The Beauty Column: Autumn Beauty Collections


Autumn is an exciting time in the beauty world as there’s a slight shift in colour, tone and texture. Beauty brands fight to launch the biggest and best collections and there are some strong contenders this season. Topshop are set to take the beauty scene by storm as they’re launching their first ever range of foundations, primers and concealers. The foundation will come in four shades and thanks to the skin-tone adapting formula, have been designed to give a no makeup effect which sounds perfect if you’re coveting a clean cut Autumn look.


Topshop have ditched matte for glossy and are bringing out a range of peculiar cheek jellies with accompanying glossy lipsticks and nail varnishes. The colour palette ranges from coral to berry and the new products are set to hit the shelves this Autumn, along with a range of metallics – a finish which is already set to be bang on trend this season. They’ve opted for wearable shades including rose gold, a silver pink and mauve in the form of lipsticks, cream blushes and nail varnishes which will get a thumbs up from Topshop beauty fans.

Another one to get excited about is Revlon’s Boho Chic Autumn Collection. Revlon’s global artistic director – Gucci Westman – has created a new range which features rich, luxurious shades inspired by the elegance of Parisian beauty. The collection includes new Luxe Créme shadows – better known as cream eye shadows, and a new PhotoReady Primer and Shadow which is comprised of rich blues and greys. Revlon are jumping on the lip liner bandwagon with an interesting array of colours from royal blue and baby pink to fuchsia.


The beauty brand are also treating us to four new shades of the Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lip Colors in pinks and oranges and have thrown in some fabulous glittery and shimmery nail polishes for good measure. Glitter, of course, goes hand in hand with Christmas and the countdown has begun now that X Factor has returned, which pretty much means that the festive season is just around the corner. The Boho Chic collection is comprised of vibrant, timeless, classic colours which will slot perfectly into our Autumn makeup bags.

As Autumn takes full swing, other beauty brands are set to release new collections and I’ve got a feeling that the competition is going to be bigger than ever. It doesn’t look as if everyone is following suit which suggests that there will be collections to cater to everyone’s tastes. Whether you want to blend in with the crowd or try something a little daring and different, keep your eyes peeled to make sure you don’t miss out on anything fabulous.
