Summer is coming to an end and Autumn is now upon us. Here are some beauty tips from the artists at Emma Davies on how to survive the change in season in style.
Maria suggests using a few drops of Chanel Base Lumiere in to your moisturiser or foundation to wake up sullen skin. She says, “This will instantly lift your skin tone and with its illuminating qualities skin will look brighter and healthier.”
Eli says that this autumn there are lots of beautiful bold colours available for lips and nails, so enjoy them – Givenchy has some great colours.
Ruth Funnell’s tip is to try some of the gorgeous taupe blushers that are around this season to give yourself some great bone structure with some subtle shading just under the cheekbone, (the new way to use blusher). A sweep over the top with a pretty peach will bring a delicate bloom and make the eyes stand out and says to also experiment using the beautiful taupe, camel and grey tones in eye palettes. These can intensify both light and dark eyes.
Ruth says “This soft approach with makeup will totally modernise the camels and nude tones of clothes that are around this season and make them appear fresh and new” and loves the Chanel A/W Enigma eye palette (as used on the Red magazine shoot), she adds “This is particularly lovely to use with just the right amount of glimmer. Water can be added for more intense colour next to lashes”.
Ayo Laguda says that this is the to use deep conditioning treatments to combat dry and frazzled hair thanks to the ravages of summer and the central heating coming on.
1. Use mousse in clean dray hair and a squirt of anti frizz serum.
2. Brush in to a ponytail at the nape of the neck and pin back any wispy bits. Hold the base of the ponytail to twist in to a tight spiral and coil it around the base to form the chignon.
3. Tuck the end under the chignon and use grips (and maybe a light mist of hairspray to hold in to place).
And don’t forget your nails… We need all the help we can get for our nails in the colder months so massage nail oil into your cuticles, nails and surrounding skin pre sleep to both hydrate and simulate increasing rate of growth.
