Lipliners at the ready: it's autumn and the strongest trend to permeate the highstreet is the geisha inspired look. Drawing inspiration from the Chrisitan Dior Autumn/Winter catwalk think rich autumnal shades to reflect the season and make-up precision for statement eyes and lips. To achieve this dramatic look blend concealer over lips then line with MAC lip liner creating a strong V-shape and matching lipstick in DIVA for outstanding colour. For durability, try Lipcote to avoid damson stains on wine glasses and clothing. Experiment with lashes and eyeliner flicks to compliment the look but be wary of overloading your face as Halloween is long gone. Interesting mixes of colour can be accomplished by adding light layers of purple. A well-applied matte base is key and will help your make up stay put.
