Natural makeup: Brown is the new black

Natural makeup: Brown is the new black
Posted by Maggie Morley

Fashionistas looking for the latest natural makeup trends have been given a simple rule to stay on trend for the autumn/winter season – brown is the new black.

In the main, this applies to eye makeup, and Amy Lawrenson, writing for Elle UK, has explained that implementing this style is perfect for the smoky eye look, as brown is less intense and makes for a more sultry take.

She added that some of the biggest names on the catwalk are leading the way with this new natural makeup trend, with Julian Macdonald opting for chestnut circled eyes offset with peach on the lips.

"Tea-stained eyes at Pringle and toffee shades at Anna Sui and DKNY continued the trend for soft, sheer browns but at Alexander Wang a greasy texture and red-tinged ochre added a tougher edge," the expert stated.

Brown eyes will work well with the nude natural makeup look – stick with autumnal shades to complement pale lips.ADNFCR-2885-ID-800021044-ADNFCR
