The common theme at the New York, London and Milan Fashion Weeks were unique designs and diverse beauty. Low-key make-up and nails took over the ramp and the natural hair trends were happily embraced, repeatedly. With minimal beauty looks like these, one could spot all kinds of embellishments from gemstones on faces to flower hair adornments. But there was also some shiny eyeshadow spotted at the Milan Fashion Week. As you wait for AIFW Spring/Summer 2018, get inspired by these creative international Spring 2018 beauty trends.
Think of this trend as a finger or thumb stroking. Take a colour of your choice and just swipe it through your lash line. It doesn’t have to exactly match the other eye, it can be a sister stroke as well. It’s a rounded cat-eye and you can use your finger or brush to apply it. Selena Gomez has already said yes to this look and now you go, party hard with this easy breezy eyeliner trend.
You may or may not be a fan of flower crowns, accessories or jewellery but there’s no denying that if styled well, these blooms can give you a perfectly delicate hairstyle. Placement options are many in updos and braids. It’s one of the best looks to don for an occasion like a wedding or Diwali party. And you can choose to wear the style like Jennifer Lawrence when attending a formal wedding or maybe just a clip like Kristen Dunst.
We have had our time with classic black then we moved on to glitter eyeliners and finally, now it’s the right time for striking colours to step in and take the liner game to the next level. Go for winged eyeliner like Missoni or smudge it like Tadashi Shoji but these electric colours are sure to grab attention at a night out.
If a classic red lip seems too stark, this is what you’ve been looking for. It gives a just-bitten effect at the edges and gives a naturally-glossy look to the lips. Wear it to brunch and let your pout talk!
Fashion week was ruled by minimalist manicures. While some opted for subtle solid colours, one could also spot that instead of a blank flesh-toned or transparent look, skinny-stripes as minimal nail art was sported by many. It’s easy to recreate and can be comfortably worn at formal locations or formal events.

Braids were popular on stage and no, this time we aren’t looking at a classic three-strand but multiple variations which were striking and fresh. Be it artful layering, multiple braids or tied up in fluorescent bungees, they were all super chic styles which you would love to recreate throughout the festive season.

Bedazzling lids? Why not. Designers were all up for it and sure, you wouldn’t want to show up for your meetings in gems and pearls glued to your eyes but you can try the look for a theme party or for a fun concert maybe.
