Along with the Kenzo beauty look from their S/S collection which I illustrated here, here are some other makeup looks from major designers this year so far. My overall impression of beauty from most major collections this year is there being a focus on perfect dewy skin, contouring, natural makeup and natural eyebrows, but there were a few statement exceptions which I covered here, as pops of bright colours or graphic eyeliner shapes were still fairly common. False eyelashes were (if used at all) usually very delicate and natural-looking ones apart from the 60s looking individual lashes used in the Jeremy Scott collection. The only collection were I noticed a strong eye AND strong lip was Fendi, who teamed a dramatic use of eyeliner along with a rose gold glitter lip.
I did a little write up about each look under the cut below to go into more detail. I hope that it inspires you over the summer, as a few of these are very wearable, and even some of the more theatrical looks would be great for the right occasion.
A late Valentine’s Day watercolour painting I did while half-watching a film about Nazi zombies, as you do. I seem to draw best while I have some film on in the background, though they become more like audiobooks to me. My family jokes that the test of a good film is whether I draw through it or not. It helps to give your eyes (and your brain) some kind of a break from staring intensely at a piece of paper every so often, even if it is to look at Nazi zombies creating havoc.
It’s based on an editorial photo of Daphne Groeneveld by Txema Yeste for Harper’s Bazaar Spain which I loved, but I wanted to bring more of a Schiaparelli feeling to it and make the lips stand out as being heart-shaped.
As always, I’m on instagram and love to hear from you. Please feel free to send me suggestions for what to draw, because honestly I draw constantly and compulsively.
