Purple eye shadow was seen on several Spring/Summer 2015 catwalk shows including Vera Wang, Derek Lam and Matthew Williamson. To nail this trend, experiment with bold purples, innocent lilac’s and enchanted lavenders. For a show-stopping look place the eyeshadow on your eyelids or for a more subtle look sweep under lower lash-lines.

Red lipstick is here to stay and admittedly will never go out of style. There are various ways to wear red lipstick; you can be a 1950s retro icon with a classic red lipstick,  all the way to a punk rock diva in a dark and dangerous red. There is a red lipstick to compliment each and every women on this planet regardless of style, personality and complexion so there is no excuse to not own one. To get the perfect look and not have lipstick smudging and bleeding, remember to line your lips with a lipliner.  For maximum impact add a lip plumping gloss over your lipstick for luscious full captivating lips.


Glowing Complexion

Last Year was all about the natural matt complexions, this year it’s all about the glow, Luminous complexions were seen all over the spring/summer 2015 catwalks and thanks to celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley having a radiant complexion is highly sought after. To Achieve the look you can wear foundations that promise to glow or luminous, if you don’t want an all over glow then you can buy shimmer eyeshadow in natural skin-tone colours and place them on your cheekbones, bridge of your nose, centre of your forehead and middle of your chin.


The Low Pony Tail

For a laid black, simple and flawless look, give low ponytails a try. For that extra factor try adding twists, braids, curls or even accessories.
