Spring Beauty Looks: How to wear the top ten beauty trends for Spring
Take cues from the top catwalk trends to recharge your beauty bag this spring, with ten key looks, focusing on four main areas (it's all about eyes, lips, hair and nails this season!), that will serve you well way into summer. While pops of colour reigned supreme, most notably on the eyes and lips, nails were turned down a few notches, with pale neutrals and pastel shades showing up where over-the-top nail art left off. Interestingly, hair took two juxtaposing stances, meaning there really is a takeaway for everyone. To get the low down, we have your spring 2015 beauty handbook right here.
Lip ServiceRadiant Orchid
Pantone's colour of 2014 has made quite an impact already this year. Test out the hue on your pout with Shiseido's Shimmering Rouge in PK408, or, for those not brave enough to wear radiant orchid on their visage, you can always purchase a purple makeup accessory from Danielle to satisfy this trend.
Spotted on the runways at DKNY, Prabal Gurung, Rag & Bone, DSquared2 and John Galliano, the matte orange pout is back with aplomb. Make this look all your own with a luscious lip shade like Clarins Rouge Eclat in Juicy Clementine. Bonus, this lipstick contains anti-aging ingredients and is super nourishing!
Peepers With PowerBlue On the Eyes
An '80s reboot is on the rise, with hits of blue shadow and liner at Marc Jacobs, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Badgley Mischka and Prada. For high impact, use Nars Eye Paint in Solomon Islands all over your lids, or for a more subtle take on this far-out trend, simplify things by using it as an eyeliner.
Golden & Bronzed
The teams at Calvin Klein and Jason Wu took the lids of their model crew in a whole other direction this season, and one with staying power. Metallic hues, specifically gold and bronze, made for a warm and sultry statement on the catwalk, and will do the same when paired with bronzed, sunkissed skin. Try either Juice Beauty Illuminating Eye Colour in Champagne or the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow.
Benefit's Brows A-Go-Go set allows you to shape and fill-in your brows on-the-go, creating a look worthy of Brooke Shields.
The StrandsMessy Braids & Updos
Allow your hair's natural texture to enhance a relaxed look, done in deconstructed braids or a messy up 'do, as seen at Michael Kors, Rachel Zoe and Rebecca Minkoff. Spritz on Ojon's Volume Advance Thickening Spray to add oomph to your locks before you style into an unfussy, daytime-perfect look.
The Deep Side Part
Give your hair a styling break, while keeping in step with the latest trends, by combing Salon by Sally Hershberger Smooth Fix through your strands, using a fine tooth comb to create a deep side part. Tie hair back into a low-slung ponytail or wrap your locks into a chic chignon. And head out the door!
Nail ReduxPale & Pastel
Classically pared down nails, perfect for resetting after your latest nail art creation, in pale hues and pastels were seen on multiple catwalks this season. A perfectly pretty excuse to take things down on a notch on your digits. Here's two: Bobbi Brown's Nail Polish in Pale and Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish in Flowers in her Hair.
