Make Up 2.1.

Spring Ready

Embrace the fresh colours and outrageous style of the season. We bring you the essentials of Spring 2017…

Winter’s over, but summer is not quite here. Between and betwixt too-dry skin and the frantic need for enormous amounts of deodorant lies the ephemeral spring. Associated with romance and the blossoming of all things new and beautiful, this is the perfect time to cast off the beauty trends and looks of the year gone by and set you own!

Send me no flowers…

…said no woman ever and make-up trends for this season agree whole-heartedly. Make-up in floral hues is hot and you are encouraged to go all-out. Streak your eyes with pale blue liner and pink eyeshadow (though not together). Get yourself that forest-green or teal eyeshadow you’ve been coveting and lay it on your lids with perfectly drawn, thick black eyeliner. Or, if you’re really feeling daring, go the opposite way.  Use deep-green eyeliner on your upper lids and black and grey shimmer eyeshadow. Give yourself a little green flick at the corner of your eyes for that feline look.

Fresh-faced

It’s all about dewy innocence and subtly pink cheeks this season. Leave off the fake tanning and excess foundation and ensure whatever you’ve used (liquid or powder) is in sync with your skin tone. Apply your blusher on the apple of your cheeks for a clean, natural look (go for peach or pale pink). You can also leave the face as clean as possible and go for drama on the eyes. Lashings of mascara, blue/green or even hot-pink liner and shadow, you get the picture.

Shine on

Shimmer is all you need this season and metallics are in. Who says you can only wear gold and silver during festival time? Bring on the glitter, be it shimmery silver eyeshadow or highlighter. While you may want to tone down the shine during the day, you could still use a hint of pale gold or metallic blue for your eyes.

Red signals

While it initially looked as though pale lips would take over the fashion scene, there was a dramatic turnaround at most of the Fashion Weeks as models with lips in scarlet, berry and blood-red sashayed down the ramps. From Marilyn Monroe to Scarlett Johansson, red lipstick has been around for a long time and never really went out of style. If you don’t want to go all-out with the red, mix it up with a dusky pink or merely dab it on, then use a second coat with another colour. We recommend Colorbar Soft Touch Lipstick in Hot E-1 or Maybelline Colour Sensation Moisture Extreme Lip Colour in Fatal Red. For you daring damsels who like to spice it up, try Deborah’s Atomic Red Mat Lipstick or Diana of London 2,000 Kisses Wonderful Lipstick in Crimson Red. Trust us, you will stand out in the best way possible.
