Styling You blogger Nikki Parkinson shares her 10 insider tips for looking amazing this autumn – from rocking berry lips to graphic eyes (and why CC creams are the new BB creams).


1. Berry
lips


A
little
bit
gothic
and
not
for
the
faint
of
heart.
It’s
a
lip
colour
that
can
age
you
so
steer
clear
if
that’s
not
your
makeup
intention.


2. Barefaced
makeup


This
is
minimalist
makeup
at
its
finest.
Think,
flawless
makeup
finish
with
a
slick
of
gloss
and
mascara.
Well-­-groomed,
bold
brows
are
essential
here
to
frame
the
face.


3. Ethereal
makeup


Minimalist
with
a
glow,
whether
that’s
silver,
pink,
gold
or
bronze,
it’s
all
about
the
dreamy
finish.


4. Graphic
eyes


Make
liquid
eyeliner
your
friend
and
define
your
eye
with
a
nod
to
old-­school
Hollywood
glamour

think
a
prominent
flick
at
the
corners.


5. Pink
cheeks


Seriously
the
easiest
way
to
look
younger
in
seconds.


6. Red
lips


Always
a
classic.
Find
your
ideal
red
and
wear
it
often.


7. Colour
pop


If
you’re
up
for
it,
think
coloured
mascara,
brightly
coloured
eyeliner
and
lip
colour
that’s
off
the
charts
and
firmly
in
1980s
territory.


8. CC
creams


The
BB
(Beauty
Balm)
cream
market
is
now
big
business.
Enter
stage
left,
CC
creams,
aimed
at
specifically
targeting
hyperpigmentation
and
dark
spots.


9. Nail
art


This
is
a
trend
that’s
not
going
away.
An
easy
one
to
try
at
home?
The
reverse
French
manicure
with
a
dark
colour
on
the
tips;
light
colour
on
the
nail.


10. Long
pony
tails
or
shorter
bobs
of
tousled
waves


Both
looks
make
it
seem
like
you
haven’t
gone
to
a
lot
of
effort
but
in
reality,
you
have.
It’s
all
about
the
prep
work
with
products
to
first
create
volume
and
movement.
