We’re in the thick of Spring/Summer 2017 fashion weeks — the crucial period where the sartorial gods that be deem what governs the wardrobe of the fashion-conscious for next year’s sweatier weather. At the moment, we’ve seen velvet, terry cloth robes, souvenir jackets (sukajan) and hoodies take centre stage, marking SS17 as a hot (literally and figuratively) season.
Aside from style, fashion week sets the pace for what’s to be big in beauty. Wearing Snapchat filters and pressed flower petals à la Desigual and Preen may not be the most practical, but the other SS17 beauty trends are veering towards wearability instead of screaming avant-garde fashun.
Here are the trends set to dominate the beauty market next year:
Seen at: Yeezy, Marchesa, Rodarte, JW Anderson and more.
The emergence of the oxymoronic “no-makeup makeup look” took over many runways this season. Skin was kept fresh and dewy, with a hint of blush, bronzer and little else. This trend spells great news for mornings when you’re rushing to work.
Seen at: Anna Sui, Tadashi Shoji, and Pamella Roland
If you’re not particularly skilled with eyeshadows, embrace these ’60s-inspired eye looks. All you need is red, burgundy, or soft pink eyeshadow smoked all over your lids and lower lashline, and you’re good to go.
Seen at: Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors, Narcisco Rodriguez and more.
Instagram’s “fleeky” brows saw no place on the fashion week runways. Makeup artists embraced the natural length of the models’ brows, flaring them upwards with brow gel to thicken and add depth to the face.
