Braids have always been part of Spring's catwalks but this time they are here to stay and they come in all shapes and styles. From Kim Kardashian and baby North wearing matching tight wet look braids to Sienna Miller wearing softer boho plaits, we can all get in on the action. Raven love Redken Braid Aid a soft styling lotion that can be applied to dry hair to gain control while plaiting and with just enough hold to keep it in place without looking stiff.
Raven loves Redken.
MAKE UP: BLUE
Blue, blue everywhere. This makeup look dominated the runway this season. I (for sure) thought this look was never going to see the light of day again after the 80s but channeling everyone from Debbie Harry to Bowie the little slick of electric blue is prominent everywhere. Models wore a hint of electric blue eyeliner over their smokey eyes to full on metallic blue eyeshadow in all its blazing glory. Remember to tone down the lip if you are trying this trend and keep the eye as the focal point.
Raven Loves Chanel.
NAILS: COLOURED TIPS
Seems like metallic is not just for eyes this season. Nails on the runway where every shade and texture or metallic there is. Our favourite is matte silver!!!! Other looks were; hot coloured tips with a nude base a la Veronica Beard. A great way to keep looking stylish even when your work clothes are drab.

Bye, bye lily white skin and hello bronze. Sunkissed skin is gracing the catwalk with highlighted collarbones and decolletage. Checkbones are shining and freckles are out. Looking like you have just had a really long rest in the sun or just got off a yacht is what it's all about. Get bronzing peeps. A gentle glow is what it's all about.
Raven loves Cocoa Brown.
For the last few seasons, mascara hasn’t even been a feature and almost non-existent on the catwalk. But this season sees the return of the lash. Shapes are different this year with focus on the centre of the eye. Ask your therapist to add volume and length through the centre and taper out at the corners for a doe eyed look. Try Novalash the new lash extensions or our favourite mink ones.
For mascara, Raven Loves Max Factor.
