Yearning for continued connectivity with the world, colours have the power to ground us and bridge gaps at the same time. This season, a resounding theme is to be mindful of well-being and self-care; both emotional and physical, and to embrace differences in society.
Colours can influence our mood – the consensus for Spring-Summer 2023 is do what makes you feel happy, secure and included, and the below colour trends that will emerge for Summer 2022/23 reinforce this.
This tranquil and feminine colour palette featuring lilacs, blush pinks and teals, takes consumers on a dreamy escape from the real world. Translucent and subtly tinted finishes that exude glistening radiance capture the eyes. Formulations using this colour palette skew towards dual or multipurpose, eliminating defined boundaries and yielding “blurred lines.”
This colour scheme provokes thought about the essence of individual natural beauty. The shades are inspired by nature, the human body and ancient civilisations. Rather than hiding our natural state with heavily deposited make up to mask what is underneath, this palette conveys the beauty of human imperfections. Finer particle sized-pearlescent pigments in both natural and synthetic align with this trend, delivering matte to soft sheen effects which enrich facial features. The emotions emitted through the collection are strength, pride and love of oneself.

What better way to brighten the day than to adorn nails, lips and eyes with an uplifting splash of the rainbow? This invigorating trend is overloaded with creativity and diversity, stimulating the senses and creating a positive feeling. This simplistic yet sunny palette can be coupled with two-tone and dimensional effects that command attention. The finish is semi-matte to slight shimmer. Smaller particle, full coverage and cheerful pearls summarise this trend.
