Spring 2015 Makeup Trends: The Hottest Looks & How to Achieve Them

Spring 2015 offers a multitude of makeup looks to suit everybody’s cosmetic palette; from smokey ‘bed head’ eyes to lips that scream drama and a graphic liner look to appease even the most conservative of beauty lovers, there’s something for everyone. Here’s a sample of the SS15 catwalks’ best looks and everything you’ll need to achieve a model-worthy makeup moment.


1. SULTRY EYES and NUDE LIPS

It’s both sexy and glamorous but always effortlessly ‘undone’; the smokey eye and nude lip combo is an eternal favourite for make-up artists and beauty lovers alike. Spring 2015 opts to pare back the classic look with minimal colour outside of the eyes – channel a ‘your lips but better’ matte lipstick and subtle flush of bronzer on the cheeks to recreate this for yourself. Make-up must-haves for this look:

2. BOLD LIPS and FEATHERY LASHES

A bright lip set against a muted base is the MVP in the world of makeup and 2015’s take on the traditional, glamorous look features a slight twist – the classic, simple liner is replaced with tawny eyes and feathery lashes for a relaxed vibe. Whilst the complexion is clean, it isn’t immaculate – just add highlighter and fill in your brows. Make-up must-haves for this look:

3. AZURE BLUE EYESHADOW or PASTEL BROWS

Not one for the faint-hearted, Spring 2015 has recommended a new hue for our cosmetics palettes – turquoise, azure blue, aqua and an almost-lilac pastel have been spotted on the catwalk this season. Another to be paired with a nude lip, let your eyes take centre-stage and brave the transition from winter into summer with this statement look. Opt for a simple gloss on the lips and a light sweep of terracotta blush on your cheeks. Make-up must-haves for this look:

  • If you’re after a bright and beautiful blue but don’t want to go too full-on at first, try lining your lids with the Stila Magnificent Metals Eyeliner in Metallic Navy. Brand new and inspired by NYFW, this deep blue shimmering shadow is the most subtle and sophisticated way to hint at this trend
  • The Queen of colour, pack on Illamasqua Powder Eyeshadow in Anja for a bright, aqua blue that will brighten your eyes and peek out perfectly from under your lashes
  • The brand new Barry M Eyeshadow and Highlighter Palette in Summer Love actually features the perfect pastel lilac-blue for this look, so if you’re planning on recreating this pastel brow look, this £6.49 palette is perfect for you

4. GRAPHIC LINER and a MATTE POUT

If you try one new thing with your beauty routine this Spring, make it switching up your eyeliner look. Whilst we all have our staple, go-to look, there’s nothing that’ll help you stand out more than incorporating a graphic liner into your look. As seen at Orla Kiely, a 60s flutter is both feminine and flattering, whilst Jean-Pierre Braganza makes a bold and graphic style look nothing other than sexy and sophisticated. Make-up must-haves for this look:
