Want to switch up your look for all the summer parties on the horizon? It’s easy to get stuck in a beauty rut – whether it be the same hairstyle, lip colour, or eye look. Here are some of our current favourite fresh styles to give a whirl at the bar or on the dance floor!

Metallic Lips

Metallic lipstick doesn’t have to be reminiscent of a 90’s rave – the modern way to wear this unique look is to choose a bronze, rose gold, or silver-reflective lip shade, so the final look is subtle, not OTT.

Purple Highlighter

This year saw cheekbone highlights expand from the traditional champagne and shimmery white shades into everything from holographic opal to subtle purple like the above. When done correctly, purple highlighter draws attention in the best way.

Deep side parts

Always wear your hair with a centre part? Take that all the way to the side for the sexiest hair flip ever. Bonus: instant volume!

Smudgy copper liner

Skip the black kohl and opt instead for a coppery version instead – the shade is perfect for smudging to give eyes definition when wearing a bold lip, because the final look isn’t as heavy as a black smudged version, so it doesn’t clash with your bright lipstick!

Front hair strands

Yep, seriously. It’s time to welcome these 90’s babies back! Rather than slicking them poker straight with gel like you did back in the day, the new way to do messy front pieces with an updo is to let them look natural – think soft, wavy, and like they just fell out of your style by accident. They make for a gorgeously romantic finish.
