New York Fashion Week: Best Beauty Looks

New York Fashion Week has come to a close, and what a week for fashion it was!  Along with the breathtaking fashions, we saw some incredible beauty looks on the runways. Glowing skin, windswept hair and neutral lip colors took center stage adding to the drama of the spring collections. Here are looks we loved.

Sunset Colored Highlights at Peter Som

The beauty team for the Peter Som show seemed to have mixed peach and pale orange to get that just right shade for sensational sunset colored highlights. The highlights are an exceptionally beautiful shade from the skies of a warm summer night. A lovely warm color to brighten up your face for spring! 

 

 

California Boho Sophistication at Jill Stuart

Side swept bangs and tousled hair combined for a fantastically fresh boho-chic look. The beauty experts at Jill Stuart teamed black-kohl eyeliner and added pastel colors, such as coral and soft orange to the lips that mixed for a sophisticated yet laid back look.

 

Nude Lips at Rag & Bone

What better way to accentuate the colorful spring collection from Rag & Bone than by creating a natural beauty look. Gucci Westman, Revlon’s Global Artistic Director, created an easy look with nude lips. The result was achieved by combining only Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Demure and Silver City Pink to the lips. 

 

Glowing Skin at Charlotte Ronson

A soft sun-kissed glow was the beauty goal for Charlotte Ronson's spring 2012 show. Achieving this look was done by the Sephora beauty team, using Charlotte Ronson beauty products. First, a sheer matte finishing powder was applied to the skin. Then instead of putting blush directly on the apples of the cheeks it was applied underneath them, to highlight the glow from within.  

 

 

 

Coral Lips at Nicole Miller 

Coral was one of the summer's hottest colors and it seems that it will carry over to spring as well. Punchy pinks and oranges combined for the sheer and flattering coral lips seen at Nicole Miller's spring runway presentation. 

 

 

Beach Beauty at Michael Kors

After a day at the beach we're not so sure we could look as glamorous as the models at the Michael Kors spring show. Beauty expert, Dick Page completely transformed the hair and makeup look at Michael Kors taking it in the opposite direction of sun-kissed and glowing, to sunburnt and vibrant. He did this by combining a mixture of four Shiseido Luminizing Satin Face Colors, (Orchid, Petal, Tea Rose and Carnation) and brushing them all over the face for a silky smooth look. Hairstylist, Orlando Pita crimped and curled soft waves into the hair and texturized pieces for a little bit of bounce.

New York Fashion Week: Badgley Mischka

Badgley Mischka’s Spring 2012 collection was bright, colorful and topped off with bows! From small bows to over-the-top bows, they were the hottest “accessory” of the collection. The ornate dresses, made of heavier materials like linen, were intermingled with mini-shorts and bathing suits. The collection even included a mid-length leather jacket; a must have item for those chilly spring nights out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The dresses were exquisite, almost channeling a 1940s evening wear collection. One could imagine Rita Hayworth or Lauren Bacall in a Badgley Mischka dress as easily as a modern woman from New York’s Upper East Side.

 

 

The models wore messy updos and hot pink lipstick, which seemed to be a trend on the runway for spring 2012. Each model also sported a fake “beauty mark” under her left eye. Chunky necklaces and earrings complimented the strapless dresses while pointy stilettos pumps in neon shades of pink and orange and strappy sandals finished off the looks.

New York Fashion Week: Calvin Klein

The week has shown everything from zombie-pale lips to cartwheeling designers to tribal print madness on the runways of New York.  

The Calvin Klein collection strayed from all of that Thursday for a collection of classic work from the iconic American design house.

The catwalk showed a line of models in suits and dresses, all tightly tailored and styled.

It was as if the show was sending New York Fashion Week out on a whisper, as opposed to a bang.

Women's Creative Director Francisco Costa stuck to a subtle palette of nudes, blacks, and a few metallics. All very similar hemlines, sexy but not too revealing at the same time. 

In the meantime, London Fashion Week is underway! Stay with Fashion Wrap Up for all the latest from the UK!

New York Fashion Week: Proenza Schouler

Tropical and tribal forces of a fierce fashion nature came together for the Spring 2012 Proenza Schouler runway presentation. Where most designers used pastels, bold colors, sheer fabrics and lightweight textures, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez took their creations on a completely wild ride for spring.

Ensembles of almost a completely muted color palette: charcoal, brown and black appeared on a retro shag carpet runway, but then the color began to flow through. Gold, orange and green, Hawaiian floral prints on pencil skirts and tiger striped patterns on mini skirt suits with the dark colors.

 

Creative excellence that was so wrong, it was right began to take shape. Did we mention the gorgeous eelskin a-line skirts?

Fusing these colors, that were mocked into fashion exile in the seventies with tailored, ladylike forties inspired silhouettes, made for a tasteful combination of sex appeal and grace.

 

 

 

 

Classic pin-up styles, such as full-skirted sun-dresses and high-waisted beach shorts with modern twists featuring midriff cuts, were both sleek and daring.

All of this was inspired by Googie architecture (mid-century road stop architecture) and 1950s car interiors. Truly a mash up of ideals of unthinkable proportions, but someone did think of it and it worked!
