A new season calls for a make-up kit refresh. We breakdown this season’s key beauty trends and give you three of the easiest eye, nail and lip looks to help you crack the new season rules in make-up.
The new berry
The easiest way to wear dark lip colour is as a gloss or balm. You get impact without hardness, which can make some dark colours tricky to pull off. Whether you choose lipstick, gloss or balm, leave out lip liner and eyeshadow. The new dark lip needs a soft outline and no distraction.
The ballet plump
Make-up artists gave us beautiful ballet-girl lips of softest rose and lilac. The pale, satin sherbets, which volumise the lips so that they appear plump and juicy (especially when there is a light-reflective quality to the colour), are particularly suited to smaller mouths. Pink is most flattering on all skin tones when it is shot with a hint of lilac, appearing a little more edgy and making blue and violet eye make-up pop.
Everyone is still in love with cat-eye flicks, and the classic liquid-liner application – done with a flourished tick at the corner of each eye – still had presence on the runways.
Where once there were plain old talons, now there are stilettos; welcome to the new way to shape long nails. The difference between talons and stilettos is that the latter have a sharp point.
