With a new season of trends right around the corner, stay ahead of the curve with a rundown of the best looks to recreate and try out this season.
Dewy skin has been on trend for a while now and it was seen on the runways again this season at shows like Temperley, Peter Pilotto and Issey Miyake. Blend or dust your sheen or shimmer of choice onto the high points of your face to let the light reflect, giving your face a bone structure to die for. Opt for a cream highlighter for a natural sheen and a powder for high impact luster.
Summer is coming, and as seen at Alexander Wang, Anna Sui and Altuzarra, sun-kissed models that looked like they had just stepped off a yacht in the Mediterranean sauntered down the runways. A dusting of bronzer and blusher on the high points of your face where the sun would usually hit you, down the center of your nose, your cheekbones and temples, will warm up your face and ooze Ibiza vibes.
Victoria Beckham and Saint Laurent both went au natural for the makeup at their shows. The ‘you but better’ trend is all about accepting your beauty and enhancing it. To recreate this natural look, use a tinted moisturizer instead of heavy coverage foundation and keep the rest of your makeup as pared back as possible.
Brows have been having a moment for quite some time now and they seem to be getting bigger and bushier. Models at Roland Mouret, Cavalli and Stella McCartney wore the latest look, boasting brushed up brows, the bushier the better. Add a tinted eyebrow gel to your beauty routine for fuller looking, defined brows that stay in place.
From cherry bomb to pillar box, red lips are back on trend for spring/summer, as seen at classic fashion houses like Max Mara and Dolce & Gabbana. For this trend, the color is key, so experiment with different looks. Try a gloss in a deeper red shade for that bitten lip effect as seen at Haider Ackerman.
Shades of blue were daubed on eyelids at Marni echoing the hues of the ocean and sky. Use your fingerprints to dab the shade of your choice freely onto eyelids, precision not required. If bright color is overwhelming, start with blue eyeliner along your upper lash line to get a hint of the effect, as seen at Oscar de la Renta and Missoni.
Flawless skin akin to supermodels of the ‘90s was on the runways at Versace, Bottega Veneta and Balmain. Since this trend is more skincare than makeup, creating a perfect canvas is the key for this look. Dedicate time to regular exfoliation in your skincare regime to ensure your skin looks its best and try a vitamin C-based lotion or cream to brighten and smooth the skin.
