”Your skin, but better” is the premise of no-makeup makeup. It’s all about subtle enhancements to the features on days when you’re in the mood for a less-is-more approach. A sheer gloss or blotting on a touch of your favourite nude lipstick will keep the look relaxed.

Shifting to darker lipstick shades during the colder months is not uncommon, but this year, it’s all about dark red lipstick. Think rich merlot, burgundy and berry shades in matte or satin finishes for maximum impact. It is a general rule that red lipsticks with blue undertones look good on all skin tones. So keep this in mind when choosing your ideal shade. Take your pick of the dark red heavyweights of 2022.

To make this bright blue liner more autumnal, Makeup Artist Mali Magic applied warm bronze shadow to the lids and under-eyes. Followed by gold shimmer applied to the inner eye corners to make everything pop. We love the addition of a sculpted nude lip for a little more sass.

Defining the eyes adds dimension to a classic nude makeup look. If you look closely at this look by Leah Baines, you’ll notice that beige eye shadow is used to define the eye area, along with a thin layer of brown eyeliner to keep the lines from looking too dark or graphic. The colours are soft and harmonious. A lifting mascara will perk up the eyes and finish the look.
