Get your most colorful palettes and lipsticks out of the box, as we will reveal makeup trends, we spotted on SS20 runways and seen after on beauty bloggers. Are you ready?




Neon is still in the makeup game this year as well, as seen on SS20 Oscar De La Renta’s runway. You can find many ways to apply neon eyeshadow, for example, Kuwaiti influencer, Dalal Al-Doub, opted for a neon chunky-looking cat-eyes eyeliner. You can just apply a neon shade or mix as many shades as you want and blending them.




  • Over the Top Eyeliner

Instead of defining your eyelashes line with eyeliner, this summer the eyeliner is coming up in an arch-shape over the eyelids, as featured in Ralph & Russo, Anna Sui and Versace SS20 shows. Kuwaiti beauty expert Fatima Al-Momen, joined the trends and drew the arch eyeliner to form the perfect cats eyes shape.




  • Blush for the eyes

Why have the cheeks blushed, while you can reach your eyelids too? This makeup trend will make you use a blush for both blushing and eyeshadow as seen on Jason Wu and Sies Marjan SS20 runway




  • Sapphire blue

If we have to choose the one eyeshadow color trend, we will definitely pick the sapphire blue, as spotted on LaQuan Smith SS20 show. Many MUAs and beauty bloggers recreated this trend which gives a piercing look, as seen on Kuwaiti actress Shouq Al-Hadi.





  • Bold lips

Bold lips also had a big comeback in SS20; they were seen in dark shades, in red and in rare colors, at Max Mara, Chromat, and Dries Van Noten’s runway. If you're not a big fan of dark lips, you can always opt for flashy shades of red or pink to apply the bold lips trend.
