TRENDS

Herworld (Singapore) - - BEAUTY -

Bright, bold makeup reigned supreme on the Fall 2016 run­ways; we’re talk­ing coloured mas­cara or su­per-vi­brant eye­lin­ers and eye­shad­ows paired with an equally in­tense lip colour. We think of it as a mod­ern, so­phis­ti­cated re­boot of the crazy, out-there makeup worn by the style icons of the ’80s, such as Madonna and Cyndi Lau­per. As makeup artist Larry Yeo puts it, the bright­ness of these colour­ful looks “pays homage to the anti-con­ser­va­tive women of the 1980s”.

Sure, it’s not an ev­ery­day look, but it’s great makeup in­spo for times when you want to swop your nude eye­shad­ows and lip­pies for pops of colour. But how to nail this trend with­out look­ing tacky?

Larry gives us the all-im­por­tant ad­vice: “On the eyes, any tex­ture works, but I’d rec­om­mend a matte nish. If you feel that it’s too strong a look for you, try a softer nish to ease into the colour. For the lips, opt for a bright and creamy hue. Make sure that your com­plex­ion looks pol­ished and nat­u­ral (read: no OTT con­tour­ing!), and keep your eye makeup dened (we say go for sharp cat-eye icks or graphic lines) to achieve a mod­ern look.”

As for your tresses, Larry sug­gests go­ing for ef­fort­less-look­ing beachy waves – more model off-duty, less tai tai. Fin­ish off the look with fun pop art-in­spired ac­ces­sories such as ear­rings, bracelets and rings.

Mod­els at the Lib­er­tine Fall 2016 show sported nail art with pop-art el­e­ments, but for a more wear­able look, switch them out for fun rings and bracelets.
