THE BEAUTY EDIT
Hooray! The days are getting longer, spring is upon us, so the time has come to revamp our beauty looks and the incredible Spring 2016 beauty trends we have to look forward to…
GLITTER, GLITTER, GLITTER
Glitter is back with vengeance, on the lid, on the brow, even on the face. Keep it simple with a glitter line across the lashline, the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Liners are great for this. Otherwise apply a high glitter eyeshadow over the lid (again Urban Decay has a brilliant glitter product – Moondust Eyeshadow). If you’re brave enough, apply Vaseline to your cheeks and drop the Mac Glitter Pigment onto the skin, it can look so incredibly ethereal. Glitter was seen all over the catwalks this season and looks incredible, even applied in the hair slick your hair back and drop into the hair line or parting for an extra sparkle. Basically there are no rules with glitter this spring, so go for it!
THE BLACK LINER
We all love a romantic Parisian liquid eyeliner flick, for Spring 2016 the line has moved, it can be more graphic and angular (you can use some surgical tape, to ensure the line is perfectly straight). Otherwise, draw the line way from the lashes altogether and across the crease of the eye as per the Giorgio Armani Prive show, or follow Make-up Artist Tom Pecheux’s lead, he created graphic line above and below the eye for Chanel’s show. Either way set the line with some transparent Finishing Powder by MAC to prevent the line from smudging.
THE COLOURED LIP
A tangerine red lip is back and I am delighted! Going into Spring I love to keep the skin flawless with a nude/bare eye and a perfectly applied coloured lip. Keep within the tangerine, light red and blood coral tones to keep your look on trend. If this is your look take time to apply, so you just have to top up the inner part of your lip for touch-ups. I always line the lip with pencil and bleed the line into the lip, apply the colour, blot, apply loose powder, then the lipstick again. This is a perfect way of keeping your colour on for a few hours, so fewer touch-ups needed.
