Male Makeup Is The Beauty Trend For 2016 That All Guys Need To Know About
Finally the guys are getting a go with bold beauty
Male makeup has been creeping back into the mainstream for a while now, with more and more products popping up on the high street specifically for guys who want to dabble in the world of grooming.
But from the looks of the AW16 styling exhibiting at London Collections Men this week, next season is going to be even bigger for boys who like the idea of adding some colour into their beauty regimes, with bold and punchy makeup looks for men coming out as one of the clearest trends we saw popping up all over the runway.
It's not just your bog standard defined brows and air brushed complexions either, and instead we see makeup artists across the board really experimenting with bold, layered colour, big bright hair and pools of glitter and shimmer.
Among the designers leading the way on this are Burberry and newcomer Charles Jeffrey, both very different brands but who each took explosive and very different approaches on the beauty front.
First up is Burberry and with the show taking place as the tragic news about David Bowie's death broke, it was the perfect tribute to see them really embracing a Ziggy Stardust inspired aesthetic.
With big 70s bed head on the models, lead Burberry makeup artist Wendy Rowe added in tiny star shaped bursts of glitter around their eyes like tiny streams of shining tears.
At the other end of the scale was Charles Jeffrey: LOVERBOY, who showed a totally kickass collection with a punky, urban aesthetic and clubwear edge.
With a totally gender fluid approach to fashion, it makes total sense to see this feeling flowing straight into the accompanying hair and makeup looks.
Using MAC products, MUAs including Lucy Bridge concoted some amazing paint pot looks with a bright and almost clownish feel.
Clashing up the colours, it's all about smudgy pink lips with bright blues, yellows and hot pinks on the eyes, all of which is pulled together with clumpy mascara and streaks of gold.
Of course you don't have to go quite this extreme in real life if you don't want to, but it's a pretty covetable bit of inspo when it comes to working colour into your look, no matter what gender you are.
