Title:  Kryolan showcasing AW17/17 Trends

Description: Artists Leanne Simmons and Rosie Barrett for Kryolan

Take inspiration from our current AW16/17 Trendlooks, from artists Leanne Simmons and Rosie Barrett.  Space Breeze showcases the futuristic, high-brilliance reflection of the runways and lifestyle of spiritual unburdening, with skin that breathes the pearly, dewy finish and frosted pinks giving the winter blush of cold air.  For this look, muted pastel shades where combined to give the eyes that accent of colour for a soft ethereal look with icy lashes.  Terrestrial Halo represents the fierce majestic powers that embody individualistic.  The powdery pinks, transparent skin and subtle, white contour provide an air of sophistication that in turn enhances the bold statement layers of the perfectly smudged eyes in rich petrol-blue tones.  The richness of Terrestrial Halo was finally defined by matching the lip tones to the ornate, lustrous garnets.
