Wearable Make-Up Trends

"Barely there" make up always seems to make an appearance somewhere during fashion week, but this season the dewy finish seems to have taken a backseat and has been replaced by perfectly matte and contoured skin. I love this as although I've always thought dewy skin looks amazing on some skin tones, and especially those with very clear skin, it just doesn't suit me and I'm sure others will feel the same. Here's my breakdown of my favourite make-up trends this season that I think anyone could wear.

This look by Balmain shows off the 'non make-up' trend perfectly and it is possibly my favourite of this particular style. It's beautifully understated, effortless and also entirely wearable. Another great thing about it is that it's versatile: a quick swipe of lipstick could transform this into a simple evening look (Diane Von Furstenberg and Fendi did just that).

Dolce and Gabbana
The 60's feline flick has made yet another appearance on the catwalk. This look by Dolce and Gabbana is extremely classic, it was paired with backcombed beehives which were also sometimes accessorised with extravagant crowns. Once you have mastered the flick (I still haven't quite) this is an easy look to create. Matte lipstick, another favourite of mine, was added and the skin left slightly dewy, but not as much as we've seen in previous seasons.

Diane Von Furstenberg
I mentioned this Diane Von Furstenberg look above, and it's a trend I have been trying out myself recently although I do apply a very small amount of mascara. The skin is highlighted slightly around the eyes and subtly contoured around the cheekbones. This whole look is in the barbie pink lipstick: it's garish and bright and it only works because of the bareness of the rest of the face. Too much eye make-up and blusher and it really might start to look a bit barbie-esque, so be aware of that if you want to try this out yourself.

Anna Sui
Now this look by Anna Sui isn't so wearable but it was one of my favourites, modelled here by the lovely Cara Delevingne. Thick black eyeliner flicks and marks underneath the eye are reminiscent of the classic Twiggy style. The hair was left simply styled or tied back in looped ponytails which worked well with the bold make-up.
