A little bit of 60s with Lady Caroline Blackwood was the idea behind the gorgeous gray shadow, lashes and pink lips at Ruffian Spring/Summer ’14. The look, consisting of a dash of pink and gray shadow (March Mist and Particularly Pretty from MAC Spring/Summer 2014 Forecast Eye Palette) along with a dab of peachy lip color (Trendy Twist from MAC Spring/Summer 2014 Forecast Lip Palette), is not only simple but so wearable for spring! And did I mention that super cool minimalistic crescent manicure in nude and purple?
Looks like Chanel is continuing its color streak from Spring all the way to Fall. At the Chanel A/W 2014 show, models showed off full brows and flawless skin (courtesy of the upcoming The Complexion Perfection Lumiere Velvet Foundation) paired with a dab of Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Canaille on the cheeks and a silvery eye contrasted with a colorful wing in shades of pink, green, orange and blue. How cool!
At the Lanvin A/W ’14 show, makeup artist Pat McGrath revisited the smudgy eye makeup look at Chanel Fall 2010 and gave it a twist. Models’ lids were covered with a cream-based black liner that was smudged out and faux lashes that were cut clean and square were added for contrast.
Makeup artist Pat McGrath never ceases to amaze me with her skills and creativity and at the Dior A/W 2014 show, she created a high-impact graphic glitter eye in shades of blue and khaki using theatrical latex paint.
At Anthony Vaccarello A/W ’14, the look was all about a graphic eye in shades of red and black. “Anthony’s collection is graphic and modern, edged with accents of color. I created a makeup look in the style of graphic fashion illustrations with ultrafine lines of black and red to accent the eye. The look is sophisticated and arty cool.” explained lead artist Tom Pecheux, Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director.
At Missoni A/W 2014, makeup artist Lucia Pieroni created “cool girls in their boyfriends’ coats, at the bus stop at 6 in the morning” with blocks of graphic eyeliner and dewy skin.
