BOA STYLE - SPRING 2016 MAKEUP INSPO

21 September 2016

The reign of naked eyes, nude lips and barely-there coverage is officially over; it’s the season for bright lips, glitter and false lashes. Here’s give trends to know…

GO BRONZE

Warmer temperatures mean bronzer becomes part of most people's makeup routines. A sun-kissed glow that twill take you easily from day to night and everything in between. Plus, the neutral shades make it a go-to look for all skin tones.

LASHED OUT

If you love a lash moment – and we do – then you wont be disappointed! Use lengthening mascaras to amplify your lash line or add a pair or two of lashes for thick, beautiful eyelashes.

SUNSET

hues of pink and peaches are usually kept for the lips, but not this season, we are seeing them on the lids, and they look just as soft and pretty.

CANDY APPLE

Red lipstick is a classic staple, of course, but never have makeup artists been so united on the shade as they were this season.

VAMPIRE HOUR

A surprising addition to the spring look this season, dark, moody lips were all the rage and the perfect lip colour to a light, sultry eye.
