The age of no-makeup makeup is over. This season we’ll be reaching for our makeup bags, as colour is most definitely back in fashion. From blue eyed hues to slicked back twists, we’ve picked our favourite SS16 trends that we’re sure will be gracing your dressing table this season.

Sleek and Simple
Romantic and lady-like, this look can easily be recreated at home. Sleek middle partings, twisted hair knots and glowing, strobed skin. The contrast of dewy skin with a matte lip can be worn during the day, or vamped up with a candy apple red lip at night. Investment in your skincare is crucial for this look, dry sky and sheer bases do not mix!
This season lashes go XXL with falsies, individual lashes and several coatings of mascara hitting the catwalk. Not for the faint hearted we do admit, but the doll-like girly flutter will have us reaching for that extra coat of mascara come springtime.
If you’re more a lipbalm and mascara kind of women then ‘Gym Skin’ is the trend for you. Stripped back, this new take on the ‘no makeup’ look is perfect for those who like a five minute morning makeup routine. Pack away your blotting powder as this look is based on glowy, dewy skin. Aim for the natural flush after a gruelling spin class! Ideal for spring, the only issue is running the risk of crossing from glowy to sweaty…
