After a long week of work, I am excited to further dig into the Spring/Summer makeup trends as promised.
Let’s recap: The current beauty trends fall into similar categories as last time – skin, pop of colour, strong lip, graphic liner, smokey eyes and glitter – however, the manifestation of these trends are quite different. The number one trend for the next season will be skin, I have already discussed it in my previous post here, I will try to condense (EDIT: and failed) all the others in this one starting with the next major trend:
TREND 2.: POP OF COLOUR
Some designers used subtle washes of colour, the most beautiful example of that was at the Armani show. Pinks and purples were quite big predictions for next season and I love how makeup artist Linda Cantelo seamlessly blended the blush up to the temples into the eyeshadow. Finishing the makeup off with healthy-looking lips using a touch of pink balm, the end result is truly ethereal.
Tom Pecheaux also opted for a pinky glow at Brandon Maxwell, pairing it with subtle purple and pink smokey eyes.
Makeup artist Lynsey Alexander gave her models pastel lilac and blue sparkle in the inner corner of their eyes keeping the rest of the face minimal.
Oranges and bronzes made also frequent appearances on the runways, Tom Pecheaux here used an orange wash of colour on the eyes, cheeks and nose too.
Courtesy of Gucci Westman the models at Brock Collection wore softly blended bronzy-brown wash of colour over the eyes and cheeks paired with a blurred out red shade on the lips.
Oscar De La Renta
The flawless, satin-feel base, beautifully sculpted cheeks and soft purple smokey eyes reminded me a little bit of the ’90s at De La Renta.
Makeup artist Diane Kendal opted for bright washes of different colours over the eyes that matched the model’s hair too.
At Erdem Val Garland used a beautiful deep green wash of colour over the eyes of the models, pairing down the rest of the makeup.
At Lutz Huelle the model’s makeup was very minimal, even their eyebrows were bleached so the beautiful pastel blue eyeshadow can be the focus of the whole look.
Similarly at Marques Almeida, blue was the focus of the look only deeper, brighter with no sharp edges.
Savage x Fenty
At camp Rihanna, the models wore a ’70s inspired pink look with different shades and textures paired with wine red nails.
We have seen quite a few eyeliner looks with different colours. Like the one at Versace, here, Pat McGrath used a sparkly greeny blue.
Also, Pat McGrath has created beautiful graphic eyeliner looks with sparkly greens and pinks for Valentino.
At Nassir Zaheh the look was all about the blue eyeshadow in the outer corner of the eyes courtesy of Matteo Scarfellini.
The Guy Laroche look was centred around the two sharp orange lines over the model’s eyelid with a minimal base.
Burberry had Pat McGrath create a muddy brown sharp liner featuring their look.
There were various other artistic placements of colour on the runways. At Guy Laroche, they had this fun look on some of the models. Pink eyebrows? Yes, please!
At Ulla Johnson, bright pink eyelashes were paired with subtle red lips.
The models at Manish Arora looked like a modern painting using oranges, pinks and blues over their faces.
Anna Sui shows always feature very creative makeup, this time Pat McGrath blended yellow over the models’ forehead and pinks over the cheeks and lower eyeline.
Lanyu had brush stroke-like effect with splashes of colour on the eyelids and lips.
My absolute favourite look using pops of colour was at the Rodarte show. The bright shades on the eyes, the red lips and the flowers in the hair made the models look like a beautiful, vibrant Frida Kahlo painting. I just can’t take my eyes off them, all the looks are mesmerizing.
As you can see it was impossible to condense all the rest of the looks in part two, so there will be a part three…the last one, I promise! 😉
