At Chanel Fall 2014 Couture Show, models rocked spiky punk hairdos and minimal makeup that consisted of a winged eyeliner with a pop of gold and silver and nude lips. “It’s like modern sculpture, in modern materials, but with baroque elements,” Karl Lagerfeld said backstage. “This is the story of Le Corbusier going to Versailles.”
At Atelier Versace Fall 2014 Couture, the idea was “couture-modern, but also something graphic, aerodynamic, and fun”. As a result, lead makeup artist Pat McGrath created a dramatic two-toned cat eye in shades of teal by first covering the entire lid with a lighter color then contrasting it with a darker shade around the crease and winged towards the temple. Brows were groomed and the lips given a neutral color, which provided the perfect balance. To dupe the look at home, try this instead.
After the Indian-inspired look for Pre-fall 2012, Chanel wowed us once again with a gorrrrrgeous beauty look at the Resort 2015 show in Dubai.

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.
With bridal season in full swing, now is the time to drool over some very pretty dresses and catch up on the latest bridal hair and makeup. At Jenny Packham Bridal Spring 2015 Collection, the look was inspired by photographs of 1930s British society photographer, Madame Yevonde. The photographs’ soft tonal colors and hazy, neoclassical ambiance directly influenced the design and palette of the collection and translating into a romantic hair and makeup look that consisted of earthy colors and a voluminous ponytail.
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.
