2017 – THE ERA OF NEW BEAUTY
The Spring/Summer make-up trends have officially landed! Girls put down the dreaded liquid liner and let out a sigh of relief….The defining make-up style for the upcoming season is minimal and effortless with just a dash of colour. No more Instagram style contour and ombré brows… this year o’natural is IN, and ‘onfleek’ is most definitely OUT!
Here are just a handful of looks that I will be right up your runway…
TREND 1: RELAXED RED
A statement red lip is always in style in my opinion. Obviously nothing speaks louder than a woman’s words, but a juicy shade of red smothered across our puckers comes pretty damn close if you ask me. According to this year’s catwalks, the way to wear our 50 shades of rouge in 2017 is ALONE!! Basically the runway bowed down to naked skin, natural brows and minimal shadow…designers added a striking red lip to beautiful blank canvases which exploded into a winning combination.
“A fresh face with a red lip is timeless. It’s super-modern and relaxed but very chic” Francis NARS

TREND 2: COLOUR WASH EYES
Eye make-up was as vibrant and as flawless as ever this season. No colour was off limits, the bolder, the better. Designers took a step back in time and awakened the 80’s with vivid wet look shades blended to perfection. Dewy lids and smouldering shades splashed down the catwalk upon some of the world’s most beautiful faces. I predict this watercolour trend will be around for more than just a blink of an eye. Find your inner artist and paint your way to exquisite eyes.
TREND 3: GLITTERED ALL OVER
Dramatic glitter lips dazzled down the catwalk. During the Fendi and DKNY shows, glitter cuticles popped up at Rodarte and glitter eyeshadow arrived with a bang on the Marc Jacobs runway. Gone are the years of only pulling out your special sparkle for New Years… now, it seems perfectly acceptable to rock up to the office with a glitter eyebrow or two.

I recommend trying the glitter-tastic palettes from Glitters Eyes. They come in every shade imaginable and are great paired with their metallic eyeshadow range.

READ MY LIPS
So…when striving for the perfect pout, not all of us get off to the best start. Forgetting to keep your puckers healthy may just be the reason your lips don’t look quite as juicy as Angelina Jolie’s. In order to get the most out of your lipstick, you have to make sure your lips are smooth and well taken care of from the get go. There’s no need to purchase expensive lip scrubs and designer exfoliators, instead head to the kitchen and cook up a perfect pout potion all of your own.
Give this a go….
Measure together equal parts of brown sugar, olive oil and vanilla extract. Gently massage on your lips for a couple of minutes, then wipe off with a damp cotton pad and whallahhhhh irresistible lips!!!
