Makeup Artist Raine Tauber tells us what she predicts we will be seeing more of this SPRING/SUMMER:
When it comes to Spring Summer makeup, we’re seeing real skin, not too much glow and powder is used strategically to ensure there is no unwanted shine. There’s an element of the rawness where imperfections shine through adding to the reality of skin this season. This means using foundation sparingly or sometimes just a bit of concealer to cover up here and there.
These pops can occur on eyes, lips and cheeks this season, there’s a frivolity to makeup and it’s about beauty essential techniques but done in brights. Think fluoro liner, bright punchy lips and blush. Pick your favorite shades and wear them all.
Black is present in every season, usually in the form of the liner. That is still the case this season but the liner is straighter and bigger than usual. We’ll also be incorporating elements of interest to the liner so sometimes its adding mascara to give a messy, grungy look around the eye and sometimes its metallic elements.
Gloss all over
Gloss is major this season, eyes lips, cheeks, you name and we glossed it. Think humid, sexy & sweaty. Gloss can be added over colour or black on the eyes to giver textural nuance to a smokey eye. Humid highlights on the cheek evoke memories of dancing all night.
We are also seeing loads of glitter, crystals and sequins. It’s a season of embellishment but set against a raw skin it remains modern, fresh and don’t forget fun. Think halcyon nights and psychedelic dreams, its all a blur of sparkle, reflection and glamour. We’d be remiss not to notice the pop culture influence of the show Euphoria and the amazing looks Donnie Davy created for it.
Wellness trends are so powerful. They bring light to the countless ways that we can look after ourselves. From Crossfit to Kundalini, when different trends rise, sometimes hopping on board can be a great way for you to find something that works really well for you.
We love a good birds eye view on fashion and who better to ask than former fashion editor of Marie Claire, Danielle Viljoen. Her view on what we have seen this year thus far, besides the lounge wear brought on my COVID19 as April unfolded.
