5 Makeup Trends To Try This Autumn | DB Cosmetics NZ | 01

Are you getting bored of your usual makeup routine and ready for a fresh new look? With a change of season, comes the perfect time to shake things up and try something new.

We’ve pulled together the 5 makeup trends you’ll love to wear this Autumn, along with our Autumn makeup tips and product recommendations for your face, eyes and lips so that you can easily recreate these looks at home.

Trend #1: Red Lip Renaissance

As the weather starts to turn, Autumn is the perfect season to wear a red lip makeup look to brighten up the cooler days. Think rich colours of orange and brown, the glow of a fire, cozy knits and beautiful red lipsticks to go with and complement this colour palette.

Our Moisturising Lipstick is available in a range of bold colours including Crimson Red, Bordeaux Red and Current Kiss. With a long-lasting formula specifically made to counteract dryness, these lipsticks glide onto the lips without dragging or pulling. The creamy texture is rich and intense, perfect for a dark red lip makeup look. And the strong pigments ensure that your lip colour will last even when eating and drinking.

Pair that red lipstick with your favourite Pigment Pout Lip Liner to achieve a perfectly lined, feather-proof pout. Made with a creamy formula infused with Hyaluronic Acid for moisture retention, it glides on with ease and keeps your lip colour locked in place! Available in a handy retractable pencil, it’s perfect for use on-the-go!

Trend #2: Barely-there Foundation

Foundation that looks like skin is the trend we’re looking at this Autumn. Opt for a foundation that provides a natural, skin-like finish and looks natural. It doesn’t have to be dewy or matte - this autumn, we’re seeing the rise of demi-matte foundations.

Our Skin Renew Foundation and Skin Renew Pressed Powder both offer lightweight, buildable coverage and a second-skin finish for a healthy complexion all day long. These natural foundations are infused with Hyaluronic Acid and Ceramides to improve hydration and make skin appear renewed, refreshed and smooth. Vitamin C and Vitamin A help encourage even skin tone and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

For the best results, we recommend wearing a makeup primer like our Blur Primer to keep your makeup looking fresh.

Trend #3: Uplifting Colour

Feel like getting creative with your makeup? Try reaching for colours you wouldn’t usually wear and explore some colourful makeup looks. Wearing colour has the power to uplift us - especially heading into darker weather. And with colourful eyeshadow looking like a trend for this year, now is the time to give it a go.

For a pop of colour on your eyelids, try our Eye See You Eyeshadow Palettes in Sea Breeze, Fired Up, or Kah-Keen. We love a pink blush to warm up your makeup look. Still very much on-trend, try our Mineral Blush to add a healthy pop of colour to your complexion. Infused with Aloe Vera this blush will also soothe and calm the skin.

Trend #4: Statement Eyeliner

Statement eyeliner is making a strong comeback this Autumn. Think bold, winged liner to create an intense look and make a lasting impression. Eyeliner on lower lashes is also an easy way to change up your usual makeup look. Simply line your lower lashes with an eyeliner of the same shade than the eyeliner on your top lash line, or with a slightly lighter shade.

If you’re feeling adventurous this season, try a colourful eyeliner - it’s an easy and subtle way to add a touch of colour to your makeup! Our Pigment Plus Water-Resistant Retractable Eyeliner comes in a range of shades, like electric blue or emerald green to compliment your eye colour.

Choose from our selection of liquid and pencil eyeliners to use on both your upper and lower lashes - try combining the easy-to-use Absolute Precision Liquid Eyeliner Pen with a smouldering eyeshadow and lengthening mascara for a complete look.

Trend #5: Long Lashes

Ever wonder how to do eye makeup for red lips? Long defined lashes are an easy and effective way to enhance every makeup look. Whatever your go-to mascara style is, try our Extend A Lash Mascara and use it on lower lashes for an on-trend look.

We couldn't talk about lashes and not mention the iconic Twiggy eye makeup - apply a few extra coats of lengthening mascara on your upper and lower lashes to recreate her iconic 60’s eye makeup trend.
