The Catwalks have spoken and the trends has been set for Spring/Summer 2018.  Not everything will transpire for our everyday beauty regime but key elements of using the right accents of colours of the season will compliment your wardrobe.  Nonetheless, don’t be shy to put your own stamp on your style and switch-it-up with these handy hints and ideas that will create a ‘coloursplotion’ from within.


The prominent precise lip-lines has been softened to a blurrier edge and a more worn effect.  This was emanated by Missioni who had a slight smear of a Strawberry lip colour as opposed to Vivienne Westwood who played up to the extreme dramatisation and smeared ‘Scarlet Red’ lipstick out towards the cheeks and chin area in true VW style.  The shimmery Pinks and Pilar Box Red are truly colours of the season and will be played out for some months to come.


We spoke of the ‘Graphic Eye’ that was débuted at the NYFW runways of colour blocking of bold streaks.  Highlighted in the Oscar de La Renta Show the main attraction was rainbow stripes using multiple shades whilst Calvin Klein opted for Silver-shimmer star dust on the under-eye area.  Which also trended heavily with smokey under-eye or under eyeliner.

LFW did their own take on the abstract eye by going totally opposite to create soft smeared Jewel tones around the eyes. 

Paris went for the flamboyant bejewelled lips and eyes as showcased by Dries Van Noten as ‘Crystal does, Crystal did!’

Nevertheless, if crystal lip and eye accents are too expensive and not within budget just cheat and use white, silver shimmer eyeshadows with holographic designs to create the ‘Inter-Galactic Chic’ look as seen at the Manish Avora show.


There was hardly a contour in sight and instead many shows were opting for traditional blush to the apples of the cheeks as seen in Valentino whilst Pinks and Reds headlined at Chanel.
