Beauty | Get the perfect AW14 face

Beauty
While studying the AW14 beauty catwalk trends it became apparent that the two big looks of the season were the ‘no make-up’ make-up (Stella McCartney, Isabella Marant, Jill Sander, Philip Lim, Victoria Beckham) and lots of lashes (Versace, Rochas, Gucci, Prada, Topshop Unique), so why not combine the two! It makes the important features here the skin, brows and lashes to really make an impact and we’ve got the products to help you achieve the perfect catwalk look.

Beauty | Best Skincare Releases

Beauty

Skincare is a vast field and it’s easy to stick to one product or go to the other end of the spectrum and spend crazily trying everything new on the market. Beauty editor Salina Thind is here to take the hassle out of looking at the latest releases and narrows down her faves.

Beauty | New Product Must Haves!

Beauty

You know that feeling – you see an advert or simply a shiny, pretty new package on the shelf and think ‘I want that’ but who knows if it’s really going to work. And are you wasting those hard earn bucks on yet another mascara that promises lush lashes but delivers gooey clumps? Our beauty editor Salina Thind tells you which new products are worth taking home.

Beauty | TIGI Bed Head ‘Urban Antidotes’

Beauty

Got a thing for high heat, swimming, bleach or gallons of hairspray? Then it’s likely your hair is screaming for some loving, and Bed Head are stamping their mark on the follicle recovery market with the launch of their Urban Antidotes, which comes with three levels of TLC.

Beauty | Go Glitter

Beauty

If the LCM shows were anything to go by then a glitter resurrection could be on the agenda – Katie Eary completely covered models faces for her SS15 womenswear and Kay Kwok had adorned male models with some glitter for their AW14 show. It’s summer and glitter might go down a treat at a festival (but then again so do feathered mohawk hoods) but not all of us want to be walking down the high street with a face full of it. Try some of these great ways to incorporate glitter into your make-up without looking like a disco ball.

Beauty | Living the High Life

Beauty

Spring/Summer is always about fresh looking dewy skin but it’s a fine line between looking gorgeously glowing and just looking sweaty, so here are a few of my favourite highlighters that I like to use in my kit and how to use them!

Beauty | Trend: Pastels

Beauty

Pastels are a big trend for spring/summer and it’s a really fresh look to wear. One celebrity who does pastels well is Rachel Bilson – she doesn’t shy away from colour! You can go loud or go subtle, make your own rules.

Beauty | Trend: Blue-Eyed Baby

Beauty

Blue eye make-up was very big on the catwalks for Spring/Summer 2014 and it isn’t always easy to wear. It’s easy to incorporate a blue into your regular make-up look without looking like you’ve stepped out of a time machine from the 80s.

Beauty | Trend: Tangerine Kiss!

Beauty

The sun is out (kind of)  and it’s time to put those spring trends to the test! It seems that orange comes around every season and it’s probably because it’s such a wearable and flattering shade for all skin tones. Spring/Summer is generally when our make-up becomes fresher and more colourful and the easiest way to do this is to go for an orange lip like beauties Kate Bosworth, Nicole Richie and Jennifer Hudson.

Beauty | The No Fuss High Impact Face

Beauty

I’m all for a minimum effort, high impact make-up look. There, I’ve said it, I’m lazy when it comes to my own make-up. I like to be quick, I hate doing touch-ups but I want it to look flawless.  I don’t think you can go wrong with a bronzed face, lined eye and red lipped look, as Demi, Rihanna and Sienna demonstrate.

Beauty | Hair Slick

Beauty

For AW14, slick hair is most definitely in as seen on multiple catwalks, such as Donna Karen, Giles, Jonathan Saunders and Alexander Wang to name a few, this trend is loved by the top fashion houses. You’ve got a few months to get your hair in tip top condition!
