If you're a busy working girl who might not be up for a slick bun and full glam, this year's top 2018 autumn winter fashion trends will be your go-to

Each year we wait for fashion weeks to roll out the red carpet for the newest trends in beauty and makeup. We follow the runways with hawk-eyes so we don't miss out anything, just as we did with the top 2018 autumn winter fashion trends. 

But unlike most years where autumn winter is often dark, bold and matte, this year's shows offered a reprise. The concepts were mostly based on gender equality and manifested into clean, powerful and don't-mess-with-me looks.

This meant that while there were a few rebel-esque looks, makeup looks were curated to show a strong woman with a radiant skin, bright red lips and sleek corporate hair. 

In some shows, the focus was also on long wispy lashes with the return of the mascara. The one common thread that bound all of these beauty looks together was how easy they are to replicate.

Top 2018 Autumn Winter Fashion Trends

And if you're a busy working girl who might not be up for a slick bun and full glam, this year's top 2018 autumn winter fashion trends will be your go-to. 

Discover these top 2018 autumn winter fashion trends as we take you through them. 

#1 Corporate chic

Lets start with the hair. This year, designers such as Alexander Wang put on display the looks of an executive power woman. Wang in particular brought back the 80s hair clip and the slicked-back fuss-free hair- a god-sent for every lazy girl.

The slick hair was accompanied by barely-there makeup to compliment his clean collection. Designers such as Dion Lee and Toga also went for clean and sophisticated looks. We recommend HANZ DE FUKO Quicksand (S$30) for a slick and clean look. 

#2 Bold reds

What can you do if you have a bold red lip on? Apparently, everything. A bold red lip is not just a makeup look, but a strong and confident woman's modest accessory. And designers including Alexander McQueen, Rochas and even Erdem showcased the bold colour. 

With just a swipe of a red lip, you can possibly change you entire look. These shows proved just that. While the rest of the makeup look was simple, emphasis was on the red lip. We recommend the LANEIGE Serum Intense Lipstick in 'Catch me Red' for those statement lips.

#3 Wispy lashes

The mascara is back and if you're already addicted, then you are on trend. Plus, let's be honest, its the lazy girl's hack to looking more awake and put together. Designers including Givenchy, Valentino and David Koma displayed feminine looks with wispy long lashes in their fall collections this year.

We recommend the cult favourite BENEFIT COSMETICS BADgal Bang! Mascara (S$21) for those long wispy lashes. Pair it with glowing skin and a touch of lip balm and you are good to go.  

#4 Radiant skin 

The skin trend that's currently in vogue is the radiant, well-primed and moisturised skin. A host of designers including Roksanda, Lanvin, Michael Kors and Christopher Kane showcased clear, radiant skin in their fall collections.

And if you want a lazy girl hack to always look presentable, we suggest you work a little on your skin. A glowing skin doesn't need layers of foundation or concealers. We recommend LANEIGE White Dew Original Ampoule Essence (S$80) to work on skin brightening and clear skin.

#5 Flushed cheeks

If simple and natural was the theme of the autumn winter collection, Prabal Gurung showed us how to incorporate a bit of flush into it. His models were seen strutting, in flushed cheeks that not only compliment his soft, velvet, feminine theme, but also enhanced the radiance of their skin. 

Clean skin, with a flush of colour was his go-to. Just as it cane be if you don't want to spend much time in your makeup. We recommend the BENEFIT COSMETICS Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain (S$21).
