We saw a variety of make-up styles during the latest Fashion Week. However the trends for the season will be on the eyes, without any doubt. Glow and flawless skin is a perfect base for everything, no need to put too much colors on cheeks and lips, keep them to a minimum and let your eyes pop.
Which makeup trends is your personal favorite, and why?
I am especially obsessed with the dark eyes and silver liner as seen at the Emporio Armani show. It is a very strong look with solid black all over the eyelids, the metallic silver liner perfectly softens the gothic darkness. It is a great look for Asian girls who want their eyes look bigger.
You can also play with fake eyelashes, the trend of the 60's is back, don't be afraid to go dolly, go extreme!

Every trend has (sometimes) also a 'countertrend'. Is there a makeup trend you personally would like to see catching on, even if it has not been 'pushed and promoted' on the latest catwalks?
I personally would like to see some glittery or sparkly materials on the eyes, Fall/Winter is more about texture, we don't really get to use much colors for beauty, however, wouldn't some touches of 'bling-bling' make the catwalk shows more exciting?

Your personal advice (or favorite makeup or skin care product) for the woman who wants to take good care of her skin/look also during the cold, winter season.
I prefer to use natural products for skin care, rose water is one of the best gifts from mother-nature, it keeps your skin soft and moisturized. Use Aloe Vera as calming mask twice a week if the cold weather dries your skin. I trust some reputable companies too, La Roche-Posay and Avene products are designed for sensitive skins, they carry a nice range of products for dry skins.
I recently started using a product line from Kate Somerville, I prepare the models' skin with the Goat Milk Cream before applying foundation, it works great in keeping the skin hydrated under makeup.
If you feel your skin gets dry after cleaning with make-up remover and foam, try their moisture milk cleanser, it is gentle and sulfate free, perfect for winter dry skins.
