On this Stylish Sunday, we dissect the most ideal beauty looks to match the heavy furry jackets of the season. Read on for more on this 'Almost Famous' inspired look and how to achieve it for yourself!
Here we give you 3 beauty options to match a key fashion trend. It’s your choice – give one step a go for a touch of fashionable cool, add a second if you want to go one step further to complement your beauty choices with the fashion in question, and try all three when you want to nail the entire look! How far will you take it?
Beauty Step #1 - a toussled, volume enhanced mane
The Penny Lane vibe (see Kate Hudson in the aforementioned Almost Famous) of the furry jacket look is undeniable. For capturing a truely 70's feel, dry your hair naturally and let your it hang loose. Don't fret! Natural looking locks needn't be limp. Get yourself a can of dry shampoo and start spraying stat! Dry shampoo is not only the ideal day-between-washes go-to product, but is also fantastic for adding a little 'oomph' to a mane that is lacking in the volume department. In fact, when Kirsten Dunst played Marie Antoinette for her on screen turn as the ill-fated Frenchie, stylists reportedly used dry shampoo to help tease her hair high into place. The dry shampoo you'll find in all of our beauty bags here at bbHQ? Batiste Dry Shampoo! Spray into roots and rub rub rub with finger tips to bring a little volume back to your crown. Then use a straightener to add a few kinks and waves, or just straighten the ends of your hair as a finishing touch.
Beauty Step #2- A khol rimmed eye
Nothing says rock chic like a khol rimmed eye. Simply grab your favourite liner, draw it around the entire rim of your eye (the waterline and on the outer edges of your lashes) and then smudge, smudge, smudge! You can use any colour you like; brown, navy and silver looks great (we can't go past classic black though) Eye of Horus Smokey Eye Pencil is an old fave here at bbHQ and comes with smudging tip - a must-have for the smokey eyed look.
Beauty Step #3 - Subtle nude lips
The final touch to top off the whole look? A simple, subtle nude lip. With dark eyes and messed up hair, you need to keep the rest simple. We are loving Glamourous Minerals Ultra Gloss Lip Polish Tube right now, which comes in a few pinky/nude tones - there is definitely one to match your skin tone!
And there you have it bellas! Do you love this look? Will you be rocking it this winter? One thing is for sure- these coats will definitely keep you warm in winter! - Lauren
