At Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2016, the beauty look is all about downtown chic. “It’s the East Village girl who’s been out all night,” explained François Nars. “Marc wanted them to look a little worn, so we created a look with too much mascara, just the right amount of color, no foundation, and dark circles under the eyes. There’s a lot of shine on the cheeks and eyes – they almost look greasy and a bit tired, but still so beautiful.”
At Diane von Furstenberg Spring/Summer 2016, lead artist Pat McGrath gave models a gorgeous mermaid eye to go with the ’70s nightlife inspired collection. The eyes were first rimmed with aquamarine shadow using a damp brush before a seafoam color was blended over it up to the crease and under the eyes. Lots and lots of mascara helped define the eyes while the rest of the face was kept fresh with just a hint of peach blush, highlighter along the cheekbones and balm on the lips.
Inspired by Cleopatra, the Sphinx and various elements of Egyptology, The Blonds Spring/Summer 2016 Collection brought us a beauty look that is glistening and decadent.
At Nanette Lepore Spring/Summer 2016, Stila Global Director of Creative Artistry Sarah Lucero created a fun look with bold colors on the eyes against fresh skin and natural lips.
At Creatures of the Wind Spring/Summer 2016, models rocked a Siouxsie Sioux inspired glam rock look. “She always had a very strong eye look – it had the same spirit, but was applied differently each time. The look is very eclectic with a lot of layering, which plays off the layering in the collection. It’s punk, tough looking. I loved the richness of the gold against the toughness of the black. It’s an updated, modernized take on eyeliner,” explained de Mey.
At Atelier Versace Fall 2015 Couture, lead artist Pat McGrath ditched the signature Donatella Versace-esque smoky eyes and heavy liner and gave models a lighter look that consisted of metallic green eyes (try MAC Mineralize Eyeshadow Pinwheel in In The Meadow) and peachy lips to go with the 70’s rock ‘n roll wavy hair. The end result? A gorgeous romantic look that anyone can pull off.
