The spring trend edit

Trends take the sartorial lead this season, so take your style and beauty cues from the runways

BOYS BROWS

It’s time to upgrade your defined over-arched eye-brows to the boy brow. Straight, sleek and semi-groomed, this look is easy to achieve (just brush your brow up and hold with a tinted brow gel) and it frames your face for a youthful look.

SUPER STRIPES

Say it with stripes. Black and white make an impressive combo and varied widths give them a lively twist for more casual silhouettes.

GARDEN PARTY

There is nothing more mood-boosting than feasting on florals. From dainty blooms to the more daring dark-ground florals on black, you’re always on-trend in a floral print.

get barrelled

… in more ways than one. Barrel bags are just as versatile for beachside vacations as they are for inner-city slicking.

glitter girl

Glitter appeared more subtle last season, in the form of a swipe on the eyelid or a few sprinkles on the cheekbone. Fast-forward to 2017 and it’s all about more is more – think full on glitter lips, eyebrows and nails.

cut crease

Instead of a beautifully buffed smoky eye, the goal of a cut crease is to create a starkly defined arc that separates your lid from the brow bone. The colours above and below the cut crease can be blended, but the line should be ultra sharp. The result? A very dramatic look that makes your eyes pop!

MELLOW YELLOW

Yellow is symbolic of the warmth and vibrancy that comes with spring – and it’s the feel-good factor of the season.

get knotted

gloss

Adding dimension, shine and a youthful element, even eyelids and cheekbones (not just lips)received the shimmer treatment. Although high-lighters and illuminators also impart shine, gloss’s dewy, wet texture puts the spotlight on the features you want to highlight.
