Sorry to talk about Autumn/Winter before we have dipped our toe fully in Summer but here is your heads-up on what’s what for makeup courtesy of the MAC trend report.
The trends sit under two umbrellas of Strict and Loose.
The Strict group
Makeup is an accessory to the face. Accents of glitter and rainbow liners. Embellishing the facial features whilst keeping the skin fresh and plumped.
This trend has an emphasis on the lips. Dark cherry lips with a vinyl finish. Precision is key so dig out your lip liners and give them a good sharpen.
|Max Mara Milan|
Hyper real, satin finish skin and a played down eye. Blusher is barely there whilst the brows are soft and fluffy but still tamed.
|Gareth Pugh London|
|Proenza Schouler New York|
Tough extreme black eyes in a modern punk style.
Using liner to create unique shapes. Let your artistic flare go wild and step away from the normal liner looks.
Skin is flawless and fresh with a pop of colour to give a pinched cheek effect. The lips are stained with a rose-bud tint.
|Ryan Lo London|
Psychedelic quirkiness with splashes of embellishment.
|Charlotte Olympia London|
Get creative with glitter and work outside the natural boundaries of the eyes.
|Fausto Puglisi Milan|
Use vibrant mattes teamed with neutral satins for interesting textures.
|Thom Browne New York|
The Loose group is up on Monday.
