Christmas is over, and the New Year has begun. Time to look ahead and update the makeup bag.

These are the key beauty trends for 2015.

Dewy Skin

It is all about the glow. Choose sheer, light reflecting foundations such as Smashbox Liquid Halo.

Also, go for liquid blusher, Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blusher’s beautiful long lasting shades that give a ‘just finished yoga’ flush.

The Lob

The ‘long bob’ has been worn by many celebs, and is a top requested style. It can be blown out for mega volume or wanded in boho waves.

Painted on highlights are on trend for colour for 2015, so kiss the ombre dye good bye.

Nude Face

A consistant trend from A/W 2014, the no makeup-makeup look continues. Pale eyes, softly groomed brows, and barely there lip stains.

Less is more, but be sure to correct and conceal any imperfections. Estee Lauder Double Wear concealer hides blemishes and circles without looking cakey.

Geometric Manis

Bold patterns, metallic accents, and negative space are on the tip of every stylish finger.

Opt for gel polish manicures to keep your bold statement nails looking absolutely perfect.

Bold Graphic Liner

Cat eyes taken to the extreme. Bold, angular, and very black. Pointed cotton buds are very necessary for perfect edges.

Apply Illamasqua Precision Gel Liner with a superfine liner brush for the blackest, smudge free black.


Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2015 is a rich shade of plummy red. Ideal for lips, play around with the tone on eyes as well.

Try MAC Eyeshadow in Blackberry and Laura Mercier Eyeshadow in Merlot .

Gilded Hair Accessories

Circular barrettes in matte gold add goddess chic to sleek tresses in 2015.

Hair pins with sea shell motifs bring glamour to messy bed head updos. The perfect way to jazz up your
everyday hairstyle.
