(previous page) BIG RED :: This spring, borrow a page from the fairest in the land… well, sort of. Rather than “lips as red as blood,” try a perky and crisp candy apple shade, as seen at Dolce & Gabbana. We suggest skipping the liner and going for a satin finish for a softer effect; you are channeling Snow White, afterall. Tip: Pair this look with a neutral-coloured shadow on the eyes, while matching blush to the natural hue of your cheeks. (this page) KIND OF BLUE :: From Chanel to Diane von Furstenberg, blue hues were “it” for eyes on the SS16 runways. For dramatic effect, a blue eclipse over lids is a head-turner, but for those wanting a more wearable version of this trend, try tracing a delicate line of blue just above the lashes. Tip: For a daytime look, use a cake eyeliner in a green-tinted blue and enjoy high pigment with long-lasting benefits.
SIXTIES SWING :: Statement eye lashes can seem an intimidating beauty look, but there are more street-friendly ways of wearing this trend than modeled by the futuristic beauties headlining Marni’s SS16 runway show. The key to this look is ultra-long lashes (we recommend false ones) and a mascara that helps keep them clump-free. Tip: Apply mascara on an angle, section by section, to get a piece-y, more Twiggy-esque appearance.
BE A PEACH :: We fell in love with the beauty blueprint designer Erdem Moralioglu chose for his eponymous line this season. To turn this trend into an office-friendly option, opt for a pale peach colour that reads near neutral when applied to lids. Tip: Beach-up this look with bronzed cheeks, dusty rose lips and a mane of waves.
THE COLD ONES :: Gothic glamour with a minimalist twist is best achieved with a vamp lip, as seen at Givenchy. Let your pout take center stage and go for simple matte skin with light shading around the contours of your cheekbones. Tip: Try a lipstick with a matte finish for a high impact look.
