Trick: Exfoliate lips with natural ingredients

One of the biggest beauty trends on the catwalk for SS16 is red lippy. Red lips are a total classic but this season it’s all about achieving the truest red, the reddest red and the perfect red carpet red. Leave eye makeup to a minimum, skin fresh and dewy (step away from the fake tan) and make your look all about the lips. But don’t forget to exfoliate them using a natural homemade scrub to keep them looking luscious and lovely.

TREND #2 // SHIMMERY EYELIDS

Trick: Use a light coloured eyeliner 

Shimmery or glittery lids are a go this spring/summer so don’t be afraid to experiment. But remember to keep it looking simple, natural and understated. A fresh face is key so some shimmery eye colours can really help to create a healthy, pretty glow. If shimmer shadows are a step too far your everyday makeup style, try a light coloured eyeliner such as the Barry M Champagne Gel Eyeliner and create a thick line with a side wing.

TREND #3 // BRUSHED UP BROWS

Trick: Nourish with coconut oil at night

Brushed up brows are huge for SS16. But this look isn’t easy to achieve when you don’t have much brow to work with. Never fear brow burdened beauties, if you’ve over plucked just make sure you start taking care of your eyebrows going forward. Use a small dab of coconut oil to keep them nourished at night and use a good quality brush to groom them.
