Following on from SS12's minimal makeup looks from last season, it's great to see again that its all about radiant skin with a focus on either eyes, brows or lips. And seeing as we're talking about America, let's follow suit and call it Fall2012 as opposed to AW2012. This was just one of the words I learnt whilst I was in the Big Apple, like candy (sweets/lollies) and cookies (biscuits)
These looks are wearable and translate easily enough for every day life and are quite simple to recreate at home. It's nice to see looks that work both on the runway and in real life!
Here's some of my favourite looks:
|Victoria Beckham Fall 2012|
As Victoria Beckham finally gets the credit she deserves for her stunning collection the hair and make up complimented the strength and simplicity of her creations. With fresh skin and a focus on stronger eyebrows and a pop of colour on the lips. I'm loving the red/orange lip colour as its a perfect shade of red for daywear without being too in your face.
Hair was created by the legendary Guido for Redken and sported a severe side part with a slick of gel to create a wet look through the front. He also used extensions on the girls to create a blunt cut finish on their straight locks.
|Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2012|
At Marc by Marc Jacobs we saw a similar vibe with the makeup and strong side parting, however this time it was complimented by a low ponytail.
Whilst at Marc Jacobs mainline, it was a grungier look altogether- the girls makeup looked like they were on their way home from a big night out! Hair wise, following his 'Oliver Twist in Wonderland' theme it featured a lot of hats. Hair featured 2 low buns which were deconstructed and dishevelled to add a fairy tale kind of twist to the look.
