A/W12 Trend: Berry Tones

London Fashion Week is less then a month away and whilst we prepare to swoon over what will be the next upcoming trends for Spring/Summer 2012, a dedicated post on some of this season's upcoming makeup trends seemed highly relevant. Earlier on this year, we saw London Fashion Week showcase an array of some magnificent and revolutionary beauty looks for Autumn/Winter 2012. Whilst we all remember THOSE Chanel embellished brows, one of the more 'wearable' beauty looks for this season definitely has to be berry toned lips.

Deep berry and purple hues on the lips will give this Autumn/Winter a touch of gothic flavour; think glamour meets grunge. Seen on the catwalk from Etro to Gucci, this is a trend that you won't be able to escape this season. This trend is very versatile and can be encompassed in many other looks this season. Try adding a berry lip to a bare-faced look for sophisticated glamour, I reccomend using a lipliner for precision; I like MAC's Burgundy lip pencil. Or instead capture two trends at once and combine this lip colour with an edgy and worn makeup look by adding a smokey eye and lashings of mascara; perfect for an evening grunge inspired look. This grunge look is ideal for those who don't have enough time to spend on perfecting your pout as when it comes to application, like a red lip, a berry lip can be tricky to apply.

For the look below I have applied Sephora's own Lipstick in Bewitch Me (pictured below), lots of mascara and eyeliner to create a smouldering smokey eye.


If lipstick isn't your thing, how about this polish from Nails Inc in Savile Row; the perfect shade of plum- it's my current favourite polish.

Will you be giving this trend a go? Let me know what you think and if you would like to see a video with more products that can be used to create this look then let me know! 


  1. This is probably my FAVOURITE trend for A/W 2012 - berry colours suit everyone and just look so rich and juicy! Love this colour - will get this when I'm over in Paris!! Thank you for introducing it to me :) x
