Beauty Guide SS13: Work Wear


Bold lips & side parting pony

The second installment of our beauty guide offers expert tips to rework your office look for spring/summer 2013.  

 Bold lip by Linda Andersson

Step 1: The key to the bold lip is to go for a strong lip color and match it with an otherwise natural look. So for my lip, I started with a white golden eye shadow on the eyelid. Curl your eyelashes and put mascara on both top and under lashes.  

Step 2: Fill in the eyebrow to a natural arched shape with a pencil or a shadow. Finish off by brushing through an eyebrow gel. 

Step 3: I chose a matt pink-red colour lipstick, which is a big trend for spring/summer 2013. Use a lip liner if you want a sharp lip or just a lipstick and blend the lip line with a cotton bud for a soft finish. 

Side parting pony by Susanne Lichtenegger

Step 1: Create a deep side parting and dry it off using your fingers. Only use a big round brush or straightener to smooth the ends out.

Step 2: Part your hair from ear to ear and clip the front section of hair away. 
Begin teasing your hair at the crown and keep teasing it a further three inches down. Gently brush your hair back into a low ponytail and secure it with an elastic.

Step 3: Take the front sections, brush one side over the ear, the other side behind and bring it into a low ponytail. Use elastic to secure.

Step 4: Take a small section of the tail and wrap it around the elastic band. Secure it by inserting it into a strap of the band or use pins.
 Finish the look off with hairspray.
