From over highlighted skin to colour popping – it’s all here for 2018.  Here are some trends that you may want to re-create yourself – and it’s not subtle. With Pantone creating the colour or the year 2018 as Ultra Violet it’s no surprise that this year is all about bold statements – and why not… go on…. express yourself.

Ultra Violet: This is the year of Ultra Violet…. use this colour anyway you want whether through your clothes or a hint of purple liner (my fave)! Or you could go as bold as RiRi…
