With social media being the centre of everything current, we’ve scoured pages and accounts on Instagram to give you 4 beauty trends that we’ve seen take over the social sphere this year.
Matte lips have been huge all of last year, with some of the biggest beauty brands coming up with liquid formulas so you can easily create the coveted style. This trend carried on to 2016 and going strong but with a slight twist. The latest adaptation for the prettiest pouts comes with the addition ombre lips. You may have tried or at least heard of ombre hair and ombre nails but the gradient effect has now taken over your lips. We’ve got a quick how-to for you to update your beauty look this year. Apply your favourite matte lipstick all over the lips and use a lipstick that’s 3 to 4 shades lighter and apply it to the centre of the lips and blend it with a lip brush to get a seamless ombre finish.

Even though it seems like orange concealer is a bit strange – it is the easiest way to hide even the darkest of dark circles. Instagram has seen so many bloggers and beauty gurus – including Huda Beauty use this effective method. The orange hue corrects any pigmentation and counteracts the darkness that’s often seen under the eyes. Apply the orange concealer under the eyes, where you see the darkness, blend it out with a beauty blending sponge. Top it off with a concealer that’s a two shade lighter than your foundation, to highlight the under eye are and to help camouflage the orange corrector. Blend this out and set with a translucent powder. Whilst your giving your eyes a make-up rest – try opting for the Glamglow Brightmud Eye Treatment, available at TNS branches across the UAE. The mud like eye treatment brightens eye area, reduces puffiness and dark circles so the next time you’ll have a little less cover-up to do. See how vblogger Heidi Hamoud covers her dark circles.
