SPRING / SUMMER 2018 BOLD BEAUTY TRENDS

A new season is the perfect excuse to update your makeup look and introduce some new possibilities to your makeup bag. Spring and summer is known to be a great time to minimise your makeup to the essentials and embrace your natural beauty and glowing skin. But, this season is all about having fun with colours and bold looks that give you the ‘WOW’ factor. It’s all about trying new products and stepping out of your comfort zone.

Some of the most popular beauty trends making the rounds this season include, bold eyeliner, blue eyeshadow and metallics inspired by non-other than the makeup queen Kim Kardashian. Her makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic is known for his bold and daring looks. Time for you to experiment and try something new. You might find your new favourite look and LOVE IT!

MODERN CLASSICS WITH A BOLD TWIST 

Cat-eye eyeliner. What can be said for this classic beauty look? From Twiggy in the swinging ‘60s to Kate Moss in the ‘90s, no matter how much fashion and other trends change the cat-eye will always remain as a bold fashion statement set to last.

But this season, there are some shake-ups to the simple and neat black cat-eye flick. Add a touch of glitter to your cat-eye to take your look to the next level or take your cue from the catwalk and don a double cat-eye flick.

For a big, bold black cat-eye that is easy to draw on and has clean lines, Perversion Waterproof Fine Point Eye Pen is a winner! Available at Debenhams, Urban Decay counter for £17.

NUDE & NATURAL 

Bold and bright may not be your thing, but don’t worry a trend you can embrace through every season is the natural look. Learn to love your own skin this summer and strip back your makeup to the bare essentials. Embrace your natural beauty like Margot Robbie and draw attention to your eyes with a simple swipe of mascara, natural brow and a nude lip.

The key to this look is to make sure your eyebrows are neatly groomed, and a light application of blusher or highlighter will add a glow to your complexion without appearing too heavy. When it comes to your lips, a nude lipstick with clear gloss is the perfect finishing touch to your natural look.

SCENTS TO HAVE YOU ‘BLOOMING’ THIS SEASON 

Add the final touch to your look this season with a great, nose tingling fragrance. Summer indicates floral, fresh accents and something light. But there are so many undertones and scents available, it can be daunting to decide which one works best for you.

When picking a new fragrance, keep in mind that the same perfume will react with everyone’s skin differently. So, a fragrance that smells great on your friend, might not smell the same when you wear it – I know, frustrating! Don’t worry though there are hundreds of fragrances available, with a host of new scents released in time for the new season, so you’re bound to find the perfect scent for you. The experienced staff in The Perfume Shop can help you find the fragrance perfect for you.
