2017 makeup trends

The gods of fashion week have spoken and have chosen for us, mere makeup lovers, all of the best trends set to hit our makeup bags as the weather gets warmer. The 90s nostalgia is something that we can all relate to, so what better way to celebrate the 90s than to wear it on your face.



There’s nothing more 90s than a little bit of sparkle. If you’re obsessed with glitter and everything it stands for, then your year is going to be made with this makeup trend! Runways were laced with models sporting the sparkle, on their eyes, ears, hair and lips. The likes of designers like Fendi and Gaiambra styled their models with glitter peppered under their eyes. Glitter is really breaking out of its barriers this year, so embrace the sparkle and get creative as it becomes a staple of everyday life! Cosmetic glitter is having something of a moment in the makeup spotlight and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere quickly!

2017 makeup trends dewy complexion


Dewy Complexion:

The bronzed and “just come from the beach look” has always been coveted in the warmer months. A sheeny and beautiful complexion is going to be a big makeup trend this staple, to achieve this minimal yet fabulous look, just add a light-weight, illuminating foundation to your makeup bag. This dreamy, minimalistic look gives you a real youthful Summer glow that will have people falling head over heels for you. Ellie Saab and Versace mastered this moon-kissed look at fashion week and their models looks absolutely dreamy!


Bringing back the 90s with bright eyes:

Get ready to wave all of the sweet pastel colours and romantic pinks, that we have all grown to know and love, out of the door, as we make way for a bolder and brighter future. The fashion week runways saw so many models sporting the “disco eyes” look, with a rainbow of colours that screams 90s. Our eyeshadow palettes are getting a makeover, so prepare for orange tones, purples, greens and blues!

2017 makeup trends bright lips

Bold and big lips:

The all-round favourite nude and pale lip colours are going to be a thing of the past! In this makeup shakeup, the lip colours we have placed firmly into our hearts, are being replaced with bold, gothic and metallic shades – so think ice princess meets space age (it’s going to be fabulous). So many different designers have been dressing their models in metallic clothing and pairing their outfits with dark and gothic lips, to really give a little bit of edge to their look. It’s going to catch on quickly! If you want to be envied by everyone within a ten-mile radius, then welcome these bold and deep shades into your makeup.
