This is part two of our two part series featuring the best beauty trends from this season, so make sure you go and check out part one. Whether you prefer ultra glam or more of a natural look, we have you covered.

Straight and Sleek

Forget heading to the salon for a weekly blow out, this season the focus is on poker straight, high shine hair. If you aren’t a fan of wearing your hair down then try a low ponytail slicked close to your head and worn straight down your back.


buttonPink is popping up again this season. You can adapt this tread easily to suit your own style. For a more natural look create a rose like flush over your cheeks, lips and eyes. Lightly apply soft shades of pink for a sheer finish. If you prefer to make more of a statement then go for a slick of magenta to your lips for a real pop of colour. You can even apply shocking pink eyeliner.

Sixties Lashes

Channel your inner Twiggy with bold, doll like lashes. We love exaggerated lashes but if you fancy a more subtle take on the trend choose a navy blue mascara instead of jet black, or create a slightly clumpy, slept in look which we saw on the catwalk at Topshop Unique.Jaeger

The “Banana”

Stay with us on this one. In case you don’t know, the banana is the curved crease in your eyelid. Here you can apply liner or eye shadow to create more of a wide eyed look.  For inspiration look to the sixties for a black arc of liner, again seen on Twiggy. You can also try applying some colour. One of our favourite looks was at Tom Pecheux and it featured fuchsia liner to the lash line and then a contrasting colour washed over the lids and into the crease.
