With Valentine's Day right around the corner we think it best to offer a few notes of guidance on flattering trend-worthy hair and makeup combinations that will have you feeling confident as ever. Whether you're prefer sleek and modern or a ravishing retro siren, these options are totally replicable.
Red Rush Like Laura Harrier
The middle path is probably one of the hardest styles pull off but instead of the traditional Bambi-esque look, opt for a middle-path ponytail. Its super sleek and allows for greater facial feature exposure. Try different heights but in light of the trend we spotted at NYFW, we have to say that high ponytails are out- and low ponytails are in.
In terms of makeup, the iconic color of love is the typical addition. A non-competing bold red matte lip stands out on a fresh faced canvas, larger-than life lashes and full eyebrows.
A Subtle Mess Like Shay Mitchell
Messy hair is here to stay and what better way style the look than by teasing the roots and tucking the hair into your collar. Play on the proportions of your clothes by pairing a tailored blazer-straight and formal- with your finger-brushed locks.
For makeup, why not try a subtle smokey eye taking hints of nude, brown and grey and carefully layering the hues and finishing it off with mascara. Keep your lips trailing along the same color scheme with a glossy nude effect. Super easy glam for a day look.
Cut So Deep Like Lily Collins
You'll look like you just walked out of a vintage film with this daring combination categoric of an old Hollywood movie star. Try a trendy cut crease in shades of plum and Burgundy carefully outlining the lid and leaving the middle section of the lid bare. With such a dramatic eye, keep the rest of your face neutral perhaps with a strong cheek rouge and a nude lip.
Going for the top heavy look and adding a little bounce to your step, add some volume with retro waves inspired by all of your favorite actresses from the 50s.Opt for a deep side path and the soft sweep behind the ear to show off those incredible accessories you're rocking.
Go For The Glow Like Winnie Harlow
Winnie Harlow can do no wrong in this evening look- try a heavy bronze lid with an under eye buff of the same colour for more drama. Matching your lid to your lip is a trend and we love the glossy peach tones that mimic the bronze eye. The key here is to prominently line your lips, followed by the application of a gloss.
A tighter curl works with this looks but again, opt for the clean sweep behind the ear to balance out the the volume and proportions of your hair against your face.
It's All In The Eyes Like Rita Ora
Much like the previous look featuring Lily Collins, we take a trip down memory lane and we're playing with eyeliner. It can pretty much lead to the most iconic makeup looks ever, cue in Rita Ora. With super dramatic winged eyeliner and a semi-think line in the crease, Ora's look pays tribute to 60s glamour girl- Edie Sedgewick. Geometric, ruled and ready- We love it!
Add some soft waves to balance out the drama.
Caught In The Rain Like Zendaya
We understand that Zendaya is flawless and we think that this look may just be the one that she became known for. Hair pulled back in what we call that 'caught in the rain' look.
She pulls off the perfect smokey eye with a sun kissed glow, perhaps a great option for a Valentine's brunch? or Maybe an evening look that embodies effortless beauty. Remember that the earnings make this look interesting so be sure to select your biggest and boldest pair for a stat.
