Colour and light: this is the season’s makeup motto. The proof in five key trends spotted on the runways (and on Instagram!).
1. Eyeliner a thousand different ways
Seen at Prabal Gurung and Givenchy
A classic among classics, black eyeliner remains a must this year. Use it to create a kitten eye by drawing a slightly raised line along the upper lashes, or apply it all around the eye for more impact. Combine it with a metallic-finish coloured eye pencil to intensify the look. Guaranteed to dazzle!
2. Eyelids with a pop of colour

Should bright colours be reserved for summer? Absolutely not! This fall, we’re either going bold with pink, fuchsia, orange or electric blue, or taking a more discreet approach with soft shades like lilac - one of the season’s key shades. When it comes to finishing, you can’t go wrong with metallic-effect shadows: now is the time for an iridescent glow.
3. Vibrant lips
Seen at Libertine and Dries Van Noten
Now that we can go out again, we’re also wearing bright shades on our lips. Whether you go for fiery red or salmon pink, whether you prefer a well-defined pout or a "bitten lips" effect, you never miss the opportunity to play it glam. (Don’t forget to balance it with your eyes, and choose a long-lasting, matte formula for those times when you still need a face covering.)
Color Sensational Ultimatte slim lipstick delivers more intense color with an extreme matte finish and a comfortable, lightweight feel.
4. Discreet shine
Seen on Karlie Kloss and Chloe Bailey
Moisturized skin, luminous complexion... For the face, the no-makeup look is still popular. So we continue to rely on products with a translucent finish, formulated with nourishing ingredients, applied with a light hand.
Get a natural-looking finish with Burt's Bees Goodness Glows Tinted Moisturizer that leaves your skin with a flawless glow.
Upon application, this colour corrector with self-adjusting pigments visibly corrects the appearance of skin irregularities, providing a luminous, even complexion. Seamlessly combining makeup and skin care, its lightweight texture also hydrates and protects against environmental stressors and UVB rays.
5. Natural eyebrows
Seen at Jason Wu
Eyebrows are brushed upwards with a clear gel, then defined with a fine-tipped marker and a long-lasting pomade if necessary: this is the (ultra-simple) Soap brow technique, this season’s choice for a look that’s both natural and strong.
