1. BOLD AND BRIGHT
It wouldn’t be spring without some seriously bright colours on show. Highly pigmented pastels, orange, pink, turquoise, green and yellow ran the show on designer’s runways in several artistic creations. No matter how you adapt it to your everyday look, there’s no doubt that the electro feel was real. The bolder and more eye-popping, the better!
2. GLITTER, GLITTER, GLITTER
Beam away! From subtle shimmer to stick-on gems and jewels, 2018’s biggest beauty trend is all about sparkles. Eyes on the runway were filled with full-blown glittery faces and lips, smudged shimmery eye corners, colourful starry eyeliners, bejeweled eyebrows and 90’s influenced chunky glitter eyelids with neutral undertones. Twinkle, twinkle little star.
3. FLOATING LINERS
Speaking of stars: 2018’s liners are all about new edges and angles. Updated takes on the cat-eye were seen across the board, with everything from petrol-blue graphic silhouettes to pitch black negative-space eyes. Whether you’re going for innovative feline flicks or expressive shapes, explorative eyeliners are definitely worth a try.
4. SHADES OF RED
Summer comes with strawberries, and not only for dessert. Red-hot hues ranging from fuchsia to cherry tones flourished on lips at spring/summer shows, as well as rusty and pink eyes paired with glowy natural skin or bold liners. For a more sophisticated look, start easy with subtler shades like cranberry or terra cotta. For lips, try a high shine lollipop lip-gloss or a dab of a bright lip stain. Oh, and make sure to prime your pout accordingly before going red-hot.
5. NATURAL SKIN
It’s all about that that base! There’s no denying that skin is in, with radiant complexions being a key player during fashion weeks across the globe. The main look was a sporty, fresh face with focus on enhancing each individual skin. Prep with a primer and a touch of concealer for a flawless base, and play with different highlighters to create that glossy illuminating look.
