Carmen Beauty,

Best of Beauty, Hair and Fashion 2016

2016 brought about many trends from reviving flares of the 70’s and chokers from the 90’s, so we’ve put together a list that we are calling ‘Carmen’s Best of 2016!’, where we will be taking you through our favourite make up, hair and fashion looks of the last year.


There’s been a lot of big, bold and beautiful make up trends rocking the world in 2016, including bold matte lips, big brows, beaming highlighter and not forgetting a good, strong contour. From deep, dark berry and brown tones to vibrant reds and corals, the age of perfecting that pout has begun and with the Jenner/Kardashian clan flawlessly leading the way, we couldn’t help but jump on board the trend.


We’ve seen a very mixed bag of hairstyles in 2016 with celebrities setting some unlikely trends that somehow seemed to work and take the world by storm. The hottest trends of the year included silver and rainbow hair, with the likes of Kylie Jenner and Lady Gaga experimenting with vibrant, unique colours, showing us that expressing yourself has no boundaries! Sleek poker straight hair with a centre parting also made a comeback whilst a wavy bob cut and a sleek straight fringe also made an appearance, proving that edgy is the way forward! One of the more obscure trends of the last year was one that divided opinion, which was the glitter roots trend – a big hit at festivals, this ingenious trend not only added sparkle to any look but it was also a cheap, easy way to disguise those roots in a hurry!


2016 saw the revival of many past trends from iconic era’s including the 70’s and 90’s with flared jeans, chokers and high neck vest tops. Other trends that ruled the runway were satin slip dresses paired with a basic tee, bodysuits and metallic midi skirts, which made the perfect pieces for taking you from day to night. One look in particular that made a strong statement was the chic, flawless trouser suit, proving that you don’t need to wear a dress to look stand-out fabulous!
