No one is immune to the back-to-school mood the coming of autumn brings. Many seek to indulge in the spirit of the season not by sharpening pencils, but by sharpening their look with a new lip colour or hair colour update. To guide us through the latest fall trends we chatted with Bruno Elorrioroz, Aveda Advanced Artistic Director in London and Janell Geason, Aveda Global Artistic Director, Makeup
Their suggestions will surely inspire just the right beauty tweak you’ll need to start the season off stylishly.
Skin Care as Makeup
The range of lip and eye looks for Autumn/Winter Fashion Week 2017 ran the gamut from winged eyes to berry-stained lips, but nearly all designers requested radiant, fresh skin.
Makeup artists responded by spending extra time masking models and using certain skincare products as highlighters.
Janell suggests using two of her backstage staples, the Aveda Tulasāra™ Wedding Masque as a primer to plump and soothe skin, and the Aveda Tulasāra™ Radiant Oleation Oil as a highlighter to make skin “look fresh and alive.”
Hair colour that’s single-processed, yet luminous and rich is an ideal complement to autumn's fresh-faced complexions. Techniques like elliptical balayage–applying various, yet similar tones in an oval around the head–add depth and dimension, and can also be used to make the hair appear fuller. Says Bruno, “Playing with not just one shade, but two to four similar hues create more texture, allowing hair to catch the light easily.”
