This month, it’s all about embracing the pale skin, using dark, almost gothic nail colours and adding a few extra steps to your skin, face and hair-care routine.
The past few years, we’ve seen a movement toward organic, natural skin-care and make-up and Nourished Life’s 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Lip & Cheek Tint promises to deliver a youthful, rosy glow without clogging your pores. Nothing complements a winter complexion more than a ‘just been kissed’ flush on the apples of the cheeks and stains are a fool-proof option – they’re easy to blend and long-lasting.
This has been a huge trend throughout the summer, but it’s time to put those nude coloured lippies to the back of the beauty cabinet. Pale lipsticks will just emphasise your pasty skin and make it look more washed-out than porcelain.
Ladies, put away the hairspray and pick up the teasing comb, because this month, messy is in. The messy plait is all about creating body and grip at the roots, TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe CASUAL Sculpting Powder is a gem for this, and then loosely plaiting the hair. Once you’ve secured with a hair-tie, go back through the plait and randomly pull at sections. This will add extra thickness to the knot, but also that messy ‘I just woke up like this’ look.
The sexy high-shine pony tail should be left for the warmer months when going straight from the pool or ocean to the cocktail bar would actually be viable.
