Florals? For Spring?


All sarcasm aside, though – these Spring floral makeup looks are actually pretty darn groundbreaking. At New York Fashion Week, Rosie Assoulin showcased a beautiful S/S ’17 collection, where makeup artist James Kaliardos created a subtle floral look that made the girls seem as though they’ve been rolling in a bed of flowers. He used MAC products, mainly the Studio Eye Gloss on the skin before dappling the flower petals on the outer corners of the eyes. It’s a look that’s easy to recreate if you want to look like you’ve been wandering around in an enchanted forest for hours.

Fresh off the heels of Rosie Assoulin’s collection, it seems that this floral look is on its way to becoming a new romantic trend. Preen’s S/S ’17 collection at London Fashion Week by Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi presented a parade of garments inspired by witchcraft, with printed dresses and ruffled separates that were enhanced by a mesmerising approach to hair and makeup. Makeup artist Val Garland replaced the usual beauty items with dried cornflowers, daisies and forget-me-nots that were pressed onto the models’ cheeks, collarbones, foreheads, and even backs, with some of the models sporting a poetic gesture with delicate petals focused only on their lips.


Val Garland also called upon MAC Cosmetics to hold the flowers in place, namely using the Mixing Medium Shide and Duo Adhesive to get that “woodland fairy” aesthetic. Would you try these spellbinding makeup looks?
