BEAUTY TRENDS FOR SPRING/SUMMER 2016

torek, 02. februar 2016

It's been a reaaaally really long time since my last post, but I decided it's finally time to do a new one. You know, new year, new beginnings, with trial first month. I've also been quite active in the last week with creating a few last minute makeups for Pust (something similar to Halloween we have in Slovenia). I can make a few posts about how to recreate certain looks if anyone is interested. 

Okay, lets get into it. What makeup trends were seen for the spring/summer 2016 on the runways?


BLUE ACCENTS

Runways: Val Garland, Monique Lhulilier, Hugo Boss, Chanel, Diane von Furstenberg, Marc Jacobs, Sonia Rykiel


Blue color could be seen almost everywhere this season but in very different ways. From pastels to delicate strokes of eyeliner or full-on effect of »butterfly wings« that Path McGrath created for Diane von Furstenberg. When it comes to blue color, you can wear it any way you like, just don't try to recreate any 90's looks and pair it with strong lip color, since all looks on the catwalk kept lips pretty neutral. Great way to wear blue hues on your lids is to do your usual makeup with neutral eyeshadows or eyeliner and then put blue eyelinerit in waterline to emphasize the color of your eyes.


BOLD LIPS

Runways: Jason Wu, Givenchy, DKNY, Marchesa, Anna Sui, Oscar de la Renta, Badgley Mischka, Victoria Beckham



This year the most popular were candy apple red, berry lips and statement metallics – the more unusual colors the better. Think gold, blue, green, purple… Pair it with flushed cheeks and you're good to go.


GLITTER

Runways: Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, Naeem Khan, Giambattista Valli, Dries Van Noten


Glitters on the lids, lips, nails, everywhere! Discreet shimmer or huge chunks of glitter on the lids, glittery eyebrows and nails, you can not go wrong with anything. Maybe even use blue glittery eyeshadow and you can kill two birds with one stone (or in this case two trends with one product, please don't harm any birds).


UNEXPECTED FRENCH MANICURE

Runways: Monique Lhulilier, Tibi, Jonathan Simkhai, Cushnie et Ochs, Francesca Liberatore


This is probably my favourite trend of 2016. Forget about classic french manicure. You can still wear white tips of course, but play it up with different shapes, or use colors like oxblood, orange, green, silver…


HUGE LASHES

Runways: Louis Vuitton, Giorgio Armani, Marni, Tod's



It became rare to see models wearing mascara or false lashes on the runways, but now it's making a comeback in various looks: blue, red, futuristic falsies, thick and long…


PEACHY & PINK LIDS

Runways: Altuzarra, Lanvin, Erdem, Giamba, Jill Stuart


Peachy and pink colors look pretty and give softness to your face. This trend is also already called "the sunset eye". Dior's Peter Phillips described this look as »pure and sensual« and said that »pink is the molst flattering on all the girls«.


GRAPHIC EYELINER

Runways: Fendi, Mugler, Vionnet, Julien David, Monique Lhulilier, Jeremy Scott


This is not how we're usually used to wearing eyeliner in traditional cat eye look. It's all about exaggerated shapes and graphic flicks. You can go bold or very subtle.


GLOSSY TREND

Runways: Opening Ceremony, Marc Jacobs, Narciso Rodriguez, Marchesa, Proenza Schouler



Glossy trend or as  already known term »gym skin« is the new no-makeup makeup. It mimics the shine you have after a workout or after dancing all night. It's basically just a new term for flawless glowing dewy skin. On the runways, makeup artists achieved this look with dabbing Vaseline on top of the cheekbones, above upper lip, under eye area and on the lids. It looks pretty on runway and pictures, but it wouldn't last long on the skin in real life, and besides who wants to look like they just ran 10 km when doing errands or going on a date?


HAIR ACCESSORIES

Runways: Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger, Anna Sui, Miu Miu



Headbans, tiaras, scraps of fabric can be used on punky updos and low ponylails. Your hair doesen't need to be perfect, ornate combs and other hair accessories look perfect in messy hair.


 BRAIDS, TWISTS AND UPGRADED PONYTAILS

Runways: Proenza Schouler, Oscar de la Renta, Dior, Alexander McQueen, Kenzo



Undone braids and messy ponytails are nothing new to the runways, except for the sleek two-strand plaits, whichis very easy to do and looks beautiful.


FLUSHED CHEEKS

Runways: Vivienne Tam, Narciso Rodriguez, Alexander McQueen, Simone Rocha, Philosophy


Year 2015 was all about contouring, but this year blush is having a comeback for a more natural and fresh look. It also helps contouring look softer, more flattering, and believable.



Stay tuned for for more new posts, which will hopefully be posted each week and not in another 7 months :)


Love, Lucija
