GUEST POST: The Best Spring 2016 Makeup Trends At A Glance
The right makeup can change a complete look and take it to the next level. With the spring 2016 collections revealed some months back, this is just the right time to actually check the runways for some makeup ideas. Runway makeup is often bright and bold, and yet, there were quite a few classic and contemporary trends that might demand attention. In this post, we will talk of these ideas and how you can use these trends with things from your makeup stash.
Red and bold: To be honest, red shades for spring aren’t something entirely new, but bold hot lip colours were a major runway attraction. Seen at some of the top shows like that of Jason Wu, Nina Ricci and Acne, this trend is all about daring for the brightest red. The colours were more of the same palette, but if you are buying new shades, it’s commendable to invest in one blue-toned and one orange-toned for the season. As for the finish, you can look for a creamy matte finish or a total glossy look, which works better for the evenings.
Blue is the new hue: From bright blue eyeliner to complete eye shadow in a pop of bright blue, this is the colour for your eyes for spring 2016. The idea might seem a bit bold for sure, but it is more of those trends that only daring women wouldn’t mind. To get this trend right, the best idea is to go for a neutral or toned down look for the rest of the face while focusing the colour use on the eyes alone. If you are looking for a few makeup products or clothes, click here, and for this trend, you can check the looks of Jonathan Saunders, Boss and Diane von Furstenberg.
Peachy pinks and oranges: Spring and pink kind of goes hand in hand, but mostly, we see pink and orange tones for the lips for that bright pop of colour. Thankfully, many top designer houses worked on using the soft toned shades of these colours for the eyes. The results were effective, with light summery looks making a major impact. Again, this is a more experimental trend, so you wouldn’t really mind investing in more blushes and eye shadow palettes this season. You can take a few look ideas from shows of Jill Stuart, Erdem, and Giamba.
It is also good to point out the extensive use of mascara for most spring 2016 shows. If you are someone who likes to rush out in the morning with little makeup, all you probably need is good mascara and eyeliner that highlights the eyes matched with right lip shade. Have a fabulous time shopping for spring makeup and start making your bucket list today!
