With September hot on our heels, its time to look ahead at what’s hot for Autumn/ Winter 2013. Electric Chic by YSL hit the high street at the beginning of August kindly giving us plenty of time to get stocked up for the winter! Taking its inspiration from city life, the collection is infused with metallic’s, bright’s and dull hues of grey.
This stunning Autumn collection makes all us English Rose girls wish we had Pocahontas locks and beautifully bronzed skin. The dark, fruity lip colours, the warm grey polish and the metallic eye palette will empower your look.
Bang on trend, this mythical collection will make lips pop, eyes glitter and gleam and nails appear like talons. Just in time for Halloween, why not go the whole hog and create an outrageous, catwalk inspired look to really get those Dracula’s interested!
The two lipsticks in this collection are breathtaking, giving a silky, cream finish; the colours are rich, full bodied and smell exactly like the fruits they resemble.
No 50 in Nocturnal Plum is a gorgeous, gloomy plum with a moisturized sheen. Rich and dark, this bold, dark lip look is bang on trend for A/W this year. The colour in No 51, Vibrant Vermillion is a vibrant tomato red. A stunning orange red with a hint of burnished gold. If you're a blue eyed beauty, apply this colour on the lip to make your eyes pop like jewels.
The City Drive Palette in 'Classy' takes inspiration from luster rich materials throughout the city. Champagne, Marble, Concrete and Steel make a delicate yet sumptuous palette.
The lightest colour, Champagne would work perfectly for those with fair skin tones as an all over base shimmer on the eye, as well as a highlighter for cheekbones, inner corners, cupids bow and brow bone for all skin types. The dull brown next door to Champagne if perfect for creating a beautifully soft smokey eye for Autumn, which teamed with the Nocturnal Plum would look stunning.
The golden brown could be used on fairer skin tones all over the lid for a warm, spiced apple glow, or for the smokey eye lovers, this could be blended through the crease to help blend seamlessly from dark to light. Finally, the steel grey is vibrant with a fine glitter sparkling throughout. This could be pushed on top of the lighter colours or used in the inner corners to accentuate.
My final pick from this collection is this gorgeously understated nail varnish in 39 Beige Gallery. Mirroring the current interiors trend for beige, the nail colour is quietly sophisticated. This polish is highly versatile and would work well in the office, teamed with a bejewelled gown or with a smart casual blazer look to hit the shops!
Overall, Electric Chich looks set to line the handbags of many city girls around the world. Its bold bright lip colours and warm shimmering eye palette gives every girl the oppertunity to create a look tailored to their skin tone. Now, i just need to win the lottery so i can go out and buy all of these amzing products!!
