Summers are setting in and thankfully less is more makeup is still on a high! The beauty look at spring/summer 2015 runways was not constant or similar from New York to Paris. For instance, sleek clean eye liner made as much of an impact in shows as did heavy charcoal eyes. Over all less makeup on face was everywhere and some bright colors are making more of a statement now than last year! Most influential makeup, Pat McGrath puts it perfectly “This isn’t a girl who’s sitting around wondering if she looks perfect. This is a girl that’s lived.”
1. Bare Minimum:
Marc Jacobs at his spring/summer ready-to-wear (RTW) 2015, asked for absolutely no makeup, shocking for the fashion world to put this raw image on the runway. Others like Victoria Beckham, Channel and Jason Wu focused on dewy clean skin.
2. Lip service:
The orange-reds filled liveliness into the shows with Burberry, Zac Posen and Missoni. The face is clean with minimal contouring on the face/cheeks, tight lining the eyes with various reds on the pouts.
Flirty berry shades also followed at Dolce and Gabbana and Number 21 which reinstates lips will be focus this season.
The ladylike look with sleek and slightly winged was seen at Oscar De La Renta, Saint Laurant, Marchesa and Emillio Pucci. The face was kept simple.
Louis Vuitton was quite artistic with drawing flicks around the eye, where as others either went out with thick eye liner or smudged for creating a softer look like Sonia Rykiel.
4. Color PoP:
I’m loving the Peter Som look. The bright addition really gives a new outlook to makeup. White eye liner at Dior looks great as well. Recently I saw Jessica Alba sport the white liner at Met Gala 2015 event. It’s best to make eyes look bigger and more fresh. Ellie Saab got the 60’s blues back, brighter in the tear ducts.
5. Purple haze:
Tints and shades of purple are not going anywhere whether it be clothes or makeup. Derak Lam kept it subtle on the eyes while other like Mathew Williamson and Vera Wang went bold.
Rounding off beauty looks of spring/summer 2015, the hair mostly turned up simple air dried with waves or woodstock curls. Nail art is still a big trend and brows were not as prominent as before but were kept combed and neat not slimming any time soon.
