The runways during the latest round of Ready-to-Wear shows for the Spring/Summer 2017 season were a rich source of inspiration. Here are the beauty trends that caught my eye.
At Maria Grazia Chiuri’s inaugural show for Christian Dior, hairstylist Guido Palau created a look that balanced hip-hop and ballet. The models emerged in sleek topknots tethered by neat braids snaking up the back of their heads. I’d pair a cool topknot with a striking piece of jewelry, such as the AERIN Spiral Link Necklace.
At Gucci, beautiful eyebrows were enhanced to dramatic effect. The makeup team, headed by Yadim, bleached the models’ brows before painting them in pastel hues. We spotted pink, peach, lavender, yellow, and white—perfect spring shades.
Makeup artist Pat McGrath delivered an arrow of silver glimmer tucked into the inner corner of each eye at the Versace show. Achieve a subtler effect with the highlighter from the AERIN Weekend Palette, and enhance with an extra layer of our Lengthening and Volumizing Mascara.
At Erdem, black grosgrain ribbons kept the models’ messy braided buns in check. The hair, and Moralioglu’s romantic collection, would pair perfectly with these AERIN ballet flats that lace at the ankle with a black grosgrain ribbon.
Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi’s whimsical approach for Preen was delightful. Rather than makeup or jewelry, the models walked the runway decorated with pressed, dried wildflowers dotting their faces and collarbones.
Many designers favored the “wet look” this season, an indication that the high-end altheleisure trend is still going strong. Models sported glossy, fresh-from-the-shower (or gym) locks and glowing cheeks. At Altuzarra Tom Pecheux used gold powder to give the impression of dewy skin.
The soft waves and clean complexions at Michael Kors were some of my favorite beauty moments from the season. Hair was slightly textured and pinned back with a single bobby pin. A classic look that could be paired with our equally timeless Suede & Leather Shopper in brown rose.
