So, you’ve bought into all the latest fashion trends but don’t forget the perfect finishing touches to perfect your new style.

Here I’ll highlight the major fashion trends and makeup looks to match.

70’s Love story
Think a fresh new way of power dressing. Key pieces include maxi dresses, blouses and tailored trousers teamed in camel and nude tones with a splash of brown and orange.

The makeup look – For this trend cheeks should be kept flushed with just a hint of blush whilst lips should be stained orange. Eyes can be smokey for the night or kept soft with a palette of brown and orange and a hint of pink.
I recommend: Guerlain’s Ombre Eclat 4 Shades Eyeshadow, Guerlian’s KissKiss stick gloss in Mango, Lancome’s Blush Subtil Classic Blusher in Mocha Havana or Peche Fever.

Field Trip
A cool and edgy style, team dresses and skirts with biker boots and a must-have aviator jacket. The one’s to own are aviators with a shearling collar. Checks and tartan checks are also key.

The makeup look – For this trend multi-tone the eyes with gorgeous browns, nudes and oranges. Highlight cheeks with a subtle peach or soft pink blush and lightly stain lips – again with either a soft pink and peach lipstick or gloss.
I recommend: Benefit’s Big Beautiful Eyes palette, Clinique’s Long Last Glosswear SPF15 in Guavagold, sunset, mystic or bamboo pink, Benefit’s Benetint lip & cheek stain.

Gothic
This is one of my favourite trends. Moody, dramatic and sexy. Opt for dark colours and textured fabrics.

The makeup look – For this make smokey eyes the focus. For the day wear a light grey and for the night go heavier with darker shades. Wear eyeliner but keep lashses bare.  Dark red lips are also a must.
I recommend: Too Faced eyeshadows in Label whore, London’s Calling and Bob’s your uncle, Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Crystal Lipstick in Crystal bronze.

Retro Prim
Think ladylike Parisienne chic with retro styling details. Gloves, berets and pumps are the perfect accessories. Nip in at the waist for that fit-and-flare silhouette.

The makeup look – Make a minimalist statement. Wear little or no makeup. A soft peach sweep to the cheeks and a gloss to the lips is all you need.
I recommend: Lancome’s Teint Miracle Foundation, Clarins Palette Prodige Face and Blush Powder, BareMinerals Natural lip gloss in chiffon.
