1. METALLIC EYES
Eyes took the focus across the board with multi-toned metallic hues at centre stage. Be prepared to see this look hanging around for sometime – it won’t just be a one season wonder.
To try out the look, play around with the soft metallic tones of our powder eye shadow, Complement Palette. We are obsessed with this eye shadow palette. Its versatility allows you to flex your muscles, to create a subtle look or add some fun with a dramatic twist.
If you’re looking for a more creamy texture then go for our latest collection product, the Vintage Metallix. These beautiful pots of eye shadow haven come in three shades; Courtier (Vintage Nude), Embellish (Vintage Brown) and Bibelot (Vintage Green) (below)
2. THINK BIG
Big and bold lashes were a large part of this seasons focus – well, what did we expect? Big is beautiful.
When it comes to false lashes our, False Eye Lashes in Grandeur, are a great way to capture the look.
Easy to apply – these beauties are a great addition to any dramatic makeup style and promise to open and widen eyes.
3. SMOKY EYES
Whether you are a fan of heavy smoky eyes or like a lighter look, both are acceptable in this seasons trends. If you are looking for a heavy rebellious vibe our flawless, Limited Edition Sophie Smoky Eye Set will do the trick.
The smoky eye look can be difficult to achieve, without wanting to throw your eye pencil across the room. Fear not, we have a how to guide that gives you a step-by-step instructions to this show-stopping eye look.
4. YOUTH ON YOUR SIDE
Contouring and highlighting was seen throughout the couture shows. Careful shading and illuminating were used to highlight the face’s natural light and shade for a flawless take on neutral make-up.
To try out the look we recommend our fabulous, Skin Illumination set. Unlike anything on the market, our Skin Base Foundation is suitable for all skin types, is easy to apply and effortlessly creates a perfect complexion. Part of the kit, we suggest trying our Gleam’s lightweight, iridescent finish, that sensuously highlights the natural beauty of your face and body.
If you are feeling a little lost or fancy a bit of contouring indulgence, we run a Skin Sculpting Course that reveals our hidden tips and secrets to adding definition, light and dimension to facial contours.
5. KISS AND TELL
Natural beauty was infectious at the shows, with subtle sweeps of colour for lips. Having a nude lipstick is a makeup must-have bag necessity.
Try out our, Glamore Lipstick in Naked for a colour intense nude lipstick with a long lasting satin finish.
With every effort to ensure the colours on screen are as close as possible to the actual product colours, we cannot guarantee an exact colour match. But if you need a little guidance, try our nude shade selector and find out how to look good in the nude!
