Brown Lipstick

As the nineties beauty trend is still going strong, I’m seeing a lot of brown lipstick everywhere.

Its definitely a classic nineties look

And it looks great with updated modern makeup.

A great brown lipstick that people are going bonkers for is this Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Birkin Brown (£23)

slightly cheaper are these Bobbi Brown Lipsticks in Brown and Chocolate (£19.50).

And this Iillamasqua lipstick in Shard (£18.50)

This one is good for transitioning into the trend because it has a red tinge.

They’re all very Kylie Jenner.

The Queen of Winged Eyeliner

Since Nicki Minaj’s make-under, she has been sporting some wicked eye-liner. Her makeup artist, Joyce Bonelli, may have been responsible for some more disastrous looks in the past but she really redeemed herself by simplifying Nicki’s look down to one classic, staple feature.

Nicki’s makeup at NYFW was the best eyeliner I’ve ever seen

FIERCE!

It’s undeniable, Nicki Minaj is the Queen of the Winged Liner.

2015 beauty trend predictions

The 90s had a comeback in 2014. So it follows suit that the 00s will be the next big thing. Therefore here are the looks I predict to be big in 2015:

  • White girl micro braids

Christina-Aguilera-Color-Beaded-Micro-braids

  • Bad fake tan

girlsaloud-gal-02

  • Thin eyebrows

  • Crimping

  • Blonde hair with black underneath

Basically anything Xtina did.

I recommend taking cover and waiting for it all to blow over.

Milan Fashion Week SS15 Beauty Roundup

Some more familiar looks from NYFW popped up at Milan, reinforcing the coming beauty trends. And one unique look that stole the show for me. But first, the confirmed trends:

Side Parting

As seen at New York and London, it looks like the side parting is here to stay. Square faced girls everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief

Warrior Braids

Just like at New York. This look is so Mother of Dragons. To recreate, section off your hair into three parts and dutch braid each part, coming together at the back of your hair for a ponytail or bun. Or keep braiding each section to the end for a more edgy look.

Doll Lashes

Another repeat. I can see why. It’s easy to recreate and it’s pretty.

Graphic Liner

This is a simple one to copy, with a decent gel liner. I use Mac’s Fluidline in Blacktrack (£15.50) and the best brush I’ve found is the Bobbi Brown gel liner brush (£18). Experiment with different looks and shapes, and if you mess up, just pretend it was on purpose.

Simple Glam

D&G really won it with this simplistic, old Italy glam look. Similar to the Burberry look at LFW, the wine stained lips look classy and they have added a cat eye flick which makes it more of an evening look than Burberry’s bare eyes.

That’s Pucci, Not Poochie

To recreate this look, try sleeping in plaits. If you don’t have 12 hours, plait your hair and then go over the plaits with a straightener. When you take the plaits out you should have gorgeous Cersei Lannister beach waves.

Now for my favourite beauty look from all of MFW, Moschino‘s Barbie Girls!

This look is so pretty and wearable and it reminds me of me circa 2011. I lived for the Barbie lips and was never seen without my Lady Gaga Viva Glam lipstick. That was limited edition, but some great alternatives are Pink Nouveau and Saint Germain from Mac (£15.50)

My guess for Paris is more side partings, doll lashes and maybe some purple eyeshadows. Let’s hope we don’t get any more garage doors though…
