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.

Grunge Eyeliner                                                                                                                                                                                            

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.                                                                                                                                                                         

Try: Maybelline Master Kajal Cream Kohl Eyeliner in Pitch Back. RRP $11.95.

Unknown-2Bright, Bold Lips                    

Bigger, brighter and bolder! Let your lips do the talking with the return of high pigment, stand out colours. Opt for hues in pink, red and vibrant plums.

Try: boe professional Colour Pro Matte Perfect Lipstick in “Premier” RRP $8.95.


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.

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.sephora-collection-colorful-eye-shadow-13-curacao-punch-8657Strobing          

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.                                                                                                  

Try: Models Prefer Fame & Fortune Highlighter Quad. RRP $10.99.
