1. Stained lips
There is something so sensual about a stained lip—not only does it give a soft faded wash of colour across the lips, but it’s so lightweight you might even forget it’s there. One of the best things about lip stains is the fact you don’t need to worry about if it’s smudged or find a mirror to touch it up after eating. And when the stain does begin to fade throughout the day—even better.
2. Eye Candy
As long as face masks reign supreme beauty fans will adapt, which means this season it’s all about the eyes. So it’s no surprise to see neutral colours are out, and eyeshadows and liners in bright pops of colour are taking centre stage on the runways and in real life. Experiment with colorful liners and textured shadows in azure blue, emerald green, and even sunshine yellow.
3. Monochrome Moments
Remember the ‘no make-up make-up’ trend? Well, it seems that’s not really going anywhere but there is a new take on the minimalist trend with monochrome make-up. Think of it as elevating your natural look while still keeping your look pared back. To tie your face together, choose one product in a subtle pink or berry shade that you can use as an eyeshadow, lip tint and blush. Trust us, it’ll give you that lift you’ve been looking for.
4. The Graphic Eye
If, like us, you’ve only just perfected the liquid liner cats-eye flick you’re going to need to get practising again. The graphic eye sees eyeliner not just hugging the lash line anymore, but floating above the eye, along the eye socket or even underneath the lower lash line. This really is a creative twist on a classic look whether you opt for traditional black or try a white or coloured liner.
5. Retro Nails
We’ve seen it all when it comes to nails, and right now retro nails are what it’s all about.
Think swirly squiggles and shapes which stand out from the natural negative space of your nail. If a full hand is too much, try just one feature nail to test the waters.
