AW14 BEAUTY: Hot Trends, Hot Brands.

Hello October!

Perfect timing to explore what AW14 has in store for us, and this time I’m talking beauty.

My luxury beauty journey goes back to when I was growing up and assisting my mum in her various flashy beauty hauls, whilst sampling the favourite bits prior to my latin-american and ballroom dancing competitions – a perfect ‘starter kit’ for a young beauty-nista!

From Chanel perfumes to Elizabeth Arden skincare, Estee Lauder, Dior, La Prairie (the list goes on…), I’ve always been ‘accidentally’ on-trend.

A little trip down this memory lane ended up with online-window-shopping at Harrods, discovering the latest luxury jewels! I mean, who would have thought that a Swarovski moisturiser from Kiehls is now £5,000?

So what’s really new in the beauty world this season?

Pauls Boutique

…breaks into the beauty market this autumn with the new fashion-forward PB beauty collection, inspired by their eclectic London roots and the love for design and fashion trends.

Less words, more pictures! Here is a little preview of what’s really in store for us.

These gorgeous PB make-up brushes are the new ‘it’ in the beauty blogger + vlogger circle. 

Brow Styling Kit and the new Pauls Boutique False Lash collection are the perfect match for both professional make-up artists as well as ordinary girls like us!

It also looks that every single product from the new range comes with full application instructions and a handful of useful tips and tricks, which are all featured as a part of the packaging (including make-up brushes)


This season is all about that eye appeal and elegance. Ombre matte palettes, glowing skin and captivating lip colours, – and this is just a little part of what’s on the ‘Clarins menu’.

These lightweight eyeshadows feature a unique cream-to-powder formula that works as a fine smoothing agent, providing quick application and long-lasting results at the end.

Rouge Eclat lipstick range sees 5 new shade additions this season.

I’m personally obsessed with this lipstick already as it’s smartly designed to protect lips again dehydration and boost collagen (which is especially beneficial) with a featured Mimosa, Jojoba and Sunflower plant elements, which also might explain the luxurious smell.

Featured on the photo: Rouge Eclat Satin Finish Age-Defying Lipstick in Shade 16.

Next on my list – Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base.

Perfect to brighten up the under-eye area or as a perfect base for eyeshadow, this product is definitely handy for all occasions, yet especially ideal to apply on-the-go.

The hottest AW14 beauty trend?

This season I envisage pointy nails, gold accessories, veil beanie hats, black lipstick and gothic vibes everywhere.
