Top 5 Beauty Trends for Autumn/Winter 2008

I’m a skin care and mascara addict but when I’m on a shoot I love to ask the make-up artist for some tips – who knows better than a working professional!

Celebrity make-up Rachel Wood shares her Top 5 for Autumn/Winter 08!

 jennifer_connolly_eyebrows1- Brows, groomed but full, put away your tweezers and say hello Brooke Shields circa 1980 style brows to frame your peepers! Use one of the many fab coloured brow gels out there to keep them tamed but think more Jennifer Connolly then Marlene Dietrich when giving them shape.

 benefit_lipstick2- Full on Colour for Lips, for this A/W I’m really into cream or satin textures that have vibrant colour rather than a metallic or shimmer that diffuses colour…save that gloss for the Spring. Hues of Cherry Red, Funky Fuchsia and Breakfast at Tiffany’s Orange add a bit of brightness to dull winter skin.

 glam-balm_rodial3- Glam Balm by Rodial– this all purpose wonder product has about a 100 different uses, love it for the over worked dry skin back stage when working on the shows for Fashion week, it plumps up lips and I love it dabbed around my eyes when flying. rehydrates where you need it most. For make-up ideas add a touch of shimmery loose eye shadow pigment and blend on the eyes or cheekbones for glossy colour. (Hmm, I keep hearing about this product, it’s ¬£62.00 but I just might¬† have to try it!)

4-Bad Gal Lash Plum– by Benefit. Plum and purples are huge this season and this mascara gives a touch of brightness to your eye colour plus the thick juicy brush that gives rock star lashes…I can’t wait till this new product hits the shelves!

5- but not as we know it, moody mysterious eyes, subtle greys, blended black liner and put away the fake tan, skin: keep it pale and interesting!
