Trend To Try: Winter Make-Up
THIS week, with the help of some of SA’s most loved celebrities, including presenter Ntokozo Molefe, Mrs SA 2017 Hlengiwe Twala, presenter, celebrity blogger and influencer Roxy Burger, food stylist and celebrity chef Nti Ramaboa and journalist and presenter Abigail Visagie, we show you how to wear 5 of the hottest beauty trends. These will be your winter staples.
TAKE a sojourn into a fantasy dream-world with winter’s new full-bodied brushed-up brow. It calls to mind a woodland nymph. Start by stamping on colour and defining the shape, then brush them up. Easy. Winter 2017 Eyebrows on fleek is more natural than ever.

TIP: Match your make-up to your accessories, like Hlengiwe’s lips match her flower crown.
Tour de Face (Skin)
SKINCARE is even more important than make-up. No really. With great skin, comes greater make-up. It’s easy to drop the heavy foundation when skin is blemish-free. Revamp your routine with winter-appropriate products. And don’t skip the sunscreen!

Very Cranberry (Eyes)
BURGUNDY eye shadow won’t look out of place with a moody winter wardrobe. It’s the perfect, yet unexpected way to break out of a winter slump. Start with a primer and pop a shimmer in the corners of the eyes, you can’t go wrong! Keep puffiness at bay with a cooling eye stick.

WINTER’S most annoying sidekick: chapped lips. Avoid flaky, cracked lips by incorporating exfoliation and moisturising of lips into a daily skincare routine. Especially if you want to rock darker or matte lippies.

N Is For Neutrals (Nails)
“IN the same way that a nude pump elongates the legs, a nude fingernail makes the hands look lengthened, feminine and clean,” says Michelle Saunders, Essie’s international celebrity manicurist. We couldn’t have said it better, it’s the ultimate accessory.
