Hollywood glam, with a twist at Armani Spring 2016 Couture

When Mr. Armani asks, the Labs respond, this is the beauty backstage at his shows. Thanks to the unique mobile laboratory that packs different pigments and textures, Linda Cantello -International Make-up Artist for Giorgio Armani - is able to satisfy every demand of the designer. For this Spring 2016 Couture show the request was a shiny eyeliner and the result couldn’t be more beautiful and elegant.

Quando Armani desidera qualcosa, niente può fermarlo. Questa è la bellezza dei suoi backstage che, grazie al Lab Armani Runway vengono trasformati in dei veri e propri laboratori on-the-go in cui le idee di Giorgio Armani vengono pedissequamente tradotte in makeup da Linda Cantello, International Make-up Artist del brand. E cosi, per l’Haute Couture Primavera Estate 2016, è nato l’eyeliner shiny, un prodotto iperpigmentato e lucido.

Graphic statements at Chanel Couture SS2016

EPIC. This is the only word that can sum up the beauty look at Chanel’s Spring 2016 Haute Couture show. Hair was very french, so much so that Sam McKnight on his Instagram account dubbed the style with the hashtags #hairrolls and #chanelcroissant while Tom Pecheux framed the eyes with a elongated double stroke that made a graphic statement.

A “Smart Oil” took center stage at Cristiano Burani SS2016

Taking the inspiration from the festive mood that permeated the show, the beauty look at Cristiano Burani SS 2016 was all about fresh, glowy and flushed skin.

Makeup guru Jade, working with Clinique, said that the key player for achieving that freshness was Clinique new Smart Treatment Oil, a product he swears by (he literally used the word “addicted”), that was dabbed onto models’ cheekbones, lips and inner corner of the eyes for a “fresh and fragile look”.

Marc Jacobs SS2016 disheveled party girls

We have seen plenty of blue aquatic eyeshadow down the runway this SS2016 season but, so far, the best look of all is the one showcased at Marc Jacobs. No doubt this is the most awaited backstage of NYFW and that is simply because Marc and NARS give beauty just as much thought as the collection. Back on the look, this time around the whole idea was to have party girls strolling down the catwalks looking “a little worn with too much mascara, just the right amount of colour, no foundation and dark circles under the eyes” as Dick Page said backstage.

Back to the streets, back to the feelings and style of when Alexander Wang started. This was the briefing for the SS2016 beauty look, something that Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics, Guido Palau and manicurist Michelle Saunders translated in a row vibe: “the girls are meant to kind of look as they are, with a little bit of grooming but nothing ‘done’” as the makeup-pro said.
