SPOILER ALERT! Brazilian Butterfly brings you the top beauty trends for autumn/winter 2016, fresh off the runway direct to your computer screen!

Dark Lipstick: Seen on all our favourite beauty bloggers- beautiful rich colours like blackcurrant or dark chestnut definitely make the hit list! To perfect this look keep the rest of your makeup very minimal so your lips are the star of the show. As always with bold colours, lip liner will be your partner in crime because nobody needs their lipstick smudging or bleeding during the day.  This is the perfect look if you’re strapped for time - just apply your favourite lippy and you’re set!

Shades of Orange: Don’t be afraid to use more orange tones to accentuate your eyes and cheeks this autumn/winter.  Not usually a go-to colour for most of us but a peachy complexion is certainly trending this season- think Gigi Hadid and channel your inner goddess.

Strong Brows: Eyebrows have been and will continue to be at the forefront of fashion for autumn/winter 2016.  We are seeing an increased trend of a more natural shape and brows that aren’t sculptured within an inch of their lives. If you need help with your brow game visit one of our salons today and let our therapist work their magic!

Accessorise: Glitter, crystals and temporary henna tattoos are a big hit on autumn/winter catwalks for 2016. Don’t be afraid to add dimension to your look and have fun- after all it’s not permanent! You can also add an all over sparkle with our Blue Crush Shimmer Lotion perfect for those nights out on the town.

Back to Black: In summer we were opting for colourful eyeliners and playful eyeshadows,   moving into the colder months we are back to black – especially if you are from Melbourne! The smokey eye is also making a comeback this autumn/winter which can be a tricky one to pull off. We recommend perfecting your eyes first and then focusing on your complexion- this will eliminate any messy situations with eyeshadow fall out. Don’t be afraid to YouTube the many tutorials available online which can help you nail this look.

Ultra-Bright Complexion: Its official, strobing is the new contour! What is strobing you ask? It’s basically code for illuminated skin which is huge this season. Just because the weather is looking dull doesn’t mean your skin has to be, focus on highlighting your cheeks and brows for that perfect glow!

Making Waves: As for your hair it’s all about waves and we are seeing two variations of this style.  There are the more sculptured and sleek waves with the hair parted to the side or the loose, artfully dishevelled waves worn with a centre part. Play around and adopt the style that is right for you and your individual style.

Now that you are runway ready it is time to strut your stuff because we believe every woman should look and feel like the supermodel she is!
