100 DAYSPA | MAY 2015 IN THE NEWS © GETTY IMAGES RADIANT COMPLEXIONS NYFW models sported heavy splashes of intensely hued eye shadows, under-eye glitter, black eyeliner drawn on upper and lower lids in dozens of styles, and deep red and dark berry lips. When it came to complexions, models' faces practically glowed as they walked for the crowds, but it wasn't highlighter that brightened their winter skin. Harnessing the sheen of a simple moisturizer, makeup artists layered day creams on models' faces, then applied concealer on the nose and chin, resulting in an all-over luminosity. Some went a step further and employed facial oils (like marula) to boost the power of hydrating creams and ensure that makeup would go on— and hold—flawlessly. The spa theme continued backstage, as many models received a spot of facial pampering. Makeup professionals for Rag & Bone treated their models' skin with moisturizing serums, which were gently massaged into their complexions; those walking on the Victoria Beckham runway relaxed while wearing hydrating treatment masks before hopping into their makeup chairs. As for hair trends, knots and tight up-dos were seen everywhere backstage, plus plenty of side ponytails and basic braids. Embellishments—ponytail holders, headbands, bows and barrettes galore—completed the looks. THAT '70S SHOW Disco-era teenagers will be thrilled—or mortified!—to hear that trends from the 70s are back in full force. In anticipation of Fall and Winter this year, designers created plenty of overly embellished wardrobes. Many drew inspiration from the glamorous bohemian, a modern traveler enthusiast envisioned as a free-spirited flower child. This translated to designs with floaty hemlines and all-over print, adorned with tassels and beading. So break out your fringes, feathers and (faux) fur, and don't be afraid to mix them with asymmetrical hemlines! A slew of bold orange ensembles made their way down catwalks, from jumpsuits to evening gowns. Also in evidence: a monotone theme, embodied by head-to-toe gray, which was present in the collections of Marissa Webb, Jason Wu and Lacoste. Soft pastels were also ubiquitous—we spotted seafoam green and baby blue, plus lavender and several variations on pale rose hues. (Fans of patterns, fear not: plaids and florals were easy to pick out as well.) And all that glitters may be gold this Fall, as dozens of models slipped on shimmery hues of the precious metal to sashay down the runways.
