A/W 2010: New Season Eyes

Excitement is building up here at Bella Queen headquarters as we move into the Autumn winter season. The weather is getting cooler, the leaves are changing colours and the kids are about to go back to school for the autumn term! and in the make up world, a new term has also started. So we thought, we take a look at what will be adorning our eyes this season.

Some images from
  • Eyeliner is big this season. Whether your rocking the Kohl pencil or a liquid eyeliner, the key is to make it work for you. Grungy or super sleek, just let YOUR personality shine through. Wings, flicks or straight lines, it up to you.
  • If you know us well, you'll know that we are very brow focused, so its great relief that the fashionistas are appreciating big and bold brows this season. Having said that, make sure they are also tamed and groomed. Fill in gaps with a brow powder palette or pencil and brush through with eyebrow gel to keep them in shape and place.
  • Contoured eyes in a natural palette is going to be huge, so check out Edward Bess or Burberry make up for sophisticated neutrals. This season is not about Christmas lights colours, but sticking to a basic palette of browns - rich and luxury shades like mocha, caramel, latte, toffee. Use these to define eye sockets and define underneath eyes as well.
  • Beauty editors are whispering about a 'no mascara' trend but unfortunately we disagree. If you want to follow the pack, go without (or maybe clear mascara) but for us, we'll still be coating our lashes in at least one coat of black for definition.   
Are you liking any of the make up trends for autumn/winter 2010? We'd love to hear from you.


  1. I'm digging all of it except the no mascara. That is just not happening chez Modesty Brown!

  2. Here, here, no mascara? what in the heavens does's that mean? lol. I'm glad brows are in, I love brows.
