Bold is the New Black

A strong look across the catwalks saw the eyes take centre stage. Say goodbye to the soft, peachy shades of summer and hello to bold, brights, metallic and glitter (yes, we said it!)  It’s time to make a statement.

No, we’ve not stepped back in time – glitter is well and truly making a comeback! Add a soft layer of glitter shadow on top of your ‘go to’ shade for a subtle nod to the fashionistas, or be bold and sweep generously across your lid to create the ultimate, dazzling statement eye.

Feeling daring? From vibrant oranges to pastel blues, choose two complementary colours, sweep one across the lid of your eye and add the second colour under your lower lash line for eyes that instantly pop. A sure way to easily take your look from day to night!

Finish your look with a good coating of mascara to really lengthen and add volume to your lashes (we love Mii Cosmetics’ Showstopping Lash Lover) and accentuate your eyes.

Finish with a nude lip or add a touch of gloss – the secret is to keep it simple, let the eyes do the talking.

Get Your Glow On

Seen on runway shows such as Stella McCartney and Victoria Beckham, it’s clear to see that dewy, golden skin is going nowhere fast. It’s time to reveal your natural beauty and embrace healthy, glowing skin.

To achieve this simple look, preparation is key:

  • Rejuvenate – To encourage healthy, new skin to grow, you need to first remove flaky, dead skin from the surface. Use a gentle exfoliator like Caudalie’s Deep Cleansing Exfoliator twice a week to leave behind a glowing and flawless complexion.
  • Rehydrate – From the harsh winter weather to drying central heating, the changing season can leave your skin needing a little TLC. Choose a good quality moisturiser to replenish the skin and lock in the moisture. [ comfort zone’s ] Hydramemory Cream immediately quenches the skin, bestowing a pleasant sensation of freshness, and in tests has been shown to increase in hydration by +15,7% after just 24 hours.
  • Radiate – to finish the look, opt for a light foundation, applying a concealer or a heavier foundation if you need a little added coverage. Add a pop of pink blush to the apples of your cheeks or lightly across your cheekbones to warm up your look (needed on these chilly mornings!).

Statement Lip

Bold eye make-up not for you? Make a statement with a bold lip to take you from office to office party this Christmas.

A firm feature on the Autumn/Winter runways saw the return of the classic, statement red lip. From postbox reds to deep burgundies, choose a shade to complement you. A cult favourite is Mii’s Moisturising Lip Lover in Fearless, a bright and bold shade which is lip-smackingly gorgeous. Finish with a high shine gloss or press with powder for the ultimate matt finish – you’re ready to rock that party.
