Makeup and Hair Trends From NYFW Spring 2014

I just finished one of the most insane work weeks ever, and consequently missed the bulk of New York Fashion Week. As much as I wanted to track it all in real time, shooting til midnight everyday got the better of me, so now I’m doing some high speed recapping, tracking both NYFW and now LFW.

Anyway, here are some of the hair and makeup trends that look interesting for spring of 2014:

1. Wet hair.
Seen both as a glam option,and a grungy one, slicked back, wet hair will make getting out the door on time a whole lot easier.

2. Thin blue eyeliner.

Francois Nars did this at Marc Jacobs. Doesn’t it look refreshing?
Have to wonder why the Marc Jacobs show didn’t use the new Marc Jacobs makeup line?
Regardless, this could be a fun trend for spring.

3. Iridescent Skin with Tangerine Lips

I loved the iridescent skin and tangerine lips at Rag and Bone.
Skin looked alive and quasi futuristic, offset by the bold yet fresh lip.

The tangerine lip was also front and center at Prabal Garung.

4. The Low Ponytail

I loved this at Jason Wu. Across the board designers were showing variations on the low ponytail, from the center part at Wu, to soft and easy at Christain Siriano, sleek at Victoria Beckham and smooth and simple at Altuzarra

5. Metallic Eyes

The Nars team created fresh, metallic lids at Carmen Marc Valvo,
a trend spotted at other designers including Jason Wu, Charlotte Ronson and Prabal Garung.

more about a statement of pure luxe

Backstage, Marc Jacobs explained:
‘It’s 50 different women, real and imaginary. 
It’s my friends
and my fantasies. 
She can look pulled together or thrown together. 
She’s
Left Bank. She’s Hollywood. 
A bit Gloria Swanson. A bit Juliet Greco. 
She’s romantic, erotic, decadent, glamorous and she loves luxury. 
The
type of woman who expresses herself as an individual.’

For Louis Vuitton handbag enthusiasts
the Pochette Accessoire, the Speedy and the Lockit
received fabulous new treatments,
in marabou, goose feather and waxed crocodile,
with handles hand carved from antique wood, 
horn or precious stones.
