There is more than fashion being showcased on the runway of any show. There is also beauty. Designers look to tell a story about a very specific client and often the hair and makeup is essential to creating the cohesiveness. One particularly strong example came from this year’s S/S 2013 Marc Jacobs Runway Beauty.
The look made a definitive reference to Edie Sedgwick and other mod era styling, but was met with a contemporary freshness (keeping it out of the costume party category).
The brows were extra thick and the hair had a deep part that swept across the forehead in a slightly messy manor. Meanwhile the face was neutral, but luminous, with an emphasis on strong, dark eyes. The lips were neutral, a look that sometimes reads dry, but again their was just enough glow to give them dimension.
I imagine giving this look a try on a night out when a red lip just won’t do.
Take a look for yourself:
