Top 10 Beauty Tips
Trend: bold red lips
For the Alexander McQueen show, the dramatic red lipstick was enhanced not only by a satin finish but because the rest of the make-up was completely pared back.
Trend: gold accents
Touches of gold leaf were scattered across the brow bone of the models at Akris, adding a textured edge to their kohl-rimmed eyes and naturally-flushed skin.
Trend: just been kissed
With their soft pink lips and matching swash of blush on their cheeks, the Balmain models looked like they’d just been kissed before heading onto the runway.
The Chloe woman provided a lesson in how a simple application of eyeliner is a quick fire way to look like you mean business. Use a black kohl pencil to rim the inner part of your lash lines and pair with natural-looking skin.
A healthy, natural glow was the focus at Isabel Marant, where a touch of bronzer defined the cheekbones and a smoky brown eye-shadow, alongside bold brows, lifted the eyes. As a finishing touch, the natural lipstick colour worn by each of the models was chosen to give their skin tone a subtle boost.
Trend: silver accents
Going one step further from traditional tear duct highlighting, the make-up at Tommy Hilfiger involved a touch of silver eye-shadow placed in the inner corners of the models’ eyes, creating an “aerodynamicshaped look similar to the chrome on a race car,” explained lead make-up artist Mark Carrasquillo.
Trend: polished skin
The make-up at Dolce & Gabbana was used to complement the collection’s ‘Fashion Devotion’ theme, which was based on how millennials are leading fashion. That translates as fresh and polished complexions, eyes defined by graphic eyeliner, brown eye-shadow and perfectly plump lips.
Trend: dark red lipstick
The models’ lips were bold, matte and a deep red at Rochas. For perfect precision, make sure to pre-line your whole pout with a lip liner that matches your chosen lipstick.
Trend: colourful lashes
If the resurgent trend for coloured eyeliner isn’t bold enough for you, try copying the pigmented lashes (in orange, purple, blue or pink) at Dries Van Noten. You can achieve the look either with coloured mascaras or by rubbing eye-shadow into your lashes and combing it through with a spoolie.
“The inspiration behind the collection was urban hiking, so we focused the look around a natural, wind-flushed cheek,” revealed head make-up artist Zoe Taylor at the House of Holland show. “Products were layered carefully to create the perfect tone – caramel across the cheek with a terracotta stain high in the centre.”
