BACKSTAGE| Hair and Make-Up trends at Swedish School of Textiles SS14

Eager to know what hair and beauty looks are going to be hot in SS14, team Fashion Scout headed backstage at Swedish School of Textiles to get to get a peek at the action. There were a few definitive hair or make-up trends spotted; au natural hair and make-up, bare eyes, a host of sleek hairstyles, along with rosy complexions.

The majority of the models had their long, tumbling hair blow-dried straight but not poker straight- the style gave the illusion that hair was naturally straight and not necessarily ironed down with straighteners to give a sleek finish. Movement with a slight texture was essential to this look. The front of the hair was combed back from the face in small sections, using a tailcomb and label.m Hold and Gloss Spray to hold it in place.

As for make-up looks, natural luminosity seemed to be the theme du jour. Faces were fresh, radiant and glowing thanks the Vitamin E range from The Body Shop- the Vitamin E face mist was spritzed on in abundance to give that dewy, plumped-up effect. Aloe Soothing Daycream ensured gentle hydration and a smooth canvas to apply moisturising liquid foundation. Cheekbones were illuminated with The Body Shop Radiant highlighter and cheeks were lightly dusted with subtle rosy shades of All in One blusher. Under-eye circles were camouflaged with creamy concealers and eyes were slightly defined with soft, neutral shades. Mascara was minimal not to detract focus away from the face.
