The “no makeup” look isn’t exactly new backstage, but we can’t deny it’s having a moment all over again. With Kim Kardashian-West wearing (almost) no makeup on the Balenciaga front row and Alicia Keys continuing her decision to scrap cosmetics altogether, the no makeup look was on full display both on and off the catwalk.
At Isabel Marant, Michael Kors and Proenza Schouler makeup was used only to cover marks or blemishes.
Let’s have a look at the other subtle tweaks that were part of the runway during the fashion weeks in New York, London, Milan and Paris for Spring/Summer 2017.
Soft definition and natural look with occasional pops of colour – pale pink shades on the lips: the contemporary grown up Pollyanna.
The main vibe at Lacoste was completely bare. They tried to keep it clean, fresh and pure. And it worked!
Desigual is the go-to brand when it comes to colour lovers. However, for its spring 2017 collection the makeup was in nude shades.
Touch of bronzer on the cheeks made the looks polished and completed, perfect for your daily outfits.
Cushnie et Ochs
Pops of colour, again. The makeup artists went for colour blocking… on the lips! They used bold red on the upper lip and bright pink on the lower lip.
The models looked sun kissed and very natural. The feeling? Urban, minimal and bare.
