Bright pink is the must-color!

Bright pink is the must-color for spring summer 2016. Make-up artist Lottie tells us more about it. Watch the video and/or read the interview with Lottie and try it out yourself!

Today we did a graphic pink eye, two times. So we have a lighter pink underneath the eyes and a sort of fuchsia pink on the top. The clothes are very beautiful. Beautiful and relaxed. So we wanted something that was going to be a little vibrant and a new balance with the neutral palette which is in the show.

What did you use for the skin?

Our sponsor today is Orlane Paris which is an amazing skin line. We used their Orlane moisturizer [Orlane Super-Moisturizing Light Cream]. So that is why they all are very glowy. And the foundation is also Orlane Paris [Teint Absolu Treatment Foundation]. It is really nice because it still looks like skin. Everyone looks perfect. They have a nice glow.

On the cheeks?

On the cheeks we used Anastasia Beverly Hills. It is actually a contour color. And we used Warm Coral.

It this look going to be a trend for next summer?

I hope so. Everybody likes to use color in the summer.

It is all about looking healthy

We caught up with key make-up artist Lottie backstage at the Angelo Marani SS 2016 fashion show. Lottie told us about the trends for spring summer 2016. The focus is on the skin. It is all about looking really healthy. Watch the video or read the interview to discover the newest make-up trends.

So today again we are sponsored by Orlane Paris which is amazing high-end skincare. The look is very fresh. The girls look super young, super hip, a little bit rock, not too much. Very little make-up. It is more about the skin today. Making them just super awake and fresh. Again I use the word ‘fresh’.

We are using Orlane moisturizer [Orlane Super-Moisturizing Light Cream], eye cream and foundation [Teint Absolu Treatment Foundation], which I told you about the other day. The foundation is like magic. Looks like skin, looks like nothing. And then we are using the bronzer [Orlane Pressed Powder]. Super natural. We are using that really soft, around the whole face, because it is spring summer. So the have a little bit of glow. That is it. A little tiny brown eyeliner on the inside, just a little. It looks like they have something on but not too much.

We are at the end of the Milan Fashion Week SS 2016. Do you see some general trends?

I would say the strongest trend for SS 2016 is minimal make-up. We did have a lot of shows that had pink. Even one of my shows had bright pink eye. And I saw couple of others. So there is a few with popsicle colors. I think pink is the strongest trend. But the rest is very clean and natural. I think it is all about looking really healthy.

Make-up trend SS 2016: a fresh complexion and a touch of color

Make-up artist Lloyd Simmons tells us about the make-up look at the Anteprima Spring Summer 2016 fashion show. Watch the video interview or read the interview below.

What we wanted here was to have fun but still be very fresh. So it all about this beautiful, gorgeous, gleaming complexion, super healthy and then why not have fun and put some color, an abstract color, somewhere on the face, wherever you want, just to liven up your face. So that is basically what I did. Add a little bit of drama, without being too serious, just having fun.

Are we going to use a lot of color next summer?

I think so. I think the trend for people is basically to pick whatever they like. So people who like color, should do color, and people who like red lips, they should do red lips. It is more like mixing and matching and choosing, just what you feel like.

The skin is beautiful. What did you use?

We tried to use as little foundation as possible, but sometimes we use the tiniest little bit. And we like to highlight with a sort of a shimmer just along the bridge of the nose, above the mouth and around the side of the face. Just to give a little highlight. Keep everything minimal and fresh. That looks modern.

Thank you, Lloyd.
