Boots SS16 Pay Day

There are times when the beauty trends at fashion week are a little, shall we say, outlandish. Paint smears, dangling jewels, bleached brows... Not really everyday wear, are they?

But then there's the more subtle trends you can pick out that, actually, you can totally wear to work without getting side eye from Michelle on reception. Here's five wearable SS16 beauty trends to try out right now...

1. Feeling Blue

Blue doesn't have to be all Pat Butcher and year 7 school disco; the key is to start subtle. Try blue eyelashes like at Ashley Williams, or if you're feeling a little more daring, ring eyes with blue liner like the models at Jonathan Saunders or put a wash of blue across the lids like at Diane von Fürstenberg.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Electric Blue, £5, Boots.com, Benefit They're Real Mascara in Blue, £19.50, Boots.com. On offer now for £17.55, offer ends 15.03.16, subject to availability.

2. The Glow

Who doesn't want radiant skin? JWAnderson, Balmain and Amanda Wakely had their models strutting down the runway with a 'post-gym' glow. Use a liquid highlighter on dabbed on top of your foundation, as a primer, or mixed into it for a sheeny complexion, and tap a subtle blusher on to the apples of your cheeks for a final touch of colour.

SEVENTEEN Skin Wow Primer, £5.99, Boots.com, Natural Collection Blushed Cheeks in Rosey Glow, £1.99, Boots.com.

3. Graphic Liner

If you're bored of the same cat-flick day in day out, now's the time to try something a bit new. Go curved like Fendi, big and bold like Vionnet or, for something a little more wearable, draw a smudgy line underneath the eye only like the models at Issa London.

Collection Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner in Black, £2.99, Boots.com, Soap & Gory Smoulder Kohl in Superblack, £5, Boots.com. On offer now for £17.55, offer ends 15.03.16, subject to availability.

4. A Red Lip

Does the red lip ever really go away? Apparently not because they're here to stay for SS16 as Topshop Unique and Jason Wu (amongst others) proved. Choose glossy or matte and pick your favourite shade (although matte and cherry was big this season) and you're good to go. Literally nothing can go wrong with this.

SEVENTEEN Stay Pout Lipstick in Date Night, £4.49, Boots.com, Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in Hot Pepper, £8.99, Boots.com.

5. Lash Game

Lashes were long, spiky, clumpy and doll-like, making statements all by themselves. Use individual fake lashes to recreate the spidery lashes at Marni, a classic set for thick ones like Louis Vuitton, or channel Daks with layers of mascara to make them all clumpy (which, lets be honest, you probably do accidentally anyway).

Eyelure Individual Pro-Lash, £5.39, Boots.com, Max Factor Velvet Volume Flash Lash Effect Mascara, £11.99, Boots.com.
