3 Beauty Rules We Learnt From The Catwalk

1. 
Straight Line Lashes

Leave your lash curlers at home, ladies – straight lashes are the ultimate trick to make your eyes more feline and sexy. We first spotted the trend at Sibling where models wore straight falsies to make their eyes more of an almond shape. The genius trick means you don’t need to faff with any liner as the straight outer edge of the lashes lies just where you’d put your feline flick. Bag yourself Threads Lashes in Sex Kitten, £9, and our fave most long-lasting glue, Duo Adhesive Lash Glue, £10.



2. Cheekbone-Enhancing Blush

Everything you think you know about applying your blush – forget it. Yep, applying it to the apples of your cheeks, as you normally would, is now wrong. Backstage at the Chalayan show it was all about raising it up a little higher to give your face a more lifted look. Models rocked blush around their temples and on the tops of cheeks, et voilà, their bone structure looked instantly more prominent. Try Bobbi Brown’s Blush Duo Palette, £29.50, to help fake a mini-facelift. Genius, we know!



3. XL Lip Strobing

Strobing your skin is simple but did you know you could strobe your lips too? At Alberta Ferretti, Vivienne Westwood and The Blonds, the latest lip trick to fake a fuller pout was just that. You need a creamy metallic liner – we love Maybelline Master Drama Pencil The Nudes in Rose Petal, £4.99, to outline, followed by Kiko Gossamer Emotion Creamy Lipstick in Natural Rose, £10.90, all over the lips. Finish by patting Hourglass Strobe Lightening Powder in Ambient, £34, on top. It’s a winning combo.
