Some S/S Beauty Trends I'm Looking Forward To...

Hurrah! Summer officially begins in 3 days - so it's time to say good bye to burgundy hues and porcelain skin, and say hello to bright coloured lipsticks and tanning mits.

 The S/S 12 catwalks displayed an array of different makeup trends, ranging from an avant-garde, colourful, doll inspired look at Meadham Kirchoff, to a slightly more wearable coral lip at Erdem. If you are feeling slightly out of sync with what trends to wear this season, take a look at my top three looks and see what tickles your fancy.

Bright Coloured Lips


A prerequisite for S/S each year. Why? Because it's so versatile and easy to wear. Use
the lipstick as a stain or paint on the layers for a powerful coral punch.This look goes 
perfectly with a sun kissed tan, bushy brows and a sweep of black mascara.


Pastel Nails

Satisfy your sweet tooth by choosing one of these pastel shades to keep your bare nails company this summer. Don't be afraid to mix it up with two or more shades, the more resemblant to neapolitan ice cream, the better!


Bronzed Skin

If the Michael Kors s/s show was anything to go by, it's time to get down to your nearest Boots and pick up a bottle of St Tropez. The models looked like they had just stepped off the plane from a week in the Greek Islands. WARNING: Try not to get too carried away, we are aiming for a natural shade of brown - not a TOWIE orange spray paint job.

For an everyday gradual tan, try St Tropez Naturals Self Tan Lotion £26.59
For an instant tan, try Rimmel Instant Matte Tan £6.99

So there you go, three of the hottest beauty trends for Summer to get you started. Don't be afraid to get experimental, have fun with them!
