Colour Blocking

The Future is Bright Colours

The tenure of no-makeup makeup is officially in the past: This Spring, it’s bright red lips, electric toned eyes, glitter and false lashes, and colour, colour, colour.

Across the board, mascara has been hiding behind the scenes for the last several seasons. Spring 2016 Mary Katrantzou and Tod’s show cyan lashes, bare skin and nude lips as a shot of fresh air. Marni and Louis Vuitton, on the other hand, chose falsies!


Inspired by Fendi and Mugler, put your standard black eyeliner and traditional eye make-up to work this season, with inspired, graphic shapes for a fresh, unique look.


Non-neutral tones were major, and if you are on trend you will see you can wear them any way you want. Spring into line with Missoni, Boss, Chanel, Jonathan Saunders Diane von Furstenberg, Nanette Leporem Marc Jacobs, 3.1 Philip Lim.


Cosmetic pinks and peaches are generally reserved for lips, but springis seeing them on the lids, for a soft, pretty vibe, adding an accent of surprise. Altuzarra and Erdem showed soft orange shadows that were earthy and southern in feel.
