David Koma’s spring 2012 collection was based on the idea of a futuristic tribe. Fortunately, makeup took on the futuristic element as opposed to taking the tribal route. Combining finishes such as matte vs gloss, mirroring the finish on the garments created with the use of reflective perspex. A ﬂash of bold colour under the eyes complimented the use of bold colour across the collection.
As well as being perfect for spring beauty, fresh luminous skin is a great winter look too. Products such as MAC Strobe or Clarins Beauty Flash Balm keep skin nourished and protected from the effects of the cold climate combined with indoor heating. Be sure to invest in a good moisturiser for the colder months. A ﬂash of colour on the lower eye lid is a great, quick and easy update to your look and it’s always nice to add some colour when the skies are grey!
