Frances, our Australian Brand Ambassador shares her inspiration for the current make up trends!
The latest couture runway shows has brought us some inspiring makeup trends that are going to be huge in the up and coming season. As we all know the past few seasons have been all about lips, from ombre lips, two toned, dark lips, bright lips, glossy lips, matt lips and so on. True to fashions forever rotating repetitive cycle the latest trends are all about eyes! This is exciting and fun as from my research there are a few different techniques being used.
Being in Australia we are very lucky when it comes to trends with makeup – We are a season behind Europe and America with our clothes but we can be a season ahead with makeup! NYFW Spring Summer 2015 is currently underway and we are going into our Spring summer now so instead of following last Spring/ Summer trends lets be ahead of the rest and be the first to wear them.
TREND 1: One trend/technique that I can not get enough of is “the focus on the upper eyelid” this is taking a whole new twist on the traditional Smokey eye and is extremely flattering for all as it opens and lifts every eye shape. Below are some inspirational images with a brief list of products that you could use to replicate them. They are great to use as a reference when educating our customers on what the trend is all about.
– Cream Pigment in Dab as a base all over the eyelid.
– Powder Eye Shadow in CanCan applied with an Eye shadow brush over the top Dab.
*a great lip to team with this look is Glamore Lipstick in Rosepout.
– Cream Pigment in Emerge as a base all over the eyelid.
– Powder Eye shadow in Hype applied with an Eye shadow brush over Emerge.
*a great lip to team with this look is Glamore Lipstick in Tease.
TREND 2: Another trend that is all over the runways are very graphic eye designs. This is varying from eyeliner techniques to block colors. This is always very impacting and a lot of fun.

-Use Lip Coloring Pencil in Spell as a base for the red.
-Apply Powder Eye Shadow in Daemon over Spell for added intensity.
*NOTE: Use a cotton bud with a small amount of makeup remover to clean the edges.
– It is best to use our Precision Gel Liner with an Angled brush for the liner.
TREND 3: The last trend I wanted to add in is one I think I am most in love with and also the one I think is going to be a HUGE craze. This trend is all over the runways and on almost every trend setting fashion blogger.
Graphic designs on nails! This is so fun, chic and feminine. Below are some images to get an idea of what I am on about…
– Use any of our Nail Varnishes with nail tape to create the slick lines.
