After a year of spider lashes, natural hair and rosy cheeks, makeup artist Gucci Westman is looking forward to what's coming in the new year, inspired by the runway. Just remember, she says, "each of these trends should be interpreted, re-imagined and personalized. It's not about re-creating a full look, but a rendering of." Here, what to look out for in 2017.
"A lot of the fashion industry looks to Prada as the biggest trend-setting show. This season, the models wore a youthful clean face with simple boyish, wet hair. I love a side part, a kind of French coquette."
Flawless, Simple Makeup
"There is also the Gucci girl, who is a bit more whimsical and spontaneous. She might have just a flawless complexion and a nude lip, or a flawless, mannequin-looking face with a pop of an off, unexpected color. The accessories and palette of the clothing is a lot, so you don't need much."
Good Skin, Always
"Gorgeous, natural skin will be a trend. Start with SK-II’s new GenOptics Aura Essence for beautiful, luminous skin. Next use La Mer’s Foundation for added luminous, followed by NARS Copacobana stick for some highlight. Some rose-colored cream blush would be the next step, very subtle, then Chanel rose-colored lip liner and lip stick, and a matte Tom Ford shadow on the upper lid, brown liner dug into bottom lashes. Lastly, groom brows, and add a bit of Tom Ford contour under cheekbones."
A Bold Lip
"A coral, purple-hued or fuchsia lip will be big. I love gorgeous, snowy skin with beautiful highlights and a tiny hint of a soft rose cheek. Then a very dark bordeaux or oxblood lip, even a touch of black in the color is amazing. Chanel has incredible colors."
"I also like the idea of a girl in blue shadow, blue mascara and a Faye-Dunaway lip."
Sun-Kissed, Natural Beauty
"Lastly I would say sun-kissed with freckles and a stained lip."
