2014 RECAP // MAKE - UP + NAIL ART {part 1}

As 2014 has come to a close, I've decided to take a look back at all the best trends of the year. There were so many! Over the next few posts I will be talking about and discussing my favourite looks of 2014... so stay tuned for that! Here are my top make-up trends:

The Orange lip
From bright neon to pale corals, the orange lip was massive. Although I was never brave enough to go bright orange, I still loved the pinky coral shade. They key to this trend was which colours perfectly complemented your skin tone.

Best lip products:
2. MAC
3. Revlon

A Golden Glow
As the world is becoming more aware of the risks of tanning, the beauty world has taken a step in the right direction - faking the bronzed glow. Whether that's bronzer, body shimmer or a tanning lotion - there's options for everyone.

Products I love:

The Boy-Brow
Cara Delevingne and Lily Collins are the leaders of this trend (well in my opinion anyways) and it has taken the world by storm. Say goodbye to thin arched brows, because they won't be coming back for a while.

Best Brow shapers/groomers:

And my favourite nail trends:

Au Naturel 
What I love about the nude colour trend is that it looks very professional, sleek, and goes with everything. The colours range from brown tones to pinky shades, which means that there is a colour to suit everybody's skin tone (because after all, your skin colour is actually 'nude').

My favourite colours:

Midnight Muse
Dark shades such as plum, burgundy and navy blue were seriously on trend this year, and for a good reason - they're gorgeous!
