Top makeup mishaps
Our Head Makeup and Trend Artist, Lisa Potter Dixon, has but together the top makeup trends of Spring/Summer 2016 for you to try!
By Lisa Potter-Dixon
“Want to know how to achieve the top 10 make up trends for Spring/Summer 2016? Well here, I show you how to do them ALL!
The big brow isn’t going anywhere! And as it’s the Year of The Brow, what better time to get your ‘wow brow’ on than now?!
A trend I helped to create via the Sophia Webster show at LFW, this ethereal look is all about highlighting to the extreme.
This unique trend will potentially be bigger than strobing. A quick and easy way to give you that ‘Just been having fun in the sun’ look.
The lip debate
It’s all about two lip colours this season, The perfect nude and cherry red. Pick and choose as you please!
I predict this will be the biggest trend of the season, and my love for they’re real! blue mascara is now justified! So don’t be blue this summer, wear it!
A beautiful look with a beautiful name. The soft pastels of the Sunset eye works for everyone.
It’s back and, as a 90’s teenager, I’m thrilled! Also a great look for those that struggle with liner as it’s the opposite to perfect.
The colour block eye
A cool alternative to a smoky eye. Edgy but wearable.
Lash it up
It’s all about the gorgeous lashes. For me, nothing lashes it up better than mascara. If you pair up they’re real! tinted primer with they’re real! mascara, then watch out, because you might just fly away
A hint of Glitter
Yes! It’s not just for christmas! Glitter is here for the summer too! Wear it as liner, pat it in the centre of your eye, or go all out with a glittery smoky eye! Shimmer & shine its always glitter time!

Full eyebrows are the telltale sign of youth. With that advice in mind, there are two ways to look younger: One, fill in your eyebrows. Two, make older friends. I recommend both.
Kristina V., - Tampa, FL
For starters...beauty sleep! Truth is, even the most clever concealer tricks can’t cover some dark circles. Get a full night’s sleep then try lightening the appearance of the undereye versus covering the dark circles. Start with a daily dose of it's potent! eye cream. It hydrates & helps boost microcirculation to alleviate darkness over time.

Getting a spray tan is like getting engaged...you should have at least one practice date first! A couple weeks before your holiday, go somewhere that offers customisation & service done by hand. Just to be safe, avoid any occasion where white overalls & green hair are deemed appropriate.
Amanda T., - San Francisco, CA
Eyebrows bring balance to your face & frame the eyes. Having them shaped by a professional at a Brow Bar will keep you looking pretty, polished and fabulously put together. Pretty as a picture, my friend!
Mysti Z., - Oakland, CA
Yes. Perfectly shaped eyebrows can be met with a number of side effects: lingering glances from complete strangers, compliments from dear friends and the uncontrollable urge to snap multiple selfies.

When it comes to the land down under, leave it to the pros. Hairs the deal: A standard bikini wax removes any hair that falls just outside the most modest bikini lines and an extended bikini wax takes that hairline & moves it in a bit further. A Brazilian wax can remove any hair, from anywhere...in the front, the back and even in between!

Top 5 Eyelash Mishaps
Meet Kaitlin, a Benefit fan-atic who’s always up for beauty truth & a double-wing dare.
What makes me LOL the most is hearing other people genuinely laugh at something...it's my absolute favourite thing.
Hmm...secrets are meant to be kept, but who doesn't love to hear them? When I wear a nude or pink lip I almost always wear a shade lighter in the center of my upper & lower lips to make them appear larger! Shh!.
My favourite music to jam out to is the Calvin Harris Pandora station. The music is so upbeat and never fails to get my day/night going while I’m putting my look together.
SWEET! Always. I have the world’s worst sweet tooth...no denying that!
I can't leave the house without my Benefit Hoola Bronzer & Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara! You never know when you might need a quick touch-up and they always come in handy.
Our UK offices boast all kinds of surprising bits & bobs, from pink foosball to a friendly pooch!
Meet Kiran, a Benebabe with a sense of humour who starts a party in the powder room.
It has to be funny videos/vines...I love them! At one point I did become slightly addicted to watching them. Crazy dancing ones are definitely the best. Also, ACCENTS. I love when someone impersonates one and if it's genuinely good it has me giggling for a while. The phrase ‘easily amused' is springing to mind...
Definitely wiggle the mascara brush instead of using stroke-like motions when applying. I only started doing this myself last year and couldn't believe the difference in my lash length. It intensifies the eyelash length and makes them look a lot fuller & thicker. Also, putting sellotape on the side of your eyelids to get that really dramatic & clean effect...especially when you're doing a smoky eye. That's my favourite.
I have to say that when I'm getting dolled up, a lot of old school songs are blasted from my iPod. My favourite would be something sassy & flash, so basically...Destiny's Child, “Say My Name.” That always gets me in the mood for a night out...except when I get too into it and poke myself in the eye with the mascara brush, resulting in an uncontrollable watery eye and ruined makeup. Yay.
Savoury everyday of the week. Olives, nachos, hummus, tapas...basically anything. You name it & I'm there. I have an especially huge love for sushi.
I have a few essential beauty products that I always have on me. The first is concealer. I am a bit of a concealer queen so I tend to have my favourite in my bag just in case my dark circles decide to make an appearance. No honey, not today!
Second, lipstick. Love a good nude lippy and it's obviously super important to top off throughout the day. Thirdly, mascara...and in particular, Roller Lash. After a long day at work, lashes can look a bit dry & thin. A couple wiggles of Roller Lash and my lashes look fuller & thicker again.
