What will be the big hair and make-up trends this year?
Perth make-up artist Yvette Gray says bright colours should be your beauty staple for 2011.
“Looking at what was on the catwalk at New York Fashion Week, there is a lot of citrus and coral on the eyes,” she says.
“Those colours need to be paired with nude lips and cheeks, otherwise the look is way too much.
“There were also a lot of pale white or soft nude eyes, generally teamed up with cantaloupe and watermelon tones on the lips.”
We will also see a new take on the classic smoky eye this year.
“It is always a strong look that never dates but it will be modernised for 2011 by adding a metallic finish to the eye,” Ms Gray says.
“It’s a great evening look.”
Napoleon Perdis national creative team leader Kate Squires says green is also emerging as a key trend.
“The arresting shade evokes so many things – from money to Mother Nature – but, for us, green shadow and liner on the eyes is also undeniably glamorous, especially when paired with glowing skin, contoured cheeks and pinkish lips,” Ms Squires says.
Ms Squires says it is important not to get so caught up with colour that you forget the basics.
“No make-up technique or look is complete without the perfect base and a lot of women still find this hard to achieve,” she says.
“It’s all in the priming. As Napoleon would say ‘not to prime is a crime’.”
MAC senior artist Nicole Thompson says glossy skin texture will be pivotal in the coming seasons.
“We are seeing much less of a heavy foundation look,” she says.
“It is becoming more and more popular – and generally looks much more flattering – when you can actually see your skin through your make-up. This is especially true if you want to play with the bright colour trend.
“Keep the rest of your make-up really pared back and natural to keep the look modern and not trashy.”
Ms Thompson suggests wiping make-up off your eyelids and cheekbones to reveal your natural skin colour and adding gloss accents to the high points of the face.
Toni & Guy national educator and Subiaco salon owner Tracey Laing says the hottest hair trend for 2011 is the bold, graphic cut.
“Those shapes have got a bit of a power chic attitude, and they’re a bit edgy,” she says.
Ms Laing says classic shapes like the bob will be modernised with bold fringes, a lot of texture and layers.
“Rather than thinking Courtney Love, though, this look will be a lot more finished,” she says.
“It’s a lot more glamorous and high fashion while still being a bit more disordered and textured.”
Balayage was a big trend last year but Ms Laing says 2011 will be all about colour to complement the cut.
“There won’t be one dominant colour,” she says. “The key will be fresh, expensive and glamorous-looking colour that has good tone to it.
“The look we’re seeing is moving towards glossy, healthy colours.”
We’ll be seeing more voluminous hair on the streets and she predicts the topknot will definitely carry into the new year.
“It does suit most face shapes and ages,” she says.
Celebrity manicurist Ali Veras, who has shaped the nails of Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman and Kylie Minogue, says nails will be bright and playful in 2011.
“Bright and bold shades of turquoise, tomato red, fuchsia and coral are all the rage this season and will make fingers and toes pop,” she says.
“I am really loving Zoya’s new Flash summer collection, which includes the perfect turquoise cream, a vivid tangerine and a cherry red.”
You don’t necessarily have to use the same polish on your toes and fingers, she says.
“Many of my clients like a more neutral or pale shade on their nails and take a more anything goes approach to their toes.”
