The Center Part

Although this may take you back to the ’70s, it is not outdated and the middle part is coming back. Whether your hairstyle is sleek or messy, it is all about the center part. Rag & Bone showed the sleek-and-chic center part style, while Alexander Wang went with the messy bed head hair and middle part. Oscar De La Renta showed the hair up but still rocking the center part.

Skin Is In

Who can argue that having good skin, whether it is in your DNA or you work at it, is not an asset. Several of the designers and makeup teams decided to showcase beautiful skin and have that be the main focus. As with anything of course there are always tricks to bring out luminous skin with the right products. Lead Makeup Artist Romy Soleimani created stunning skin for The Zero + Maria Cornejo show. “Fresh and Flawless” was the theme created for the Diane Von Furstenberg show and at Edun’s Show it was ‘flawless skin’ thanks to MAC.

Colorful Eyes

Who says that bright eye shadows are out? The runways were full of bright eye shadows and colorful eyeliners. At Marc by Marc Jacobs, the models sported cobalt eye shadows. The magenta “flaming” cat eyes at the Jeremy Scott show, created by MAC artist Kabuki. White was also a hit color seen in the eyeshadow at the Altuzarra show, in stripes as eyeliner at the Kate Spade show and at the Tibi show. All of the bright white eyes were used, differently but each gave a brightness to those eyes.
