Spring is one of the best seasons, not only in terms of the tame and pleasant weather but also in terms of fashion and makeup. The most vibrant and happy shades of the color palette come out to play and create the most brilliant looks on the runway. With a variety of summery colors and uniquely bold designs making an appearance on the runway, this season’s makeup looks did not disappoint. To compensate for the saddening shift in everyone’s lifestyle the past year, this year’s runway looks brought a vibrant color palette to bring life back to fashion. To figure out how you can make your makeup look like it’s fresh off the runway, read on to find out the top 6 makeup looks from the SS21 fashion shows
#1 Graphic Liner:
Makeup artists created masterpieces just with the power of eyeliner this season. Whether it was classic black or beautifully pastel shades of all our favorite spring colors, these runway looks at Valentino, Salvatore Ferragamo, Francesca Liberatore, and Saint Laurent greatly influenced the makeup gurus of Instagram and TikTok.
#2 Two-toned Lip:
Seen at Daniel Sallstrom, this two-toned lip was a revolutionary statement and a clear nod to the color-blocked makeup looks of the 60s. The cut crease eyeshadow, glimmering highlighter, and round tinted glasses completed the look to make the perfect glitter statement.
#3 Glossy Lip:
Although this season was full of colorful makeup moments, there were some looks on the runway that taught us that less is more. Designers like Jason Wu, LBV, Gucci, David Koma, and Dior went for completely natural and dewy makeup looks, only heavy on the gloss and the moody liner. Pack on some clear lip gloss, highlighter, shimmery eyeshadow, and you’re good to go.
#4 Colorful Eyes:
Other than a variety of bold black eyeliner looks, colorful eyelids also made a common appearance on the runway. Bethany Williams, Mark Fast, Tom Ford, and Harlem’s Fashion Row are just a few of the many that made vibrant statements in shades of pink, teal, purple, and more.
#5 Red Lip Classic:
Two things never go out of style; one’s a little black dress and the second is a classic red lip. This statement was once again proven right at the runways of Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Balmain, Hermes, and Saint Laurent, especially as it served as the centerpiece of otherwise cool and vampy looks.
#6 Smoky Eye:
Done best by Chanel, the smokey eye look was popular amongst designers this season as it made an appearance on just about every runway of SS21. Designers like Givenchy and Dior followed the sultry trend to match the moody tone of their looks.
When it comes to the color palette, SS21’s makeup looks were completely unmatched. Try out any of this bold and unique makeup looks this season to change up your style and let the colors of spring and summer brighten up your look.
