Winter’s over and we’re welcoming Spring with open arms! We’ve compiled a list of the latest Sydney Spring beauty trends that will freshen up your look for the warmer months.
1. Berry Lips
Berry lips definitely aren’t new, but they are set to be everywhere this summer. This season, the look is lived-in, and worn without lip liner. To apply, pat the colour onto your lips with a finger, then use a small fluffy brush to buff it in. The choice of finish is up to you—we’re seeing everything from tinted balms to velvet matte to super-shiny gloss.
2. Dewy Highlights
A healthy glow can be created very quickly and easily. Begin by moisturising the skin so that you have a glowy base to start with. Pick your choice of highlight whether it’s a powder, cream product or liquid formula. A delicate line of highlighter, on the bridge of your nose or along the cupid’s bow of the lips will gently emphasise the natural contours of your face. Apply the highlighter to anywhere the light hits – such as the inner corners of your eyes, underneath the brow arch, above the cheekbones and on the temples.
3. Flushed Cheeks
Rosy cheeks with pink or red tones is a sign of healthy complexion. Pink, rosy, coral and mauve toned blushes are a hit this year. Blushers in powder form are much better if your skin is oily or breaks out easily. They stay longer and the color payoff is better. Whereas the cream based blushes are more natural looking and are more suitable for dry skin and don’t stick in your fine lines. If your blush brush is big and fluffier, there is a high chance your blush will spread all over the cheeks and will look untidy and messy. Make sure you use the angled brush that is curved from one end. Make sure you whirl your blush brush in the right direction on the apples of your cheeks. For a more blend in the face, take your blush all the way up to your temples and give it a more faded look. Make sure your blush is 3 cm away from your hairline.
4. Skin from Within
A key trend we’ve seen increasingly is the combination of wellness, supplements and skincare. A clear and fresh skin complexion is about what you put on yourself and what you put in yourself, and learning to integrate the two. Drink 2-3 litres of water per day, eat a well rounded and clean diet, take supplements and probiotics as recommended by your local GP or naturopath, and get 30 minutes of exercise a day. This, combined with a good skin care routine as recommended by our skin specialist, will complete the skin from within trend this Spring.
5. Spray tan – Over Sun tan
Naked Tan is the perfect product for those who wish to have that summer glow without exposing themselves to the harmful UV rays of sun. Not only do the UV rays increase your chances of getting skin cancer, they also irreparably damage the collagen in your skin, which is responsible for keeping your skin firm and smooth. Once the collagen is broken down, wrinkles will result. Sunspots are also another nasty side effect of spending too much time sun-baking! Up to 80% of premature skin ageing is caused by the effects of the sun. Naked Tan is the best spray tan option to prevent the risk of damage to your skin so be sun smart and get a healthy Naked Tan.
