Chanel Spring/Summer 2014

In fitting with Karl Lagerfeld's art gallery set (there was a giant 2.55 bag!), models strutted the catwalk with paint-streaked covered eyes. Makeup artist Peter Philips used Chanel eye shadow and a flat brush to achieve the look, and we imagine Van Gogh himself would approve!

Anna Sui Spring/Summer 2014

While New York took a more sedated road in the beauty realm (there were more 'natural' looks then we could keep count!), we were pleasantly surprised when we spotted the look at Anna Sui.

Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2014

Makeup artist Pat McGrath never fails to inspire at Christian Dior. Since new designer Raf Simons took the reins as head designer of the house, his models have sported hot pink neon lipstick, plastic eyelash extensions, and metallic silver eyeshadow.

Givenchy Spring/Summer 2014

There are only two words to describe the look at Givenchy: Blown away.

Valentino Spring/Summer 2014

Sigh. Each season, we wait with bated breath to see what Guido Palau (on hair), and Pat McGrath (master of makeup), will create. Purity and braids have become house signatures for the beauty look at Valentino, and this season was no different (although the braid was replaced with the headband). From flawless skin to the perfect low ponytail, we can't wait to try this look ourselves.
