New York Fashion Week F/W 2015 Makeup Recap

Lindsay Harner, Junior

Ah, Fashion Week. The beautiful clothing, amazing shoes, stunning models, and fabulous makeup.  A time for constantly updating Twitter and Instagram to pore over pictures from the shows and covet the lucky people who were in attendance. New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2015 kicked off on February 12 and ended on February 19, and I’m going to be reviewing all the different hair and makeup looks from New York Fashion Week--the bold, the beautiful, the unique, the colorful, and the many other awe-inspiring looks.

I am a strong supporter the perfect messy braid. It somehow makes you look disheveled yet put together all at the same time. So easy to recreate too-- just braid your hair down the back, use your fingers to pull apart and widen the braid, then pull down some hair in the front to frame the face.

This look may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I loved it.  Everything was kept simple except the eye-catching pop of green all over the eyes and the eyebrows. And this look perfectly suits Jeremy Scott, who is known for his crazy and colorful designs.

Color is so in this season. Mischka’s models wore hardly any makeup to keep the focus on the bold colorful brows, with pastel dip-dye hair to match. I’m happy to say I have a feeling we’re going to be seeing a lot more of these gorgeous soft pastel colors as it gets closer to spring.

I noticed a lot of brown graphic liner looks on Anna Sui’s models.  I thought both the double winged liner (right) and the cool geometric design (left) looked amazing, and helped add to the bohemian vibe of Sui’s clothing.

A lot of Mara Hoffman’s models walked the runways rocking the milkmaid braid. I love this look because it pulls the hair off the face, which shows off the glowy makeup, and the braids add a nice touch to Hoffman’s swimwear.

Last but definitely not least. This is, without a doubt, my favorite makeup look at NYFW. Definitely a simpler look with the neutral eyeshadows and the light contouring, but this simplicity is what I love. The model’s glowing skin is really showcased and her eyebrows=eyebrow goals. And of course I am a little partial to the lips, because I am a huge fan of wine lip colors, so I find her lip color stunning.

 

My prediction for biggest spring/summer trend:

These metallic star face embellishments are fun and feminine. They’re eye catching, but not over the top because of the minimalist makeup the model is wearing. I feel like this look is something you would see at a summer music festival.
