Beauty : S/S 12 makeup trends

For S/S 2012 makeup artists played it safe with a number of “old, good” trends slightly twisted to create fresh and nouveau looks.  It seems that the torn pages from Vogue magazines from the 50-ies made an inspirational basis for the S/S looks. As said: all new is well forgotten old.

Red lips spotted at Christian Dior, Donna Karan, Jason Wu and Anna Sui varied from red velvet to extra glossy, from the classy pin-up shape & colour to dark berry hues.

Cat eyes dramatic, metallic, soft and summerish were seen during the  Badgley Mischka, Jonathan Saunders and Louis Vuitton catwalks. At Dolce & Gabbana cat eye look gained a junior competitor – kitty eyes. The black eyeliner was applied from the mid of the upper lids to the outer corners which created a playful and young look.

Usual favourite of each and every season healthy blush played on the models’ cheeks at Burberry Prorsum, Michael Kors, Isabel Marant and Christopher Kane.

Silver metallic reminding of moon light and  of ocean shore sand sparked on the eyelids  of the models at Chanel, Ralph Lauren and Theyskens’ Theory.

A pop of colour transformed eyes, lips and cheeks of the models at Miu Miu, Parabal Gurung, Rebecca Taylor and Victor & Rolf into exotic flowers and birds.

Natural beauty – a baby soft and pale  skin with a healthy glow was spotted during the Oscar de la Renta, Christopher Kane, Carolina Herrera and Stella McCartney catwalks.  
При создании образов весна-лето 2012 визажисты не стали рисковать, а прибегли к “старому, доброму”, точнее классическому макияжу с лёгким уклоном в современность. Сложилось впечатление, что вырванные страницы из журналов 50-ых годов послужили базой для вдохновения. Как говорится: всё новое – хорошо забытое старое. Красная помада, использованная в показах Christian Dior, Donna Karan, Jason Wu и Anna Sui, варьировалась от вельветово-матовой до преувеличенно блестящей, от классическо-красного цвета до темно-черешневого.
Визажисты домов Badgley Mischka, Jonathan Saunders и Louis Vuitton создали акцент на глазах моделей при помощи чёрных стрелок различной длинны и формы. В макияже Dolce & Gabbana стрелки начинались с середины века и уходили вверх на внешнем уголке глаза, создавая таким образом игривый и юный взгляд.
Свежий румянец – извечный фаворит каждого сезона играл на щеках моделей Burberry Prorsum, Michael Kors, Isabel Marant и Christopher Kane.
Серебристо-металлические тени, походящие на свет луны или океанский песок, сверкали на веках моделей в показах Chanel, Ralph Lauren и Theyskens’ Theory.
Яркие цвета преобразили веки, губы и щёки моделей Miu Miu, Parabal Gurung, Rebecca Taylor и Victor & Rolf в экзотические цветы.
А образ естественной красоты с сияющей, по-детски нежной, незагорелой кожей преобладал в показах Oscar de la Renta, Christopher Kane, Carolina Herrera и Stella McCartney.
