The wavy shape gives you huge crimps that’re going to blow 80s hairstyles out of the water.

They are as fabulous as they sound and involve rainbow colours, glitter and of course huge show-stopping false eyelashes.

Fashion Week gave us a peek into the makeup trends of Spring and Summer and we love what we have seen. The runway models were seen wearing dark and gothic lipsticks, so get ready to welcome metallic, dark and deep shades into your makeup bag this year and be the envy of all of your friends.
If you’re a big fan of glitter, then you are going to love what this year has to offer, across the runway there were hundreds of models sporting the sparkles on their lips, eyes, cheeks, hair and even on their ears.
