Make-Up

Colors at New York Fashion Week

By  | 

As Fashion Week started in New York, I started watching the shows as always as an outsider. This fashion week, designers are presenting their Fall/Winter 2017-2018 collections, while a few of them have gone for the newest movement or change, the see-now-buy-now collections.

Talking about Fall, I was expecting some very dark collections, but I was surprised to see so many colors. Colors did not appear only on the designs, but also on the model’s make up, especially on the eye area. In previous seasons, the lips where always in the center of attention and you could see quite some beautiful mixture of shades and shiny lips. By watching some of the shows so far, I noticed some very beautiful colors on the eyes.

At Carolina Herrera, the make up artist opted for what we called earth colors. A light shade of bronze was applied on the eyelids and after it mascara was applied, keeping the look very simple.

At Oscar de la Renta the make up was more daring. Vivid colors were applied on the eyelids like the mauve one seen in the picture below. The mauve eyeshadow was followed by a pink eyeliner, which created the perfect combination. At first glance, it looks like a typical summer make up, but the make up artist shows us that there is no boundary in adding some colors to those Winter grey days…

Moreover, at Prabal Gurung, the graphic eyeliner appeared again, but this time there was no black color. In order to make a difference, the make up artist, opted for colors like green, blue or orange as seen on Joan Small’s make up.

 At Victoria Beckham, the famous make up artist, Pat McGrath, applied only a light shade of grey color. At the show, the main focus was keeping the skin luminous and healthy.

It looks like the make up artists like Pat McGrath at Victoria Beckham, Tom Pecheux at Oscar de la Renta and Diane Kendal at Prabal Gurung and Carolina Herrera are telling us to stop covering our skin with all sorts of foundations or BB creams and let it all bare. This way our skin will look fresh and healthy.
