Makeup Trend Alert: Spirited Away

Announcing new season trends at their anticipated annual congress, Aveda serves up playful punk and kaleidoscope colour for 2016.

A New Year of excitement and optimism is on the cards with vivid hues revealing the spirited side of Aveda colour across both its hair and makeup offerings: representing the spirit of the Aveda tribe and the spirit within each of us.

Drawing inspiration from the colourful geometric shapes in a kaleidoscope, Janell Geason, Aveda Global Artistic Director, Makeup, applied random blocks of bold colour under the eyes for a tribal-meets-punk vibe.

“I wanted to be playful and push the colour until it was almost too much,” said Geason of the look.
