Let's look into the crystal ball. Makeup-wise, what's going to happen in the year ahead?
The look for Spring/Summer is all about the modern-day hippie: burnt orange and terracotta tones, very diffused eye makeup – almost like eyeshadow meeting the blush on the cheek on a golden skin tone.
For next season, we're going to see lips become more feminine and playful than ever before. Lip art is the new nail art – whether it's ombré, two-toned, liquid metallics or adorning the lips with diamantés.
What is Smashbox up to for the rest of the year?
We've just collaborated with Shay Mitchell for the Smashbox Cover Shot palettes. It was an incredibly fun experience working with her on the shoot, conceptualising with her beauty team to show the seven different sides of Shay according to the seven different palettes. Smashbox has also teamed up with makeup artist Vlada Haggerty, who is known on Instagram for her lip art. As our new lipstick Editor-in-Chief, she'll work her magic on Smashbox's lip collections and next month, we'll both go on a tour, sharing lip art all over the globe.
