With the chilly weather creeping up on us, your wardrobe is not the only thing that needs an overhaul. This season, forget about colouring within the lines and trying to master the perfect winged eyeliner. From blurred lips to colour-blocked eyes, we’ve gathered the “coolest” Fall/Winter 2017 beauty trends below:

Blurred lips

Remember that time you couldn’t quite get your lipliner to work so you wiped it off and ended up with a smudged lip? If that still happens, then you’re in luck because that is the latest trend in the make-up world. Notably deemed as the “snogging” look, you can either apply this the old-fashioned way and smudge your lipstick on or try it as the name suggests, kiss to your heart’s desire (and lipstick smeared).

Overlined eyes

Forget lining your eyes as close to your lash line as possible and go wild with your eyeliner. From drawing above your eyelid to not filling out your outlines for your winged eyeliner, this is about thinking (and colouring) outside the box.

Winter flush

There’s nothing more attractive than peachy cheeks and a rosy nose during winter. Create the illusion of a flushed face from a cold day out in the snow with a rose or peach eyeshadow, blush and lip tint.

Cool-girl hair

For the laidback girl, this trend calls for a messy yet tamed hairstyle. It’s far from the extreme bed head and not quite a smooth combed look, but it’s styled to give off a more effortless vibe. So make some waves with your flat iron and add some texturing spritz to give your hair a more polished “woke up like this” feel.

Colour blocked eyes

Don’t throw away your bright eyeshadows yet because the vibrant colour blocking trend from spring is being carried forward to this winter. Release your creative side and go all out—match all the unconventional colours and we guarantee you’ll feel quite liberated.

Wild nails

When your nails are done, everything you hold instantly becomes 100% more Instagrammable and this season, we’ve been seeing a lot more of extreme nail art. From hand-painted luxury brand logos to adding chains and other materials to nails, stay fashionable all the way to your fingertips.

Feathery flutter

People say the eyes are the window to the soul, so don't forget to accentuate your eyelashes, both the top and bottom set. Layer on your mascara because for FW 2017, more is more—and yes even if it gets a little clumpy.

Two-toned lips

If the “snogged” lips trend isn’t really your cup of tea, but you’re feeling a little adventurous, go ahead and take two different lip colours and apply it separately on the top and bottom. Yes, two-toned lips may have started last year, but it’s been constantly evolving. From a hard colour block to a softer ombre two-toned, test out your favourite combo and let your lips do the talking.

Glow on

The no-make-up, make-up look will never go out of style, but with the much drier weather this coming season you’ll need to add a bit more glow. With this trend, you can ditch the contouring and go straight to highlighting.

Not just for the eyes, the metallic texture is a strong focus this season. Go bold with metallic products from eyeshadow to bronzers and lipsticks, there’s no need to hold back on the shimmer. Sweep on as much as you want for a dazzling look.
