A new season means new beauty – but what are the trends t know now? Whilst clean skin and wash-and-go hair were present across the board throughout the year. The stand-out looks were brighter and bolder than ever. An abundance of glitter from Fendi to DKNY gave the shows a welcome shimmer, whilst flashes of Eighties inspiration had a more-is-more charm that came into its element in the final days of Paris Fashion Week. And as for hair? Look to Guido Palau, who was responsible for some of the most dramatic transformations of the season. See below for the ultimate beauty trends and talking points for 2017 below.
Black Liner Redux
It may have taken you months to perfect, but consider leaving your black cat-eye liner behind. Now go-to liner look is all about black pencil liner traced along your inner waterlines. Yes, it’s basically the look you wore all throughout middle school—but this time you have the edge to actually pull it off.
Get your blush brushes ready—you’re going to need them in a big way now. Whether applied with a heavy-hand and a nod to disco (like at Kenzo’s spring show) or subtly blended from cheek to temple blush, it is meant to be seen. Leave subtlety at the door.
The “no makeup” look isn’t exactly new backstage, but there’s no denying it’s having a moment all over again. With Kim Kardashian-West wearing no make-up at all on the Balenciaga front row and Alicia Keys continuing her decision to scrap cosmetics altogether, the bare-faced look was on full display both on and off the catwalk. At Isabel Marant, Michael Kors and Proenza Schouler make-up were used only to cover marks or blemishes, and only the subtlest tweaks were made at Marni, Band of Outsiders, Antonio Berardi, and Vera Wang.
We’re always fans of simple, foolproof trends that still feel fresh — and look good on everyone. And with all due respect to the badass bobs that we saw during New York Fashion Week, there’s another look that we all already know and love that’s popping up across the pond. Enter: The low, imperfect, and loosely swept back ponytail.
Yes, yes, I know: Ponytails aren’t new — but this isn’t the pony from the past few seasons. In fact, it’s this rendition’s placement and lack of precision that’s making a splash in London town right now. Whether attendees and taste makers are rocking their naturally curly textures, or leaving their blow dried bangs out, it looks like low ponies are the next boss buns. That is: chic, sleek, and wonderfully practical.
These are some of the trends, as we all know, how updated we must keep our selves to be in the trend. Keep following and be updated.
