Fashion possesses particular ways of interpreting itself into many different areas of our lives, influencing an array of things accomplished on a daily basis.

For example, fashion can determine a mood, an emotion, an appearance, and certainly your choice of make-up.

This is highlighted particularly in beauty trends this season, with some seriously standout styles boasting an overriding impact on the world of beauty.

The ‘glorious technicolour’ and ‘bursting bouquet’ looks translated their mass appeal onto the faces that glided down the spring/summer ’14 runways, and have now stylishly (and affordably) sprung onto the market for our very own slice of designer-inspired beauty pleasure.

Glorious Technicolour

Make-up is an art form, and this was abundantly clear when witnessing the beauty artists’ creations at the likes of Chanel, who paid homage to the art world by applying a wonderful array of striking rainbow hues across not only faces, but hair and nails too.

Dazzling, psychedelic creations were achieved using ‘face paints’ mainly around the eye area in playful brushstrokes on to the lids and just under the lash line.

Eyes were framed by filling in brows with black pencil, lined lashes in inky eyeliner and followed by mascara.

To achieve an eye-catching, colourful look at home, opt for any or all of the following…

  • Estee Lauder Pure Colour Stay-On Shadow Paint in Neon Fuchsia, £19, Boots
  • Topshop Nails in High Voltage nail varnish, £5, Topshop
  • Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Gloss Stick in Coral Reef, £17, Boots
  • MAC Powder Blush/Pro Palette Refill Pan, £15, Beales

Bursting bouquet

Cultivating a flower-strewn spring/summer, designers turned green-fingered with an explosion of florals, encompassing the whole range from pretty pastels, techno sport, appliquéd blossoms and illustrated petals.

Fashion’s Garden of Eden grew on the beauty industry, revealing what was to be a botanical takeover across checks, lips and eyes. Burberry executed this look beautifully, applying Sheer Concealer Fresh Glow, new BB Cream and Sheer Powder to create glowing summer skin.

Cheeks were adorned with the Light Glow in Earthy Blush and Misty Blush, while the rosy ‘suede-textured’ eyes were defined with Sheer Eye Shadow in Tea Rose.

Key elements when interpreting this feminine floral-inspired trend are focusing on glossy, dewy lips and subtle yet striking cheeks, leaving the eyes to appear very natural with just a hint of pastel hue embedded in the sockets.

The essence of flowers inspired nails too, and with Ciate’s dreamy Flower Manicure set, £18, you can decorate your digits in iddy-biddy bouquets. Rimmel offer a fantastic range of nail pastel hues, but one of my favourites is Rimmel London Rita Ora 60 Seconds Nail Polish in ‘Pillow Talk’, £4.

Nails Inc present their floral-inspired polish ‘Chelsea Embankment Gardens’, £12, and turning our attention to fragrance, Marc Jacobs has released his latest Daisy incarnation with ‘Eau So Fresh Delight Edition’ £52, encapsulating an added hit of blood orange and tiare Tahiti. This whimsical fruity floral is happiness bottled.

Give these runway-inspired beauty trends a go to stay super stylish!
