If you are an aspiring beauty aficionado with a penchant for the latest in makeup trends, staying on top of the latest in all things beauty can be a time-consuming – not to mention expensive – task. From perfectly primed skin, to skin-contouring, to defined and thick brows and everything in between, beauty trends have a tendency to be fair-weather and frivolous.
However, two of 2018’s biggest beauty looks are staple styles that have stood the test of time: nude lips and winged liners.
Seen on numerous catwalks this year, on the runways of designers from Versace to Saint Laurent, and many more besides, this sultry make-up trend that looks to the '60s for inspiration is very much in vogue in 2018. Featuring dewy skin, layers of false lashes, dramatic and winged liner, and pale lips, you’ll feel like a glamour girl from the 60s when you opt for this classic look. And if you’re unsure where to start, you’re in luck with the help of Mellow Cosmetics, because with just a couple of key pieces from our collection, you’ll be hot to trot in no time at all.
If you want to nail this trend perfectly, look to the likes of Brigitte Bardot, Twiggy, Audrey Hepburn and fellow beauty icons from the 60s, whose hair styles were brilliantly behived and whose make-up was flawless, all of whom offer perfect examples of this timeless look.
Start with a flawless base from which to work, and treat yourself to our newly launched Precision Liquid Eyeliner for that all important cat eye. Maintain a steady hand while applying the eyeliner, and start from the socket outwards, making the flick as subtle or dramatic as you like.
Much like nude nails, lips look best with a lipstick whose colour is either a shade lighter or darker than your complexion, rather than an exact match, and the right shade of nude can make your lips look healthy, plump, and effortlessly sexy. Prep your lips with a slather of moisturising balm, and, once you’ve allowed it to sink in, line them with a shade slighter darker than your natural colour before filling them with Mellow Cosmetics' aptly named lipstick in Nude, for a flawless pout reminiscent of the 60s.
