 This fashion week season is well underway having started in New York and soon to be in London in just a couple of days time. We all know that fashion week season is focused on the clothes being showcased from all the fabulous designers around the globe but a women's guilty pleasure is that we can't help but admire all the makeup looks created on the models each season.

One of the most iconic makeup artists in the world of makeup and present at fashion week every season creating beautifully designed looks whether it be natural to creative is Pat McGrath. Pat McGrath’s name is no secret to anyone in the business, her talent is beyond incredible and each season I look forward to seeing her new makeup designs. Makeup trends soon spread across the globe each season based on the key looks she creates and the new season will be no different.

McGrath’s main focus on all models across all designers she keyed makeup looks for this season at NYFW was to keep the skin soft and dewy. Gleaming, glowing skin with well defined structured brows were key for all models. She then adapted looks to suit each individual designers designs.

For Jenny Peckham, McGrath chose to use a turquoise eyeliner in a shape to suit the individual models eyes, she then teamed up with either a nude or bold red lip.


At Diane Von Furstenburg, she chose shades of turquoise and blue-greens to create a jewel toned eye again keeping the lips nude teamed with the gleaming skin.



Victoria Beckham’s models were kept a little more simple concentrating on the glowing skin teamed with either a nude lip or a pop of orange-red lips.

While at Givenchy she changed the direction slightly by adding a wash of mauve shadow around all of the eye. And keeping the brows light.


Not only were pastel shades of turquoise, green and blue used on the eyes in Pat McGrath’s designs it seemed to be everywhere supported with a nude or orange tone red lip.

So now you're ahead of one of the makeup trends at NYFW SS16 why not head down to the makeup counters and try some shades for yourself.
