I might not be the one to follow the fashion trends, however, when it comes to makeup then count me in! If I’m checking the fashion week related articles, the main reason is to find out the upcoming makeup trends. Don’t you think fashion weeks are great for finding our the trends? Do you have any fashion week inspired makeup trends for Spring 2017?

You can use makeup to express yourself. You don’t need to listen anyone when you’re in that creative phase and just be proud of what you come up with. When you want to stand out, then just do something fancy or crazy with your makeup which will make it special and unique. I think that’s the way all these makeup artists think in the fashion shows. They just want to create something that most of us wouldn’t dare to do, so it can give us confidence to try something different. Makeup trends for Spring 2017 has some similarities with the last year. Colourful, glowing and shiny!

Makeup Trends for Spring 2017

Get Glowing

It looks like we can’t get enough of highlighted glowing skin… Glow that can be seen from the moon! Some makeup artists think “The shinier and glowier the skin, the better it is”. The highlighted glowing skin trend is here to stay. Highlighters aren’t only way to get the glow, you can get fresh and glowing skin by tweaking your skincare routine as well. Champagne to metallic, there are so many alternatives which appeared on the fashion week. To get more intensified look, using the fixing mist on the highlighted areas will get the skin even more glowing. If it is one of your favourite trends then you get the glow going. If you aren’t into the highlights then it might be the time to give highlighted skin a go.

Makeup trends change a lot and one of the main influencers is the fashion week. To find out more about the fashion week inspired makeup trends for spring 2017 check out the post.

Glitters Everywhere

Every girl has an experience with glitters. It all starts with glittery glues when we’re kids then some carries on to the makeup or some just hates the name of it. Which one are you? Glitters aren’t only on the nails or on the eyes, but also on the lips! In many fashion shows chunky glitters were applied on the lips and even some of them on the eyebrows, are you up for it? I’m up for the nails one, but I don’t think I’d be up for lips or eyebrows!

80’s are back

I was just a little kid in at the end of 80’s so I couldn’t get to try the colourful 80’s makeup. Do I want to try it now? I don’t think so! I’m not that into so colourful makeup. If you’re from 80’s and loved the trend back then, there you go girl, 80’s are back. Colourful and metallic eyes to bright lips, everything you can expect from 80’s. Pop of colour can be your thing, just think about the colourful spring and go all in. What do you say to forest green eyes to bright orange lips?

No-Makeup Makeup – Radiant Skin

No-makeup look has been hit for quite a long time now and it is still one of the trends that showed up a lot on the fashion shows. The main focus on the no-makeup look is to have radiant and flawless skin. In order to achieve that of course a good skincare routine is the first essential step. You can either go for a low coverage foundation to get some colour or use medium to high coverage foundation to achieve flawless skin. When you get the radiant flawless skin then you can keep the rest relatively minimal.

Give Red a try

Can you ever get bored of classic red lips? Well it is not only the lips this time, you can expect to see it on  the cheeks and eyes, the only limit is your imagination. If you are not up for those two things, at least you get an excuse to put on your red lipstick! Red never gets out of the trend, so why don’t you add some to your makeup stash?

Bold Lips

When you think about the bold lips, which season do you think of? Is it autumn or winter? Well this spring and summer, don’t be surprised to see some bold lips from vampy berries to blues. It is not only the matte  bold lips, bold lips which are pumped up with gloss to get them even more catchy. If you are not up for the bold lips then how about bright orangey lips to shine just like a diamond?

Pink&Blush All Over Again

Are you a fan of pink and peachy look? You might be seeing so many pink, peach and blush fashion pieces everywhere, it is not only the fashion which focuses on these colours but also the beauty companies as well. These colours just scream spring, so why don’t you show them a little bit of love? Even if you’re not comfortable wearing it on your eyes, how about colouring your cheeks with your favourite shade of pink! Try your favourite pink lipsticks on your cheeks, if you don’t have any pink blush!

Keep it Simple

Keeping it simple, it sounds good, doesn’t it? You don’t need to go all in, apply some nude nail polish to keep them minimal, have the no-makeup look and even keep the hair messy, no one will judge you for having bed hair! Beauty isn’t what it used to be before. There are no rules and no limitations, so there’s no point to try to get everything perfect. It is acceptable to have some messy house look as well. Would you dare to go out like that?

These are some of the beauty trends that took my attention. Main focus this year is to get fresh and glossy skin, as well as going back to 80’s. There are a few that I will be following, but 80’s is not one of them!

  • No to the highlighters and the 80s combos for me, but I have been wearing a little more color on my eyes lately, and no makeup makeup or red lips are among my favorites no matter the trend.

    • I tried wearing light pink last week and people kept asking me if I’m sick or not… I should try other colours!

      • Yes, better try another color then. Sick is not what we are going for.

  • I am definitely going to bring the red lip out again! I’ve been wearing nudes for so long, I think it’s time for a switch up. Fab post chick x


    • Reds are perfect for any time of the year, definitely switch up to reds! xx

  • Love this post, Ela! I don’t think I’d do glitter eyes (been there, done that!) or 80s makeup but I’m all for pink/peach cheeks and radiant skin! xx


    • I don’t think I’d do 80s makeup, it is not for me 🙂 x

  • I like most of these trends 🙂 Although I like playing with colourful makeup and take some inspirations from 80s I’d rather all the exaggerated makeup stayed in 80s, haha. But I’m all for radiant skin, peachy/pink cheeks and can even do some glitter 😉 x

    • I hope 80s trend won’t be as colourful as how it was back then, it is too much colour x

  • I really like most of the makeup trends at the moment! The only thing I don’t like with glowy looks is when there’s clearly too much highlighter – why would anybody want to try and blind the person in front of them? haha. Glitter everywhere is a genius trend, and I’m quite enjoy the metallic lips looks I’ve seen recently. Not sure I’d give them a go though, it’s quite a daring look!

    • I like glow, but nothing too strong and I’m happy that it is still one of the trends! x

  • I have been wearing no makeup makeup but with very bold res lips. Minimal makeup is the way to go for me but I always highlight. I find that it gives a very fresh looking complexion on me.

    • Even when I have minimal makeup, I make sue to apply highlighter as well. It gives such a nice and healthy glow!

  • I’m looking forward to embrace a good glow this season, as well as working the red lips. Good looking skin and a pop of color goes a long way! Xx


    • Healthy glow is what I love and I don’t seem to get tired of it 🙂 x

  • I want to wear more bold lips this spring definitely! Big fan of blush and nude nails already too!

  • I took a break from highlighter but now I’m loving it again, with buying 2 new NYX liquid higlighters and drooling over the new liquid one from Tarte. I love my a healthy glow of blush too!


    • I should give liquid highlighter a try, I tend to go for powder or cream!

    love these trends to try! I just bought the Anastasia Glow Kit which features 4 different highlight shades and have been having fun trying them out!




    • Anastasia Glow Kit is gorgeous, I am tempted to get it too 🙂 xx

    Some really wonderful ideas here, hun! I have actually been quite into wearing red lately, and not just on my lips. I am a huge fan of cranberry eyeshadows, and I have seen someone on YouTube do a red eyeliner look recently, and it looked fantastic! <3 Thank you for sharing; hope that you have the best weekend ahead, beauty! xoxo


    • Red eyeliner? I have seen so many colours, but red… nope! I need to infuse some colour to my eye makeup rather than keeping it neutral all the time 🙂 Have a lovely weekend, gorgeous! x

  • I’m glad that the glittery look is in as I’ve got a few glitter polishes in a set I received for Christmas and I’ve been enjoying wearing them, now I have even more reason to paint them on! 😀 No glitter makeup though, I do have a metallic eyeshadow if that counts?

    Hope you are having a good weekend 🙂

    • I am ok with metallic eyeshadows but not with glittery ones, it is not for me 🙂

      Have a lovely weekend!

    I’m not really into the glitters or 80s makeup! But I love dewy skin and the pink and blush colours…

    I really need to get that milani foundation, more of their baked blushes as well as that sleek cleopatra highlighter kit! I’m also pretty keen on trying out their setting spray. Great post.


    • I want to try more from Milani, so far all the products I tried are good!

  • The glow is definitely here to stay, great post! I think pink lips might make a comeback which falls under your 80s revival, definitely think that makeup is going to be a little bolder and more fun this year! Thank you for sharing xxx

    • Bolder makeup with lots of colours, I’m not quite ready for that 🙂 x

  • As much as I love the bold, glittery lips and crazy eyeshadow colours on models, I don’t think I’m confident (or skilled) enough to pull those looks off! I love the glowy look and the no-makeup makeup though, so I’m happy those trends are still around. Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day!

    • I feel the same way, I’m not that confident enough to wear them. Glow and dewy look are ok, but 80s hype, definitely not!

  • I could never get bored of classic red lips, no matter the season! 😉

  • That Sleek palette is my go-to for glow! Lovely post x

    enjoyed reading the post. loving the sleek palette. x

  • Fashion week definitely gives you some great tips, aside from just the trends on the runway. You can learn what the latest products makeup artists are using. I discovered a great highlighter when I was getting my makeup done for a runway show. And now I’m definitely more into following what those makeup artists recommend.

    • Fashion week makeup artists know what they are doing and I’m happy with most of these trends, especially the glowing skin! x
