A/W 2012 Beauty guide

By night…

It’s all about 90’s goth glamour, Pat McGrath who created the look for “the girl with the dragon tattoo” coinsidently or not carried the inspiration forth to her fall show’s.
“Paled out” flawless skin with burgundy lips and very groomed full eye brows.
Pencil in Blackfire, rather than a lip liner, to rim lips before layering them with burgundy pigments and blending them together, to create a black cherry finish.

By day…

Soft pinks, golds and jewel tones are a big deal too. Bordeaux makes browns and grays look molten and gorgeous. Keeping lines soft – and making sure that your base is flawless, skin this season is beautifully matte but with a glow that seems to radiate from within, rather than a sheen on the surface.


A naturally full, slanted, shaped brow with a soft arch that finishes at the end of the eyes (not overextended) is a universally flattering shape. The perfectly defined brow is a great way to give an edge to a natural look.
If you have major holes in your brows, I would fill them in a little with powder—or a powdery pencil—and then use a colored brow mascara. Tweezing, rather than waxing or threading, is the best method to create beautiful brows. It’s the easiest way to create a precise line close to the brow line, and it is also simple to use at home for maintenance. And remember girls, our eyebrows are sisters not twins.
