This season sees the return of the 70â€™s. Think velvet, corduroy, and even flares were seen making a comeback on the catwalks. Pair them with a Victoriana blouse or roll neck and learn to layer. Itâ€™s time to make those important annual purchases of a statement coat and boots and if youâ€™re a dedicated follower of fashion youâ€™ll be after mid-calf chunky heeled footwear and a cosy cape coat or maxi blanket coat. So how do we accessorise our new wardrobe? With our lipsâ€¦
Fashion houses like Givenchy, Oscar de la Renta and DKNY all sent their models down the runway sporting full brows, slightly blushed cheeks and bold lips. This look is easy to achieve for all ages and can complement your natural features. Pro Tip: A cream blush can be used to add colour to both cheeks and lips.
Bold lip colour can be worn by ladies of any age as Helen Mirren proves. Keep eyes softly lined and avoid metallic/pearlescent hues as these can emphasise fine lines around the lip area. Pro Tip: Use a lip primer and liner to help the lip colour stay put and avoid it â€˜bleedingâ€™.
Another way to glam up an outfit is to coat your nails in a glossy shade of berry, plum or burgundy. Experiment with two toned nails but keep the colours warm and rich.
Remember: If youâ€™re making a statement with a pop of colour on your lips, for the rest of your face, less is more. A smear of cream blusher over a natural cheek, a smudge of smoky liner and mascara is all you need to create this look.
