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 Glitter
A little bit psychedelic, a little bit techno – this is glitter with attitude. Forget the traditional placement of a sprinkle over the eyelid – this time, it’s technical, considered and quirky. Draw lines with it, highlight with it … think where you wouldn’t usually use glitter, and apply it there.
