GALLERY >> Top 10 Beauty Trends of 2013
1. BLUE EYES
From bright turquoise shades to deep navy hues, blue certainly had its moment this year. Whether you opted for a delicate wash of colour over the lids or a striking blue liner to make your tan pop in the summer months, there was nothing blue about this big beauty trend!
2. BOLD BROWS
You can thank the likes of Lily Collins and Cara Delevingne for putting bushy brows back on the map this year, big time. Their bold facial friends inspired women the nation over to get grooming. We’ve been tinting, tweezing, sculpting and threading and stocking up our make-up bags with all manner of brow gels and pencils. The best bit? This trend shows no signs of dying down come 2014.
3. EERIE BEAUTY
Halloween-like beauty looks were all over the AW13 catwalks- think pale skin, windswept hair, bruise-like purple and brown eye shadows and many a kohl-rimmed eye. Surprisingly pretty and easy to pull off, us beauty ladies fully embraced this trend, inspired by the likes of Kristen Stewart.
4. FELINE FLICKS
With Alexa Chung for inspiration, 2013 was the year we finally got to grips with liquid liner. From retro-fabulous cat-eyes to feline flicks, we decided to let the eyes do the talking this year.
5. GREAT-GATSBY INSPIRED BEAUTY
We blame Baz for this one- almost overnight we became a nation obsessed with the roaring 20s. From cute Marcel waves to vintage-red pouts, there’s no denying we were all in a flapper with this uber-glam look.
6. ALL MANNER OF BUNS
Whether yours was a ballerina bun, topknot or a simple plaited style, this year saw many an A-list worthy bun. Effortless and totally red-carpet ready, we loved them all.
7. NAIL ART
Thanks to some amazing new nail kits we officially nailed nail art this year. L’Oreal Paris’ Nails Porter, House of Holland’s collaboration with Elegant Touch and the Revlon by Marchesa’s 3D Jewel Appliques really upped the ante to our DIY manicures. What’s more, we loved all of 2013’s textured-effect nail polishes- our fave was Nails Inc’s Fibre Optic range.
8. PIXIE CUTS
Inspired by the likes of Anne Hathaway, Beyonce and Jennifer Lawrence to name but a few, this year has officially been the year of the short, pixie crop. Whether you took the plunge or not, there’s no denying that the world is now pixie-crazed.
9. RED LIPS
The timeless red lip will never fail to win us beauty ladies over. Whether a matte berry stain or glossy deep poppy hue, red lips were spied on the smackers of many an A-lister. We love!
10. TEXTURED HAIR
We never thought the time would come when frizz would actually be on-trend, but this season totally proved us wrong. This season was all about embracing your natural texture and volume, and hey- we loved every minute of it.
