When it comes to makeup looks, bare is always beautiful but so is a bit of colour on the face. This year the Catwalk was full of fresh faced beauties with a pop of colour. At London Fashion week, at Topshop and Alice Temperley we seen the gorgeous model’s set the trend for Spring/Summer make up, Bright and beautiful! I got the low down from Paula Callan of BUFF Make Up at Hessions on how to create the look at home.
A great way to achieve the Mediterranean eye is to use a bright blue eye shadow such as ‘Wild Waves’ from Buff (€15.00) and contrast it with a bright green in the shade ‘Limeonade’. Blend the blue onto the lid and the green under the eye. Finish with lashings of the wonder product Buff Intense Lash Mascara (€23.00) which provides increased volume up to 60% and is also clump free and water resistant. Have the eyes as your feature focus and keep the skin looking sun kissed with Buff bronzer (€30.00) don’t worry if you have pale skin as this bronzer works for all skin tones. Keep the lips nude with Buff lipstick ‘Heaven’ (€18.00) which is enriched with Vitamin E which has soothing and healing properties.
Keep skin fresh with a hint of sheen on cheekbones, Movie star sheer glo (€36.00) an incandescent liquid that lights up the skin with all over radiance and can be mixed with foundation or worn alone it gives a luminous glow and is perfect for this look. To finish the look team it up with one of our favourite lipsticks ‘Shrimp’ on the lips for a perfect 60’s lip! Smooth, contour and brighten your complexion and conceal any blemishes by blending some HD Foundation (€34.00) to create the perfect base using a Liquid concealer (€25.00) underneath the eyes.
For a more Dramatic/Night out look eyeliner is your new best friend! The retro cat eye look was out in full forces at London Fashion week. Paula gave us some top tips in how to create your own eyeliner look:
For the retro cat eyeliner invest in Buff Eye Pencil (€16.00) a really good soft black liner it also has a hypo allergenic formula which treats sensitive eyes with care! Lean the pencil on the lash line a rub it back and forth across the lash line flicking upwards just before the edge of the eye to create the perfect flick. Then use BUFF Cream Gel Eyeliner (€18.00) to seal it in!
So whether you prefer the bright eyed look or you’re more of a retro chic with Cat eyeliner all your make up musts for Spring/Summer are covered thanks to Paula Callan and Buff make up.
