The start of a new season is the perfect time to shake up your makeup routine with a few fresh new looks – why not get a head start today! Colour is the big story this spring – after season upon season of “no-makeup makeup” it’s seems that we can finally start busting out a bold red lip or electric blue liner again! Read on to discover our picks of the top 5 makeup trends to try this SS16…
Always a failsafe option, the classic red lip united makeup artists across the board this season in a specific shade of candy apple red. Seen all over the runways from Jason Wu to DKNY and Oscar de la Renta; the precision applied bold red lip is the perfect partner for a little black maternity dress, and the ultimate way to bring a little extra oomph to any outfit.
From tiny turquoise touches in the corners at Philip Lim, to iridescent butterfly effects at Diane Von Furstenberg and full on powder blue bandit masks at Chanel; designers & makeup artists couldn’t get enough of bold blue eye shadows and liners. There are no rules here – choose your shade, then go as big & bright or as soft & subtle as you like! This look is perfect for pairing with some of our stylish blue maternity dresses.
There are more ways than one to be pretty in pink this season! Usually reserved for the lips and cheeks, this season saw several makeup artists adding a pop of pink to the eyes. From peachy coral shades at Dior and Erdem to bright candy pink at Giamba, done right this trend can be ultra- soft and feminine – just like our Blush Pleated Maternity Skirt or our Pink Gingham Cotton Maternity Dress.
An unexpected twist on the spring summer catwalks this year was a moody injection of dark, rich lipsticks. We love the berry ombre lip stain at Burberry, the high shine dark gloss at Givenchy, and at Miu Miu we saw a dramatic look with berry liner fading into a dark purple shade. Work the trend with minimal eye makeup for a really striking style.
Designers and makeup artists had some serious fun with sparkles this season, and everybody had their own take on the look. We saw subtle fairy dust shimmers across the lids at Delpozo, major swathes of glitter at Creatures of the Wind, and Kate Spade models sported an understated streak of silver just above the lash line. A touch of sparkle is the perfect way to glam up your outfit for the evening – rock the look with our Premium Stretch Denim Maternity Jumpsuit and a glamorous beaded belt.
