You know I’m not the kind of girl that would make post about red lips being a trend (hint, last beauty post) but according to the fashion world, literally any shade of red lipstick is going to be acceptable next spring. From soft cherry to blood red and all the way to velvety burgundy or even brown; it’s almost impossible to not find a color that’s good on you. The only common ground? Thanks to the beauty gods, they are all matte.
It’s usually hard to spot new makeup trends on fashion weeks; or deceptively easy, like, surprise surprise red lips are trendy this summer. So I usually have to look into details to come up with something to write about, unlike hair, makeup is tricky with very little wiggle room. However something came to the fore unmistakably and it would be foolish to ignore it; colorful eye shadow is the new black (liner) this upcoming spring/summer season and it’s hard on a girl who only wears eyeliner as an element of makeup. While Jill Stuart, Ohne Titel, Jenny Packham and Diane Von Furstenberg opted for brighter hues like baby blue or pastel pink; Rodarte, Givenchy, Derek Lam and Altuzarra chose more neutral, peachy shades, making it possible for even girls like me to give it a go.
Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2015 Now this is not a beauty trend I’m going to encourage you to include in your daily makeup routine or even for night time, but it obviously is a trend for fall 2015 and at least it’s an amazing excuse for your ruined eyeliner looks. Let it be a brushstroke at haphazard, upward facing liner, mirror eyelashes on your eyelids, harry potter streaks of lightning around your eyes or even the look you get when you scratch your eye out whilst wearing eyeshadow; the lines on/around/under your eyes should be out of line this fall. Intentionally.
Just Cavalli Fall 2015 Or you can also be a taupe eyed girl or an orange eyed girl but blue or black seems out of picture for fall 2015 season. The tone and the amount of brown is the tricky part that makes this runway trend hard to apply IRL, personally I’d look totally washed out with a brown eye makeup but there’s no denying that it’ll be a huge beauty trend this fall. My personal favorite is Derek Lam’s subtle cateye eyeshadow or Altuzarra’s part grey part bronze look.
If there is one thing I’ve learned in my years of struggling with hair in general is that the easiest, EASIEST hair style is a loop ponytail. Not a regular pony, not twist updos, nothing that requires bobby pins or styling products. For the perfect loop ponytail all you need is an elastic hair tie, hair longer than 10inches and inspiration from fall 2015 runway shows, starting with Victoria Beckham.
