Beauty Looks We Cant Ignore 2016

HAIR: BRAIDS

Braids have always been part of Springs catwalks but this time they are here to stay and they come in all shapes and  styles.From Kim Kardashian and baby North wearing matching tight wet look braids to Sienna Miller wearing softer boho plaits we can all get in on the action.Raven love Redken Braid Aid a soft styling lotion that can be applied in dry hair to gain control while plaiting and with just enough hold to keep it in place without looking stiff.

MAKE UP : BLUE

Blue blue everywhere.This makeup look dominated the runway this season.I (for sure)thought this look was never going to see the light of day again after the 80s but channeling everyone from Debbie Harry to Bowie the little slick of electric blue is prominent everywhere. Models wore a hint of electric blue eyeliner over their smokey eyes to full on metallic blue eyeshadow in all its blazing glory.Remember to tone down the lip if you are trying this trend and keep the eye as the focal point.

NAILS:COLOURED TIPS

Seems like metallic is not  just for eyes this season.Nails on the runway where every shade and texture or metallic there is. Our favourite is matte silver!!!! Other looks where hot coloured tips with a nude base a la Veronica Beard.A great way to keep looking stylish even when your work clothes are drab.

TAN:BRONZE

Bye bye lily white skin and hello bronze.Sunkissed skin is gracing the catwalk with highlighted collarbones and decollatage.Checkbones are shining and freckles are out.Looking like you have just had a really long rest in the sun or just got off a yacht is what its all about. Get bronzing  peeps.A gentle glow is what its all about.

LASHES

For the last few seasons mascara hasn’t even been a feature and almost non existent on the catwalk.But  this season sees the return of the lash.Shapes are different this year with focus on the centre of the eye.Ask your therepist to add volume and lenght through the centre and taper out at the corners for a doe eyed look. Try Novalash the new lash extensions or our favourite mink ones.For mascara

LASHES

For the last few seasons mascara hasn’t even been a feature in any of the collections and almost non existent on the catwalk.But  this season sees the return of the lash.Shapes are different this year with focus on the centre of the eye.Giving more lenght and volume to the centre of the eye gives a doe eye look that is irresistible.Not many of us have this naturally but we can achieve this look with a little help.Ask your lash expert to add lenght through the centre of the eye.Try mink lash extenstions,or we are also loving Novalash.
