Top 5 Beauty Trends For 2016
Whether you consider yourself a classicist and love French nails and nude tones or a rebel and dare to go bold with red lips, Chia Kougianos breaks down the latest beauty trends you need to try now…
This week we reveal some of the hottest looks fresh off the runway from messy buns and ponytails to velvet lips and bold lashes. There’s a lot to be excited about for Summer 2016 and the good news is that these beauty trends are easy to pull off. Check out some of the season’s Top 5 Beauty Trends for 2016 below:
Velvet Lips: Sure bold lipstick is nothing new but what if we told you making your lips almost velvet in texture was a hot must this season? We all love a great matte look and now you can spice it up and take things up a notch. Maybelline make-up artist Yadim even dared to add a tiny bit of blush onto the lip as the finishing touch to really take the matte finish to the next level.
Textured Buns and Ponytails: The imperfect bun is back with a vengeance and is an ideal look for Spring/Summer 2016. The hot look was seen across all the runways at this year’s Fashion Week shows and imperfect lines and texture is all the rage.
Bold Braids: If braids are your go-to-hairstyle then you’re in luck as the braid trend is back this summer and could just be your beauty staple. This season, it was all about the face-framing braids and was popular at Coachella as well as local festivals like Rocking the Daisies. For a much softer look, simply let a few pieces fall out and loosen the braid slightly before securing into place.
Lash Love: Who doesn’t love big, bold lashes? High definition is the name of the game as this beauty trend is one to embrace this season. When it comes to the rest of your make-up keep your foundation light and your lips in a nude colour to really highlight the lash trend.
Go for Gold: The last beauty trend for 2016 to make it onto our Top 5 list is all about highlights. Strategic highlights and contours to be specific. Embrace a golden summer-kissed look this season with luminous skin and a sheer powder. Complete the look with a nude lip gloss and you’re all set to go.
