We’ve all got our default makeup looks. The foolproof equation that we run to daily? Groomed brows, a little mascara and a little color on the cheeks and lips to keep us looking fresh. A no-brainer, really. But every time and again, the creatures of habit within us catch a wave of inspiration and itch to ride the beauty bandwagon. The current looks on our to-try list: runway beauty from 2016’s Spring/Summer shows.
Thankfully, online shopping has brought us an array of accessible makeup options that can help us turn our beauty pegs into reality. Here, we round up the must-have products for copping the season’s trending beauty looks, for both the broke girl and the big spender.
