SS19 Beauty: The Trends


Looking to the runway once again for more than just fashion cues, Spring/Summer 2019 delivers a brazen makeup mood that's all about colour. Whether it's not-so-shrinking violet or a blurred red lip, there's no better time to get playful with brights. Feeling colour shy? 'No makeup' makeup isn't out yet and, this time, three-dimensional definition is key. Get creative and tap the trends, right here.

Punch up the perfect pink lip with an ultra-defined edge. Line and fill lips with Nars Lip Liner in Menton, drawing a sharp dip in the cupid’s bow – don’t be afraid to cheat for symmetry. Apply Bobbi Brown Matte Lip Colour in Rebel Rose on top, then brush up brows and add a sun-kissed dusting of freckles across the nose with soft brown pencil.

Natural definition needn’t always look natural. This season, even muted nude tones get a dose of drama, amped up with a slick of high-shine gloss across lids. The trick? Layer Bobbi Brown Crystal Lip Gloss over Jillian Dempsey Lid Tint in Bronze, softening the edges with a brush and pairing with pristine skin and brushed brows.

Universally flattering, a summery wash of coral can pull even the most colour shy out of their shell. Double up, blending Trish McEvoy Eyeshadow - Golden Apricot into the whole lid and adding a slick of NARS Audacious Lipstick in Apoline to lips. Brush up brows to open up the face and you’re left with a fresh, romantic glow.

Painterly, lash-extending red on eyes is an unexpected colour trend which really isn’t hard to pull off. Feathered out across the upper lid, Nars Audacious Lipstick in Shirley gives a rich, glossy colour. Mirror the contour of the eye but keep the finish imperfect, removing any colour close to the lash line with a micellar-dipped cotton bud.

Hyperreal bare-faced beauty is a trend that’s going nowhere. This season, it’s all about playing up lids, lips and brows, blending matte, barely-there colour into the eyelids and cheeks. A sweep of Chantecaille Brow Lift along the water line and a dab of Trish McEvoy Fast-Track Highlighter Stick on cheekbones and inner eye are your secret for a romantic, luminous finish.

Purple reigns this spring, serving a colour-soaked spin on high drama makeup. Trust us, a multi-dimensional violet smoke on eyes worn with a lacquered wine stain on lips, like Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Redwood, is more wearable than you think. Just keep skin pristine and eyebrows arched.

It’s time to go bold, embracing saturated brights with wild abandon. We’re reclaiming blue eyeshadow with blurred turquoise lids, layering Nars Eyeshadow in Baby Jane over Nars Velvet Eyeliner in Curacao. Curl-enhancing brown mascara keeps lashes defined without excess – just add an iced rose lip for contrast.

Forget drawing inside the lines. The red lip of the moment wears faded edges for a dreamy, soft-focus pout. Start perfect, pencilling the shape of the lips before filling in and brushing Bobbi Brown Matte Lip Colour in On Fire on top. A dry cotton bud along the lip line is all you need to get that modern diffused touch.
