Put your best face forward with a fresh summer look
Wednesday, 8th January, 2014
If you’re wondering how to wear your make-up for 2014 - smoky eyes and pastel lips are out.
The Advanced Make-Up Lounge’s Ashleigh Lehman said there has been a move away from recent make-up trends.
“Previously, pastel lips were really popular but now everyone wears bright lipsticks - like orange and pink,” Ashleigh said.
“There is also a look for more natural eyes, instead of smoky eyes.”
Ashleigh said having smoky eyes was popular for a long time.
“(Moving away from that) is a big change,” she said.
“Previously it was about having stand-out eyes, now it is about having stand-out lips.”
Ashleigh advised that sticking to brown or bronze eye shadow was important for this look.
“These colours go with everything,” she said.
“It’s nice and summery, you can wear any kind of bright lip with it.”
She said it is important to be careful not to clash colours.
“Don’t wear bright pink blush with orange lips, try to keep it brown or bronze - that way you don’t clash,” Ashleigh said.
Red lipstick is still popular, according to Ashleigh.
“It is for a more elegant look, wearing red depends on what the occasion is,” she said.
To keep skin fresh during the hot days, it can be a good idea to add a primer or moisturiser underneath your foundation.
