Beauty Trend Report FW2016: If you’re a lip girl…

December 8, 2015 by  
Filed under beauty, Fashion, Featured Items, Trends

I’m sorry, but did we just hear a sigh over there? A slightly annoyed sigh, breathing ‘here we go again, red lips bla bla’. Red lipstick doesn’t sound all to ground-breaking these days. But let’s not judge so quickly, shall we? Cause aren’t we as women just lucky bastards that we get to wear red lipstick every season, adding some extra something something to ourselves. Something that makes every woman slightly more attractive, sexy and elegant. That adds a little colour and sparkle to our sometimes hung-over pale faces (especially after last night during winter) and is the perfect compagnon to any nighttime (NYE!)event. For some it’s even a signature that really pulls us together. And if you’re not much of an eye girl, a red lip is your second best option. And the best part: it’s easy to recreate at home (bingo!). The only extra thing we need to do for now is tap into our 90’s mood again (I know it’s been long) and choose how deep and dramatic we’re prepared to go, because it can go quite deep this season. Follow Carolina Herrera’s and Donna Karan’s lead with Berry lips, or plum black lips as seen at Marc Jacobs. And what about a vivid crimson pout like Phillip Lim’s models? Tip: skip the red lipliner and use a clear lip pencil instead.

Beauty Trend Report FW2016: Flushed, dewy skin

December 3, 2015 by  
Filed under beauty, Fashion, Featured Items, make-up, Trends

One of the biggest -and trickiest- beautytrends for this fall concerns our skin. Our white canvas, the one we get to paint so many times. Like true Picasso’s we paint it every single day, even on our most natural days. You can use the most beautiful and bright colours and the most expensive make-up, but without a proper background you’re getting nowhere. And that’s where this one come’s in; dewy, toned-down skin. When it comes to radiance it’s very precise this time, only the high plains of the face. A semi-glow, like you’ve just been doing a very heavy and sweaty yoga glass. Like you’re shining from the inside out (which we hope you do). And the good thing is: it’s not too hard to pull it off ones you know the tricks. It’s all about hydration, good cleaning in the morning and before going to bed (otherwise it’s baaaad behaviour!) and the right use of sheer foundation. A touch of cream blush to create a natural flush to your face and cheeks to finish it off. Look at all this bright faces at Jason Wu, Stella McCartney and Chloe. Who doesn’t want to look like this on a daily basis? So let’s just all quit yoga and get this thing going.

Beautytrend FW2011: Roaring Red

Nothing’s more sexy, feminine and powerful than a woman with beautiful red lips and the designers know it.

The classic red lipstick is a huge trend this season. Between all the nude looks, we saw many pouts in different shades of red: rust, raspberry, cherry, scarlet, burgundy, carmine, fuchsia, wine and ultra pared- down red.  And from very shimmery to really matte.

There’s a lot to choose from, but finding the right one is not so easy.  It’s always good to pick one that matches your hair color and skin tone.  If you have a lighter skin tone, go for a red with a blue (cold) undertone, like fire red. When you have a darker skin, the orange- based (warm) shades will do well on you, like burgundy or deep red. Check out the photo’s to see all the different options…

Trend Report FW2011: Let’s Get Crazy! – Beauty

Ladies, don’t try this at home! Unless you’re up for some kind of theme party, of course. ‘Cause these crazy beauty looks are best worn only on the runway.

Golden bags under your eyes (Gareth Pugh), highlighted strong brows (Frankie Morello), the nose of a Dalmation dog (Unique), some colorful confetti (Gray) or just  a big splash of red paint (Viktor & Rolf), these were the craziest make-up looks we spotted for fall/winter 2011/2012.

Check out the gallery & get inspired!

Trend Report SS2011: To Brow Or Not To Brow

May 26, 2011 by

If we’re talking eye brows there are two major trends right now. Either you go with the bold and hairy brow, or you bleach to whole thing and make it (almost) disappear.

During fashion season these two big trends alternated each other on the runway. Alexander Wang, Blumarine, Erdem, Valentino, Marc Jacobs, Nina Ricci and Giambattista Valli went for the bleached brow. As where Prada, Ungaro, Stella McCartney, Armani, Dior and Gucci presented the bold brow.

Both are, of course, a bit extreme. But if you’re gonna have to choose between one or the other; the safest choice would be the thicker brow. Which means as much as: don’t pluck too much. Go for a natural full brow and remove only the most annoying little hairs between your eye brows; preventing the unit-brow look.

Look at these photos for some brow-inspiration.


Beauty Trends FW2010: Color your world

You need some guts to pull it off, yet if you work colorful make-up the right way, you’ll sure look stunning. Opt for red or pink eyeshadow (not too much though, you don’t wanna look like a vampire), some deepblue lashes and brightcolored lips.

Need some inspiration? Take a look at the Manish Arora models or get inspired by new rapper sensation Nicky Minaj, who is all about the bright colors.
