New Year calls for new trends and while you might still be rocking the Fall/Winter Makeup trends from last year, here is a sneak peek into the upcoming makeup trends for Spring 2017 straight from the NYFW runway – along with tips and product recommendations on how to recreate them without breaking the bank:
60s Inspired Statement Eyes & Lips
Go bold on both eyes and lips – preferably using the same color.
Dab theBalm Nude’tude Nude Eyeshadow Palette in Sexy on the eyes for a wine stain and top it off with Lipstick Queen Belle Epoque Tinted Balm Belle Wine for a smudged, glossy look. Highlight the inner corners of the eyes using the theBalm theManizer Sisters Luminizers Palette and define brows and eye lashes with products like smashbox – Indecent Exposure Mascara Deep Black and bareMinerals Frame & Define Brow Styler Dark.
For lips, opt for a stained effect using Lipstick Queen Seven Deadly Sins Lip Gloss – Vanity and/or Lipstick Queen Saint and Sinner Lip Tint Wine.
Soft Feminine Look
Use soft shades of pink and orange gold’s to give the entire face a subtle flush while keeping definition reserved for the brows.
To get this look, use a blend of bareMinerals Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick Collection Nudist or Honeybun and Smashbox L.A. Lights Blendable Lip and Cheek Color Fairfax Fuchsia on the cheeks, True Isaac Mizrahi – Finishing Brow Gel for the brows and a mix of TRUE Isaac Mizrahi Eye Shadow & Liner Powder Southampton Orange, bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 2.0 The Inspiration and Butter London On The Glow Pen Rose Gold on the eye lids.
This runway look focused entirely on the lips with them being branded “jewelry for your face”. Keep the face makeup minimal, fresh and dewy and use a bold lip color like butter LONDON – Plush Rush Lipstick – Provocative or Lipstick Queen – Velvet Rope Lipstick Entourage with a slight pat of butter LONDON – On The Glow Pen Gold on the cupid’s bow.
Sculpted Cheeks and Overdrawn Lips
Inspired by Aunty Entity of Mad Max, this makeup look entails going heavy on contouring, both on the cheeks and the lips. Use smashbox – Step-By-Step Contour Stick Trio and Butter London Blushclutch Customizable Palette Simply Sweet to create bronzed, sculpted cheekbones with a hint of sparkle. Overdraw and fill lips with nude products like bareMinerals GEN NUDE Under Over Lip Liner Freestyle and bareMinerals – GEN NUDE Radiant Lipstick Nudist.
Mediterranean Sea Inspired Eyes
A must try trend for the spring and summer seasons, this look is simple yet very vogue. Simply line your eyes with bright and bold turquoise eyeliner like Butter London Wink Eye Pencil – Holland Park and you are good to go! Remember to keep the rest of the face neutral to keep the entire focus on the eyes.
No, it’s not as icky as it sounds. It’s actually quite a beautiful, glamorous look.
To achieve this fresh, dewy look, simply buff in a highlighter like BECCA Cosmetics – Shimmering Skin Perfector – Pearl with your dewy finish foundation. Rim the eye lids with Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner Raven and smudge it slightly outwards for a slight undone look. Finish off with generous coats of bareMinerals – Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara Black.
While this may not be an ideal day to day look, this fun trend is still definitely one of the more wearable ones from the NYFW runways. Simply swipe shadows in blue and green like BABOR AGE ID Eye Shadow Pencil 03 Green, BABOR AGE ID Eye Contour Pencil 03 Pacific Green, BABOR – Super Soft Eye Shadow Duo 16 Dark Blue or BABOR AGE ID Eye Shadow Pencil 04 Blue thickly across the lids. Keep the rest of the makeup bare minimum and luminescent.
With absolutely no colors in this look, this makeup look is the ultimate definition of spring – clean, fresh and pure. Create a face base with smashbox – Photo Finish Foundation Primer Hydrating, Pixi Glow Mist, Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Color Correcting Blend and bareMinerals – Deluxe Mineral Veil Finishing Powder. Use Pixi Eye Bright Kit on the eyes, smashbox – Brow Tech To Go Brunette for the brows and Smashbox Halo Highlighting Wand Gold as your highlighter. Finish off with a beautiful, glowing lip product like PETER THOMAS ROTH – Pink Bombshell Lip Balm .
Imperfect Statement Eye
While this look keeps a heavy focus on the eyes, the way it’s slightly undone makes it look effortless and wearable on a daily basis. Unlike those perfect Instagram makeup’s, this look uses a gel eye liner like Youngblood – Incredible Wear Gel Liner mixed with a little foundation and patted all over the lid using fingertips only. Layer it with a moss green shadow like BABOR AGE ID Eye Shadow Pencil 03 Green and finish off with bareMinerals – Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara Black. Brush the brows upwards using a product like smashbox – Brow Tech To Go Brunette and a clear lip gloss like Smashbox O-Gloss Intuitive Lip Gloss on both the brows and the lips.
Sun-Kissed – Matte and Bronzed
Electric Velvet Lips
Two of our favorite trends in one – Electric colors and velvet finishes! Hop on to this trend by using bright, electric lipsticks like BABOR Maxi Definition Lip Liner in Beach Orange, Smashbox Be Legendary Matte Lipstick Fireball and Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Pencil – Genre in velvet textures. Or use Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer to change any creamy lipstick into a velvety matte in seconds!
Yet another fun spring/summer trend that keeps the focus on lips and keeps them bright. The trend calls on for two different yet similar shades of lipstick on the upper and the lower lid. If you are not up for this trendy look, simply stick to the good old Miami look with bright colors like theBalm – Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long-Lasting Liquid Lipstick Sentimental, smashbox – Always Sharp Lip Liner Fuchsia and butter LONDON – Plush Rush Lip Gloss – In Love.
80s Vibe – Sun-Kissed and Natural
Yet another bare minimal look, this 80s vibe makeup trend calls on for a sheer finish, dewy foundation like bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 paired with a subtle blush like theBalm – Fratboy Shadow/Blush and lipstick like Lipstick Queen Sinner Lipstick – Pinky Nude or Butter London Lippy Moisture Matte Lipstick – Abbey Rose. For eyes, apply butter LONDON – On The Glow Pen Moonstone all over the lid and smudge brown eyeliner like bareMinerals – Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliner – Lasting Brown close to the lashes. Brush brows in upward, undone strokes.
80s Feminist Pioneers Look
Flaunted by models of Prabal Gurung at NYFW, this makeup look sported minimal foundation and lightly filled brows with heavy kohl-lined eyes.
To get this look, use bareMinerals – bareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer and bareMinerals – Deluxe Mineral Veil Finishing Powder to even out imperfections. Line the eyes all the way around and in the waterline with bareMinerals – Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliner – Absolute Black with a tiny outward stroke at the outer corners. Fill the brows with a clear gel and brush bareMinerals – Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara Black over lashes. For a subtle flush, use a Nude lipstick as a blush and apply PETER THOMAS ROTH – Pink Bombshell Lip Balm on the lips.
