According to MAC's director of artistry Terry Barber, "Make up has an unfinished quality for AW13. Perfection is boring. It's all about a worn in - walk of shame make up."
With punk, grunge, studs and gothic all coming back in trend in full force in AW, the 'walk of shame' make up look will fit in well. Moving away from girly, pin up looks, us ladies have the opportunity to be a bit bolder, a bit brighter and ultimately, a bit cooler.
Cara Delevingne has made even the shyest of girls let their brows go a little, and bold well-groomed brows, with definition using pencil or powders, have been predicted to stay on the scene. The taupe and beige colours for eyes and cheeks is also a sophisticated and big predicted look for the upcoming season, according to beauty insiders, to achieve well looked after skin.
Whilst bright lips have been around for a while now, this season we have been told to expect red lips, no matter what texture, being big. Worn with smokey or nude eyes, depending on the occasion most likely, this statement lip colour is classic and easy to match to clothes. What goes better with an LBD than bright red and pink lips?
It's a big mix of predictions, some going for messy make up and some predicting a groomed look will win us ladies over - but only time will tell what we'll go for. At IKRUSH we like to mix it up, sometimes going for smokey messy eyes, sometimes going for neat and pretty with light shadows. What is your favourite look?
