Holographic glow a key beauty trend this spring

Now that warmer days are on the horizon, it is time to cast your mind back to the Spring/Summer 2017 ready-to-wear shows, and, more importantly the beauty looks that stormed the catwalks. 


One of the key looks from the season was a touch of holographic shimmer, and luckily for us, it's still bang on trend.

The catwalk was awash with gleaming complexions, with a particular focus on the cheeks and the lips. The natural look is always popular in New York, but SS17 saw multiple designers updating the conservative approach with a hint of gloss. High shine made for a simple but striking statement at Oday Shakar and Nicholas K, as well as at Christopher Kane in London, where strobing and highlighting served as the basis for a wet-look makeup concept that fit in perfectly with their urban brand identities. Meanwhile, Fendi covered its models' pouts in full-on reflective glitter lipstick -- a look that was later seen at Maison Margiela. Acne debuted a holographic lip that shimmered between violet, blue and silver tones, while Fenty x Puma also opted for a little iridescent beige-pink action.

A whole host of shimmery cosmetics are hitting the market. These include Kylie Jenner's Kylie Cosmetics 'Kylighters', which launched earlier this month, as well as the latest invention from Milk Makeup, nicknamed 'Strobe Pens'. Cosmetics giant Lancome has also followed suit, with a new range of 'Click and Glow' highlighter pens in four different shades of gold and pink.
