Minimalist Beauty

Behind the fashion is the beauty.

One cannot resist but notice the evolving makeup trends spotted on the runway.
The upcoming Spring-Summer 2016 season, it seems like designers are gearing towards enhancing the natural beauty of women. With the likes of Alberta Ferreti, featuring gold undertones to not only bonafide the reflection from the sun onto the skin but truly enhancing the features of a woman.

That’s not to say designers are necessarily ditching the entire concept of aesthetics, their inspiration just seeks for a more natural appeal – not something you would see on a circus.

Although the Marc by Marc Jacobs show featured a theatrical runway, backstage a game changer in the beauty department was in the works with a reversed smoky eye debut. Francois Nars, the appointed makeup guru of the night, discussed reversing the premise of the smoky eye and having the darker colour featured at the inner corners of your eyes and having the lighter – or as many call it, the base colour on the outer corner of your eye.

While we’re all going au natural this Spring, this doesn’t necessarily mean the lust of colour is absent. As seen in Diane von Furstenburg and Chanel, the “pop of colour” is very much prominent from green, pink to blue; it’s a colourful affair from the canvas to the eyes.
The trick to execute this runway trend flawlessly is to enhance one feature as a focal point, whether that be the lip or the brows, ensure to leave the rest au naturel, talk about minimal effort but maximum output.

Let’s face it whatever the occasion may be these beauty trends are manipulatable for any occasion. So ladies before you head out next season, be sure to check out these runway beauty trends for inspiration.
