How To: Wear The Spring/Summer 2014 Beauty Trends!

Okay – so, the fashion world have been focused on designers’ set of Autumn/Winter trends, but we’re only just heading into spring. Join us as we rewind back to September 2013’s Fashion Week and see how you can achieve the hot-right-NOW trends yourself:

Bare-ly There Base

SEEN AT: Alexander Wang. Balmain.

HOW TO: This season, bases were as pared back as it comes, with a hint of concealer to create über natural bases. Let your natural complexion shine through with a touch of (well-blended) concealer to cover up any blemishes or discolouration. Benefit Boi-ing’s creamy formula is blendable and super long-lasting.

Look-At-Me Liner

SEEN AT: Feline flicks at Stella McCartney. Smoky drama at Erdem / Versace.

HOW TO: A gel eyeliner is the most versatile of the liner family – you can smudge it into the waterline or trace out a 60s-style flick with a fine brush – like this conveniently angled easy-to-use one by Laura Mercier. We’re big fans of their Tightline Cake Eyeliner too, the rich colour stays put and doesn’t get cake-y.

Hot Lips

SEEN AT: Rag & Bone. Topshop. Mary Katrantzou.

HOW TO: LAQA & Co.’s easy-to-apply chubby pencil in Lambchop is a fab, fun fuchsia perfect for spring/summer. If these matte, highly-pigmented formulas make you nervous, Vasanti’s Lipshine in Red Sea is a letterbox red in a sheer, glossy finish.

Disheveled Twists

SEEN AT: Tom Ford. Michael Kors.

HOW TO: The lazy girl’s up-do – apply a ton of texturising products throughout strands – like KMS California’s Sea Salt Spray – to add volume and grit. Love it!

Spring Sparkle

SEEN AT: Tortoise-shell at Rodarte. Marian Newman applied hundreds of eye-catching Swarovski crystals at Giles.

HOW TO: Get the glam effects of Swarovski crystals, without the insane price tag, using Nail Rock’s array of fun nail textures and designs. We’re partial to the purple and green gems of Neptune.

    I’ll be doing the Bare-ly there look, with maybe a few occassions of Look-at-me-liner, when out and about. I also love the Dishelved Twists, especially for an outdoorsy girly :)
