The look: 60s style dolly lashes were all over the catwalk this SS16 and what better way to get your peepers popping than to accentuate them.

Achieve it: Create Twiggy-like clumpy eyelashes by applying multiple layers of volumizing mascara for extra-thick coverage. Tease your lashes and press them upwards with your mascara wand for extra curl and to maximize the clumpy effect. Go minimal on the rest of your makeup with mauve lips, a BB cream and neatly groomed eyebrows.

Black Cherry lips

The look: For a deliciously fruity pout try out cherry red lips this summer, a luscious new beauty trend for 2016.

Achieve it: First, you need to colour match a lip liner and lipstick in similar shades of deep red to get that ombré effect going on. Start by lining and filling your lips in with lip liner and apply lipstick on top for a pigmented, rich red colour. Get the glossy finish by topping your lipstick with a non-sticky clear lip gloss. We recommend NARS Satin Lip Pencil, Palasi Royal to achieve this shade,

The look: Glowing sun-kissed skin is all the rage this season, as everyone wants to look like they’ve just come back from holiday. Luckily, this look is easily achieved with makeup!

Achieve it: For skin that looks as bright as sunshine, start off with an even base and conceal imperfections. Perfect your strobing technique by strategically highlighting your cheekbones, forehead and the bridge of your nose, setting the look with a sheer powder. Brighten up your eyes with a champagne coloured eyeshadow, making sure to line the lower inner corners of your eyes too. Finish off the look with plenty of mascara.

Achieve the look with NARS Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Hollywoodland.

Sunset eyes

The look: Bright reds and oranges are bang on trend this SS16 and they’re just what you need to create California sunset eyes.

Achieve it: Keep your makeup to a minimum and focus solely on your eyes. Lighter skin tones should opt for coral eyeshadows, whereas tanned and darker skin can go brighter with shades of orange and red.

Romantic dewy skin

The look: Dewy skin is everyone’s idea of ideal skin. Try out this feminine look for a youthful glow approach to summer.

Achieve it: You want your skin to look hydrated and plump, so cleanse, tone and exfoliate before applying makeup. Apply a light tinted moisturizer to even out your skin tone and highlight your cheeks, brow bone and the bridge of your nose with a liquid highlighter for a fresh faced effect. Keep the rest of your makeup to an all-time low and hydrated those lips with a basic lip balm.

There you have it ladies. Enjoy the sunshine and watch this space for further makeup looks and beauty trends this summer 2016.
