2014 has brought us trends such as mesh, metallic pieces, monochrome, the sporty look, face contouring, various nail art ideas, and short haircuts. This year is different, but with a few exceptions, especially since natural effortless looks are what fashion authorities are showing off on the runways. 


We gave you what's in this 2015 in fashion and beauty, so now we give you the trends that are in still in from 2014 and has found it's way back!


--------------------------


Comfort Shoes




Mandals, Birkenstocks, Nike Roshe Runs, Adidas Stan Smiths...you name it. As long as they're flat, they're still in. Flats are comfortable, but it has been proven that comfort doesn't necessarily mean it's not fashionable. You can add spunk by wearing sneakers, or dress down a pair of tailored pants by wearing sandals. Flat shoes are versatile, comfortable, fashionable, and they're here to stay. 

Bold Lipsticks

No need to sulk over all those red and purple lippies you bought because it's still worth raving about! Coloured lips have been such a big thing last year that they decided to stay up until this year. Every girl loves a bold lip because it adds a dash of character and glam to your #FOTD. 



Clear Skin



Clear skin will always be in! So much more now that the natural look is making a statement. This year you can opt to go out of your house without putting too much make up on. But of course that needs a little work on your side as well. You can follow these three easy steps from G Diipa's YouTube channel on how to get clear skin: cleanse, tone and moisturise.  



Basics

Since Monochrome is staying strong in 2015, anything that falls under "basic" is in. A few noteworthy pieces are crisp white polos, black sandals, cropped tops (yes, they're still in too), and tailored trousers. It may look easy to style but mastering the minimalistic trend is a challenge sometimes. Make sure it doesn't get too boring by adding textured pieces and playing around with layering! 



Eyeliner

Last but not the least is the use of eyeliner. Whether it's a thin line on top of the lid or a thick cat eyeliner, they're still in---and probably will always be in. Just like the bold lippies, the eyeliner adds more character to your look and refines your eyes a little bit more. It's perfect for just about any day and any occassion.

I’d like to think of wisdom as something you can now have without the crow’s feet and laughter lines. After all, ageing is not what it once was as shown to us by skincare power-country, Korea, and many of the world's top celebrities (have you seen Sofia Vergara? She hasn't aged a bit!). So what are the 8 most common signs of ageing?

1. Sagging and wrinkles around the eyes
2. Dull, rough skin
3. Pronounced nasolabial lines
4. Overall loss in elasticity and plumpness of the skin
5. Crepe-paper-like skin on the neck
6. Liver spots on the skin
7. Marionette lines around the mouth
8. Smaller, sagging jawline

While the signs of ageing can seem a little daunting, the good news though is that there are steps you can take to slow down the process of ageing and keep those fine lines and liver spots at bay.

--------------------------

Care for your skin from the inside out


I'm sure everyone has heard of the phrase "you are what you eat." In this instance, I couldn't agree more. Feeding your body antioxidants, water, and nutrients will help to nourish your skin. So stay away from caffeine, alcohol, and tobacco; and your body and skin will love you for it.
Always, always apply sunscreen


The number one cause of ageing is sun damage. The sun can cause damage to your skin that will only surface years later, so start your SPF regimen young! A great way to incorporate sunscreen is to buy a day moisturiser that already has a sun protection factor (SPF) in it, like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Dermalift Anti-Wrinkle Firming Day Cream SPF23 PA++. It is also full of anti-ageing skincare ingredients so you are healing your skin while you protect and moisturise it.


Invest in the right skincare


It’s helpful to have a bit of knowledge about skincare ingredients and how they work before deciding on a skincare product. For anti-ageing skincare, you want to look for active ingredients that promote the renewal of skin cells, like Vitamin A (Retinol A or Pro-Retinol A in the skincare world). Retinol A has tons of skincare benefits, including reversing sun damage, promoting the renewal of cells, and preventing damage from free-radicals. L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Dermalift is a great, affordable range which utilises Pro-Retinol A (a gentle form of Retinol, best suited to sensitive skin).


Use the products that you need


What are your skincare concerns? If you have sagging skin around your eyes, then using an eye cream is important. L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Dermalift has an eye cream that lifts as it treats wrinkles. It's also a great pick-me-up in the mornings for when your eyes need a little boost. Looking for a more all-round solution? Get a serum like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Dermalift Intensive Repairing Essence

Here's a pro-tip: when it comes to selecting a skincare product, it’s all about knowing what your skin needs. Pick a product that serves that function well and you can't go wrong!
