5 best winter beauty trends for busy girls

Top 5 beauty trends

If you live somewhere where the weather creeping into the most chilly months, it’s time to swap last summer’s coral lipstick and beach-waved locks for more wintery options.

The latest beauty looks from the international runways have heralded a shift towards more expensive, luxurious looks. Think perfected skin, lightly flushed cheeks and glossy lips.

Here are five of our favourite, no-fuss looks from the Fall 2015 shows that each need just a handful of products or tools to recreate:

1. LOOK 1: Minimal with a Twist (As seen at Prada and Donna Karan)

THINK: Natural glowing skin and rosy cheeks teamed with a simple statement eye.
