Without changing beauty trends, the multibillion dollar cosmetics industry would crumble like broken powder on bathroom tile. Season after season beauty adjusts with the times and in many cases leads it. The May 2017 issue of Harper’s Bazaar celebrates the latest trends in beauty in a story by Sebastian Faena and Carine Roitfeld featuring amongst others Grace Elizabeth. This season vivid and vibrant, even cinematic are the bywords for the approaches taken to beauty. To that end, the arresting Grace is pictured wearing a strong lip and equally dramatic eye by makeup artists Peter Philips. A trench coat by Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci seals the deal on making this beauty feature something genuinely dramatic rather than a mere exercise in aesthetics.
