80s eye makeup coloured mascara beauty trends summer

I’m sure we weren’t alone when a shudder went down our spine at the news that the beauty trends of the 80s were making a resurgence.


Fortunately, however, the more-is-more era has become slightly more wearable for its 2017 comeback. Corkscrew perms and liberally-applied blush aside, this season we will be focusing on colourful eye makeup looks with brash brights pulled up toward the temple, and co-ordinating coloured mascara applied to the lashes.

Latest glitter trends and metallic lips

Of course, summer just wouldn’t be complete without a healthy dose of glitter, but this year it really is having its ‘shining’ moments

From subtle eye makeup looks to full body glitter paints, we have scoured the emerging and existing trends for our firm favourites this season and have plumped for… THE WORKS. Yes, we cheated as we just couldn’t narrow it down, so expect to see glittery under-eye makeup, metallic lips, glistening faux freckles and dazzling glitter hair lines from us this season.

Check out our new beauty recruitment agency service for temporary staff

Vanity Van is delighted to introduce its most recent service for clients: our very own beauty recruitment agency! Through this new service, clients can hire our experts to become their own temporary members of staff.

Running a salon, spa, beauty counter or team of mobile beauticians can be hard work at the best of times. Even when you are fully staffed, juggling appointments and fitting in last minute requests from valued clients can be tricky. If you have to cover sickness or maternity leave, or suffer unforeseen circumstances that leave you short-staffed, the consequences can be disastrous: cancelled appointments, disappointed clients and a dent in your reputation.temporary staff makeup recruitment

Vanity Van can help you avoid these problems by providing you with a temporary member of staff for as long as you need them. Our team are well qualified, reliable and experienced, and they can bridge the gap until your team member is back – however long that takes. Our expert, timely and professional staff will turn up when and where you need them, and quickly get on with the work to be done, ensuring a seamless service for you and your clients.

Many clients often have events that are far more popular than they were expecting, and this can quickly get out of hand and appear disorganized and badly run. Rather than risk being overwhelmed and have to turn down customers, Vanity Van’s temporary staff services means that you can hire additional staff quickly and easily, and so allow your popular event to reach as many customers as possible, while remaining well organised and on track.

If you need to hire a specialist beauty PR assistant on a temporary basis, to help promote your brand or achieve sales, Vanity Van can find you the ideal candidate from its well-trained team of beauty professionals. For a rate of £25 per hour or a day rate of £150, a member of our promotional staff will be dedicated to making your campaign a success.

All Vanity Van staff have an excellent grounding in a wide variety of techniques and skills, but they also each have their own area of expertise. This makes them an ideal addition to a team that is working with or promoting health and beauty brands.
