John Lewis Edition magazine, editorial photoshoot featuring Ghanian Model Kate Menson with bold eye make-up.

The biggest eye make-up trends of 2016 were complete opposites.

However, do not be fooled, there is effort involved in both makeup styles no matter how messy and effortless the trend appears. And at the end of the day, or rather, the year, it only narrows down to which look you prefer... Under the Dryer takes you throu ... Read More
