The 9 Big Makeup Trends for 2014
1. Purple Makeup
The look: Orchid, lilac and lavender shades are invading your makeup bags. The coolest way to tackle the trend is with eyeshadow, but wearing purple washes on your lips and tips is another option.
The products: Maybelline Color Tattoo in Endless Purple, Lola Eye Shadow in Lavender, Sensational Lipstick in Midnight Plum, Revlon Nail Enamel in Charming
2. Bright Orange Nails
The look: From neon to coral, orange tones make loud mouths cool this season. The easiest way to wear bright lip colour is with a chunky glide-on pencil.
The products: Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm in Mischievous, NARS Heat Wave Lipstick
3. Graphic Eyeliner
The look: This season liner has gone graphic with straight flicks and angular shapes. This makes the retro obsession instantly more modern, but still super-sexy.
The products: L’Oreal Paris Gel Matic Super Liner in Black, Estee Lauder Pure Color Intense Kajal Eyeliner in Blackened Black, Clinique Brush-On Cream Liner in True Black
4. Golden Glows
The look: Gorgeous, day-glow golden is the way to look tanned this year.
The products: Michael Kors Beauty Bronze Powder, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark, Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush in Pinched
5. Aquatic Eyes
The look: Blue eyes are as bold as you like this season. It’s a continuation from 2013 when the trend returned, but this season there’s something for everyone from subtle liner to blocks of shadow.
The products: Kiko Eyeshadow in Cerulean and Dark Sea Green, Givenchy Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow in Blue Soire, Maybelline Master Kajal Kohl Line in Lapis Blue
6. False Lashes Top AND Bottom
The look: Think doe-eyed 60s makeup with feathery lashes against the top and bottom eyelids. It’s super sex-kitten, like a modern Jane Birkin. Who wouldn’t want that?
The product: MAC 33 Lashes
7. Schoolboy Brows
The look: The catwalks confirm that the arch is not returning. Instead blunt, boyish brows rule this season (once again).
The products: bareMinerals Frame and Define Brow Styler, Benefit Gimme Brow
8. Barefaced Beauty
The look: Ironically the biggest makeup trend for Spring/Summer 2014 is for little or no makeup. Even Victoria Beckham was behind this one. As we don’t all have flawless complexions like Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Jourdan Dunn (pictured), this look is about well-conditioned skin.
The products: No7 Instant Illusions, Rapid Radiance Balm, MAC Fast Response Eye Cream, MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer, MAC Lip Conditioner, NARS Oural Brow Gel
9. White Liner
The look: Another one of our favourite 90s trends has returned: white liner on the top and bottom eyelids. It looks fresh and fun, especially paired with a hot pink or orange lipstick.
The products: Gosh Kohl Eyeliner in White, NYX Eye Shadow Base in White
