The Most Wearable Makeup Looks from NYFW
Contrary to popular belief, New York Fashion Week is not just about the clothes and collections. Beauty plays a major role in completing the look and influencing trends for the coming season. Click through to see our six favorite makeup looks that could be worn in real life.
Lead makeup artist Dirk Page created a beautiful, subdued sun-kissed look for the Michael Kors runway show. We love his use of bronzer on the cheeks and eyes. A touch of grease creates a dewy glow.
The “no makeup” makeup look has been a major trend. Victoria Beckham knows how to accomplish this with a touch of blush and brown shadow swiped on the lids with the fingertips. Full, natural eyebrows are the finishing touch to this low-maintenance makeup—something we love for busy days!
Mod ’60s Eyes
One of the boldest looks we saw at NYFW Spring ’15 was graphic liner. At the Nanette Lepore show, lead makeup artist Grace Lee channeled the mod 1960s with white eyeliner and chunky, fringe lashes. If white is a bit bold for your liking, try a blue or periwinkle shade. The key is to make your eyes pop!
Brows are a focal point for the face these days, whether they are full—or in Badgley Mischka’s case—bright. Candy-colored brows by lead makeup artist Tom Pecheux were future perfect. He used MAC cosmetics eye shadows on the brows and left the rest of the face bare. This is a look for the daring. To make it more wearable, color the eyebrows with something a bit dark, such as a deep plum or navy blue.
All Over Minimal
Hugo Boss walked girls with a minimal look. Makeup artist Pat McGrath used a soft khaki color swept over the eyes, with a touch of beige inside the tear duct, to make them twinkle. The bridge of the nose and upper lip were highlighted, giving a fresh-faced, youthful look.
Pat McGarth was hard at work this season. She created the Diesel look, combining two opposite makeup trends. Black liquid eyeliner created a dramatic cat eye, but it was offset with dewy skin. A clear lip balm was dabbed on the lips to emphasis natural lip color.
