Back to the 80s
The 80s turned out to be a MAJOR influence at Paris Fashion Week, with brands like Kenzo, Topshop Unique, Nina Ricci and Marc Jacobs all referencing the era. Think lipstick-bright blush, side-swept waves and colour-pop eye make-up – not for the fainthearted!

Plaits will be the hair trend to try this summer, and the simple schoolgirl plait is just the tip of the iceberg. From the skinny braids at Roberto Cavalli, to the plaited chignons at Dior, there are countless, sophisticated styles to choose from. They’ll also help control that frizzy, hot-weather hair!

Harry Potter make-up
Harry Potter fans are in a frenzy over HP-inspired make-up products. Story Book Cosmetics have gone viral with their Witchcraft and Wizardry eyeshadow palette and wand-inspired make-up brushes. Meanwhile, Etsy seller AWhimsicalWillow is struggling to keep up with the demand for her Harry Potter highlighting palette. Stocking filler, anyone?
