While some of the other major cosmetic houses have gone with floral, colour pop themes for their Spring 2015 collections, Stila are keeping things natural, using contouring and neutrals to shape and shade for a Brigitte Bardot bombshell look.
Contouring was big news last year, and the trend is set to continue for 2015. You’ve probably seen the contouring tutorials online which use lots of makeup, concealer and highlighter to achieve a sculpted effect, well as part of their Spring 2015 collection, Stila have released Shape & Shade Custom Contour Duo, a convenient customized duo of cream contour and highlighting shades.
The Shape & Shade Custom Contour Duo uses matte creams, to give a naturally sculpted look that won’t accentuate oily skin or fine lines. The formula also blends easily to give a soft-focus, line-filling effect leaving skin smooth and defined. It’s long wear, non-transfer, waterproof and sweatproof and available in three shades – light, medium and dark. In this Stila tutorial, Stila Global Director of Education & Artistry (and runway make up artist), Sarah Lucero shows how to use the Custom Contour Duo to achieve a naturally contoured look:
Big, beautiful brows are another trend that’s showing no signs of slowing down for 2015, and for their Spring 2015 Collection, Stila have added 3 new brow products to their range.
Stay All Day Brow Gel & Brush is an innovative, long-wearing brow gel that adds volume and definition to thin, sparse lashes. It’s water-proof, transfer-proof and nourishing to brow hairs and is available in 5 shades to match all hair colours – Blonde, Caramel, Medium Brown, Dark Brown and Black.
The tube is designed to dispense the right amount of gel for mess free application, and by using Stila’s Double Ended Brow Tool, you can achieve instant definition and fullness for thin, barely there brows.
Also released for brows this month is Stay All Day Precision Glide Brow Pencil, an advanced, long-wearing micro-liner that has a spooley brush end for blending and shaping. It glides on easy for smooth application and contains micro-minerals which absorb oils to ensure that the product doesn’t smudge or budge. Available in 5 shades – Black, Dark Brown, Brown, Auburn and Blonde.
The third brow product in Stilas Spring Collection is Stay All Day Waterproof Brow Colour, with an innovative marker-like brush tip for natural, buildable coverage. It’s long-wearing and waterproof so won’t budge, smudge or transfer, and is available in 3 shades – Dark, Medium and Light.
For lips Stila have added a collection of 3 nude shades to their popular Colour Balm range. Nude Interlude Colour Balm Lipstick, are 3 nude shades for fair, medium and dark skin tones. They’re infused with conditioning emollients and cooling peppermint oil and deliver the full pigment of a lipstick with all the moisture of a lipbalm, and are the perfect go-to lipstick for day time bombshell glamour.
Finally, also for lips there’s Lush Lips Water Plumping Primer. Create the perfect canvas for your lipstick with this water-based lip primer that plumps, smooths and moisturises lips. As the product disperses on the lips, the water evaporates, leaving a conditioning shield which seals in moisture and delivers volumizing properties. It also contains high performing pigments to neutralize discolouration and imperfections to leave you with a perfectly prepped lip.
Stila’s Spring 2015 Collection is available at Sam McCauleys Redmond Square, Wexford, Fairgreen, Carlow and Manor West, Tralee.
