Summer 2017: Makeup Trend Series


Now I’m back off holiday, finished college, and only doing a few days at work a week, I’ve decided to create a makeup series as I have quite a lot more time on my hands! In this series, I will be researching different trends from different years, era’s and influences to create different looks. For today’s trend, I went with Summer 2017. I found A LOT of inspiration from Cosmopolitan’s article the recently posted called “Spring/Summer 2017 Hair and Makeup Trends”. This article lists a number of different trends taken from Fashion Week. I took a few trends from their list a created a whole look featuring them! Hope you enjoy this series, be sure to comment what trend you would like to see next!

This trend was influenced by Fendi at Milan Fashion week. All the models on the catwalk for the SS17 catwalk wore a bold graphic liner, and a sparkly, glitter lip.


Orange Eyeshadow

Blugirl used a wash of orange eyeshadow on all her models to create this colourful, sunset eye look.

P1010848                   P1010861

I teamed this look up with a Topknot and two plaits. Topknots are in trend this summer, according to Cosmopolitan’s Article, as Christian Dior had his models sport the slick, “ballerina” hairstyle. I attempted to channel my inner Bohemian, by adding to plaits, inspired by  Missoni.
