And with the changing seasons comes a whole host of new beauty trends to explore and experiment with. Pregnancy is the perfect time to get creative with your makeup, so check out our list of key styles for this season, and see which looks take your fancy!


Precious Metallics

metallic makeup trend


From Rodarte’s high shine bronzed lips to Donna Karan’s sultry silver eye shadow, the models strutting down the AW14 catwalks were bedazzled with sparkling metallics. This season try vamping up the classic smokey eyes look with a dusting of shimmering gold or silver eye shadow. Work this look with a chic black outfit, and match your jewellery with your metallic makeup!

Crazy Colour

Colourful makeup trend


Don’t wave goodbye to your bright summer shades just yet; vibrant neon colours applied in bold painterly strokes are set to take the colder seasons by storm this year! Dior’s sparkling blue eye shadow was a sight to be seen on the runway, and Chanel’s sweeping eyeliner styles in neon pink, teal and lime green stole the show. Dare to be different this autumn and accent your eyes with strong sweeping colours!

Wear it with:

Evergreen & Navy Nursing Wrap Dress


Retro 60’s Style

Retro makeup trends


Every new season draws inspiration from fashion decades gone by, and this autumn is all about the swinging 60’s! The wide-eyed lash-tastic looks at Versace, Rochas and Gucci were created by building up the model’s lashes with multiple coats of mascara and several sets of falsies. Rock a 60’s inspired look this season with doll-like long lashes, a bold liquid eyeliner flick and a striped maternity tunic!

Wear it with:

Blue & Black Striped Cowl Neck Tunic
Faux Leather Detail Maternity Treggings


Off Duty Ballerina

Soft pink makeup trend

Inspired by the Ballet Russe; the hair at Diane von Furstenberg was tied back in classic ballet buns, and the soft makeup in pastel shades of lilac, pink and nude created an ultra feminine look. This style is perfect for softening an androgynous trouser suit at the office, and will look fantastic paired with those iconic pink coats (which by the way, are stylish as ever this season!)

Wear it with:

Blush Pink Wool & Cashmere Luxe Maternity Coat
Tailored White Cropped Maternity Trousers
