For this beauty post, I was approached by Farfetch to showcase what's hot from the latest Spring/Summer 16 beauty trends. My personal favourites are 'Gym Skin', 'Au Naturale' and 'Loud Lips'.
I think 'Gym Skin' is a great make up look for Spring/Summer, however, it is also very easy to cross the line and look borderline shiny/sweaty/'I need to powder my face'. Fortunately, Sunday Riley offer a range of facial gels which will help achieve this look down to a tee! I also love the slicked back, wet hair look. I've recently had my hair chopped short and think this is such an easy look to achieve. It's especially good for when the weather's a little on the humid side or when on holiday and you prefer to have your hair off your face. I have previously blogged about Percy and Reed hair products before. They are very good and smell incredible. Their range of hair oils are perfect to help nourish the hair, with an added hair gel to brush it back and set it in place.
Now I'm all for an 'Au Naturale' look. As I have recently returned from Cuba, I am still sporting my Cubana tan (yippee!). I think a natural make up look is great for everyday, including going to work. It's important to use an SPF based product, whether that be a tinted or general moisturiser. Add a little highlighting concealer and blush and you're good to go!
If you want to take this make up look one step further, I absolutely love 'Loud Lips'. When on holiday, a pair of sunglasses and a bright, good quality lipstick are a must for my everyday look. Add a hue of pink or red to the au naturale look and it will instantly brighten your face and complexion.
I think Spring/Summer 16 beauty trends are all about experimenting and having fun - whether that be bright lips or slicked back hair - try it and see how you get on! These little trends could be the difference between transforming an outfit or even simply making yourself feel better.
