"Play with updos of every kind and try out different textures such as oils to help repair and nourish hair as well as style it." - Nicole.

From the layered red lip to doll-lashes, super slick hair to mussed-up bunches, discover their take and technique on all-things Spring/Summer beauty... 

SS16 Hair And Beauty Tips
  1. 1

    Danielle: "Skincare is vital to make-up prep so look for skincare/makeup hybrid products to really nourish skin. For extra radiance add peachy/coral cream blush and blend well. Use a highlighter in the corner of the eyes and high points on the face."
    Nicole: "Loose, natural beachy waves are always a key look for the warmer months. Try adding a texturising product or even salt spray for that effortless effect."

  2. 2

    Danielle: "Curl your lashes first, then use a buildable mascara as you'll need lots of layers to get a doll-like look. Use a clean mascara/eyebrow brush to comb through lashes in between layers so that they don't look clumpy or spidery."
    Nicole: "The ponytail is the ultimate summer hairstyle, but this season try it set in low bunches with a little natural wave for something a bit different."


  3. 3

    Danielle: "For cooler skintones I'll go for true reds and pink-reds, while for warm skintones I'll use corals and orange-reds. As the layered red lip is the trend this season try mixing and matching your shades to create your perfect red and add in liner and gloss too to play around with the textures."
    Nicole: "Effortless hair is really key right now, so just do a simple up-do and really tease out pieces to give a mussed-up look."

  4. 4

    Danielle: "Fine-dust or glitter-metaliic creme is a strong look this season and it's about having the confidence to apply it. Start out with a gentle dusting and sweep lightly along or above the lid. Try adding along the brow bone for a striking effect." 
    Nicole: "Embrace your baby hairs and slick down with gel to create a feature. Try using hair oils too for a high-shine finish - perfect for keeping hair hydrated in the summer."

Danielle: "The products I can't do without right now are; the Beauty Blender, Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat pencil in Pillow Talk, YSL Touche Éclat, Bobbi Brown CC Cream, Laura Mercier Secret Concealer, Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler, Lancome Hypnôse Drama Mascara, Charlotte Tilbury Rock ‘N’ Kohl Eye Pencil in Bedroom Black and Kiehl's Facial Fuel No-Shine Moisturising Lip Balm.
