Sweet for My Sweets
The New Face is upon us this season, with beauty taking a turn to 'au naturale'. Make-up artists kept the models looking peachy and chic on the catwalks for a minimal effect and brought a whole new approach to beauty.
Just in, is Lipsy's fab glitzy Beauty collection to help you stunningly nail the trends. Make like the fash pack and invest in sets to get the most out of your look and use our Daytime Doll Set to achieve a/w11 cool eye effect and natural lips; and for nail sophistication bag our Polished to Perfection Nail Set for the ultimate in colour blocking beauty.
For those a little shy of eyebrow grooming, you'll be pleased to hear it's more about the boy/girl look this season as the return to full handsome brows is the new big craze. "Keep brows square on top and straight across with only a slight natural arch to keep them looking as boyish as possible" said Make-up Artist Lucia Pieroni at the Acne a/w 11show. So, let it all grow out girls, and groom your bush with a brush to add structure and strong definition.
As for cheeks, wear your blush in a whole new fashion this season. Apply low daubs of colour and then highlight the apples of your cheeks with creamy flushes for the chiselled look to polish your skin. "Use a cream blush and blend into skin with your finger tips until you have a soft, from-within glow" shared Pat McGrath at the Versace show. A/W 11-12 is all about the fresh face for a sweet cheeks style and with celeb's like Alexa Chung already wearing the beauty trends, the key looks for the season are looking bright.
And while we're on the subject of sweet, congratulations to lovely Pixie Lott on reaching number 1 with her hot new track "All About Tonight"! The single is now in stores and available for download. Pixie has been the talk of the town with her sexy new cropped hairstyle and gorgeous sixties look out and about in town. So, if you haven't heard the super cool song yet, then where have you been?
