Make Up Trends 2014

December 29, 2013

One of my favorite things about starting a new year is looking forward to all the new makeup trends and products. 2014 makeup trends are getting me very excited….from bright matt lips, sheer washes of shadow to natural nude makeup with a hint of bronze cheeks…. oooooo love it….

Spring Summer 2014 all seems to be about washing and go….
Hair  should be soft natural and relaxed, wash add some serum let dry and your done or pull back into a loose ponytail… easy (yipee).
Makeup has a similar  approach either nude skin just a touch of concealer, bronzer and balm on lips. Or a sheer wash of colour over the eyes or lips {berry colours were popular on the catwalks). For something a bit brighter try cobalt blue cream shadow smeared over the lid or bright matte orange or coral shades pressed onto lips with barely there bases.

Must have products….
To achieve these looks there’s nothing like a new selection of products to get your hands on.

The leading makeup brands have a host of new products ready and waiting to hit stores in the new year. In line with the spring summer trends here are a few of my favorites….

NARS Satin Lip Pencil (£18.00)
Not only are these super easy to apply they stay on really well and feel lovely to wear.  I love how they fit in you purse, pocket or glove compartment. Am loving the Coral and Baby Pink wear them with nude skin, nude eyes with a slick of mascara and Nars new illuminator across cheek bones.


MAC Nude Collection
You can always relay on MAC to bring out trend led products this Nude Collection is perfect of the natural glowing tanned skin  seen on the catwalks. These are my favorite picks to create a beautiful glowing look. Try wearing a sheer wash of Amorous Shadow over your eye lid with  Black Mascara. Apply Skinfinish in Magnegic Appeal to cheeks and Close Contact Lipstick on lips. Quick easy and very wearable as well as bang on trend.
