Hy­brid will be on ev­ery­one’s lips as May­bel­line and MAC gave teasers of their new prod­ucts on the run­ways of New York Fash­ion Week AW15. May­bel­line Vivid Matte Liq­uid Lip­stick and MAC’s new liq­uid lip colours go on like gloss and set to cre­ate a matte ef­fect. Ready, set, strobe with MAC’s new strob­ing cream shades. The high­light­ing make-up trick that takes con­tour­ing to the next level be­comes even more ac­ces­si­ble with a new range of colours – from red (for darker skin) to sil­ver and gold tints that bring out the bright­ness in any skin tone. Also keep an eye out for MAC’s new foiled eye­shadow, in stores in Fe­bru­ary. We’ll still be book­ing fancy fa­cials. You’ve heard of the vam­pire facelift (R6 000, Lightsculpt.co.za) made fa­mous by Kim Kar­dashian West – where platelet-rich plasma from a sam­ple of your own blood is in­jected into the face to im­prove col­la­gen pro­duc­tion – and now fa­cials are get­ting even quirkier. The lux­ury 24-karat gold fa­cial at De­laire Graff Spa (R3 000, De­laire.co.za) prom­ises to leave your skin nour­ished and glow­ing, or try oxy­gen ther­apy at Afri­col­ogy Spas (R900, Afri­col­o­gyspa.com) for a blast of pure oxy­gen on the skin. Say good­bye to those un­used eye­shadow pal­ettes. With the L’Oréal Makeup Ge­nius app (free on iOs), you can up­load a sel e and play with dif­fer­ent looks – al­low­ing you to get ad­ven­tur­ous be­fore com­mit­ting to an over­haul of your make-up bag.

‘Deeper, earthy eye tones surged in 2015, but the fu­ture will bring more sub­tlety to eye­shadow, par­tic­u­larly in pas­tel to mid-tones,’ says Leatrice Eise­man from the Pan­tone Color In­sti­tute.
