EYEWITCHING!

Cast a spell with per­fectly set feath­ery eye­brows. The se­cret to nail­ing the look? It’s hid­ing in your bath­room - we’re talk­ing about trusty old soap.

Get the look: Roll your spoolie brush over a bar of lightly moist­ened soap and gen­tly brush it over your eye­brows to full, feath­ery ef­fect that sets just right.

ROCKIN’ DO

In­spired by iri­des­cent crys­tals, geode hair is mak­ing waves across the globe. From hues of amethyst, blue and green, this fade-in colour trend is vi­brant, dreamy, glam­orous and a sure shot stun­ner.

Get the look: Start by light­en­ing the hair from the bot­tom up with­out bleach­ing the roots (op­tional). Ap­ply the darker shade along the top and mid­sec­tions of the hair and the lighter shade along the bot­tom once the darker shade dries. You can ap­ply the colours at vary­ing lev­els to cre­ate a daz­zling ef­fect. En­sure that one colour fades into the next with­out any gaps.

Note: It is best to con­sult with your hair­styl­ist and not at­tempt to cre­ate it on your own if you’re not con­fi­dent about hair colour­ing.

ARMED & READY!

Beauty masks are a big hit this year - and not just the ones for your face. Pit­mask­ing is gar­ner­ing a lot of at­ten­tion at the mo­ment. Es­sen­tially, it is a fa­cial for your armpits. It helps re­duce sweat­ing and con­trols body odour.

Lemon juice or ap­ple cider masks are the sim­plest nat­u­ral masks; just ap­ply for five min­utes and rinse. You can also try char­coal and clay, or choose from a plethora of read­ily avail­able masks that best suit your skin type.

FRIZZ FREE

Anti-frizz sheets are the an­swer to frizzy, caught-in-the-rain hair - no ap­pli­ances or serums are nec­es­sary. They are su­per sim­ple to use and can eas­ily be tucked away in your bag. The sheets are lined with nour­ish­ing oils like ar­gan or co­conut and mois­tur­iz­ers like shea but­ter; and pro­duce stun­ning re­sults for ev­ery hair type. Sim­ply glide the sheet over frizzy hair and watch as it smoothens out, adding a lit­tle ex­tra shine along the way. Ramp ready hair is now just a swipe away!

GO AC­TIVE

Think makeup and work­outs don’t go to­gether? Think again! Ac­tive beauty prod­ucts are stir­ring things up in the realm of skin­care and makeup. Some of the big­gest brands in the busi­ness have cre­ated prod­ucts for women who like to stay fit and look good do­ing it. These prod­ucts tar­get ex­er­cise spe­cific con­cerns from clogged pores to red­ness, and also aim to heal and re­pair the skin. From sweat re­sis­tant to wa­ter­proof makeup and skin­care picks, they are a must have ad­di­tion to your beauty regime. So get out there and chal­lenge yourself with your best face for­ward.

ROY­ALLY CHIC

In­spired by the el­e­gant Queen of the Nile, Cleopa­tra eye­liner is steal­ing the scene on run­ways across the globe. Su­per graphic and su­per dra­matic, the look can be in­ter­preted in dif­fer­ent ways but never fails to grab eyes - much like the queen her­self.

Get the look: Start by prim­ing your eyes. Use a black eye­liner to trace the eyes with a heav­ier coat along the lower lid. Cre­ate sharp points along the in­ner cor­ners and ex­tend the wings to ra­zor sharp points. Add a swipe of mas­cara and you’re ready to rule!

VI­VA­CIOUS POUT

Bold is beau­ti­ful when it comes to this makeup trend. Vivid hues of pink, orange and red are out­shin­ing nudes this sea­son. A pop of colour on your lips paired with oth­er­wise neu­tral makeup is the rule you need to fol­low to step out and stun.

Get the look: Ap­ply a lip primer or lip balm. Choose a vivid shade of matte lip­stick that pairs with your skin tone and ap­ply an even layer. Add a sub­tle blush and eyeshadow or go with­out - ei­ther way your lus­cious pout is ready to shine.

BLOCKED!

Colour block­ing makes a seam­less tran­si­tion from fash­ion to makeup to give your eyes that ex­tra edge. A play on the two-tone makeup trend that has been do­ing the rounds, it’s a sure shot way to make your eyes pop!

Get the look: Start by prim­ing your eyes. Use a black or metal­lic eye­liner to trace your eyes. Choose two shades of eyeshadow that com­ple­ment each other. Ap­ply the brighter shade along the up­per lid, end­ing just be­low the eye­brows. Gen­tly ap­ply a swipe of the sec­ond shade along the lower lid. Fin­ish with two coats of mas­cara and you’re ready to rock!
