Colour Blocking Is the Latest Beauty Trend From Fashion Week

Dacy Knight

We've witnessed a strong lineup of runway beauty looks to get excited about this spring 2017 season and are taking note of the most important trends. Coming on the heels of New York's bright eyes and look-at-me lips, Milan served up its own bolder reiteration. It comes as no surprise that the Italian fashion capital managed to turn up the volume on both the "bright" and "look-at-me" aspects of the emerging trends, infusing the look with its own 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 walkers. 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.

Ergo, Allure just declared colour blocking to be spring's biggest makeup trend so far. In the article, they note that unlike most fashion week seasons there hasn't been one singular standout colour trending. Instead what we've seen is a little bit of everything in brash brushstrokes of red, orange, yellow, green, and blue in their least subtle shades.

Scroll on to see our favourite colour blocking looks from Milan fashion week.
