My recap of New York Fashion Week has left my mouth jaw-dropped with all the super gorge hair and makeup! Today, I’m going to be focusing on Makeup Makeup Makeup!!! I was amazed and inspired by what’s to come this spring in all things beauty!!! Here is what I scoped out for you to look forward to, and to pull together for your own spring, beauty arsenal!
Words like, Subtle, Retro-Inspired, Soft and Chic, Futuristic, Ultra Feminine, Romanic, Perfectly Balanced, Smoky Brown, Minimalist and Abstract ALL come to mind when I look back and reflect on the mind-blowing makeup I was able to witness!
So, let’s start things off with a bold kick, shall we? Honor sent models down the runway with edgy and unforgettable Cat Eyes in a rich teal shade. This is a summer trend that will be all the rage. Try it yourself this spring, but maybe make it relatable by using a soft teal or navy blue liner, and perhaps try a slimmer, more conservative lined approach at first, if this is way out of your comfort zone! Keep everything else to a minimum; glowing skin and a fresh, nude lip is all that’s needed to pair with those gorge, striking eyes….

Peter Som Spring 2015
Peter Som did something similar, but with a high-gloss lid, and a bold, poppy-red eyeliner smudged underneath. Again, fresh, glowing skin, and a nude lip pairs perfectly with this ultra-mod spring look.

Calvin Klein, Jill Stuart , Carmen Marc Valvo, and Tadashi Shoji are just a few of the many designers that showed us the ever so subtle, soft, and chic look! This will be my prediction as our trendiest, street-style beauty look for spring! This is very easy to recreate on your own; I will definitely be pulling this out of my makeup bag, and dabbing onto my clients faces this spring! I CANNOT WAIT! Hurry up, spring!
Carmen Marc Valvo models were seen wearing this soft and chic feminine look, where an eye-catching white highlight was swept across the lid, and paired with a rich, strawberry lip. And take a peek at those nails! Matte black with a thin, curved, metallic-silver base. I die.

Calvin Klein gave us the ever so simple fresh face. To get this look, CK’s makeup artist dusted a sheer bronze shadow across the top and bottom lash line to give the models faces a sculpted, light, and airy glow!

Lastly, I can’t leave out the ever-so-amazing 60’s mod-inspired makeup that was channeled by so many designers this year! Diane von Fürstenberg was inspired by the French Riviera during the 50’s and 60’s when it was frequented by celebs, such as Brigitte Bardot. Her makeup Artist, Pat McGrath lined the eyes with kohl pencil to achieve this look, and then blended it a bit with a mix of dark brown shadows to create a slightly smudgy, “slept-in smokey eye.” McGrath “didn’t want it to look retro, so [she] didn’t wing it out at all” (harpersbazaar.com). Gorgeous!!
