Runway Makeup Looks, Tutorials and Application Tips

Looking at all these spring beauty trends and runway pictures has got me wanting to wear spring makeup already!

Below is a face I just did inspired by the look at the Nicole Farhi Spring 2010 show. Since my skintone is different from the models, I opted for a different green on the lower eye to match with my shirt instead. When is spring going to come?!


Pastel Purple with Teal eyeshadow and Nude Lips FOTD

Look#1: Underground Society
An aerodynamically misplaced streak of liner. A lip packed in Pigment or duo-chromatically constructed… a hardass brow. “It’s more of an attempt to project an attitude of individuality and a sense of ownership than about looking gorgeous in any traditional sense,” explains Terry Barber.


Of difference: we’re at a moment in beauty when identikit perfection looks positively passé. Touching on tribal elements with striking originality (Underground Society), taking a couture approach to nude makeup (Pale ‘N’ Dandy), feeling the heat of a carefree, sun-warmed vibe (American Nomad) or getting creative with the murano-glass palette being passed about (Dye-A-Tribe) feels eminently more interesting and appropriate. “The essential point with makeup this season is that it’s about projecting emotion and attitude, about not looking the same as everyone else,” explains Terry Barber.
