We have seen SS19 strut the catwalk in fashion, interior design and now in make-up. As Wednesday welcomed the first day of spring we cannot wait to share our favourite products, inspirational looks and killer must-try trends with you.
More is more!
The world's most loved supermodels walked the catwalk with bold lips and striking eyes in a rainbow of colours. A combination of a colour eye, cheek and lip is a must this season. We love the very accessible L'Oréal x BALMAIN riche colour lipstick, available in Boots or Harvey Nichs (whichever you find yourself in on a Saturday afternoon!), to create this look, offering a multitude of shades including blue, bronze and velvet red.
For the eyes we sense orange is here to stay - and we couldn't be more pleased! We love the latest trends of high arched sunset orange with a mixture of bronzed golds, darker browns and a stunning lash to finish. One of our favourite products this month has been the Profusion Siennas palette. The pigments are strong, colours are fierce and a palette we could use to create looks every day of the week!
Shine bright like... metal?
A recent trend we have seen, and would love to get your thoughts on, is a bold, very shiny metallic lip. Backstage at Jeremy Scott, MUA Kabuki inspired us with a lip pencil in Edge to Edge by Mac Cosmetics, then added Mixing Medium Eyeliner in thin layer over the entire lip. He then used a combination of MAC Dazzleshadow Liquid in Love Yourself, and MAC Glitter in Pink to create the most dazzling runway (and night out!?) look. Yay or nay?
No makeup, makeup
As the sun begins to shine we have to switch up our makeup routine to be a little lighter than usual. For those warmer-than-ordinary days, a no makeup look is a great go-to, especially to make the most of every moment in the sunshine (but please, don't forget your SPF!) We recommend Nars Sheer Glow for an amazing coverage at the same time as being lightweight, breathable with a natural-looking finish.
The finishing touch - eyebrows!
Eyebrows are firmly here to stay, thank goodness. There's nothing better than achieving that perfect arch and full definition. To finish off, we cannot forget one of our handbag essentials, Benefit 24 Hour Ready, Set, Brow! Eyebrow Gel - this magic formula shapes and tames brows and locks on makeup to keep them where they need to be, all day long. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
