Autumn and winter might not be quite as highly anticipated by some of us as the summer months, but let’s all take a moment to appreciate those cosy vibes - thick jumpers, hot chocolate, spiced candles and lovely homemade soups with crusty bread all really hit the spot!
Just like in high street fashion stores and in cosy little coffee shops, the mood changes in the lash industry when the season shifts, and what was trending in the summer becomes a distant memory.
To help you prepare for the shift in season, we’ve put together our top 3 autumn/winter eyelash extensions trends, so grab your pumpkin spiced latte and your thick woolen socks, and let’s get cosy for a minute…
Kim K Styling
Okay, okay - this one isn’t exactly news, it’s ALWAYS on trend to have that coveted and sexy spiky finish. If you haven’t tried it yet, this is absolutely the time to do so! This lash styling can be applied to any lash map, so if you have one client who needs a Dolly style, and another who favours a Cat, both can still have a Kim K set!
To add the spikes to your lash set, use Flat Lashes or closed fans and apply them at regular intervals throughout the set! This video goes into more detail about how exactly to map a Kim K set!
Often overlooked, a chocolate brown lash set is to autumn/winter what florals are to the spring. Brown lashes are the most complementary for our very fair clients so you may already be accustomed to them, but if you’re not, now is the time to try something new!
Chocolate brown lashes give your look an extra layer of luxury, and a little bit of softness without taking away any of the drama from your lash set!
As much as we love a cosy vibe in the autumn/winter, we can’t overlook the fact that those cosy evenings by the fire are swiftly followed by the party season! Whether you’re looking for a fun look to go alongside your bonfire night plans, or something even more out there and eye-catching for new year’s eve, there is a colour and style for you!
It might seem odd at first to opt for coloured lashes when we’re so used to seeing black lashes, but there is so much you can do with a tray of coloured lashes! Maybe you just want a few volume fans on the bottom layer to give you a little pop of pink, perhaps you want to go all out with an electric blue set - you can even make your Kim K spikes with coloured lashes in a closed fan - the only limit is your own imagination!
Finally, the rise in popularity of the wet lash look isn’t likely to stop throughout the colder months. ‘Fresh out the shower’ glam made popular by the likes of Kim K’s 2019 Met Gala look and Megan Fox’s 2021 VMAs look proves just how on trend this overall aesthetic is. It screams effortless glamour.
The growing demand for the wet lash look is seemingly a nod to this trend. Closed volume fans create a spiky texture, creating the illusion of darker, fuller looking lashes - similar to the added depth given to natural lashes when wet.
We can’t wait to see these lash styles flourish as we move into autumn/winter 2021!
