Guest Post: 4 Runway Makeup Trends That Are Perfect For The Summer

 In Guest Blog Posts

When I was a little girl, I loved reading my fashion magazines. I ooh’ed and ahh’ed looking at countless campaigns of Chanel, Alexander McQueen, and Fendi before thinking about how the garments that were once on the runways shortly found themselves on pretty much anyone who had access to a Forever 21.

Runway Makeup Trends Perfect For Summer

As I got older, the more I realized that’s there’s more to fashion than the glitz and glamour of handmade couture gowns and their equally impressive accessories. The makeup is just as influential, too. Here are four ways runway makeup influenced this summer’s hottest makeup trends.

Bright Lids

Victoria Beckham

It might be time to put away your nude palettes because colors are officially in. What’s so great about this trend is how imaginative and creative you can be with it thanks to designers like Victoria Beckham and labels like Max Mara.

It’s Lit


Less is more, is what someone once said, and they’re right. From Prada’s glossy and healthy skin to popping highlighting at Lanvin, becoming (and looking) natural has never looked so good.

Bold Lips

Cushnie et Ochs

Admittedly, bold lips have been in trend for a while now, especially last year in the fall/winter, but it’s taken a more vibrant approach this spring and summer. From peachy orange at Versus to color blocking at Cushnie et Ochs’ Spring 2017 collection, it’s proven that it’s here to stay thanks to its bright pops of color.



Whether you decide to go all out (and I mean up to your temples like Kenzo did this year) or keep it to a minimum like Chanel, blush is the perfect way to have that rosy glow without having to go outside.

    Not sure that my brides (especially the ones after 40……) would be so brave to try every trending make up ))))) But I like some fresh and natural make up ideas….

  • Johanna

    Gorgeous! I would do the same thing - browse through the big magazines like Vogue or look at the runway images on and be utterly jealous of all the stunning outfits. And then go to H&M to see if I could find something similar in my budget 🙂

  • Becky
