Runway, Spring/Summer 2012

NYFW Spring 2012 – Part 1

Jason Wu


I’m loving the bright red-orange lips on the Jason Wu runway. Makeup artists used MAC’s Scarlet lipstick and dabbed their Neon Orange pigment over the top. Like at Doo Ri, no mascara was used, just some liner to define the eyes.

Alexander Wang

At Alexander Wang, makeup artists lined the model’s eyes with black liner and smudged it out for a edgier, “raw” feel. Everything else was kept natural.

Strong brows and heavy contouring was seen on the models walking in Thakoon’s show. The skin was given a dewey consistency and the lips were lightly defined with NARS’ Belle De Jour Velvet Matte Lip Pencil.

Park Choon Moo


The makeup color scheme at Park Choon Moo was neutral but the look was strong. The contouring was heavy and the brows were defined. White was applied  on the sides of the model’s heads and carried onto their upper cheekbone and temple.

Diane Von Furstenberg


The makeup at Diane Von Furstenberg’s Spring 2012 show was minimal but gorgeous. The lips were kept completely bare while the eyes were defined with neutral khaki and gold shadows.

 Charlotte Willer was inspired by the “California Girl Glow” for the look at DKNY. The makeup she created a simple and clean, with lots of bronzer and rosy cheeks.

Narciso Rodriguez

At Narcisco Rodriguez, models were given a rosy-brown monochromatic makeup look with no mascara or liner. Foundation was minimal and the brows were lightly defined.

Oscar de la Renta


The makeup at Oscar De La Renta is my favorite of the season so far. It’s flawless. Look at the skin!

To create it, Gucci Westman prepped the skin with Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream and the Regenerating Serum. She then applied Revlon’s Age Defying Spa Illuminator in Pink Light and Illuminance Crème Shadow in Not Just Nude. The eyes were given a touch of definition with brown liner and and a tad of eyeshadow mixed with gloss.

Gretchen Jones

Look at the hair at Gretchen Jones! So intricate. The makeup was kept very clean with a pop of raspberry on the lips.
