the right understanding for what the public wants, but I hate the idea of conforming to an expectation.

Working at MAC is fun for a dominant reason that you are constantly surrounded by other artists who follow their own styles and looks. So, when surrounded by all that love- we tend to create our own looks, likes and loves between us.

And with time.. I want to share these funny lil trends us guys on the counter love so much! But for this particular post I really want to share with you some of the key trends coming through from the fashion world for A/W 11-12!

Let's check up the new makeup trends for the Fall 2011/ Winter 2012 season and try to find your own inspirarion.

Natural Look.

A trend that never goes out of fashion. Fast & easy. Keep to matte or shiney skin, neutral shades, rosy cheeks and natural lip tone.

Where: Balmain, Stella McCartney, Versace, Valentino, Alexander Wang.


Dark natural eyebrow.
Natural shaped and dark eybrow, which frame the face can and will make your makeup complete.
Where: Oscar De la Renta, Alexander Wang, Lanvin. 

Warm autumn makeup.
Try to use brown and orange eyeshadows and forget about tanned skin.
Where: Chloe, Prada, Versace.

Natural look + lined eyes.
Clean, strong and simple. This look has dominated for so long and its not going anywhere!
Where: Stella McCartney, Lanvin, Marc Jacobs, Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana.


Smokey olive makeup.
Without any accent on the lips, the eyes are defined in an olive palette.
Where: 3.1 Phillip Lim, Chanel.

Red and purple lips.

The general rule is to wear either heavy eye makeup or bold lips, so I prefer deep red or mystical purple on our lips. 
Where: Miu Miu, Gucci, Yves Sain Laurent.
