While pastel colours are not a groundbreaking trend, you can’t deny the uplifting energy you get from using fresh, pretty colours on your skin. If playing it safe is your game, go with just a single pastel tone over your eyelids. Otherwise, feel free to load up on different colours from your eye shadow palettes to stay true to this look.

A high-shine pout is the most accessible runway beauty trend to attempt. Start with a lip scrub to exfoliate away dry flakes. If your lips are not as well endowed, apply some lip plumper before a generous layer of gloss to dial up on the shine.

KNOTTY AND NICE
This hairstyle is the perfect solution to help you save time if you didn’t wash your hair the day before, or if you’re trying to create curls without using heat. Apply smoothing spray or styling mousse to keep stray strands in place. Separate hair into smaller sections and start twisting. Then secure it with bobby pins.

This cat eyeliner look this season is not one for the faint of heart. It emphasises on an extended flick at the end or drawing it all the way up to the crease. Even suitable for those with monolids, adjust the eyeliner to go higher up your eyelid for it to be visible.
You can wear dark lip colours and still look fresh by keeping the rest of the face alone, or with bare minimum makeup. Keep the skin radiant and brush on muted or pastel colours for the eyes. On the lips, vampy lippies can be applied by just dabbing on the colour for a stained look, or using lip crayons to line and fill in the lips precisely.

Love braids? The way to do pigtails this season is to have them tight and glossy. If you want to avoid looking like an over-age schoolgirl, try braiding a high ponytail as seen on the models on the Mark Fast runway. Otherwise, Dutch braids work as well and help secure your hair during an intense workout.
