GRAZIA once again proved why it’s been the stylish destination for Fashion, Beauty, Culture and Entertainment news since 1938. Workshop’s took inspiration from recent fashion weeks and used products from within Grand Central.
MAKE UP TRENDS
Angie explained the importance of prepping with a moisturiser then a primer, waiting for it to set before applying foundation and using concealer as a highlighter. Define eyebrows with brow gel and line lips before applying lipstick, matching the two colours. Lipstick trends are matte in pink, purple and reds with a hint of glitter. Conceal eyes first, using a light eye shadow just below the brow and darker on the eyelid. Highlight inner corners with a lighter gold shade from a palette suited to your skin tone. Line with glitter liquid liner and finish the look with cheek and lip tint.
THE HALF UP LOOK
Using texture powder adding to roots/ends, working through the hair with fingers to add volume. Tong hair into loose curls and section hair starting above the ear making a straight line around and twist into a ponytail. Work the front section forward with fingers and hit with hairspray to finish.
Starting with clean hair add mousse, take big sections using a curling tong in a vertical direction wrapping hair down for beach curls, add texture powder separating with fingers and finish with hairspray. Final look was a side bun, using a tail comb make a defined part, leaving front sections out pull to the side and pin the base of the bun. Then incorporate front pieces and twist sections or plait pining into bun.
Prep lips with a sugar scrub to remove dead skin and to plump the lips naturally, choosing either a defined eye or lip for balance. Match eyebrow colour to your roots and use a hair treatment like coconut on a regular basis. Double pin a hair band and pin under hand held ponytail wrapping around and pining in the same spot, finish by taking a small section of the pony wrapping around to cover hairband. Create a more tousled look alternating the direction of tong. Colour trends are natural shadowing, painted balayage, pastel hair pieces/chalk and grey coloured hair.
