It's not just the clothing that garners applause; the beauty looks, too, are a feast for the senses. Scroll through to see our favorite beauty moments from the SS24 runways.
BOLD LASHES AT AZ FACTORY
Adding a dramatic flair to the SS24 season, AZ Factory captivated audiences with a display of vibrant lashes. Nestled amidst the bright hues of the collection, these eyelashes lent a theatrical edge to each look. The lashes, painted in a spectrum of colors — think electrifying blues, fiery oranges, and passionate pinks — were paired with the slightest hint of makeup, allowing them to take center stage. An audacious choice, no doubt, but one that is signature to the experimental essence of AZ Factory.
FEATHERS EVERYWHERE AT DRIES VAN NOTEN
This season, the Dries Van Noten runway fluttered with a sophisticated touch of nature, created in large part to the brilliant minds of Sam McKnight and Lucy Bridge. While the collection may have been a tad more understated than some of Van Noten's previous ensembles, the attention to detail was unwavering. The inclusion of feathers served as a masterstroke, used in previous runways which elevated the entire look to be truly Dries. The models' gaze, accentuated by a bold feathered eyeliner, blended seamlessly with their tousled hair. In true Dries fashion, he presented elements that you would ordinarily think clash — but actually worked perfectly together.
SHARP "EYELINER" AT MUGLER
Mugler, known for an unyielding commitment to precision and structure, carried over that ethos into this season's beauty look. The hair, as impeccable as the lines of a well-tailored Mugler piece, was deliberately parted, with some models showcasing a sharp 'V' angle that amplified the geometry of the look. However, it was the eyes that became the main attraction. While the rest of the face remained neutral, a striking 3D eyeliner design became the focus. This piece, seemingly crafted from a sleek piece of plastic, added a twist, creating an angular dimension on the models' faces, as well as a nod to Mugler's architectural approach.
CYBORG GIRLS AT NOIR KEI NONOMIYA
This season, Noir Kei Nonomiya undeniably stood out with the make-up direction for his SS24 collection. An avant-garde masterpiece, the makeup was an intricate interplay of metal and skin. Metal-plated designs, reminiscent of futuristic armor, worn on the models' faces, transformed them into Nonomiya's vision of cyborg girls. These shimmering appliqués, reflecting light and shadow, created a dynamic and dramatic contrast to the skin's natural texture. This beauty choice, which might seem radical to some, was a harmonious complement to Nonomiya's conceptual designs, blurring the lines between the human form and the machine. The looks were not just supplementary; they were integral to the collection's narrative.
FRESH AND DEWY AT TORY BURCH
At Tory Burch, there was a minimalistic approach to makeup — a whisper of rose on the lips, barely-there mascara, and a hint of shimmer on the eyelids. Channeling a look that mirrors morning dew on fresh petals, the makeup was designed to capture the essence of youthful glow. The skin, seemingly almost untouched, was still exquisitely refined and luminous. With each model's face reflecting a soft sheen, it became evident that Tory Burch embraced the trending dewy skin look, transforming it into a statement of elegance.
NO-MAKEUP MAKEUP AT CHANEL
At Chanel, minimalism and authenticity took center stage for the beauty looks. Models donned an ever-elusive no-makeup makeup look, exuding an almost ethereal freshness. A hint of blush added a soft rosy glow, showcasing the prowess of Chanel's makeup products in enhancing natural beauty rather than masking it. As fashion trends lean towards the minimalistic, Chanel's beauty statement echoed the same sentiment. Lips, untouched by dramatic shades, bore soft nude tones.
BOLD LIPS AND SMOKEY EYES AT SAINT LAURENT
At Saint Laurent, models showcased a striking look that was undeniably feminine yet bold. The distinct red lip, reminiscent of a classic Parisian woman, was paired with intense smokey eyes, creating a dramatic effect that was impossible to ignore. Even when the models donned sunglasses and signature Saint Laurent accessories, that red lip was ever-present. As the collection unveiled its utility-driven designs that border on the masculine, the beauty look seamlessly translated the essence of Saint Laurent — a woman who is audacious, powerful, yet undeniably elegant.
