Quick ‘n’ trendy beauty fads

SNOGGED LIPS

Blurred, messy lips are the hottest trend on the global run­way. They are a def­i­nite stand out and add an edgy touch to any look.

Get the look: Ap­ply an even layer of liq­uid lip colour in a hue of your choice – the bolder, the bet­ter. Use a large makeup brush to buff it out­side the lip line for that just-kissed ef­fect. Add a lit­tle sheen by swip­ing some clear lip­gloss over your lips.

TWO-TONED

Two-toned eyes are a big fav with celebri­ties and makeup artistes. It’s a fun, flirty and fresh way to up your look.

Get the look: Prep your eyes with a primer. Cre­ate a winged line on your up­per lid with black eye­shadow. Line the lower lash as well. Use a blend­ing brush to buff out the cat eye. Use a ta­pered crease brush to ap­ply a brighter hue along the crease, over­lap­ping with the smoky lid. Use a fluffy brush to blend out the colour. Ap­ply the same shade to the lower lash line so that it over­laps with the black eye­shadow and blend the two.

TOP­NOTCH! El­e­gant, classy and so­phis­ti­cated, the braided top knot gives a clas­sic look a funky edge.

Get the look: Take a sec­tion of hair from the front and clip it out of the way. Flip your head up­side down and brush your hair down from the nape. Use a styling prod­uct that adds tex­ture and grip if re­quired. French braid the back sec­tion work­ing from the nape to the crown. When you reach the crown, con­tinue braid­ing for an inch or two. Un­clip the front sec­tion and tie it with the braid into a high pony­tail. Re­move the elas­tic hold­ing the braid. For vol­ume, spritz it with hair­spray (op­tional). Fi­nally, smooth the outer layer of the pony­tail and wrap into a bun. Use bobby pins to se­cure it in place. Ta-da!

BEAUTY SNOOZE

Sleep – the best way to re­lax, re­ju­ve­nate and un­leash your nat­u­ral beauty. The Om Supti Night Spa in the Mal­dives of­fers some old-fash­ioned REM ther­apy. Hid­den away in a pri­vate jun­gle clear­ing, guests can en­joy a mas­sage, fa­cial, an al fresco soak in a bath­tub of Hi­malayan salt crys­tals, san­dal­wood, jas­mine and rose – all at night. All this be­fore re­tir­ing to a swing bed for a night of bliss­ful sleep. This ri­tual is de­signed to lull guests into a deep med­i­ta­tive state that ban­ishes stress and pro­motes cell re­gen­er­a­tion.
