Once your spring season wardrobe is in place, it’s time to embrace the ultimate accessory to your new look: makeup! But which of the catwalk’s trends will you choose? Check out our guide to making the top SS14 beauty looks work for you and your outfit, no guesswork required.
METALLIC SMOKEY EYE
Leather, sequins and metallic applique give the rock chick look a luxe update – take this almost wet-look finish to your smoky eye. Blend a steel grey shadow under the lower lashline, across the lid and diffuse the edges out to the socket. Add a dab of metallic shadow with micro-glitter particles to the centre of the lid and the inner corners of your eyes and top with lashings of black mascara.
Whether it’s a classic Bardot flick or smudged kohl, every season has its own reworking of graphic eyeliner. This spring, the line takes a minimalistic cue from the season’s simple silhouettes and unfussy fabrics. Such a bold look requires a flawless base – prep with a light foundation – and a really fine liquid liner with a pen-like applicator. Start midway across the lid, close to the lashline and finish in a blunt, slightly square tip.
PRETTY IN PINK
The perfect partner to your bohemian maxi dresses for weddings and weekends away, a girlish flash of pastel pink shadow makes for the prettiest statement. Work a sweep of matte pink shadow across the lid, blending up to the socket and matching up a soft blush and a nude pink lipstick. Check out our pastel tutorial video to perfect this look.
