Face Time: New York’s Spring Beauty Trends

By
Diesel’s blue eyebrows.

Wondering where all the color went on the runways? Oh, hey, we know! On faces! The New York shows counteracted all the flesh-hued clothes with some bright, fun makeup. At Jill Stuart, each model’s face was dolled up in periwinkles and roses. Pastels also showed up on the lavender-glossed lips at Sari Gueron and the metallic, pastel peach mouths at Zac Posen. Tuleh, Michael Kors, Proenza Schouler, and Thakoon focused on a red, pouty lip. And the ever popular smoky eye made an appearance at Alexander Wang and Yigal Azrouël. Some shows went for more dramatic looks: Zero + Maria Cornejo opted for geometric-shaped face paint, and Diesel painted on blue eyebrows. Think it’s too much fuss? Scratch it! Because the easiest look of all was at BCBG, Tommy Hilfiger, and Marchesa: bare faces (or just made to look so). To see all of the spring 2009 makeup trends and more, click ahead for our slideshow.
