The Best Spring 2016 Makeup Trends Worth Stealing
Makeup and fashion are kind of loving sisters, and one cannot have enough of the other. While most fashionistas follow the runway fashion trends, they don’t always take a close glimpse at the makeup ideas. Spring 2016 fashion weeks concluded last year, and this is just the apt time to check for new makeup trends, inspired from the runway looks. Here are the top picks at a glance!
The love for candy red: The very apple-inspired candy red was one of the top shades in lip colours for spring 2016, mostly in matte finishes. Seen at the collections of Jason Wu, DKNY and Acne, the matte colours were almost identical or a shade away from each other. Then there were also a few shimmer inspired looks in the same shade family, as seen at Nina Ricci. If you are wearing a bright shade as this one, you need to town down the rest of the eye makeup to keep things minimal.
Hypnotic Blue eyes: Blue makeup for the eyes was also one of the major trends of spring shows, and it worked big time in creating a bolder look. You can use this idea for any kind of summer look, just to add a pop of colour to the overall makeup. Again, this is a very standout trend, so the rest of the skin makeup should be limited to limited hues. Add a sporty top, a cool pair of shorts and a shrug to use this idea in a better way. Most big brands have blue eyeliner and kohl pencils, and for some sporty outfits, you can click here. For a few makeup looks for this trend, you can check Jonathan Saunders, Diane von Furstenberg and Nanette Lepore.
Bold mascara: If you thought mascara has been out of the backstage, think again! Mascara has returned big time on the runways, and the looks are all about going over the top. Look for mascaras that offer both length and volume, and if you don’t have natural eyelashes that can just look right with a few coats, go for false lashes. Some of the top shows, including that of Louis Vuitton, Giorgio Armani, and Tod’s worked with the idea. Apart from black looks, there was also extensive use of blue mascara, which is worth a check too.
Bonus trend: A lot of the summer spring runway looks was about using soft sunset colours, including peaches, pinks and all the shades in between. The idea was not just limited for lip shades, but also for the eyes. Look for peach lip colours that don’t wash out your face, but if that’s not an option, you can always go for a soft sunset look for the eyes.
Stay stylish, until we meet next time!
