Golden Girls:Golden girls makeup at Christiaan Salon and Day Spa, Providence, RI

If it isn’t already, let bronzer become your best friend for summer – inspired by the tanned skin at Topshop Unique, Michael Kors, House of Holland and Donna Karan, where a Seventies-style glow looked brand new again. There was also a Studio 54 vibe to the bronze eyes at the likes of Jason Wu, whilst a gilded beauty was on show at Christian Dior and Dries Van Noten via golden brows and gold-leaf partings respectively.




 Hot Lips:

Bright, matte lips packed a punch at Altuzarra, Rag & Bone and Prabal Gurung, and the message got through to London Fashion. Week two, with scarlet pouts at Mary Katrantzou, Antonio Berardi and House of Holland.

If there’s one up-do to wear this season it’s the twist, ideally casually disheveled as at Tom Ford, Rochas, Giambattista Valli and Michael Kors.










Straighten Up:

Say goodbye to the big, bouncy blow-dry – it’s time to get your straighteners out again according to Chloé, Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren and Miu Miu. There was also a distinct lack of volumised roots on the catwalk, with hair slicked close to the scalp at Marc by Marc Jacobs, Anthony Vaccarello, Valentino and Prabal Gurung.


Sheer Shadow: Sheer Shadow Makeup, Christiaan Salon and DaySpa, Providence

A wash of shadow around the eyes made for a pretty, summer alternative to the smoky eye, coming in pastel hues at Burberry, Rochas and Dolce & Gabbana and in nude shades to add subtle definition at Giambattista Valli, Emilio Pucci and Ruffian. And if there’s only one colour to wear this spring? Blue. We dare you.
