NYFW Spring Makeup Trends


Mercedes Benz Fashion Week New York took place last week to show case the latest fashion for Spring 2015. As it's already Spring here, it is the perfect time to try out some of the beauty looks that graced the runway: from white eyeliner to orange lips, here are some of the hottest trends to inspire you to create using natural makeup.

White Eyeliner, Long Lashes and Pink Lips

It was all about the eyes backstage at Nanette Lepore. White eyeliner and statement black lashes add sophisticated drama for a modern take on black and white. Makeup artist Grace Lee applied faux lashes and lashings of mascara to both the upper and lower lashline and double-feline flicked white eyeliner for 60's inspired eyes. Lips were left super soft in pretty pink.

Orange Lips

It's fab to see orange lips are still on-trend for Spring/Summer 14/15. Created for Tanya Taylor's gorgeous Spring collection, makeup artist Uzo kept makeup minimal and fresh with bold orange lips he called "crisp and unexpected."

Violet Eyes

Just love this look seen backstage at Derek Lam. Violet eyeshadow suits all eye colours and is particularly flattering on green. Makeup artist Tom Pecheux applied makeup to the upper lid and lashes only, and used a mix of brown eyeliner, violet eyeshadow and brown eyeshadow to achieve this sultry yet pretty look. By adding brown to the violet, the colour is muted and warmed up.

Sleek pony and thick black eyeliner

Makeup artist Gucci Westman created graphic eyes backstage at Oscar de la Rente. She created thick black lines on the upper lash line using gel and liquid eyeliners, and drew the wing out to a short blunt point. The sophisticated look compliments the sleek ponytail perfectly. Brows were left natural and bushy while lips are barely there.
