We've been on a bridal countdown for a couple of months now, and after covering off any major skin and cosmetic concerns, mastering the at-home facial and even highlighting our favourite bridal lippies — it's finally time to talk about the nails. Now before you start thinking about the perfect nude or blush pink, let us take you on a rather edgy talon journey with not-so-traditional but very alluring colours. Think black, deep burgundy and glitter.

We know. The perfect mix of hot and cute, right? As the Sunglass Hut global ambassador, Georgia May Jagger brought her signature style of vixen-meets-minx beauty to Sydney this week for the return of the brand's pop up floating store on Sydney Harbour. We were so excited to meet Britain's petite slice of rock royalty so we could quiz her on all things hair, makeup and skincare — click through to find out her beauty secrets.
It was a sunny day in Old Blighty back in 2006, when supe Kate Moss stepped out in high-waisted flares and a grey t-shirt. This simple, '70s inspired outfit sent the entire world into a spin and saw flared jeans land in stores the world over. Her hair was typically effortless, with what looked to be barely and product and little to no makeup. The no makeup, makeup look is more than a thing right now — and in true Mossy style, she's been rocking years before us. Sigh. In this week's Icons Kit, we channel Kate Moss, the'70s dream.
One of the strongest makeup look to come out of New York fashion week so far is the minimalist. Whether it be nude lips at Victoria Beckham, neutral nails at Zac Posen (and Derek Lam and Thakoon), white nails at Rag & Bone, barely there makeup at Altuzarra and Charlotte Ronson and clean, natural hair at Jill Stuart; this Spring is looking like a beautifully plain one. There's an emphasis on strong brows and contouring on the face, with nude (and matte) nails reigning supreme. In this week's colour story, we're taking our cues from the runway and going back to basics. Just remember that this isn't about no makeup, this is about nude makeup with a dash of dewy, highlighted cheekbones to boot — all hail the minimalist.
If all the bright colours in store have temporarily blinded you and you've missed the memo, neon is the trend right now and it'll be sticking around for the next few months. Wearing neon — whether it be yellow, pink, orange or lime green — is not for the faint hearted, but an easy and subtle way to incorporate the trend into your daily look is through beauty. Neon nail polish is having a huge moment, and the bright lipsticks of seasons past are getting, well, brighter! But don't stop with makeup, you can fluoro-ify your tools and accessories, too. It's time to be bright, babes.
