Hottest Nail Trends for Fall & Winter: Shades of Blue, Gel-like Nail Polish & Matte Top Coats

For fall & winter, gel-like nail polish is a must-have! Our Beauty Advisor Amanda shows us why the new lines of gel-like polishes from Revlon, Sally Hansen, and L’Oreal are such a hit with beauty buffs: they’re super glossy, long lasting, and don’t require a UV lamp! If you’re picking out a colour for these new polishes, try out a bright or dark shade of blue; this colour is really hot right now, and is more versatile than you may think.

Get the Looks

heading

The hottest look this season is the ‘retro rock’ smoky eye, a throwback to the early days of the British invasion.

  1. Apply ScandalEyes Shadow Stick in Guilty Grey to colour your lid from the lash line to the crease.
  2. Use GlamEyes HD Shadow Palette in Purple Crown for vibrant, intense colour. Apply the lighter and medium purple shades onto the lid then blend the light brown into the crease and slightly under the eye. Intensify the upper lash line and inside bottom lash line with the black shadow.
  3. Use ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Liner in black to pencil along the upper lash line and inside the lower lash line for bold impact.
  4. ScandalEyes Rockin Curves Mascara in Extreme Black finishes the look by pumping up lashes and adding volume.

Union Jack-red takes centre stage in this season’s bold, bombshell lip. Ruby-red lips are a classic but keep the look ultra modern with minimal makeup to draw attention to your perfect pout.

  1. Prep lips by lining with Moisture Renew Transparent Lipliner to prevent bleeding and keep colour in place all day.
  2. Apply Moisture Renew Lipstick in Diva Red to deliver vivid colour and keep lips hydrated and smooth. For a seamless application, smile tightly then blot and reapply to lock in colour.
  3. Once lips are perfect, apply BB Cream Matte in Medium to create a clean, flawless complexion to complement your bold lip.
  4. Complement the look with a beautiful cat eye. Apply ScandalEyes Thick & Thin Liner in Black along the lash line. Start at the inner corner and move outward and upward in your desired thickness.

Accentuate your natural features using a bronze palette, completing the look with a punchy pink nail.

  1. Apply Stay Matte Primer to to your entire face to prep your skin. The lightweight formula minimizes the appearance of pores, evens out skin tone, and creates a perfect matte complexion that lasts all day.
  2. Get a natural sun-kissed look with Natural Bronzer in Sun Glow. Dust your cheeks using a medium-size brush as well as eyelids for a more dramatic and uniform look.
  3. Create a stand-out pout using Lasting Finish Colour Rush Lip Balm to moisturize lips while delivering vibrant colour. Try an orangey-pink shade like Lady Marmalade for kissable lips all night long.
  4. Heat up your bronze look with a playful fuchsia nail like Rita Ora 60 Seconds Nail Polish in Don’t Be Shy.

natural_beautyNatural Beauty
Natural Beauty is timeless and always in style. Use a hint of blush to give this soft and healthy look a pop of colour.

  1. Apply Stay Matte Foundation in Soft Beige for a natural, long-lasting matte finish. Start at the centre of the face and use fingertips to blend outwards for a uniform complexion.
  2. Use Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Sandstorm to minimize the appearance of pores.
  3. Put a dab of Stay Blushed Liquid Cheek Tint in Peach Flush on your finger and apply to the apples of your cheeks using circular motions.
  4. Finish the look with Stay Glossy Lip Gloss in Non-Stop Glamour for wow-worthy colour.

Vancouver Fashion Week Spring / Summer 2015: Beauty Trends

 

London Drugs Cosmetics was on the ground all week at Vancouver Fashion Week this season, covering the shows, interviewing the backstage make-up pros, chatting with designers, all to find out what the hottest beauty trends will be for Spring/Summer 2015.

We met up with Pantene consulting stylist Justin German and VFW Beauty Director Chris Funk to find out what hairstyles they were creating for the runway shows: everything from Brigitte Bardot volume to fishtail braids and the use of mousse for a sleek, polished look. COVERGIRL make-up pro Amélie Ducharme then gave us an insider tip on the foundation she used on the runway models all week: TruBlend foundation from COVERGIRL, which is key to perfecting the spring trend focusing on healthy, glowing skin.

Want to try one of the looks you saw on the runway at Vancouver Fashion Week? We have all the Pantene, Covergirl, and Olay products you’ll need to re-create the look at London Drugs!
