Goodbye 2015, you were pretty amazing but let’s welcome a brand new year with brand new beauty trends, and some that have made a very welcome comeback.
Eyeliner is back on the menu for 2016 and it makes it’s way back with a vengeance. Heavily lined lids smoulder and to get the perfect “grungey” line try using a thick black kohl pencil teamed with a soft underline along the lower lashes using a powder or black eyeliner pencil.

All Natural Brows
The stronger the brow the better, well not this year. All natural brows are on the mist-have list and the “feathered” look will be on everyones wish list. Simply invest in a high quality tinted brow mascara to perfectly tame those brows and add a touch of colour.
Try: Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow. RRP $37.00.
Golden highlights and bronzed shimmers dominate the catwalk of SS16 and with good reason. Accentuate your greatest assets and add a touch of glow to your day or night.
Try: Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze. RRP $72.00.
All things bright and beautiful are adorned on the eyes. Making an extremely welcome comeback this year is bold, blue eyeshadow. Why not be a little daring and also try shades of pinks, purples and greens.
Try: Sephora Collection Colorful Eye Shadow in Curacao Punch. RRP $18.00.Strobing
Just as we mastered the art of contouring in comes a new innovation known as “strobing”. Strobing was first introduced to us late last year and is the new “contour” for 2016. Blend a highlighter along the tops of the cheekbones, the centre of the nose, above the Cupid’s bow and along the brow bones. Find out how to perfect this trend here.
