AW19 is here, so it’s time to recap the most beautiful makeup looks from the shows and pick out the trends to try now. I love seeing what my fellow makeup artists are coming up with backstage, and this season didn’t disappoint. Amongst my favourites were the block colour lids at Carolina Herrera, Tom Pecheaux’s fun 80s vibe at Moschino and Pat McGrath’s gothic vibe at Versace.

Read my round-up of the trends, below

AW19 Biggest Beauty Trends


There was festival makeup inspiration aplenty at Manish, where Mac makeup artist Kabuki was channelling Burning Man beauty with neon lashes in pink, orange and green. One for the bold! At Mugler AW19, meanwhile, makeup artist Inge Grognard brought the 80s back with block blue eyeshadow that will also be a fun festival look. Makeup artist Romy Soleimani also brought colour to the catwalk at Carolina Herrera with neon coral lids.


‘Leftover makeup’ was the inspiration at Dries Van Noten for makeup artist Peter Philips, who created a statement look using gold, silver and coloured glitter flecked across lids and lashes. Meanwhile at Gucci, makeup artist Thomas de Kluyver added sparkle to dramatic effect with crystallised tears on model’s cheeks. At Vivienne Westwood amongst an array of statement looks were airbrushed gold faces, while Isamaya Ffrench created statement eyes at Haplern using cracked gold leaf. The real glitter show-stopper could be found at Rodarte, where makeup artist James Kaliardos used Nars to create pink and red glitter lids and lips.


Feline eyeliner flicks went supersized at Missoni, where makeup artist Lynsey Alexandra created bold, graphic liner on selected models, leaving others bare. Meanwhile at Moschino, Tom Pecheaux created colourful oversized feline flicks in another nod to the 80s.


Smooth, semi-matte skin was high on the agenda for AW19, with Pat McGrath creating a soft, polished complexion with bleached brows at Burberry and Lucia Pieroni adding glossy eyes to polished, slightly glowing skin at Christopher Kane.


What is AW without a berry lip?! This seasonal classic was given a reboot by Tom Pecheaux for MAC at Oscar de la Renta, where it was worn blurry and against glowing, natural skin. At Versace meanwhile, Pat McGrath teamed pale, muted skin and blood red lips for a gorgeous gothic beauty vibe.
