Come to BloomThe fresh face, with a dusting of colour on eyes, lips and cheeks introduced on the runways back in the fall, has reappeared at spring and summer fashion shows. Faces are luminous, with a barely there look, and neutral shades help to complement skin tones. “The focus rests on soft eyes with little mascara, full and defined eyebrows, light pink lips and bronzer to replace blush,” says makeup artist Rita Stirpe.

We will still see some intense shades, but rather toned-down versions of the neon colours seen last summer. Smoky eyes will return, combined with sparkling shadows, and eyes will be lined with sheer pastels such as lavender, metallic, green and baby blues. You will see the classic red lip making a statement
this season.
