New York fashion week: 5 images from the last shows
The New York fashion shows are over. While fashion passionates are directing their attention on London, where a new series of fashion shows will be organized, we are continuing to analyze the images demonstrated on the catwalks of the American fashion country.
Stylists who worked in the backstage of Proenza Schouler decided to not deviate from the course set by the first New York shows and they also supported the trend of a maximum natural makeup and the wet effect in hairstyles. The most important task of make-up artists was not to just easy emphasize the natural beauty of the girls, but to make it almost invisible that is why, on the faces of models there were no traces of makeup. They tried to keep the natural radiance of the skin and did not apply a big quantity of face foundation, but with the help of a correction product they hide the minor imperfections, and applied on lips only a clear lip balm. As for hairstyles, here everything was without any complications – the hair was slicked back, using thick styling gels, which created that well-known wet hair effect.

Spring and summer for Vera Wang is painted in somber shades: the majority of dresses, included in her new collection are made in black. The beauty-images for these looks were mainly created in expressive dark plum color and has become one of the few who even suggested that makeup artists should not limit to the nude palette but add in the image at least one color. Applied as a smoke on the eyelids, it will allow you to enhance the beauty of the eyes of girls. When creating the hairstyles, the stylist Paul Hanlon decided to reinterpret the trendy braids – each model had braided two of the lower strands, while the rest of the hair, previously arranged it in waves,was left loose.

Looking en face at the girls from the Donna Karan Spring-Summer 2016 show, you can immediately conclude that this is another modest, but feminine look, which at New York Fashion Week from this season are plenty of. Makeup in nude tones with accentuated eyebrows and colored eyelashes, hair parted in the middle and put together in the back. But it is enough to just to turn the models at 180 degrees, and it is already clear that the hairstyle claims to be one of the most original from the show. The stylist Eugene Souleiman braided braids that were looking like metal chains with links, and each of them had to be made by four hands! But the result was worth it. Such compound braid it will be definitively difficult to repeat on your own, but if you manage to do that, the enthusiasm and compliments from those around you are guaranteed.

In his new Spring-Summer collection, Michael Kors embodied the spring romance with its pastel shades and delicate floral patterns. According to the designer, the hair and make-up had to repeat the general mood. Makeup artists considered that the effect of makeup without makeup, which has already become an absolute hit of New York Fashion Week, will be perfect for that. They even the skin of the models with face foundation and then used a blush in peach shade to bring the image a warm tone. The contour of the eye was subtly made with a brown pencil, in such a way that the line was almost invisible. This gentle and natural look was completed by careless braids invented by the stylist Orlando Pita. He made sure to give the hair volume and texture, parted it in the middle and then leaved some strands loose near the face and braided them.

Those who are following the work of Marc Jacobs more than one year, are no longer surprised by designers original ideas. His unconventional views are applied not only in fashion but also in the beauty area. Especially when it comes to beauty images for his shows. This confirms the fact that during the fourth show of Marc Jacobs, hair stylists led by Guido Palau are using wigs without arranging the natural hair of models. “With the help of wigs is easy to control the style”, says Guido. This season, models of Jacobs appeared on the catwalk wearing black wigs shoulder length with bangs and wavy texture – that gave the images a rocker spirit.
Francois Nars, responsible for the make-up of the show, decided to not do it at all. “We were not in the mood to apply make-up!”, he joked. His team of makeup artists only slightly disguised the models minor skin imperfections, and there were no more makeup on their face.

By getting ambiguous combinations, Mark, Francois and Guido wanted to show that fashion is a flight of fantasy and we must be able to “play” with the look and enjoy that play, have fun, but not to approach it with a serious attitude.
