Autumn/Winter 2014 Makeup trends

In this post I paired up with the lovely Charlotte from Beauty and Bolder. On her blog you'll find her recreating lot's of amazing looks, as well as reviews and lifestyle posts. She's very talented and her step by step tutorials are so easy to follow! As you'll see in this post she recreated each of the trends for you and she's definitely tempted me into trying the metallic eyes soon!

Metallic Eyes
Forget mattes and shimmers, metallic eyes are making a comeback this season. The look is relatively simple to recreate, all you need is a wash of metallic eyeshadow over the entire lid. If you’re feeling more adventurous you could try a similar metallic shade in the crease.

This look isn’t limited to makeup artists with their expensive kit. Affordable options include the Rimmel scandaleyes eyeshadow paints, Maybelline Colour Tattoos or the Collection metallic cream eyeshadows!

Bold Lashes
The bigger the better! Bold lashes look great with a minimal look! My favourite picks for bold lashes are the Max Factor false lash mascara, Clinique high impact, any essence mascara  and the Natural Collection lash length mascara for only £2!
Pair bold lashes with a statement lip like Charlotte and you're good to go!

Berry Lips

As soon as the first bit of cold hits us makeup fanatics across the country rush not for their jumpers, but scour the high street for the perfect vampy shade! There’s just something about purple, dark red and mulberry lipsticks that has us eagerly anticipating winter. My top picks are the Make Up Rumours lipstick in shade 13 (for only £1), Revlon Black Cherry, Makeup Revolution Rebel without Cause (also only £1), Wet N wild Sugar Plum Fairy, Sleek Mulberry and Collection Gothic Glam in 3.

Berry lips look great with an otherwise no makeup makeup up, adding eyeliner close to the lashline and a coat of mascara will also add some definition whilst still keeping the whole look quite simple.

I hope you enjoyed this post, I certainly loved this collaboration!

I'd love to hear what new trends you might be trying yourself this season!

Rosegal.com* is a large online shop which sells women’s fashion and beauty products. They sell
everything from clothing (including vintage clothing) to handbags, jewellery and accessories.

They focus on Chinese fashion and their products are all quite affordable. The best part? They offer free worldwide delivery with a 30 day return period.

I had a browse at their necklace range as I definitely need something to pair with the jumpers that
have slowly started coming out of the wardrobe. Their necklace range is stunning and it starts at just
57p! You can view it here

 I could get atleast a few statement necklaces for the same price I would pay for one on the high

These are some of my favourites!

Gorgeous Diamante Colored Faux Gemstone Embellished Waterdrop Shape Pendant Necklace for £3.44 here 

I love the Pastel shades of this necklace and it’s definitely something I can see myself wearing a lot. 

The Faux Gem Embellished Fashionable Openwork Necklace for £2.34 here  

This would look great with a fluffy jumper and add some colour to your outfit.

Characteristic Rhinestoned Alloy Necklace for £1.92 here

Their dress collection is also incredibly vast. They do everything from casual dresses to prom dresses. I loved so many of the dresses I saw but this was would have been an incredibly long post if I were to include them all, so my top picks are:

This Bohemian maxi dress is so stylish and elegant, and it only costs £8.88 here

This is a lovely flamboyant dress that would be perfect for all those Christmas parties that will soon be coming up. You can get it for £12.32 here

Overall they have some great stuff on their website. Even if you don't order clothes online the necklaces are worth having a look at! They were kind enough to give my readers a 8% coupon code: joeyCgil.

I hope you enjoyed this post!
