The Spring/Summer 2017 ready-to-wear shows have finally wrapped up, and while the fashion was certainly memorable, it was the beauty that had us hooked. Here are the key trends to take away for the upcoming season.
An eye on the 80s
The 80s saw a huge revival in New York, London, Milan and Paris, with multiple designers adopting the ‘draping’ technique of applying bold blusher all the way up to the temples.
But the most daring trend stolen from the decade came in the form of bright eyeshadows, often matched up to an equally vibrant lip color. Nowhere was this more visible than at Kenzo, which teamed statement red lipstick with a theatrical scarlet eyeshadow for serious impact.
Paule Ka also matched cherry-stained lips to the eyes for a tropical look, while Louis Vuitton and Cividini left out the lip but made a statement with deep blue and red winged shadow respectively brushed out towards the hairline.
The matte, clean, ‘wake-up-and-go’ aesthetic remained popular for Spring/Summer 2017, particularly in New York, but multiple designers updated the conservative look with a hint of gloss.
High shine made for a simple but striking statement at Christopher Kane in London, and at Oday Shakar and Nicholas K in New York, which took strobing and highlighting as the basis for a wet-look makeup concept that fit in perfectly with their urban brand identities. Hood by Air showed that the trend is still on point for hair, too.
Finally, it was all about the lips, which were bold, fun and often disco-themed. Fendi got the ball rolling when it covered the models’ pouts in full-on glitter lipstick — a look that was later seen at Maison Margiela.
Acne debuted a holographic lip that shimmered between violet, blue and silver tones, while Fenty x Puma also opted for a little iridescent beige-pink action. Atsushi Nakashima took a surrealist approach, painting misplaced lips onto the models’ faces for an abstract look.
