Sometimes the greatest fashion statement in any runway show isn’t the amazing clothes and accessories adorning the models, but rather the hair and makeup completing the look.
This Resort 2014, bold eyes and lips graced the otherwise almost bare-faced models, adding a bright pop of color to the vacation-ready collections. Two designers at the forefront of these beauty trends are none other than Chanel and Christian Dior.
Known for his love of a fabulous eye, it’s no surprise then that Karl Lagerfeld wanted something simple yet exquisite for his Resort 2014 collection. He achieved his vision with vivid electric blue liner under the bottom lashes paired with a more traditional thick and smoky black winged liner on the top. The final look is at once familiar yet fresh, modern, and wearable. Topped off with lightly contoured cheeks and pale mauve lips, the eyes do all the talking.
Statement lips are refreshing and not exclusive to the red lip palette of fall and winter. Christian Dior plays with the look with a bright fuchsia lip. The lip, achievable through lipsticks, lipglosses, or lip tars is definitely a statement on its own, with barely-there iridescent eyeshadow and babydoll lashes finishing the face.
The key to both looks is to focus in one statement area, and let the other areas be soft, matte, and complimentary.
