This season’s beauty looks are some of the freshest we’ve seen in a while. A delightful juxtaposition of propositions; graphic lines merge with subtle stains, dark toned lips mix with ethereal glitters, eyeliner gets a real girl re-work, and skin is fresh and sublime.
At the shows, make-up artists more than answered the call to create – their skill showcased via the interplay between precise technique and undone individuality. Which will you choose? Whichever you like – just harness your creativity and experiment … You’re in control, and it’s time to play!
THE NEW COLOUR
Hands up who’s afraid of wearing brights? Well, it’s time to bite the bullet, throw away the nude palettes, and venture into vivid. We’re not saying to go totally Technicolor, but there’s something about adding a single bright tone in a considered fashion that looks more like art than make-up, and therefore it works. Creativity is in play this season – embrace the rainbow tones. Heaven knows, you might love it.
There’s been a lack of colour in make-up the last few seasons, so it’s refreshing to see a pop of colour on the eyes, instead of the lips.
Below, watch makeup artist Ailbhe Lynch create a simple two-step colour look in the fourth of our AW16 trend videos and pick up the August issue of IMAGE to see the full season trends.
