Backstage at Carmen Marc Valvo Spring/Summer 2014, the beauty look was inspired by tribal motifs that were evident in the luxe fabrics and intricate embellishments of the collection. This translated to polished, soft-matte skin, graphic eyeliner with a dash of shimmer on the lid, nude lips with a chic dip-dyed bob and French nails with a twist.
To complement the feminine, delicate dresses at Tadashi Shoji S/S 2014 show, models were given flowy hair, romantic makeup and shiny nails.
Blue eyeshadow is all the rage this spring/summer and at the Chanel Resort 2014 show in Singapore, Peter Philips showed us a beautiful graphic eye with black and an electric blue that is simply perfect!
Using NARS Cosmetics, makeup artist Val Garland created an eye look at Roland Mouret A/W 2013 with a gorgeous side profile shape. “The eyelid is traced with black and clean in the middle, but not too perfect – there’s a greyness to keep it modern. It is literally the way a girl would wear her makeup now to go out, with the lip color dabbed on but not perfectly applied – it’s cooler that way.” said Val.
For the third season, Estée Lauder sponsored the beauty look at the Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2013 show. “Anthony’s collection is bold, graphic, a strong statement in black and white. I created a monochromatic makeup look with a strong focus on lips, using deep burgundy, and repeated it on lids for moody eyes. This intense pop of color is striking against perfectly matte skin, pale and translucent.” said Tom Pecheux, Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director.
At Creatures of the Wind A/W 2013, NARS Director of Global Artistry James Boehmer created a makeup look that complements the collection by adding a new element. “You see the pearl on their cheeks, and an angular line that almost makes the look hard and not so feminine, like a Teddy girl in the UK after World War II. I also wanted to balance Chris and Shane’s inspiration of artificiality, and candy, by creating a look that had a combination of matte and pearl but no real sense of contour, depth or color.” said James.
