'70 Glamorous Bohemian
The show: Tom Ford
The look: Tom Ford's beauty look "introduces the glamorous bohemian reinvention of the Tom Ford smoky eye," says the brand. "Inspired by the cool cleverness of '70s beauty, the tawny smoked-out eye look focuses on a color story of muted browns with a hint of gold with light-reflective, textural depth."
The show: Rachel Zoe
The look: "I wanted to create a fresh-faced, Parisian-inspired look utilizing monochromatic pink shades that are subtle and allow your skin to shine through," says Monika Blunder, the key makeup artist backstage. "I'm obsessed with how chic the lips are in this look. I just added a lip crayon to the center of the pout and blended outward to achieve that effortless, flushed look."
The show: Undra Celeste
The look: "We used synthetic hair for this look in order to get that dramatic volume that sometimes human hair can't achieve," says Ursula Stephen, the stylist behind the look, "and then used the micro mist to lock in that asymmetrical shape."
The show: Self-Portrait
The look: "The youthful, free, and feminine spirit of the collection served as the jumping-off point for this look," explains makeup artist Thomas de Kluyver for Maybelline New York. "I wanted to capture that moment when you’re experimenting with makeup in the safety of your bedroom or bathroom."
How to get it: Maybelline Lasting Drama Light Eyeliner in White Luster ($6)
The show: Proenza Schouler
The look: "We worked with Lisa Eldridge and Lancôme to bring out the natural beauty of each girl, with an emphasis on fresh healthy skin paired with a strong brow," said designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez. Eldridge adds, "It is a minimalist look that focuses on the quality of the skin and bringing out the natural beauty and character of every face."
How to get it: Lancôme Advanced Génifique Light Pearl Eye Illuminator Concentrate ($69), Teint Idole Ultra Liquid 24H Longwear SPF 15 Foundation ($47), and Long Time No Shine loose Setting Powder ($37)
Feminine and Relaxed
The show: Carolina Herrera
The look: Feminine and relaxed waves was the vibe at the Carolina Herrera show, keyed backstage by stylist Odile Gilbert. "This fresh and sleek look showcases texture. Use a styling spray to accentuate the hair’s natural waves and finish with a mild hair spray to maintain body and movement," Gilbert says.
How to get it: Tresemmé Repair & Protect 7 Pre-Styling Spray ($5) and Compressed Micro-Mist Hold Level 1: Texture Hair Spray ($6)
The show: Brock Collection
The look: Celebrity makeup artist Gucci Westman executed romantic beauty looks, creating "fresh skin with the ease of a summer morning to warm, glowing cheeks, and a fresh pop of color on the lips."
Texas and All-American
The show: Brandon Maxwell
The look: Hairstylist James Pecis created the look for Brandon Maxwell, citing the inspiration as "Texas and all-American—think tailgates, coolers, and Brooke Shields."
Alice in Wonderland
The show: Badgley Mischka
The look: Carly Giglio, a pro makeup artist and head of pro artistry for Stila Cosmetics, created the look for Badgley Mischka's 30th-anniversary show. "The theme was Alice in Wonderland—Through the Looking Glass," Giglio says. "Layer textures of shimmer and glimmer for added dimension on the eyes, and, for even more added glow, apply Weleda Skin Food ($19) with a damp Beautyblender ($20) and bounce it on the high points of the face."
The show: Jonathan Simkhai
The look: "To achieve this chic and bohemian look, be sure to give the hair texture at the roots. That's how you get the '60s boho feel," says Odile Gilbert.
The show: Cynthia Rowley
The look: Rowley chose to feature real-life roller skaters rather than professional models, and makeup artist Carly Giglio created a look she calls moonbeam, wherein she showcases each woman’s glowing skin with pink lips, shadow, and blush.
The show: Savage x Fenty
The look: "The Fenty Beauty artistry team wanted the beauty looks for Savage x Fenty to focus on the colorful interpretation of emotions, creating looks that featured breathable, radiant skin and intense washes of color inspired by stained-glass," the brand wrote. "Using all Fenty Beauty products, the artistry team began by creating a natural and youthful looking base. Each look was grounded in beautiful color, unique to each girl and her skin tone, topped with a high-gloss finish and shimmering skin from head to toe."
Graphic Cat Eye
The show: LaQuan Smith
The look: "Empowered women who do anything necessary to stay on top" was the inspiration behind LaQuan Smith’s collection. So makeup artist Bimpe Onakoya chose a graphic and glamorous eye that was as sleek and sultry.
The show: Alice + Olivia
The look: Inspired by a world of wonders, makeup artist Erin Parsons created four bold looks inspired by locales like Paris and Marrakech.
Early '80s Glamour
The show: Naeem Khan
The look: "Glamorous women of the late '70s and early '80s" was the inspiration, so makeup artist Gato went for a glossy red lip and subtle draping.
The show: Rodarte
The look: Odile Gilbert created the look for Rodarte, fashioning ornate and romantic waves, whimsical florals, and awe-inspiring, garden-party creations.
The show: Anna Sui
The look: Pat McGrath used watercolor, sunset tones backstage at Anna Sui. Six of the models selected by Sui got this treatment, which Pat McGrath described as whimsical and fantastical, while the rest got a subtler holographic eye using the Astral shade from McGrath’s Mothership palette.
How to get it: Pat McGrath Labs Mthrshp Subversive La Vie en Rose Eyeshadow Palette ($55) and Mothership II Eyeshadow Palette in Sublime ($125)
The show: Jeremy Scott
The look: "The look is a bold, foil-like lip in neutral shades," says iconic makeup artist Kabuki. "The metallic edginess is in keeping with the brashness of youth."
'50s Pastels with a Twist
The show: Marc Jacobs
The look: Using a 1950s color palette, but with a modern twist, lead makeup artist Diane Kendal kept the focus on the eyes with a wash of pastel on the lids, tight-lined liner, and loads of lashes.
The show: Mansur Gavriel
The look: "It's the Mansur Gavriel fantasy,” said Laurent Philippon, the head stylist behind the look. "Everything looks natural and effortless, but it’s extremely calculated; we study every single girl down to each individual strand of hair."
How to get it: Bumble and Bumble Prep Primer ($25)
