A look at five more of the spring 2015 beauty looks that caught our eye in New York
We were backstage at dozens of NYFW shows, and already can’t wait for spring. Here is a little preview of some top beauty looks from the week.
We are counting down until JINsoon releases the totally alluring and as-yet-unnamed “moody” green Jin Soon Choi used on the girls at Karen Walker, where the inspo was eccentric UK society ladies who garden in haute couture. The flouncy hair by Bumble and Bumble and glowing pink makeup by Benjamin Puckey for Sephora also just feels like spring.
It’s no surprise Carolina Herrera’s chosen beauty look had super classic touches, but just like the designer’s creations, there was a twist. And that was the molded and sculpted sumo-inspired hair by Orlando Pita. The Old Hollywood touches came in the form of a range of red lips using five classic MAC shades and a brick red Essie manicure by Michelle Saunders that she says actually felt like the most neutral nail choice when paired with the clothes.
Manicurist Nonie Creme for beauty.com created the effect of polka dots in 3-D with pearl beads painstakingly applied to a cobalt blue nail she mixed herself. (Watch out for more news of Creme’s new upcoming beauty line soon.) They purposely didn’t match the electric blue cat eye models also sported and also contrasted the neon-sherbet-hued clothing—a trend she’s into for spring.
Braids went next-next level when Wella’s Eugene Souleiman created a five-strand rope-ish iteration (that requires at least two people) he didn’t even know what to call it for Karan’s Spanish Harlem- and Basquiat-inspired collection. Charlotte Tilbury’s minimalist makeup—using chocolate brown MAC mascara—highlights the forthcoming trends of a softer lash and actual no-makeup makeup. Deborah Lippmann’s “mannequin hand” manicures using Like Dreamers Do, a pale bisque, furthers that effect.
Marc by Marc Jacobs
Redken’s Guido Palau took Marc by Marc Jacobs’ rave culture inspiration along with singer Bjork into consideration when giving his models mohawks made of tiny twisted buns for a punkish, young and innocent look. That vibe was also reflected in the minimal makeup Diane Kendal (using Marc Jacobs Beauty) conceived, which was centered around a brushed-up brow—she uses a wig brush—and pearly white eye.
