Another fashion month has passed, making it the perfect time to comb through all of the makeup looks that walked through the runways.
SS18 beauty trends either gestured towards the past and other cultures, or went down the route of being pretty bizarre (reverse lipstick, anyone?). On the plus side, Korea’s focus on dewy skin and pouty lips have moved to the West now, evinced by many models sporting fresh-faced, glowing complexions and cherry-pop lip stains. Messy bob and lob cuts were all the rage both on the runways and the streets, making them the “It” haircuts this season. They are also extremely low maintenance.
Not included in this list were the unusual and rather unpractical variations of eyeliner that governed the season. Thumbprint eyeliner was the most popular one. It is basically a twist on the cat-eye, with a rounded thumbprint-like blob where you’d normally have a refined flick.
It was everywhere this season, at Tom Ford, Jason Wu, and on star models like Bella and Gigi Hadid. We’re not entirely sure whether it’ll take off just yet, but Hung Vanngo’s thumbprint liner take on Selena Gomez has us hoping it might.
As we wait to see whether thumbprint liner will score mass popularity points, we’ve condensed the most wearable SS18 beauty trends that’ll get you looking forward to summer.
