The buzz of London Fashion Week is finally ending and we've rounded up some of the most wearable beauty trends that you can try now.
As much as we loved the modern tiaras at PPQ, we can't imagine it's something we're going to be wearing to work anytime soon.
With the help of celebrity make-up artist Selen Hurer and 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE™ we round up the SS’15 runway make-up trends and share how to transform them into every day wearable styles.
“Catwalk make-up inspires impactful everyday beauty with an edge. SS’15 saw the rise of edgy neutral eye make-up – with natural hues like sienna, chestnut, copper or bronze designed to enhance your eye colour. An easy look to master, simply apply shadow directly on to the eyelid and bring it up to the brow. Be bold and add another layer if you dare, so the pigments really sing,” says Hurer.
For a sweep of colour, pink/purple shading was another big trend. Hurer says: “Use a subtle pink-purple to bring out the gold tones in green or hazel eyes, a bright plum to create contrast for dark eyes or try a purple with bronze undertones for blue eyes. Apply sparingly – a sheer wash of colour to draw attention to the eyes.”
Finally, standalone black eyeliner made a runway comeback; “Worn in isolation, eyeliner makes a big statement – be it smoky, flicked or displaced. To really frame eyes go for a winged, bold eye liner paired with barely there bronzer and tone down lips, to let your eyes do the talking.
“A dark liner really creates contrast against the white of your eye and your actual eye colour. Try a gel-based liner with a fine brush rather than a liquid liner pen as it allows you more control and doesn’t irritate. If you haven’t yet heard about the new eye enhancement contact lenses, 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE™, you’ll see they have a similar effect of providing a nice clean edge around the iris, providing definition, depth and dimension to the eye.” Hurer concludes, “Eyes are considered by many to be their best feature and experimenting with these three SS’15 trends will accentuate and enhance eyes further.”
