Having a beauty blast on the blog this week as I’m in need of a refresh (why does everything seem to run out at once!).  I love browsing through all the Fashion Week images, you’ll already be aware of this if you follow me on Pinterest.  But I’m not quite ready/ have the funds for a wardrobe overhaul so let’s play with make up instead.  Heaps of inspiration from the catwalks but I’ve picked out my choice of backstage beauty best bits and Spring Summer 2016 trends below.

Overall the beauty trends are turning away from dewy, high shine styles and becoming more matt in finish next year.  Feline flicks and bubblegum pink lips created by Pat McGarth for Dolce & Gabbana is certainly one look I’ll be trying out.

It’s not just faces that are going matt but lipsticks too.  I love this light application of red lipstick against a nude overall look.

Berry shades aren’t going anywhere but are darker for SS 2016 adding drama again in matt finish.

Gold and copper are the must have eyeshadow colours, heavy on eye lids with a complimenting paler tone lining the under eyes.

Finally a much bolder look to take us back to the Eighties… electric blue liner is making a return.  But note that the Eighties heavy pink blusher and lipstick is not required!
