Down to Earth
This seasons’ trends are down to earth and inspired by the wild textures and shades of nature that are in full-force at this time of year. Women’s hair is natural with a touch of rebellion and hair colour is an intense shade of red and orange that is painted on for a fiery finish. Nails are natural with delicate detail placed sparingly for a minimalist yet striking effect whereas makeup contrasts this with lips drenched in high shine burgundy colours and eyes making a statement in deep plum and metallic berry shades.
