09 May INCANDESCENT- Beauty Story

Hard textures and soft metallics come together to set the mood for the seasons most on trend beauty looks.

Burnished coppers, shimmering charcoals and incandescent skin combined with an edge of heavy textured hair.

This season textured hair is a must, whether it be wet shiny locks, heavily crimped or braided sections or glossy strands around the face.

Be bold and experiment with texture, not only is it fun but this level of statement hair can still look soft and feminine.

While bright colours might not be your thing, you can still achieve a high impact look by giving the skin a surreal radiance. Try combining a cream highlight, with a few dabs of high shine gloss across the cheeks and eyelids.

Yes the ‘wet look’ is still a big trend. Wet hairstyles require minimal effort, and combined with the right styling product can stay wet looking, and perfect day long.

Try using your favourite burnished orange or red blush as an eyeshadow, top it off with a little gloss to add an extra ‘wow’ factor.

You can also add gloss to amp up the look of your favourite smoky eye.

Emphasise the cheek and brow bone with an intense illuminate powder. Do this as the final step of your make-up routine to create incandescent looking skin.

Emphasising hair texture around the face will add an edge to your overall look. Try simple pieces of crimping, or use gel to place fly away sections on and around the face.
