Latest makeup trends 2014
Spring Beauty is here and the latest makeup trends 2014 are brighter and lighter to keep you fresh faced in these warmer months. Pink is a really big feature this spring, you may have seen my pretty in pink blogger challenge, it suits all skin types but gives a girly glow to the skin. It is such a complimentary colour and can be used to create an understated look, add pretty shimmer or add a punch of wow factor. If pink lips aren’t your thing then alternatively there is Orange Lips, the shade of the season. Other makeup trends to bare in mind are glowing skin, liquid eyeliner cat eyes and iridescent eye shimmer.
The hair trends this season include more edgy bobs, centre partings with natural waves, extreme side partings for curls, messy updo’s and plaits. I love extreme side partings and the textured plaits but the hair trend I am loving at the moment is the slept in rough texture. Texture is key in hair styling this season and the modern trend of lived in matte texture is something to embrace. I naturally have messy hair, I struggle to get it to look sleek and pristeen in place but this isn’t an effortless look to create, you will need different volumizing sprays, dusts, dry shampoo, sea salt sprays etc such as the BUMBLE & BUMBLE range.
False nail nail art are becoming more and more common, there is such a range that keep expanding and improving. If you love nail art but haven’t a steady hand this is a perfect way to spruce up your nails at home. The Ted Baker Faked to Perfection floral nails caught my eye as being slightly more elegant, perfect for spring with such beautiful colours. Elegant Touch also have a fantastic array of variations and nail wraps worth trying but are a little on the pricey side. If looking for a cheaper alternative I highly recommend the Primark false nails which I think I will do a post on soon. I’ve rated them for a long time, they aren’t too thick, can be trimmed down easily and have some fantastically quirky designs. You do need to file down the top too smooth them, like you do with many false nails, but the are only £1.
