Milan Fashion Week – Spring/Summer 2018 beauty trends

Hello mesmerising eyes...

Punchy eye-makeup as we saw from New York to London has translated to the runways in Milan.  It’s safe to say that spring/summer is all about expressing yourself – plenty of colour, silver eyeliner, smokey eyes and dreamy glowing highlighed skin.  We are not playing it safe this year…. let your creative side go wild!

Inner-corner highlighting:

This is a trend that you will want to do on your own on a daily basis.  It opens the eyes up and wakes them up!! Silver was used a lot on catwalk however you could opt for something more subtle like a champagne colour.  Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze and Glow highlighter is fabulous for this!

Under Eye smoke:

Under eye smoke and coloured liner – definitely a trend we have seen more and more recently and with the pop of colour being so prominent why not use colour as an under-smoke.  This has always been my fave look since wearing makeup in the 90s so I am glad it’s coming back!!!

Back in December of last year I bought myself a red/burgundy eye-liner (which is actually a lip liner but can also be used in the eyes – amazing) – what I didn’t know was that this was going to be a trend.  Models on the Cavalli runway had the most beautiful and mesmerising eyes in a colour that you would usually run a mile from – get the tone right and your eyes will pop!
