The most scandalous trend seen on the spring runways? Going naked. Not on your body — on your face! Makeup artists at Chloé, Lanvin and Narciso Rodriguez kept model’s virtually makeup-free, playing up gorgeous, glowing skin. To get the look, use a CC cream (that has a bit more coverage than a BB) to create a flawless look with a natural finish.

This spring, blue and turquoise shadows make a splash in a big way. The aquamarine hues at Giorgio Armani, Céline and Prada were simply eye-catching. Balance the look with either minimal makeup or peachy shades on lips and cheeks for a fresh finish.

The feline frenzy continues – pouncing straight into spring. Models at Missoni, Marc Jacobs and Stella McCartney sported a fresh take on classic cat eyes: liner that wings out in both inner and outer corner of the eyes. Opt for waterproof kohl or liquid liners to prevent inner wing from smudging.

The hair trend that the ruled the runway? Majestic crown braids seen at Neem Khan, Rebecca Minkoff and Nicole Miller. To keep the look modern for spring, stylists created textured braids with loose wispy pieces that were more romantic and flattering. DIY: Create a braid then use the end of a rat-tail comb to gently pull out strands before wrapping over the head.

Ponytails never go out of style but here’s the low-down on the look for spring: keep them sleek and low-set. Starting with a smooth blow-out, then securing hair at the base of the head will deliver the same drama seen at Lanvin, Jason Wu and Valentino.

One top hair trend for spring will have us bidding bye-bye to bad hair forever! Models at Michael Kors, Rochas and Tom Ford strutted down the runway with seriously mussed up ‘dos. Stylists made their deconstruction, yet fresh, creations by combination of structure-meets-messy. Recreate the look easily with a fringe-y French twist paired with a teased crown.
