AW17 Fashion Week Makeup Trend

AW17 Fashion Week Makeup Trend: One makeup trend to stand out from the LFW AW17 shows is a surprising one. A simple line or smudge can say a lot particularly if it’s a dark kohl one – see David Koma and Mulberry  – or a bolt of red as observed at Paula Knorr and Versus where eye stripes were positively Adam Ant-esque. At Mary Katrantzou, make-up artist Lynsey Alexander keyed simple dabs of lemon above and below the eye like the brushstrokes of a Van Gogh sunflower painting. Brows by contrast were blotted out to add an otherworldly dimension to the final look.

At Mulberry, makeup was playful and exotic thanks to the legendary Inge Grognard who contrasted porcelain complexions with painted up eyes. Models looked like rare tropical birds with eyes naively circled in bright green, autumnal brown and rich mulberry of course . At Phoebe English, Grognard actually applied this same idea to lips:  they were smudged indigo as if the models had bitten into a biro.

MARY KATRANTZOU SHERBET CITRON EYES

 

JW Anderson pushed his structural high luxe collection out with elegant simplicity – models were bare faced with hair pulled back hair in simple side ponies. This deceptively easy look was all down to the masterwork of Mark Carrasquillo, who laid it on thick with the oil free moisturiser and Nars Soft Matter Complete Concealer for perfect uniformity.  Eyes by contrast were highlighted with just the teeny tiniest amount of gold shadow.

The prize for most elegant eye makeup surely goes to Lucy Bridge who conceived perfectly formed glitter arches just above the lid at Sadie Williams. Some were sparkly granite others starry silver – the overall look was girly and mischievous.

The best part of this trend though? It’s all so easy to emulate. Try your hand at drawing some fine lines of your own.
