‘Tis the season of extremes. Be it a full face of—gasp—nearly no makeup, or full makeup with a barely-there face covered in metal. The beauty looks seen on the Fall 2015 runways competed with the best of the collections in direction and theatrics.
There were pops of brightly colored lids at Nina Ricci, plenty of natural, rose-hued pouting, oodles of exaggerated black liner, and continuing on from the 2014 season—an emphasis on a healthy eyebrow game. Brow gel was seemingly a must at every show whether used for actual eyebrows, to finish off a kiss curl, or rig up some facial appliqués.

Let us present Nina Ricci as a little bright-eyed palette cleanser before we make our way to the more daring side of Fall 2015 runway beauty. The pop of purple applied with a cream eye color on the top lid finished with a few single false lashes creates a fun, almost doll-like look that works year round.
Both Pat McGrath and Riccardo Tisci referenced the curious notion of “Chola Victorian,” for Givenchy’s Fall 2015 show. Weighty bijoux covered the faces, ears, and noses of otherwise makeup-free models who also sported kiss curls created using hair gel with eyebrow brushes.
With a show rooted in Mayan culture and a history of theatrical antics, we were delighted to see the Rick Owens models sporting beautiful gold-leaf foil faces. Not exactly a runway-to-real-way trend, per se, but it would be fun to experiment with a gold-flecked manicure or a solid sparkling eyelid!
