Beauty trends to look out for in 2016


We’re kicking off this beautiful year with some beauty trend predictions to look out for. We’re taking runway style and inspiring and challenging you to incorporate these trends into your own everyday style.

Tweak your style a little and try something new this year. Maybe a new hair style and cut? Or maybe treat yourself to some bold and bright lipsticks?

Here are the beauty trends to look out for in 2016.

Feeling blue
It’s all about applying some blue around your eyes, whether that be an eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, or maybe even a hint of glitter? Make your eyes pop!

Line it up
Winged eyeliner is so 2015. This year, experiment with unique ways that you can line your eyes. Go a little cray with the liner.

Dewy glow
Makeup artists have revealed that the dewy look is in. They want you to achieve the look that appears as if the person has been out all night dancing!

Off duty hair
Slick hair is out and day old effortlessly casual up-do’s are in. Don’t worry about the wind ruining your hair anymore, because that’s sorta the look we’re going for here!

Lip smack
A classic trend that will always be in style. Vibrant lip colors are in, so there’s an excuse to spend some dosh on more lipsticks!

Is beauty your thing? We’ve got what you need.

We know that you’re in love with fashion. We also know that you love beauty just as much, which is why we think that it’s important that you discover these 4 brands. So put on your girly cap and get ready to spend a bit too much on beauty and skincare products that are just too fab to not own.

1. Essence
Awesome quality, huge range, super affordable and frequent releases of new collections. What’s not to love? Essence was created in Germany and is now available in over 50 countries. Visit the Essence website here.

2. Nip + Fab
With the one and only Kylie Jenner being the face of Nip + Fab, you automatically feel obliged to try this skincare brand. A bit on the pricey side, the products are very unique and smell amazing! Visit the Nip + Fab website here.

3. Anatomicals
One of the most quirky and witty skincare brands that you’ll ever know. You just can’t resist hand wash with a name like ‘Silly Twits Ignore Their Mitts’ and a body cleanser called ‘Shower To The People’. Visit the Anatomicals website here.

The 3 Ingredient Lip Scrub DIY

Are your lips ready to be kissed? Probably. But, you can never be too ready.

Pucker up with this lip scrub that only has THREE ingredients that you already have sitting in your kitchen. That’s not the best thing about this hella easy Lip Scrub DIY – it’s edible. Yep! It’s good enough to eat right off those luscious lips.


What you’ll need:

– 1 part Raw Sugar
– 1 part Honey
– 1 part Coconut Oil
– A small bowl
– A teaspoon for mixing
– A small container to put your goodness in


Depending on how much you want to make, put all 3 ingredients of even parts into your small bowl.


Mash and mix the concoction together with your teaspoon until it looks like a paste. I know, it’s not the most pretty thing you’ll ever make!


Transfer the mixture into your small container where you’ll store your lip scrub.


There you have it! Now rub the scrub onto clean lips in circular motions for 30 seconds. Wash off the excess or, you can lick it right off!

One of the hottest beauty trends right now is the Vampy Lip and why wouldn’t it be? Smack some dark colour onto your lips and BAM, it becomes one big statement to everyone who walks past you – I’m one bad ass bitch so do not fuck with me.

Perfect for the cold weather paired with a dark and feminine outfit, or the Vampy lip would look stunning on you in the Summer contrasted with bright colored pieces on that hot bod of yours. So go right ahead and dig through your lipstick collection and grab yourself a dark color that catches your eye.


You’re also going to need your go-to lip liner to get the perfect Vampy Lip and to make that shiz stay in place all day and night! It’s up to you whether or not you want to add a bit of gloss to your pout, so grab your fave gloss and smack on some shine when we’re all done.

Line your lips with a sharpened liner. I’m using Rimmel’s Lasting Finish Lip Contouring Pencil in ‘Cherry Kiss’. It’s important that your liner is sharpened for that extra precision and the trick is to draw right on the edge of the lip line. Then fill the rest of your lips with your lip liner.


Take your choice of lipstick and glide that onto your top and bottom lip. I’m wearing Topshop’s Lipstick in ‘Depth’.


Blot your lips by pressing a piece of tissue between your top and bottom lip. This stops any lipstick getting onto your teeth.

And that’s it! It only takes a few minutes to achieve Vampy Lips and stays on all day. Try it out and flaunt it – don’t let anyone fuck with you today or any other day.
