Beauty Sound Bites: Spring’s No-Makeup Makeup


marni“The makeup [this season] looks as if you did it yourself—almost like the makeup artist wasn’t there. The artistry is definitely [present], but you have to get up really close to see it. It’s sometimes a problem for us backstage because we keep asking ourselves as we’re going around to check the girls, ‘Is she done? Oh wait, yes, she is.’”

Many of the looks we’ve seen thus far for Spring 2014 have been so effortless (such as Marni, shown here), you almost think the models are wearing nothing on their faces at all. Under their flawless façades, however, are a lot of technique and strategic face painting. After all, it’s fashion month—everyone needs a little makeup magic to conceal the late nights and early call times.
