A Spring 2014 Runway Beauty Review – Susan Posnick

We asked Susan to review some of the world’s leading designers for a spring 2014 runway beauty recap!  Susan shared what to expect when it comes to beauty trends.

Here’s the scoop …..

 

1.       From the DKNY show-

Look for lips and nails in Orange, Tangerine, Pink Grapefruit, Raspberry- bright and ‘tangy.’  Blot the color so it looks more like a richly stained lip.  Eyelid and cheek color is ‘barely there.’

 

2.       From Marc Jacobs & Nars-

The focus for the eyes is on the liner; think teal, turquoise, emerald, amethyst, electric blue.  In a departure from previous years, think  bright colored liner under the bottom lashes  and inside on the water line-top and bottom. For the more faint of heart, smudge the color under the bottom lashes rather than having a clean line. Keep  the entire upper lid soft in color ( pale coral, pink, putty, white).

3.        From Wes Gordon- young designer in demand

Lots of metallic for spring …. think a sweep of copper, bronze, silver, platinum on the entire lid and nothing more- except mascara. Highlight the cheeks with champagne shimmer ( golden or pink) , keeping the lips in softer shades from shimmery nudes to baby pinks and corals with a hint of shimmer. Easy to translate to ‘real life’.

 

4.        The Row, J. Mendel, Narciso

These collections all showed that  ‘effortless makeup’ look – neutrals, nudes, bronzed cheeks, with a touch of illumination.  Its all about healthy, glowing skin that appears not to have makeup on at all.
