Summer Make-Up 2014
The sun is shining and the heat is rising, which can only mean one thing: it's time to update your make-up bag and start channelling the best of spring/summer 14's beauty trends.
You'll be glad to know this year's biggest trends fit in perfectly with the need for lighter, fresher make-up when the humidity kicks in. Better yet, they are all seriously easy to recreate at home.
Jane Richardson, the International Lead Stylist at NARS summed up this years biggest beauty trends from the catwalk as 'barely there make-up, soft defined eyes, defined brows and hot orange lips,' all of which we have definitely seen recreated on our favourite celebs.
Judging by the red carpet, this year there are two opposite ends of the spectrum to choose from, with barely there, beautifully brozed on one end, and bright oranges, vibrant blues and sophisticated pinks on the other. Plently for you to play with.
But If you only take away one key beauty trend this summer, Jane insists it be this: 'My biggest tip this season is to invest in a brow pencil and gel. Whatever look inspires you, softly fill for a subtle strength, or add a coloured gel on top for a bolder statement and added texture.' Duly noted!
So flick through and take inspiration from these celebrity looks, and tweet us your favourite look at @marieclaireuk. Happy clicking!
