Spring ahead! CSL has got your whole makeup and hair looks covered with these unforgettable runway trends that bring earthy, minimalist style to the fore.

1/ Easy Burnish

Val Garland for Nars Cosmetics created a “tea stained, romantic eye,” by blending the same lipcolour onto lids, lips, and delicately brushing onto cheekbones for a modern burnish. Inspired by the 17th century wardrobe belonging to a lady in waiting to the wife of Charles 1 that was found in the North Sea, this version of romantic beauty was one part painting and one part modern minimalism. At Reem Acra, makeup artist Carole Colombani drew inspiration from Renaissance paintings. “I wanted to create this kind of beautiful – and not just flushed from a party face – but a super, freshly, romantically done look.” The key to the burnished look? Choose a delicate and soft colour that can be used all over the face. A copper tone works with all skin tones.

2/ Texture All Over

Drawing inspiration from the ‘80s, models hair was crimped, teased and set with voluptuous curls.  Not only was hair given texture but it was adorned with ribbons, hair combs and elastics to add interest to locks. Not to worry though, this season is all about controlled chaos rather than a literal replica of the hairstyles of yesteryear. Try putting wavy hair up into a ponytail, secured with a thick black ribbon for an all day look.

3/ Flirty Lashes

This season’s fresh, simple face calls for just a whisper of mascara on lids instead of a heavy thick coat.  To carry off the entire polished look, groom brows with a brow powder or gel.

4/ Bare Face

Maybe its pop culture’s fascination with revealing complexions sans makeup, but the clean face is here to stay. If the idea of revealing less-than-perfect skin scares you but want to embrace this trend, stick to covering only blemishes and imperfections with a small bit of concealer and stick to a neutral lipcolour.
