Whether you’re into a bold lip, smoky eye or flawless foundation, we have put together our top choices of the runway trends to try now.
The reverse smoky eye at Roberto Cavalli
The smouldering, sexy new way to wear a smoky eye is upside down – “reversed”, with the dark, smoky layer placed under the lower lashes, matched with a light shadow on the eyelids. This gives the eyes a sultry, yet old-school type of look.
Big Lashes at Blumarine
Mascara is back in a big way and, right now, one coat is no longer enough. Lashes need to be messy and layered up!
TOP TIP: Curling lashes before applying mascara gives them great shape. To catch every lash, warm up your lash curler with a hairdryer or warm water, clamp your lashes for 10 to 15 minutes, and then release. It makes such a difference.
Liner on the waterline at Victoria Beckham
The fastest way to smoulder that’s easy and modern: add black kohl along the inner lower rim of the waterline – it’s a great way to “discreetly” add definition and make lashes look way thicker.
Flawless foundation at Michael Kors
Base is back! Right now it’s all about skin that’s blushing, with foundation as your true friend. On smoothed, polished skin, a great base helps to hide pigmentation marks, as well as an uneven skin tone, in moments.
Two toned lips and cheeks at Chloé
Okay, so you’ve got as near to flawless, luxurious skin as possible; the trick to prettifying your face now is to create the “tonal flush” by making lips and cheeks (even a hint on the eyes) match as one, in those outdoor pale-pink and blush tones. Blend softly over the cheeks, lips and the bridge of the nose, too.
Plum lips at Dolce & Gabbana
At the shows there were nudes, rosy pinks, purples and plums, but not a true red in sight. So if you’re after attention, opt for a more classy plum lip instead.
