Fiery Fuchsia (and Other Hot Hues)

FASHION

This season think pink and check out our favourite warm weather trends

Pink is back in a major way. Scoring as one of the top 10 colours in Pantone’s list for spring/summer 2017, Pink Yarrow was the top of the charts; however, everything from Magenta and Brink Pink to Fuchsia were also out in droves.

In Paris, bright shades of pink dominated the runways. Fashion labels such as Valentino, Hermés, Balenciaga, Givenchy and Ellery among many others, showcased these vibrant hues from head-to-toe.

During New York Fashion Week, vibrant shades of pink were sprinkled throughout the collections of Michael Kors, Jeremy Scott and Cushnie et Ochs in the form of cocktail dresses, trench coats, trousers and even shoes.

With so much runway love, there’s no doubt that our favourite girly shade has grown up and gotten a serious fashion makeover! No longer just for the Elle Woods and Barbie Dolls of the world, pink is bright, cheerful, energetic, enigmatic

Painted Pink Lids

While it’s lovely as blush and fantastic in a lipgloss, pink isn’t the easiest shade to wear as eye makeup. If you apply it wrong, you risk looking sickly or just a bit strange. So how can you take this ultra-trendy shade and make it work?

We found lots of inspiration backstage at our favourite runway shows to turn this tricky hue into a beauty must! The easiest and most wearable look came from Wunderkind, who emphasized their models’ eyes with a dash of neon pink eyeliner. The bright swipe stands out against an otherwise clean complexion.

Not ready to take the pink plunge? Try swiping another neon shade, like orange, green or blue. At Cividini, models were decked out with stripes of fluro coral and a touch of copper glitter for festive eyes meant to be seen, while a cobalt shade at Victoria Beckham (the exact hue is part of Beckham’s collection in collaboration with Esteé Lauder) and electric blue lids at Ports 1961 packed a punch.

    I’m not much of a makeup girl, so I think I’m going to have to stick with the pink clothes. If you look at my closet though, it mostly shades of black, white, gray, and dark blue. I think I have one or two pink shirts. Guess it’s time to expand that collection!

  • Shelby Stover

    Ah I love that pink is making a comeback! it’s so bright, colorful and uplifting!

  • Love, love, love that pink is making a comeback! I’m actually wearing a pink shirt right now!

  • I used to avoid pink as a teen but I like that it’s coming back now. I’m much more open to pink as a adult.

    I love pink but I can’t really do the pink makeup well! The bright pink is a fun color for summer.

    That argyle sweater is spectacular. Pink eyemakeup is surprisingly flattering, especially with a little tan.

    I honestly don’t wear pink, but I do like it on other people. Also a shade of pink on the eyes with a wine eyeshadow and a smokey eye, looks gorgeous.

  • Jos A

    I love the color pink. I don’t think I could get away with it as an eyeshadow, but it’s my go-to lip and blush color.
