Ever wanted to be ahead of the curb and incorporate some new makeup trends into your usual routine? Even though we’re still in the midst of winter, we have compiled a list of makeup looks which are sure to be huge, during the spring and summer months ahead.
Pretty-in-pink lip stains are a fun trend throughout the entire year, since they include a pop of colour into a mundane makeup look. Achieve this look by gently dabbing your favourite lipstick onto clean lips. Then simply add a touch of pressed powder over the top for the much-coveted stain effect.
We recommend: Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Vernis Glossy Stain, $50
Rather than getting eye-lash extensions, save yourself a bit of cash and work on volumising those natural lashes. Many lash serums help to strengthen eye-lashes and prepare them for mascara. Don’t forget to curl your lashes before carefully applying mascara to both the top and bottom!
We recommend: Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes, $40
Forget about that matte finish – spring is all about achieving a dewy look to your foundation. Swap those full coverage foundations for a much lighter application, so your skin can also breathe and catch a break. Tinted moisturisers and BB creams offer light coverage and work with the skins natural texture.
We recommend: BECCA Luminous Skin Colour, $68
Sometimes black eyeliner can prove to be too harsh – especially for girls with light blonde or strawberry blonde hair and a pale complexion. Opt for navy, purple or brown liners which bring a pop of colour to tired eyes, and will cheer up your entire look; minimal effort required.
We recommend: Revlon ColorStay Creme Gel Eye Liner, $24.95
A clever highlight and illuminating combination is often the secret to luminous and glowing cheekbones. A little goes a long way, so don’t try and pack it all on at the same time. Gently work the product into the skin with a damp beauty blender, or your ring finger since heat will allow it to set into a natural finish.
We recommend: Nars Illuminator in Copacabana, $48
