Editor’s picks fashion’s key trends explained: filter me up

Colour has changed. No longer are we chasing the pinks and roses of a flushed cheek or bitten lip, today the colour that feels right in beauty is the slightly heightened lilac, or uncanny peach. It’s ­colour as seen through an Instagram filter. It’s that nostalgic light, that image drenched in foreign ­summer. It’s skin, brightened at the base and shaded at the cheek, eyes glossy, lips a satin pop of lavender or coral, something that looks like you’ve been retouched in post, and then a sheer swoosh of powder over the lot for that fake, iPhone perfection.
