Get the Beauty look: Prints Charming

Hair – Royal wave

Start by putting your hair into a centre parting. Spritz with a heat protector spray then take medium sections, wrapping each one around the Babyliss Boutique Soft Waves and leave to cool as you continue around the head. Vary the direction of the curl for a more random, cooler wave. Next using your fingers separate the curls and sweep your hair into a low ponytail. Take it to the side for a girly look and tease out some flyways for a whimsical feel.



Eyes – Cool colour

Blues and greens are key colours for AW12 and look great on all eye colours. Try sweeping NYX Eyeshadow Duo – morocco + navy blue over the lids, up to the socket and slightly outwards for a graphic shape to tie in perfectly with the print trend. Next apply Barry M kohl pencil in white to the waterline of the eyes. Now contrast your colourful eyes with really dense black lashes YSL Volume effect false lash shocking mascara in deep black will make your eyes ‘pop’.

Skin – Peachy keen

Keep skin looking peachy perfect with NYX studio photogenic primer applied lightly with your fingertips before Daniel Sandler invisible radiance foundation. Blend Barry M correction pen under the eyes and onto the tops of the cheekbones for a beautiful highlighted look. Use another cream product, Daniel Sandler watercolour blush in icing on the apples of the cheeks to add extra dewiness and a gorgeous flush.


Nails – Your High-shineness

Have some fun with your nails and go for gold. Metallic nails are big news and you can make 3D nails at home really easily. Start by filing your nails and pushing back the cuticles, next add a coat of OPI Swiss Collection in Glizterland, whilst this is still wet take Barry M fine glitter dust in Silver and sprinkle over the top. Clean up any mess with a cotton bud dipped in OPI expert touch polish remover. Finish with Barry M nail paint 54 clear top coat, and voila! Your own two-toned metallic treats.

Lips – Stain power

Lips need to be a bit more natural to balance out the colourful eyes. Create a stain by applying Daniel Sandler lip shine in Hush all over the lips and then pat Barry M lipgloss wand in strawberry into the centre of the mouth to create a plumped effect.
