Hello 80's...

It’s that time of year again where I get ridiculously excited about the makeup trends moving forward.  Are we stepping back in time or are we  playing safe? Will my fave era be back? I think so….. there were hints that the 80s are just around the corner at New York Fashion Week so far.  From big hoops and headbands at Tom Ford to wacky eye makeup at Adam Selman – this was an era to express yourself and that’s why I love it! Care-free and gorgeous! And can we just appreciate the size of these hoops – but ouch on the ear-lobes!

I can’t get over these eyes!! And not forgetting those cheekbones – OMG!

Most recently we have seen a strong emphasis on skin and the ‘no makeup’ makeup look.  This season is all about EYES EYES EYES – and it’s not subtle.  It’s bold, colourful and ridiculously mesmerising!  Oh and did I mention there is still glitter (thank goodness)!

For hair we saw beach waves – undone hair and that gorgeous effortless, ‘rolled out of bed the morning after’ look.  There was also slick back looks, buns and hair accessories. But I like this looks because being a Mummy hair is something I never have time for….

p.s Bananna hair clips are back!!!! As we saw at the Alexander Wang shows – yes our fave 90s clip (that always snaps) is back! Can I confess that I never got rid of it???
