MAKE-UP: Black Eyeliner

Black eyeliner never goes out of fashion, but that doesn’t mean it always has to look the same. This season designers have gotten creative with black eyeliner, experimenting with different shapes and styles.

Cat flick

The classic cat flick style was kept simple at Prada, whilst at Oscar De la Renta and Celine it was bold and graphic. Celine’s was accompanied by detached eyeliner on the bottom, creating a more unique look.

Over at Pucci, the black eyeliner was finely applied and allowed for the model’s eyes to stand out. The perfectly fresh, feminine daytime look.

Perfect match

This season’s designers showed how bronzer works on any skin tone. The key is choosing the right shade to compliment your hair colour and complexion. For example, at Michael Kors the models’ fair hair and skin is matched with blusher that has slightly rosy undertones.

Meanwhile, the models with warmer skin tones at Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Versace wear a more peachy tone of bronzer.

MAKE-UP: Natural Make-up

Don’t be shy to stick to the bare minimum and opt for ‘au naturel’. This season, the detail is in the lips.


Models at Chloé and Stella McCartney put their best pout forward with a slick of clear gloss. Glossy lips at McCartney were matched with the models’ fresh, dewy glow.

HAIR: Accessories

From springtime florals to an innovative “crocodile tail”, accessories come in an abundance of styles this season!


Sweet and simplistic was the theme at Tracy Reese. The sleek ponytails were finished off with a two bands of nude and black satin for a ballerina chic style. At Bottega Veneta, the loose hairstyles were lightly sprinkled with a row of tiny blue flowers.

Large flowers

Elsewhere, the flowers were bigger and bolder. A pair of traditional red roses adorned the low chignon hairstyles at Dolce & Gabbana. Meanwhile, the unusual “crocodile tail” running the length of the ponytails at Fendi was topped with an oversized, abstract lotus flower.

Some of the Dolce & Gabbana chignons were decorated with jewelled gold barrettes with hints of red adding an oriental touch. At Valentino, the half-up half-down hairstyles were delicately embellished with a charming crown of golden sea motifs.

HAIR: Braids and Twists

A timeless trend, braids are back this season in the form of tight cornrows and loose plaits.

Tight cornrows

The tight braided styles at Jean Paul Gaultier and Armani were bold and edgy. Armani’s models were given highlights for a more interesting look.

Tousled mini plaits

Elsewhere, the hair models’ hair was more carefree. A popular theme was the messy, tousled look completed with a mini plait. The plait at Michael Kors was at the nape of the neck;

HAIR: Textured and Tousled

Let those natural locks hang loose, or add a bit of texture for a more stylised look!

Natural waves

At Alberta Ferretti, the centre-parted hair flowed with natural waves creating a soft, romantic look.

Edgy bob

Marc Jacobs decided to fit his models with short, choppy wigs for a bold and defined look. Similarly, Tom Ford’s models wore short wigs that were rough and rugged thanks to sweeping side bangs and a bit of backcombing.
