As fashion month draws to a close, we round up our favourite backstage beauty looks from the SS17 catwalks. From ear painting to rainbow hair, we’ve got a lot to take inspo from when it comes to switching up our style next spring…


Fashion met Snapchat at the Desigual SS17 show, with models wearing flower crown accessories and puppy dog face paint, to bring all of our favourite filters to life. Genius!

Ashish drenched the runway in some serious Bollywood beauty, combining jewels, bold eye make-up and heaps of glamour.

Mimi Wade

As if we weren’t already tempted to try the rainbow hair trend, Mimi Wade convinced us to try it when we saw her models’ multicoloured hair look.

Anna Sui

It might sound like a bad idea, but the smoky pink eye seen backstage at Anna Sui shows us that pink eyeshadow can be very wearable. We’ll definitely be mastering this in time for the spring sunshine!

Although a deep berry hue might be more suitable for winter, DKNY dressed up this super-bold look with glitter for a statement pout that’s appropriate all year round.

Proenza Schouler

Models’ ears were painted a variety of colours for the Proenza Schouler show and acccessorised with HUGE earrings to finish off the look.

Alexander Wang

Fancy going blonde for summer? Alexander Wang says YES. Models had their hair bleached and chopped into for a platinum-blonde surfer-inspired ’do.

Cushnie Et Ochs

If you’re into lippy, you’ll be pleased to hear that two-tone lips are FINALLY a thing – and we’re not just talking ombré. SS17 is all about switching up your lip colour and applying different shades on top and bottom lips. Just be careful not to rub lips together!


Models had their faces and bodies embellished with flowers at the Preen show, which may be a teeny bit impractical – but still SO pretty.
