6 Runway Beauty Looks You’ll Love

Need a makeup refresh to start the summer? The New York, Milan, Paris and London catwalks were awash with new beauty looks and we show you what’s in for beauty this season.

Freckles

Preen and Vivienne Westwood S/S 2015

Thank your lucky stars because freckles are back this season courtesy of Preen and Vivienne Westwood. A smattering of freckles on fresh pale faces with a nude pink lip is in. Our time has come.

Eyebrows and Lips

Preen and?Andrew GN and Dolce & Gabbana S/S 2015

If the S/S 2015 catwalks proved anything it’s that strong eyebrows and deep lipsticks are still going strong. The golden make-up rule of lips or eyes has now become a trilogy – you can do two of the three (lips, eyes or eyebrows) but never all three.

Slicked Down and Natural

Tommy Hilfiger and Phillip Lim S/S 2015

That poker straight hair look is no more so give your hair a break with a more natural look. Phillip Lim and Viktor & Rolf even went so far to create frizz but natural waves with a slicked down centre parting was everywhere. Very 70s.

The New Cat Eye Flick

Fendi and Giamba S/S 2015

The cat-eye liner got an upgrade this season with block colour, smudging and alternative designs. Try out Fendi’s bright blue or Giamba’s twist on the feline flick.

The Sweptback French Braid

Giorgio Armani and Franchi S/S 2015

Whether its neat little braids or low pony, the french braid is big this summer. This season it’s about keeping your hair off your face so a french braid is the perfect double act – practical and chic.

Smudged Matt Lips

N21 and Marc Valvo S/S 2015

Leave your lip pencils at home ladies. The smudged lip is in and it’s so much easier to do. Just dab colour on the centre of your lips and spread with your finger. Reapply at centre and you’re ready to go.
