As summer gives way to autumn and our sartorial choices start to include layers, the season’s beauty trends dictate makeup go pared back and minimal. A reflection of fashion’s obsession with sports luxe, skin is fresh, with a healthy glow while hair is almost post-gym – wet and undone. You’ll want to spend more time on pre-foundation prep as makeup goes on only where necessary. Post-foundation, add the finishing touches: comb brows into place, curl lashes and dab balm onto lips.
At 3.1 Phillip Lim this minimalistic makeup look got a touch of masculine with clever contouring, neat eyebrows and post-workout glow. At Prabal Gurung, the makeup stayed masculine, but with a delicate flush, groomed eyebrows and eye shadow to add definition.
The no-makeup makeup look was perfected at Isabel Marant, Stella McCartney and Giambattista Valli where models were given a bit of definition around the eyes and makeup was used sparingly. Hair played a big role in completing the look with fuss-free, middle-parted ponytails at Giambatistta Valli, low textured, ones with wisps of hair left loose at Stella McCartney, undone, tousled locks at Isabel Marant.
