Summer loving... Take your cue from the SS17 catwalks with soft, earthy shades on eyes, lips and cheeks, says KATIE WRIGHT.


THE international fashion weeks give us their fair share of out-there beauty looks, and while a face covered in real flower petals a la Preen looks ever-so pretty on a load of impossibly beautiful teen models, it's not exactly going work for Thursday night after-work drinks, is it? Three cheers, then, for the SS17 catwalks, which delivered a host of beautiful make-up ideas in soft, organic tones that you'll definitely want to try.

"These colours are designed to enhance and mimic really great skin condition," explains MAC make-up artist Terry Barber. "The modern way to wear them is in textures that have an affinity with the complexion.

"Peach, pink and tan look alive and fresh when applied with transparency," agrees makeup artist Mark Carrasquillo. "They are whSat I call very heightening colours."

Ready to heighten your look? Here are four ways to wear the sun-kissed make-up trend...

1GOLDEN EYES "FRESH but sophisticated, with a little touch of gold on the lip and the eye," is how Lloyd Simmons described the look he created at Alexis Mabille, where MAC Powersurge soft gold eyeliner was applied beneath the lower lashline, creating a subtle, brightening effect.

A very light coat of brown mascara was used, while at Shrimps, the lashes were left bare and a wash of metallic cream and powder shadows was buffed all the way up to the brows, to create an 'otherwordly' glow.

colour PS18 The most literal homage came at Moschino, where precisely lined lips were filled in with matte pale tan. At Blumarine, creamy mahogany complemented the peachy eyes, while at Roksanda, a russet lipstick was blurred at the edges.

3 TEA-STAINED EYES BROWN eyeshadow may not sound ground-breaking, but the eye looks at Roksanda and Stella Jean felt really fresh. That's because a soft peachy-brown cream shadow was applied in a monochromatic wash from lid to crease, while at the latter, clear lip gloss was added to enhance the shine.

4PEACHY SKIN GIVE you bronzer a break and embrace the peachy, youthful glow of the girls at Missoni, Paul Smith and Blumarine, where Petros Petrohilos' brief was: "Rosy cheeks, a sun-kissed girl.... like she is living on the beach." That means opting for liquid blushers and shimmery powders and applying liberally - matte is not an option.
