As we are fast approaching winter, new beauty trends are popping up everywhere ready for the party season. From nails, to make-up, to glowing skin, try one of these looks to keep one step ahead of everyone else.
The DIY Trend
Ring Finger Manicure
The new nail craze, as seen on everyone from celebrities and beauty editors. The ring finger manicure is the new way to paint nails, adding a different colour or pattern to the ring finger only, making it stand out from the others. This is a great way to make a statement with your nails, whether just trying something new with an alternate colour, or going all out with patterns and prints. So quick and easy to do, with a really effective finish. Try for yourself and let us know what you think. Or pop in to us and request a ring finger manicure with some of our lovely Jessica shades in stock, and we’ll mix and match some colours to suit you. Manicure from £25, file and paint, £13.
The Quick Fix Trend
Eyebrows are back, and long gone are the days of over-tweezing and pencilling on at a right angle. Big brows were all over the catwalks for autumn/winter, so we say the bigger the better. Why not try the Bare Minerals brow liner, which uses natural mineral shades in a powder-like substance; easy to blend into the natural brow line, giving an instant update to your make-up and shaping the face with more angular lines against the cheekbones. Bare Minerals brow liner £11.
The Low Maintenance Trend
Give us a glow! Glowing, dewy skin is the must-have of the season. Banish pasty skin and give yourself a good scrub; this helps remove dead skin cells and make way for new ones, for a brighter and more radiant look. If you fancy an extra bit of colour, spray tans are perfect to give the post-Ibiza golden glow that we all want to hold onto all year round. And once the tan is on, it lasts up to 10 days with regular moisturising (we recommend Fake Bake Oil Free moisturiser) and slight top-ups of hands and the face, meaning usual make-up regimes take half the time and look even more polished. Treat yourself to one of our spray tans and give yourself sun-kissed skin all winter long! Spray tans from £22.
The ‘All-in-the-Method’ Trend
Eye make-up adds glamour to any outfit, and we particularly love this new technique championed by top make-up artists in the industry. This look takes a bit of practice, but once you’ve got the method you can experiment with all sorts of colours, shades and variations. The technique of cocoon eyes is to use eye shadow on the eye lid, blended up towards the brow bone, around the corner of the eye and lining below the lower lash line; fully enclosing the eye with colour. A thinner line should begin at the inner corner of the eye, gradually building to a bolder and more blended line to the outer corner, making the eyes appear bigger. Bold black eyeliner can also be added around the eye to bring out a contrast between the eye shadow colour and eye liner. If make-up DIY isn’t your thing, why not book in for make-up lesson with one of the Indulgence girls, who can teach you about what suits you best. Make-up lesson £30.
So get to work on your new season look, and let us know what you think!
