Color-Blocking Is the Latest Beauty Trend From Fashion Week

Dacy Knight

We've witnessed a strong lineup of exciting runway beauty looks this spring 2017 season and are, naturally, taking note of the most important trends. On the heels of New York's bright eyes and look-at-me lips, Milan served up its own, even bolder iteration. It comes as no surprise that the Italian fashion capital managed to turn up the volume on emerging trends, infusing the bright, look-at-me looks with a brazen brand of amplified beauty.

Instead of punches of pinks and purples staining models' lips as they did in New York, gutsy oranges and blues painted the pouts of Milan's runway stars. The swipes of pastel powders and metallic shadows that decorated the lids at Jeremy Scott and Victoria Beckham, respectively, were intensified into decidedly more opaque and geometric renderings on the runways of Salvatore Ferragamo and Ports 1961. The beauty look of Milan was bright, bold, and hardly blended.

As Allure so accurately put it, color-blocking is spring's biggest makeup trend so far. Unlike in most fashion week seasons, the magazine notes, there hasn't been one singular standout color trend for next spring. Instead, what we've seen is a little bit of everything via brash brushstrokes of red, orange, yellow, green, and blue in their least subtle shades.
