1. Autumn beauty trend 2016: Berry Lips
One of the easiest updates this autumn to be bang on with the beauty trends 2016 are juicy berry lips. Replace the corals and poppy pinks with achingly chic shades of wine, claret, berry, burgundy and even black. These sultry shades ruled the runway throughout Paris, Milan, London and New York.

Gloss or matte, the finish is up to you, just have fun with it this autumn. Try NYX Professional matte Lipstick or L’Oreal Colouriche Made For Me for instant sultry vibes
2. Autumn beauty trend 2016: Graphic liner
Eyes are still the window to the soul in AW 16, yet this season you can dress them however you want, as long as it contains eyeliner. Continuing its reign from SS16, liquid eyeliner is still just as striking this season too. As well as traditional ways to wear liner, experimental shapes, lines and colours proves that liner doesn’t have to be dull. Blinc Liquid Eyeliner Pen has the most precise brush in the world, ideal for trying your hand to a graphic shape or striking line.

Dewy skin is always desirable, but this season it gets supercharged. This is a two part trend, but don’t let it get you down. The results are worth it, trust us! The models at models at Gucci, Valentino and Isabel Marant were treated to indulgent facial massages, with the aim to create plump, glowing, luminous complexions. Not only does this benefit your skin, it simultaneously sculpts and plumps your face in all the right places, leaving you with cheekbones to die for. Emulate the results at home and give yourself a DIY facial massage every morning with Emma Hardie Brilliance Facial Oil to get the blood flowing and bring a gorgeous glow to your skin.

A pop of pretty pink blush instantly adds health and vitality to your skin. Avoid peach tones and get rosy They get rosy. By Terry’s makeup artist states that “Pink, duplicates the natural look of a baby. The more you age, the more you lose that fresh tone of rose.
