Breathe a sigh of relief as colours are welcomed back to beauty via the catwalk. Oscar de la Renta, Jason Wu and Alice + Olivia all showcased a spectrum of washes, from one bold sweep over the eyelid, to a playful duo, or even trio of shades. Don’t be afraid to try this look at home – with spring/summer 2020’s latest make-up collections now in store it’s time to pack a punch with your palette.
A trend truly taking the spotlight, sunset shades are your new springtime smokey eye. Blend burnt orange and sunny yellow for a softly shaded lid, or go bold with a strong graphic liner. It’s all about that golden hour glow.
LILAC & MINT
Pale purple and pastel green are a match made in beauty heaven. Offset lavender and lilacs with a fresh hint of bright mint or zesty yellow, to make your purple lids pop with colour. The make-up mood for spring/summer 2020 is creative and fun, so play with unexpected colour combinations and freehanded, art-inspired application.
For spring, Pantone’s 2020 colour of the year is expected to make its way into our beauty bag — with shades of classic blue, turquoise, sapphire and indigo, all on our radar. Whether you’re creating a sharp winged cat eye or being expressive with your lip tint — Gucci’s Rouge à Lèvres lipstick blends perfectly into the eyelid — be bold when it comes to blue eye makeup.
