Trends, fads, craze, rage, styles! We are head over heels by the fashion twists the industry throws at us every year. Plaguing our wardrobes, fashion sidles into both personal and professional areas. Phones, electronics, architecture, clothing, styling, makeup, from A to Zeee, we are enveloped in the fashion spree. The runway trends for spring-summer 2016 have set the ball rolling into the boombastic & uncanny arenas.
It is all about bold lines, deep hues, shimmery eyes and innovative looks. The ideas that were earlier shackled under the tabs of taboo and too-much-to-hold-on-to are now open for exploration.
Consider these double tap worthy looks and makeup ideas before they get too stale to bail or worse, you become the last one to try them.
Dark, Moody Lips
Statement lips with minimalistic eye make-up are making it large from the past year and are here to stay. Walking from the classic red lip color, the new addition to the palate is oh-so-oxblood. The dark color looks perfect with any outfit and is a show stealer. Grab the attention with a stained ombré finish this time. This effortless makeup trick will be a tried and tested option anytime and every time.
The black eyeliner goes rogue this season as it decides to fill up the eyes at the most uncanny spaces. As easy as drawing lines, this technique traces the upper lids or the edges of a cat eye and offers a rather stand out façade in no time. An extension of negative space nails, the negative eyeliner is spunky and surreal.
Glitter tears or overgrown lashes were a big thing this season too. While Coachella saw a lot of glitter tears, adding to the gypsy feel, other events saw a lot of falsie eyelashes, which were larger than life. Stepping on the no mascara trend of the past few years, you can use chunks of it this season to add an extra oomph to your style.
Blue eye shadow
Yet another trend that is having its moment is the blue lids. Showering us with a high dosage of blue enigma, the makeup artists united at the runway with the color in their palate. If you want to nail this trend, the mantra is ‘as you like it’. Yes, you can add a little bit of it for a smoky effect or hog the limelight with bright cyan eyeliner or fill the lids, as you please.
A step ahead of the baking technique, sandbagging has caught up like a forest fire with Kim Kardashians’ makeup artist, revealing this simple yet really effective move for highlighting & saving us from the tortures of hot summer days. Using the translucent or loose powder underneath the eye and the around the bottom edges of the lips helps in keeping the makeup intact and ditch the scorching sun & the melt from it.
