Beauty Cravings :: Inspiring Hair and Makeup SS 2014

When it comes to beauty trends for spring/summer 2014, there’s no shortage of inspiration. Braids, slicked-back hair (the ‘I just stepped out of the pool’ look), low ponytails, vivid matte lips, neon eye makeup and even no makeup graced the catwalks. Here are a few of the hair and makeup looks I can’t wait to try out….
