Eye-Catching Red Lip
For the first time in many a Spring season, the red lip is here for the warmer weather. Not only is it red, classic and gorgeous but it comes with a twist: a no makeup contrast. By that, I mean leaving the brows, and skin natural while keeping the eyes entirely bare except for the occasional sweep of pale eyeshadow. Recreate this look: Tom Ford Lipstick, Nyx liquid lipstick and NARS lip pencil.
As much as I try to deny it, the eighties are back (*shudder*) and I can't avoid including one of these trends anymore since there are so many of them (*sob*). Draping is the eighties version of 2016's dramatic contouring and is done by bringing your pink blush up the cheekbone, temple then across your lid and brow bone. Recreate this look: Becca cheek and lip tint, Urban Decay blush and Bite Beauty multistick.
The Smokey Eye
The Smokey Eye is a makeup trend that has become a classic since the nineties and this SS17 its back again. You would've seen it at fashion week in an incredibly simple manner: soft, minimalistic yet messy. To achieve this look, grab a grey eyeliner and start my lining your eyes then bringing it higher up your lid. To achieve the relaxed look, use your finger to blend the liner out. Recreate this look: Urban Decay eye pencil, MILK eye pigment and NARS eyeshadow.
I noticed this trend gracing the catwalk last season and now, the look is back and trendier than ever. Grab a pigmented shadow and drag it across your lid with your finger. This is a look that you probably won't see on people you pass on the street (like many fashion week trends) but it can be modified for everyday. To modify it, choose the colour of your choice, whether that be black, red, yellow, brown... and draw a line in your crease for subtilty. Recreate this look: Sephora eyeliner, Make Up For Ever eyeshadow and Clinique lid pop.
Thanks to the makeup legend Pat McGrath's work in FW16, glitter lips are immensely popular this season. This is eye-catching, glamorous and doesn't have to be uncomfortable. Recreate this look: Pat McGrath lip glitter kit, MAC glitter pigment and NYX lipstick.
Natural & Clean
Last but not least, we have the bare faced trend. This "no makeup" look is one that is nothing new for fashion week. However, when I say bare faced, I mean bare faced. Several fashion houses are choosing to keep their models natural by leaving the skin untouched then focusing on strobing and a light blush. Recreate this look: BECCA highlighter, Sephora luminizing drops and NARS bronzer.
