Since it’s the season of sun, it’s only natural that the sun-kissed looks worthy of J. Lo make it onto the runways. Even if you’re not actually tanned – because sun exposure causes premature ageing (thanks, but no thanks) – fake it ’till you make it with bronzer and more bronzer. From under your cheekbones, to around your hairline and even the T-zone, warm yourself up and throw in some freckles to make it more believable.
Nothing says “no-nonsense girl boss” more than this sophisticated hairdo. Plus, it keeps your hair out of your face. Top it off with the classic, bold red lip and you’re good to go conquer the world.
We mean… bangs are bangs are bangs, right? This one from Acne isn’t your run-of-the-mill type of bangs. It’s much more jagged, much more uneven but also much more interesting.
Those who love highlighting probably love glowing to the gods. You probably already highlight your cheekbones, cupid’s bow and the tip of your nose, so just add the forehead to the mix.
A good cat-eye flick does a lot when it comes to making you look more awake by making your eyes seem wider. A coloured one does the same, but with an element of fun to it. Plus, it’s great for days where you want to skip on blending eyeshadows.
Pulling off this look isn’t rocket science. All you’ve really got to do is fill in eyeliner on the top lash line for one eye and on the bottom lash line for the other.
If you’re feeling adventurous, experiment with different colour pairings.
What’s under most of our eyes? Eyebags that we cover up with a concealer, of course. This one’s a glammed-up version that covers up those pesky bags with bling-ed out powder.
Spotted on Jeremy Scott’s runway: big pastel wigs and bold show makeup that were reminiscent of beauty trends back in the ’80s. With black liner drawn on the outer corners of both the upper and lower lash line a la punk style, neon eyeshadows gave a pop of colours to the inner corners of the eyes.
Bigger hair is better hair. For a more wearable, everyday take on this hair look, simply rock a high ponytail, tease the hair downwards with a comb, go hardcore on hairspray and volumising sprays and voila.
Since her collection revolves around being layered and light, it’s no surprise that the makeup looks were born of that train of thought too. This pink-and-white look by Pat McGrath that pairs perfectly well with the pink-and-white garms is to die for. We adore the ethereal touches of white liner – that was shaped like wings – coupled with star-embellished bottom lashes.
Exaggerated matte, black wings have got to be the ultimate cool girl punk statement. Let your eyes be the centre of attention when you wear your liner up to where your eyeshadow would usually be.
We just had to save the best for the last because this look that’s on model Ariel Nicholson for Tomo Koizumi has got to be one for the books. And it’s no surprise that the mother of makeup Pat McGrath was the brains behind this sparkly glam-rock look – using the Mothership Midnight Sun palette from her eponymous makeup line – while Redken’s Global Creative Director Guido Palau was that of the insane sculptural hair.
