{Beauty Flash} NYFW Fall 2014 Beauty Trends

After several seasons where the beauty looks sent down the runway were muted and natural looks dominated, fall took a different direction and albeit refreshing turn. Get ready, because next fall will be about makeup whether applied to the eyes or dotted on the lips.  Next season the focus will turn to the eyes if inspiration is drawn from the runway where eye shadow provided a major impact.  At Donna Karan models wore a stunning silvery shade with a subtle sheen that was paired with a nearly bare lip while at DVF models donned an incredibly flattering mauve shadow coupled with a lipstick in nearly the same shade.  In addition to shadow, the cat eye was also seen in different renditions whether a subtle winged effect seen at Rag & Bone and Ralph Rucci or a smoldering smokey as seen at Sophie Theallet -  all imparting a dramatic, yet modern look.  Many of the looks spotted on the runway had a 'pretty' quality about them - at Ohne Titel the models complexions were luminous like they were lit from within and at Michael Kors cheek bones were accentuated with a peach blush with bronze undertones and groomed brows. The hair styles were either windswept with a dramatic side part tossled off-center like at Richard Chai and Giulieta or an undone updo nestled together with pins at Jason Wu.  Overall the beauty looks floating down the runway breathed new life into the season and I cannot wait to see what lands in my makeup bag come fall.  Continue for more...
