When PANTONE named 'ultra violet' colour of the year for 2018 we knew we would be seeing pops of purple everywhere... and we weren't disappointed.
Ice cream colours were all over the Spring Summer 18 catwalks, with designers such as Victoria Beckham and Preen really embracing the pretty pastels, sending out full lilac looks.
It didn't stop there - show stopping beauty creations have also been gracing the runways with top make up artists adding this luscious lilac and pink hues to their models faces to make some really soft and beautiful looks.
From left to right - Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui, Marni, Dior.
On key with beauty trends as always Gloria Mcglashan @makeupartistglo held a Masterclass at Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar and demonstrated the most divine look with a trendsetting lilac eye.
We were lucky enough to get tickets to the sell out event but for those who didn't we are giving a product break down of the show stopping look.
