4 Maybelline looks to #makeithappen

Monday, 4 July 2016


Last week we attended the launch of the Maybelline Spring/Summer’16 collection and there was plenty of product to get excited about. They debuted four new looks from the catwalks during Fashion Week that featured undone brows, graphic shapes, wild colours and in-your-face lashes.


Look 1: Make Vivid Happen

Matte is where it’s at this season! And what better way to showcase it than with the ultimate glamour of red. Paired with beautifully flawless skin, the lips were penciled and filled with an array of red shades.

What caught our attention: The go-big-or-go-home Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lip in Rebel Red (R109,95).


Look 2: Make Drama Happen

Here the eyes remain the reigning champ of the face with dramatic lashes and perfectly sculpted eyebrows. Makeup artists were in the mood to play – from bushy and brushed back to feral, unkempt and feathered lashes in any direction.

look2 brow drama
What caught our attention: Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara (R99,95). It might just be our new best friend for filling in brows.


Look 3: Make Vamp Happen

At numerous fashion shows this season, models marched down the catwalk rocking lip colours in deep shades: everything from sinful wines to almost vampish blue/black burgundies. No lip shade is off limits!

look3 super stay 24

What caught our attention: Superstay 24H Lipstick Duo in Blazing Red (R149,95). Hopefully this ends our lifelong search for a lippie that outlasts our morning cup of coffee!


Look 4: Make Rebel Happen

Here makeup is applied to the eyes to create a look inspired by 60s icons, like Twiggy and Japanese Anime ingénues. From falsies cut up and scattered around the eye to hand drawn flicks of liquid liner, the look features over the top exaggerated lashes.

look4 colossal chaotic

What caught our attention: Colossal Chaotic Lash Mascara (R139,95), with which you create huge, spidery, clump-tastic lashes.

    Sometimes I feel like I’m the only 22-year-old who doesn’t use make-up. I’m scared of how I might look after applying it. I’m just an eyeliner and lipstick kinda girl.
    I need to try make up sometime.

    Maybelline product price range is reasonable and value for money. The cream mousse foundation is my favourite of all. Bright bold red lipstick will enhance any look.
