Ladies and gentlemen, it is time prepare your favorite makeup brushes, makeup palettes ad liquid liners. The new fashion season has finally arrived and brought a bunch of brand new makeup and fashion trends. So, unfasten your safety belts and play around with sparkling glitter and bold colors. From washes-out eyeshadow colors at Anna Sui and Fenty Beauty to long thick cat eyeliner at Versace and upgraded red lips at Negris Le Broom. Today I've gathered up the most striking makeup trends, stolen from the backstage of the latest runway fashion shows.
One of the biggest and definitely the most striking makeup trend of the upcoming winter/spring season is an extra edgy eyeliner. A large number of girl wore this elaborate graphic designs on their eyes. So, all you need to stay trendy this winter is some blackest black eye liner, sharpened eye kohl and just a bit of imagination. Lead makeup artists at Dries Van Noten, Peter Philips added depth to the lids with a thick matte black paint. Dior decorated nude faces with black eye pencil, drawing imperfect designs on the outer corners of the eyes. And ladies at LaQuan Smith, Versace and Marni had long thick and skinny double wings.
Is there anything better than glitter? We don't think so! Fashion and makeup artists absolutely agree with us, bringing glittery trend back on track. Get rod of plain eyeshadow colors and coat your lids with chunky gold flakes à la Kate Spade style or magnetic rose gold shimmers, seen at Simone Rochas. Pair glittering eyes with little or no other makeup on your skin and bold accessories.
Blurred & Stained
There were several makeup looks, representing my favorite blurred eyeshadow and stained lips look. As evidenced by the Marques Almeida there is nothing bad about blurry color on your eyes, sloppily applied on the lids. Be ready to experiment with different colors: fuchsia pink, cobalt blue, yellow and tangerine. Apply them around your eyes, smudging the harsh lines. The ideal accompaniment for blurry eyes are stained, smudged lips. Check my post about soul eater lip trend to learn more about this imperfect, but so charming lip trend.
Anna Sui's beauty was inspired by artist Tony Duquette and she used a lot of washed out colors on her model, creating a sunset effect on the skin.“Celebrating self-expression” is the main concept of Giorgio Armani new collection. To reveal the natural beauty, Linda Cantello makeup artist at Giorgio Armani, blushed her models with iridescent rose gold hues. This look is simple, minimalistic and very modern. The lips were left almost untouched with just a bit of dewy gloss. The Fenty Beauty draw their inspiration from the appearance of a stained-glass, therefore makeup artists painted hints of glowing color on the dewy skin. This look turned out to be very vibrant and juicy! I can't stop admiring the models.

Marie Antoinette Vibe
Powdered makeup looks and high-raised hair styles (exaggerated updo), inspired by the ladies of 18th century the court, were predominant on the Marc Jacob's spring 2019 fashion show. Oh ladies, Marie Antoinette would love this fashion show, wouldn't she? To keep the overall look well-balance, the leading makeup artist Diane Kendall kept the skin fresh-looking, almost bare. Instead she focused on powdery eyeshadows on the lids, matching the hair and skipped the blush. Don't understand this look too literal, even thought it is inspired by retro and even vintage wave, this makeup should look somehow futuristic and fresh.
Qu'ils mangent de la brioche
An everlasting classic red lip trend is going to stay with us during the coldest times of a year. But this season, red hues ranging from warm orangey to bloody red showed up on models pouts. You can easily upgrade an autumnal burgundy lip trend to something less dramatic, but just as classic and spicy. Ass seen on Naeem Khan and Moschino catwalks, add a bit of glossy lacquer on the top of your red lipstick for refined latex-like lip look. For a plain matte finish, touch your lipstick with a fluffy kabuki brush, dipped in translucent powder.

Barely there makeup is a must-have look in a new winter/spring 2019 season. From dreamy shimmery eyes at Adeam models, just-kissed rosy lips at Brock Collection label to slightly blushed cheeks at Lela Rose. All natural makeup is the most comfortable and romantic look ever invented! You can wear it on a daily basis and even for a special occasion, like a first date. Get the woke-up-like-this vibe by adding just a little hint of color on your lids and cheeks, skip contouring and don't use any harsh colors for this look.
