Inspired by the feminine villains of classic comic books, the look at The Blonds A/W ’14 was all about dramatic lips, bold brows and out-there nails.
Inspired by strong women warriors, the look at Nicole Miller A/W ’14 was all about dark plum, light olive, wine, aqua and black paired with muted jewel tones. This called for a beauty look that was equally dramatic with shades of black, blue and purple diffused over the lids and a fiery red and black nail.
At Creatures of the Wind A/W 2014, the look revolved around a pop of blue liner on the lower lashline and nude marble nails.
Last night at the 2013 American Music Awards, singer Katy Perry rocked a cute polka dot Oscar de la Renta strapless gown with matching nails and her signature red lip.
Graphic elements have been a popular trend on the runways in the past seasons and at Manish Arora Spring/Summer 2014, makeup artist Kabuki and manicurist Marian Newman working for M·A·C Cosmetics created a “1920’s Josephine Baker meets 1990’s raver” look to go with the bright clothing in the collection.
At Nicole Miller Spring/Summer 2014, the inspiration came from the opulence, glamour and beauty of Versailles – the gardens, mirrors, mazes and chandeliers. As a result, makeup artist James Kaliardos working for M·A·C Cosmetics created a bright violet lip while Katie Jane Hughes, butter LONDON Global Colour Ambassador, gave models a glittery ombre nail.
