Spring 2018 Makeup Trends

  1. The Natural Face

Spring is all about embracing your beauty and channeling your inner etherealย glow. Many runways during the Spring/Summer 2018 fashion runways definitely exuded these qualities in their models. This spring, let your skin breathe and enhance your imperfections with the no-makeup, makeup look.

2. Blush Overload

Blush has made a comeback, with fresh, rouge cheeks returning to so many runways.



While these rosy cheekbones may look a little extreme, with the right pigments for your skin tone, you can look like a goddess. Blush tends the give women a healthy, fresh look, so why not try out this trend by packing on the color to your cheeks!ย PatMcGrath created this makeup look for the Valentino Spring/Summer 2018 show.ย 



Rihanna really awed the beauty and fashion industry alike with her bold, original take on the Met Gala’s theme. Her beauty was intensified with the saturated pink blush and rouge lips. This is truly one of my favorite makeup looks of all time.

3. The Pop of Black

At various runway shows, eyeliner was popping and created a sultry look on many of the muses. Tom Ford, Miu Miu, and Fendi are just some of the designers that utilized this timeless technique to create a unique beauty effect.

4. Glowing Skin/Highlighting

Glowing skin is not always easy to achieve for those who do not have perfect skins like most models in these runway shows. However, a glowing, healthy makeup look can be created by using the right type of highlighter with strategic placement on the face.

The right highlight can transform your makeup from dull to divine.ย 



Slick Woods is glowing in this campaign for Fenty Beauty! Not only are Rihanna’s highlighters pigmented but the shade ranges are stunning. Not only does it give Slick a fresh look, but it gives her a feminine charm as well.




At Etro, the makeup was truly an epitome of the no-makeup-makeup look. The makeup techniques were so advanced that it makes it look like the model was wearing no makeup, when in fact she had been highlighted and contoured in all the right places of the face. Model, Maria Borges’ glow shines through with the natural highlight that makes her radiate from within.
