Social media beauty queens may want us to believe dramatic, full-faced make-up is back and here to stay, but this week’s red carpet has confirmed what we’ve been thinking for quite some time: forget about heavy foundation and contouring – luminous complexions are set to rule the beauty world.
“Follow the red carpet more than the runway; it’s where you can pick out all the wearable beauty trends,” says Lori Taylor Davis, Global Pro Lead Artist for Smashbox. “Think fresh, nude, pinky and ethereal. As for the smokey eye, it’s not going anywhere but these days we’re doing it with a wash of colour, less liner and more smudged shadow under the lower lash line.”
Take a look at some of the best red carpet beauty inspiration we’ll be turning to this season.
