One of my favourite things about Fashion Weeks (besides the fashion and street style of course) are the beauty looks and fresh makeup inspiration coming up for next season. I know there are still a couple of weeks left of Summer here in Aus, but like a few of you, I'm more than ready to get layered up and start thinking Autumn/Winter.
Here are some of my favourite looks from Fall 2014 RTW...

Lashes and Liner
Rag and Bone Fall 2014 RTW | Gucci Fall 2014 RTW
Lashes were everything at Gucci. My favourite mascara to create that faux lash look is Benefit's They're Real. It really is an amazing mascara and worth the hype! To recreate the look, use a beige/nude eye pencil (my fave is Nars' Larger Than Life Eye Pencil in Rue Bonaparte) in the water line to open the eyes. I love using a beige pencil as opposed to a white as it can look too stark and actually make your eyes look less white. A taupe-y bronze shadow was used in the crease with a black liquid liner to line the top lash line. And if you want to go all out and create that dramatic look, falsies are definitely required!
This has to be my favourite look from Fall 2014 - soft, feminine eyes with contoured cheeks. James Kaliardos, the makeup artist for Diane Von Furstenburg's Fall 2014 collection, created the look by contouring the sides of the face with concealer to create a natural shadow. He then rimmed the lower waterline with a nude eye pencil. A dusty mauve lip colour was then used across the lids to create a glossy hue. If your eyelids tend to crease, then I wouldn't recommend using a lip colour - a cream shadow (like Chanel's Illusion D'ombre) will do the trick!
