Smudge Tactics

Bring definition to a smoky eye look with this season’s trend. Make-up shades such as green, blue and brown doesn’t sound the sexiest BUT that’s all about to change as this season’s grungy tones are actually pretty chic. The best way to work with colours we’re not too keen on is by blending together to create a more sexy, chic look.

Recently I have noticed green, blue and browns are slowly becoming more and more popular as winter approaches. One of my favourite looks that I have noticed a lot on runway shows is a smudge of Khaki and petrol blue eye shadows blended from the lash line. This is the way to a modern smoky eye. I have listed a few of my favourite eye shadows and eye liners that are super on trend.

As a nail lacquer lover the perfect colours for winter ready nails is a must have this season. Winter nail colours are my all time favourite I love the dark blues, reds, blacks, violets and greys. Particularly blue undertones as I find these colours really compliment winter ready nails. I have listed a few of my favourite nail lacquers that I have used in the past and would highly recommend as these colours are long lasting.

We all have different tastes when it comes to wearing the right perfume whether you love heavy, sweet or light. Depending on the weather season I tend to find in summer we wear fragrances which are sweet, light and flowery. Winter time I find we change to a more heavy tone fragrance. I have listed a few fragrances that are perfect for winter wear capturing the right mood for winter weather.

Lastly hair accessories which are flattering and cool for winter wear is the leather headband. Gold studs also seem to be creeping back; Listed below.
