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 The Blonds A/W 2015, over-the-top 3D nails were paired with a relatively stripped down makeup look of white eyeliner and nude, contoured faces.
With vague references to mythology and Indian culture, the Libertine A/W 2015 collection centered around a beauty look that consisted of a dramatic cat eye and heavily adorned nails.
To go with the Congo Jungle inspired elements in the Christian Siriano A/W 2015 collection, models were given tropical eye makeup in shades of plum and yellow, a customized hunter green to black ombre nail and “three-dimensional graphic” hair.
Spanish brand Desigual continued its awesome nail art streak at the A/W 2015 show with a look that was “inspired by an artist’s sketch board, mood board, color stains and brush strokes”. To get the vibrant artsy look, manicurist Keri Blair first mixed M·A·C Studio Nail Lacquers in Before Dawn, Vestral White and Quiet Time for a khaki, grey-green base color before adding layers of gouache paint with a fan brush, toothpicks, mascara wands and straws. Next, she applied M·A·C Studio Nail Lacquer in Sparkledust using a dry-brush technique and finished with M·A·C Studio Nail Lacquers in Nocturnelle and Vestral White for extra texture and dimension.
Inspired by the joy of flight, the Tadashi Shoji A/W 2015 collection evoked a feeling of weightlessness and aerodynamic seaming that inspirits movement. This translated into a gorgeous beauty look with gold glittery eyes, glossy lips and a sponged nail.
