As we bid a final farewell to fashion month, we can't help but recall all the show-stealing, and trend-setting beauty looks spotted on the runway. It seems that past trends have been resurrected in recent seasons for both fashion and beauty. For Spring Summer 19, we revisit the 80’s for a fresh new approach to beauty.

BOLD EYES

Yes, bold is better. Don't get too overwhelmed by the colours; the prevalence of 80s eye makeup is all about using colours to express your individuality. Rochas has shown that the typical cat eye can also be translated through graphical lines instead of the usual black wing. At Dior, d a couple of freeform lines was created to accentuate the cat-eye look.

BROW GAME

Like many iconic celebrity figures like Brooke Shield, Madonna and Whitney Houston that made their brows an icon, the thick natural brow trend has been revived. Chloe has perfectly shown that ample brows with an angular silhouette compliments a power dressing ensemble. At Tom Ford, a lean brow silhouette was created to compliment the outfits. One thing to pay attention to, is the same colour brow-to-eye shadow seen at Nicole Miller.

Punk Fringes

Beside all the makeup trends, we can't help but notice these mini uneven bangs. Exuding the 80s punk- rock vibe, these fringes are not your usual baby blunt bangs. Punk fringes have a lot more edge that is achieved with a choppy and uneven cut. Dries Van Noten’s version had a slightly more voluminous look on the punk bangs. Prada and Miu Miu followed suit, with their models wearing a hairband to soften the look. Tip: To achieve baby bangs that last in our humid weather, I use Ouai’s dry shampoo immediately after blow drying. The dry shampoo’s powder particles stick to each strand of the hair, giving it volume and fast absorption of perspiration, dirt and facial oil. For even fuller baby bangs, I use GHD’s Gold Styler to curl the ends of my fringe.
