This is the third and final week of immersing ourselves in the new Spring/Summer 2019 Makeup Trends. There’s been a massive amount of material to cover, how I could manage all this in two posts last season, I really don’t know! So we talked about two major trends so far, which was Skin and Pop of Colour. I have four more in store, Graphic Liner, Smokey Eyes, Strong Lip and Glitter.
TREND 3: Graphic Liner
The majority of big eyeliner looks this season are paired with natural-looking skin. In this way, the liner can be in the focus making the look fresh and modern.
Dries Van Noten
Peter Philips has done a lot of shows as always, but this one was probably my favourite work of his. At Dries Van Noten the models wore a flawless, polished base with a solid block of black liner on the top lash line extended up nearly to the brows. The effect is minimal, dramatic and packs a punch, I love it!
Thomas Kluyver paired a natural laid-back base with a dramatic black flick. The liner is closely following the upper and lower eyeline making the look super-intense.
Pat McGrath wouldn’t be Pat McGrath without creating at least one beautiful liner look. Here the black liner follows the eyeline, it has a tiny addition in the inner corner of the eyes and the flick is extended with a perfectly precise line following the brows towards the inner corner. This look is pure perfection, I will definitely save this image for later as inspiration.
At Rochas Lynsey Alexander’s makeup looks as if it’s unfinished, only using a tiny flick as if suspended in the outer corners of the eyes.
Peter Philips lined only the lower inner lash line of the models and added an ornate design with a tribal feel to it on the temples of the models.
Thomas Kluyver’s makeup had grunge vibes at Ashley Williams: the laid-back, lived-in liner followed the eyeline and the crease, he added a bright orange eyeshadow and red lips for a total eclectic effect.
Dramatic eyeliner looks didn’t only come in black but we could see a good few coloured ones too. Like this metal blue created by Pat McGrath for Versace paired with glossy skin.
At Burberry, the models wore a muddy brown eyeliner with natural skin, also created by Pat McGrath.
Matteo Scarfellini has chosen a more creative approach to place the eyeliner by extending the tiny flick into a thin triangle at the lower lash line and only on one side of the face.
TREND 4: Smokey Eye
There haven’t been too many smokey eye looks around on the runways this season but the most beautiful example is the look for Tom Ford created by Diane Kendal. The models wore a sepia-brown smokey eye blended up to the brows with a beautiful glossy finish on a natural base paired with well-moisturized lips.
At Nicole Miller, a grey-black eyeshadow was blended up to the brows too and together with a natural base and hairstyle it had a 90s grunge feel to it.
At Longchamp, the models looked super-classy and elegant wearing a classic smokey eye look with soft contours and nude lips.
At Redemption, on the other hand, the black shadow had no edges or a given shape, it looked lived-in with punk vibes.
TREND 5: Strong lip
Every season there is a red lip trend, this time it looks like the satin finish ruled.
At Burberry Pat McGrath has chosen this beautiful blue toned red, paired it with glossy skin and softly blended, barely-there eye makeup.
Similarly, at Escada, the makeup artists gave the models a softly blended look and paired it with a blue toned pinky red lip.
At Hellessy a pillar box red lip was paired with red blushed cheeks and super-groomed brows.
My favourite look of the whole season is still the one at Rodarte. Inspired by Picasso, Nars makeup artist James Kaliardos used yellow, turquoise and fuchsia pink on the eyes and the Powermatte Lip Pigment from Nars in Don’t Stop on the lips.
Gregory Scaffidi opted for blurred edges to create his red lip and a paired down base with brushed up brows at Koche.
At Lela Rose, also a work of Gregory Scaffidi, the red lip looked more like a tint that went well with the vintage vibes of the whole look.
At Naeem Khan, the red lip was glossy and was paired with the most beautifully sculpted, softly blended base. The eyes were pretty bare, the eyebrows elegantly groomed courtesy of Matteo Valle.
Tom Pecheux at Moschino has chosen a muted brick red lip shade for the models and paired it with big brows and subtle black eyeliner.
Apart from red, there were some other strong and bright lip shades popping up on the runways. For instance Lucia Pica for Chanel went for a beautiful bright pink shade and paired it with elegant glossy eyes.
Luckily we have the product list she and her team used: Le Volume Revolution No 10 Noir Palette Essentielle 160 Beige Medium, Baume Essentiel Transparent (available from January), Baume Essentiel Sculpting (available from January), Les 9 Ombres – Edition N°2 Quintessence (available from January), Rouge Allure Velvet 72 Infrarose (available from January), Poudre Universelle Libre.
At The Blonds, all the models were wearing black lips with neon green eyeliner.
Last but not least Kabuki has designed a unique foil effect for the lips for Jeremy Scott.
TREND 6: Glitter
Yes, sparkle is still in though it is not as dominant a trend as last season. At Simone Rocha, Sam Bryan placed glitter in the inner corners of the eyes pairing it with a bare-looking face and lips.
Matteo Scarfellini has placed gold glitter over the eyes of the models in a very relaxed shape also pairing it with a paired down base and lips for Kate Spade.
At Valentino Pat McGrath’s beautiful coloured eyeliners were covered in sparkles…
…and some of the model’s lips too.
At Tadashi Shoji, the makeup team sprinkled bright blue and silver glitter up to the temples.
So that’s it, we have gone through all the latest of the trends, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I have. There are some new things coming up, like a brand review of The Inkey List and a Lady Gaga red carpet makeup favorites from the promotional tour of A Star is Born. Have a great week, Everyone!
