The Show: Alexander Wang
The Breakdown: Inspired by surfer girls, makeup artist Diane Kendal went for a naturally sun-kissed look. She applied Nars’ Sheer Glow foundation and stick concealer to perfect the skin, and then tapped either the brand’s Capadoce, Altai, Vientaine or Portofino matte multiple sticks onto the cheeks to add a beachy glow. On the lips, she applied concealer, which allowed the skin to shine.
The Show: Oscar de la Renta
The Breakdown: Concealer and brow pencil made up the look created by makeup artist Tom Pecheux, which was worn by Jasmine, Josephine Skriver and Maria Borges, to name a few.
The Show: Gigi x Tommy Hilfiger
The Breakdown: Makeup artist Pat McGrath went for a “back to basics” feel by creating flawless, "nontoured" skin, grooming the brows, curling the lashes, and simply applying lip balm.
The Show: Jason Wu
The Breakdown: After perfecting the skin with concealer, Yadim created a contour on the eyelids by applying Maybelline’s Brow Drama Pomade Crayon in Blonde to the lids, blending it out into the brow bone, which he considers the summery version of a smoky eye. He then added a tiny bit of lip balm onto the lids and inner corners to add shine, and finished the look with a full brow.
The Show: Oday Shakar
The Breakdown: To accentuate the models’ own skin, makeup artist Justine Purdue went with a glowing-from-within look that worked well with the collection, which was inspired by Middle Eastern art and classic Western silhouettes.
The Show: Proenza Schouler
The Breakdown: The only product needed to recreate this look? Concealer, which makeup artist Diane Kendal applied with a blending brush to spot-correct the models’ skin. Then, she simply applied the same product around the eyes and lids, filled in the brows and applied M.A.C. lip conditioner for hydration.
The Show: Tory Burch
The Breakdown: To create the natural look at Tory Burch, makeup artist Diane Kendal applied the Honest Beauty True Velvet eyeliner in Cocoa at the lash line, blending it outwards with a small brush. She then defined the eyes even more with a coat of mascara, and kept the rest of the face fresh, applying subtle faux freckles with brown eyeliner and brightening up the cheeks with blush before adding a nude matte lip and Honest Beauty’s Magic Balm (Jessica Alba’s favorite) to eyes, cheeks and lips.
The Show: Yeezy Season 4
The Breakdown: For Kanye’s controversial runway show, makeup artist Pat McGrath gave models a flawless, radiant look, which was equally as minimalistic as the collection.
