For the past couple of years, fashion designers in Europe have favoured an otherworldly makeup look when presenting edgy fashion collections. The outfits are usually black or white so there is an emphasis put on makeup artists to make the models stand out on a catwalk in front of 300 journalists and buyers. Once the overly pale complexion trend became commonplace, artists took to whiting out brows. This made an instant impact especially when paired with a strong lip. Lady Gaga has experimented with this look on several occasions.
“There is a refreshing simplicity to beauty this season,” explains top makeup artist Tom Pecheux. “In both literal and conceptual terms: makeup artists are either making a decisive statement that pushes one element to the extreme or adopting a variant on “no makeup” as an equally strong and relevant style choice for SS16.”
