Top 10 Beauty Trends 2014

It won’t be long until the Spring is here and there are some gorgeous new beauty looks we are sure you will be a big part of your life.

The Spring Summer 2014 catwalks were awash with some amazingly stunning hair, make-up and nail looks, from vibrant orange lips to the new  brow. It might be time to re-stock your make-up bags, girls!

1.  Cat-Eyes!

The stunning feline flick is still here and showing no signs of dying down any time soon. A gorgeous look for sultry nights.

Jane Iredale Eye Believe Liquid Liner will amaze you with its saturated color and real staying power – all without those irritating chemicals.

2 . The New Brow

With  Cara leading the way with those brows, the bold brow is showing no signs of disappearing any time soon. However, this season’s brow shape is the new way to go. No longer is the arch in favour, it the stronger straighter effect which is the look to go for. You don’t need to worry about matching your brow pencil to your natural hair colour- now it’s all about a dark or even black shade.

Jane Iredale Bitty Brow Kit®  – A take-anywhere brow kit that includes three brushes, transparent botanical brow wax and pigmented brow powder.

 3. Orange Lips

Orange pouts are everywhere, literally- from Nanette Lepore to Donna Karan to Prabal Gurung, we are in  love with  this bright pop of colour on our lips, perfect for spring-time. To get this look makeup artists mixed dab some lippy on the back of your hand and then blot for a slightly matte finish.

4. Natural Nails

A nude nail might not catch your eye, but we are  such huge fans of super-sophisticated neutral tones. There’s just something about a perfectly groomed, pale nail that is not only super-chic but universally flattering too as these hues really look great on shorter nails too. This  SS14, this look is all about it keeping it simple with a killer top coat, Essie Super Duper Top Coat is fast drying, glossy formula adds strength, and protects nails against chipping.

5.  Electric Blue

Wow! This blue is truly  electric!  Seen at so many of the show by the likes of Marc by Marc Jacobs, this is a serious pop of colour that suits every skin tone.  To get the look  try Jane Iredale PurePressed® Eyeshadow Triple in Azure to create the perfect pop of colour.

6. Glowing Skin

Gorgeous glowing skin is always a good look to go for.  We all struggle to get for perfect skin, but fear not.  The range of skin products by Dr Hauschka will really work wonders for you skin no wonder it is loved by so many celebs.  But hey, if you weren’t blessed with the  genes of a supermodel then you’ll be pleased to hear that a gleaming complexion is pretty easy to fake. Jane Iredale Dream Tint® Tinted Moisturiser 50ml this  super-absorbent tinted moisturizer not only hydrates, but creates a soft-focus effect that minimizes the look of large pores and fine lines.

7.  Straight Hair

Time to dig out your straighteners, girls, as straight hair is back big time! Just remember to use a good heat protection spray to help keep  damage to a minimum.

8. Matt Nails

The matt mani is a little bit more edgy than the glossy nails that we have all come to love.  Try a two textured French manicure- paint half the nail matte to create an awesome 2D effect. Try Essie Top Coat – Matte About You, the only product you’ll need to instantly transform any nail colour from high gloss to matte in seconds!

9. Black Headbands

A little bit of a throw back to the 1980’s but still there’s nothing more us beauty addicts  love than a super-simple yet effective hairstyle, so we can’t wait to try out the black hairband look seen at Victoria Beckham shows. Black jersey headbands are super-chic and easy to make but make yours leather and studded a la Valentino for an ultra party finish.

10. Radiant Orchid

Mauve is definitely having its moment this season. Not only have Pantone just unveiled Radiant Orchid as the official colour for 2014, so many models on  SS14 catwalks  have been sporting a bold mauve eye and a soft wash of lilac really lifted the complexion.
