Here’s how you can look great this season
Hair and makeup expert Puja Taluja gives some tips on the right colours and looks to nail the spring summer season.
Spring summer has brought back many trends that were passé recently. Follow these tips to prepare yourself for the upcoming season.
Make a statement bare faced. Keep it minimal, real and natural. Emphasise your natural beauty. Highlight only one feature of your face and focus on maintaining natural glow. Look fresh and feel elegant in this look.
The perfect pout. The flawless, matte red pout, rich rosy red lips are always in vogue. Don’t put red all over your mouth. Start off darker in the centre and gradually go lighter as you move out to the corners. You can also use candy pink for summers – the sweeter your colour looks, the better it fits the season. Include coral shades in your make up kit as well. Besides the reds and corals to make a statement, even candy or blush pink will be a perfect shade for a spring summer afternoon. In terms of the skin, it’s needless to say that a sun-kissed look or a perfectly bronzed skin is a must for spring summer 2015.
Sparkle those eyes. The colour purple has made a comeback for eye make-up in shades of deep grape, pretty lilac, and icy lavender on the eyelids. Another look you can don this spring is gold sheen. Applying a small amount of gold on your eyelids will definitely make you look like a goddess of spring. Get this look by applying gold shimmer eye shadow on your eyelids. Line your eyes with eyeliner. Curl your lashes and apply a thick coat of mascara. If you want to try something different, add drama by extending cat’s eye to get lion’s eyes. Spring summer is going to be all about making a statement through your eyes, so don’t be afraid to adorn some bright colours for your eye shadows, from orange to aqua to different hues of blues. You need to add some bright colours of eye pencils in your make up kit. Urban Decay has some very nice and extensive variety of eye pencils and colours to choose from, in creamy textures. You can be innovative and also apply bright shades on your lower lash line and add volumes of mascara.
The concept of darker eye brows are out and more natural eye brows would work well this summer spring. Also, the extreme winged look will still be much in vogue. Eye liner is something you can never get enough of, as it’s the classic make up look and is timeless. But even in terms of applying the liner, you can be experimental and apply it in many different shapes to get a new look.
Blush it up. This summer, compliment your make up with loads of blush in pink, fuchsia or beige. Apply a dash of blush to define your cheekbones better. Perfectly bronzed skin is a must for spring summer 2015. Bobby Brown has a fantastic bronzer called Bronze Glow which can give a perfectly bronzed look. Also, try different shades of pinks on your cheeks to give a soft, girly colour to your face.
