It may seem like a while away, but it's never too early to start thinking about next season's makeup trends – especially if they consist of pretty pastels, glossy lids, and dramatic cat-eyes like you've never seen them before. From Marc Jacob's rave-inspired runway show to Fendi's double winged liner, we're going to have a plethora of unique trends to work with come spring.
Unfortunately, not all of these trends are totally practical (or easy to re-create, for that matter) for everyday life. But that doesn't mean we can't re-imagine them to fit into our daily beauty routines! To help you prep for the warm weather season (and perfect your technique), Get The Look is giving you spring's hottest eye makeup trends and how to wear them in real life.
EYE MAKEUP: HOW TO WEAR SPRING 2017'S HOTTEST TRENDS
The eyes at Marc Jacobs' rave-inspired show were as dramatic and dreamy as the shock of candy-coloured hair that sat atop each model's head. Long, spiked lashes provided a contrast to the wash of high-pigment shadow on upper and lower lids.
To re-create this high impact look for everyday, prep your entire lid with an eye primer and then press a powder or cream shadow of your choice into the top crease and along the lower lashes. To keep the look wearable for everyday, start with a small amount of shadow and build the colour until you achieve the intensity you want, then blend the edges. Finish off with a black mascara on the top and bottom lashes to make the whites of the eye pop.
The classic smoky eye got a high-shine update thanks to a touch of gloss at Altuzarra – a sultry compliment to the super-feminine looks the designer sent down his runway. To re-create a more manageable version of this look (without overdoing the gloss), start by using a sharpened eye pencil to define the upper lash line and along the inside of the lower lashes.
After that, it's a matter of blending: Use an angled, natural brush to smudge the line for a smoky effect. If you want a shinier look, use a Q-tip to tap a tiny bit of Vaseline at the inner corners of the eye and around the lash line.
DOUBLE CAT EYE
A double dose of winged eyeliner lent an otherworldly feline vibe to the floaty fabrics and oversize silhouettes on the Fendi runway. For extra intrigue, colour was only focused on the inner and outer corners of the eye.
To get this look, reach for a gel liner with a thin brush. Make a dot at the outside corner of the eye, using an angle of the lower lash line as a guide. Then, work inward, finishing the line along the outer three-quarters of the top lash line. Repeat the process on the other eye and then join the lines along the lower lashes to make a cat-eye. For the inner corners, just line the bottom three quarters of the lash line.
The strong brow trend was turned on its head at Gucci, where models sported bleached-out or pale, pastel-coloured brows. We know that actually bleaching your brows isn't always an option, so instead of completely getting rid of them, create the illusion of lighter brows with concealer.
Using a clean spoolie, brush brows with a light shade first, then follow with a coat of your usual concealer hue. Keep the rest of your makeup natural, and brush the apples of the cheeks with blush to avoid looking too washed out.
