Fashion Week S/S 2014 Runway Makeup Looks and Breakdowns

White eye makeup makes a comeback this spring on the runway. Bands of graphic white liner contrasted a bare face at Kenzo while Altuzarra presented a combo of matte white eyeshadow and red lips to create refined modernism. At Tibi, eyes were rimmed with a shimmery white cream shadow that extended towards the temple for a cat-eye effect and eyes dazzled in a soft, ethereal glow of white and pink at Alice + Olivia.

At Gucci Spring/Summer 2014, the look was athletic with a bit of sexy. Makeup artist Pat McGrath intensified models’ eyes with shimmery brown shadow, copper shadow and black-brown mascara with a touch of Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream for glossiness. The rest of the face was kept bare with clear balm on the lips and foundation one to two shades darker than models’ complexion blended from apple to temple.

After the massive dominance of pink displayed on various fashion blogs this Winter, Spring 2014 brings us a slew of pastels, including Placid Blue, a “picture-perfect, tranquil and reassuring sky blue that induces a sense of peaceful calmness”. Pair it with any neutrals or a bolder hue for an au courant look.
