The biggest trends we are loving from both international and local runways this year is the bold lip. Bright, popping colours like orange, violet and fushia are all the range.
This make-up look was showcased during the SA Fashion Week (SAFW) Woolworths StylebySA show featuring collections by Rich Mnisi, Thebe Magugu, Wanda Lephoto and Sindiso Khumalo.
Celeb makeup artist, Nthato Mashishi, who is part of the Woolworths Beauty Collective created the looks for the runway show which included the "dewy skin with bold lip" look.
Mashishi showed us just how easy it is to create the look...the look is easy enough for even make-up newbies to create at home.
Using only Woolworths's in-house makeup brand, WBeauty, he used a handful of products and hardly any brushes.
Starting by moisturizing the skin with the WBeauty mist and skin primer to give the skin that healthy dewy (healthy and moisturised) look.
Since the look doesn't require a full foundation coverage he used the "Wet to Dry pressed foundation" focusing on the eye area as well as any blemishes you wish to cover. I loved the fact that he used his fingers to gently dab and blend the foundation into the skin.
Keeping the brows as natural as possible he simple filled the brows and brushed them out. Easy peasy. No dramatic unnaturally shaped brows.
The finishing touches included a bit of bronzer and highlighter which he used both on the face and eyes. This is all you need before applying a pop of colour of your choice on the lips.
Mashishi used the WBeauty's "Lip and Cheek" stick in Violet to complete the look.
His top tip: Use the WBeauty "Gel eyeliner" underneath your lower eyelid to give your lashes added volume.
