I realized I haven’t focus any attention to make up and make up trends from the runways. As we can see it was only a matter of time before natural makeup received its own refreshing spark. Like its sartorial counterparts, a pop of light-catching glitter provides the face with a splash of deft impact—and it’s a form of embellishment that’s best worn in the light of day. The new take on wearable shine is not “glam-rock, disco” glitter, but a more modern approach: cleaner, more ’90s with just little hits.
At Dries Van Noten, a concentrated strip of twinkling blue above the lash lines was all that was necessary to get the models runway-ready, while at Giambattista Valli, swooshes of sparkle in orange, blue, pink, and green hovered just below the eyebrows against an otherwise bare face. Small silver flecks provided a convincing detail to the last-night’s-party makeup seen at Marc Jacobs, and, at Louis Vuitton, even earlobes were given a metallic treatment.
Off the runway, too, the trend is picking up speed, with model Guinevere van Seenus recruiting Soleimani to give her a lambent look for her recent birthday, and furniture designer Ana Kras swapping an expected liquid cat-eye in favor of a brilliant bronze line.
Gold or silver flecks pressed into a coat of beige cream eyeshadow make a “quite chic” appropriate way to get starry-eyed, as do large sparkles on lids adhered with clear Lucas’ Papaw Ointment; and a bare eye with a bold lower lash line sweep of royal blue, citrine green, or magenta is best anchored with a healthy application of black mascara. “The possibilities are endless.”
