Who wants to know what’s about to trend in hair and make up? Simple, just ask the Priceline pros, Rae Morris & Kenneth Stoddard. I was lucky enough to get some insight last week, straight from the source and I took one of the looks for a test run.
Rae and Kenneth discussed the trends that we can expect to see coming through on the runways, and how we can achieve the looks ourselves. What I love about Priceline‘s two beauty gurus is that they are always conscious of us being able to recreate the trend ourselves, making sure they are not only achievable but also wearable.

The look I decided to recreate was textured tresses with earth toned make up.
I dried my hair til it was almost fully dry. Just roughly with a brush and hairdryer – I found there was no need to blow dry.
I added a curling lotion through the mid lengths to the ends of my hair. I typically try to avoid heated irons/curlers on my hair so I used sponge rollers to create the texture. Mine are medium sized so 3 a side is perfect. Roll away from your face on each side when affixing the sponge rollers. I leave these in for about an hour, blasting with the hair dryer sporadically.
When removing, simply finger brush your curls to separate. Like all curls, they will drop. Again, I have fine hair so I spray the roots with dry shampoo and then a mist of hairspray over the lot…and we’re done.
When it comes to trialing a new colour makeup look, I’ll always stick to my same application techniques but simply switch out the products.
Eyes – Medium tone all over then adding definition with a darker socket colour. I use this same colour to brush along my lower lash line. Brush eyebrows up with a natural coloured eyebrow mascara. Finally, I finish with a liquid black eyeliner and mascara, top and bottom.
Cheeks – I brushed a bronzed, almost terracotta colour slightly under my cheekbone as a contour. I also like to bush this lightly down both sides of my nose, near my hairline (at the top of my forehead) and along my jaw line. Next I added a shimmer powder along the tops of my cheekbones, along my brow bone and down the bridge of my nose.
Lips – I finished with a matte lip colour in a darker terracotta/clay colour.
Final tip from Rae – luminous skin. Whether its adding a illuminator to your body or it’s skipping the face powder. This season, it’s about dewy, shiny skin!
