The Return of Classic Beauty

Understated beauty is essentially living on an island that is mostly sunny (and humid). Besides keeping our face looking fresh and clean, there is more to that and that is by embracing the resort vibes. Here are some of my favourite makeup looks from the season that you can easily style with  IT bags of Cruise'18.

1. THE Dramatic Wing
With Chanel taking the lead, the cat-lined eye is the new classic. Drawing inspiration from the ancient times, the bold eyeliner seems to resemble the legendary Cleopatra. For an everyday look, you might want to prime and blot your eyelids before attempting this bold makeup. I love putting a nude lip with bold eyes so that the focus remains on the liner.

Over at Valentino, this dramatic eyeliner strikes a perfect combination of various elements. The exaggerated cat-eye liner is very much a tribute dedicated to the hip-hop culture in New York City.

Glowy Effect
Less is definitely more. The au naturel is one classic makeup that everyone, especially the French, love. Oh là là! Naturally, this makeup trend picked up this season from the Dior's Cruise'18 show.

Just like the golden hour, the warm, sun-kissed glow is the perfect makeup for even the coldest of complexion. Focusing on the earthy and peachy colours, the natural tones also serve to define the features of the models. 

Also inspired by the ancient times, Gucci has opted for a quintessentially classic style in Cruise 2018. With the pearl skullcap and eyebrow looking extravagance, we are glad that the makeup was left bare with a lustering glow. 


Nude Lip Colours
Nude lips are timeless. From glossy to matte metallics, there's a nude texture and shade for everyone. It could be a bold eyed look or bare eyed look, nude shades will always be the to-go lip colour. 

Samurai armours, traditional prints, and the Kurosawa's colours - this is a love letter dedicated to us from Louis Vuitton. Despite its contrasting Kabuki makeup, the lips are left close enough to the natural lip colour. 

Inspired by the English country gardens, Alexander Mcqueen is surrounded by flowers this resort'18. Reflecting on nature in its forsaken times, the sweet scent of romance is rekindled through a softer makeup look.
