Flashback Friday: At Long Lash

-------

willyFlashback Friday is a feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.

The Model: Willy van Rooy

The Moment: Full Fringe

The Motivation: With the rise of Kardashian and Ko., faux lashes have lost a little of their Old Hollywood appeal. And admittedly, we’ve never been that adept at gluing on fake fringe. This season, however, we may just have to step up our skills. Makeup artists are lashing out on the reg—from Pat McGrath at Gucci and Versace to Lucia Pieroni at Rochas. In lieu of reality TV, however, we plan to look at the runways and shots like this British Vogue image for beauty inspiration. The photo was captured in 1967, but judging by what’s trending on the Fall 2014 catwalks, we doubt anyone would bat an eyelash if we said this was snapped in the past few weeks.

Flashback Friday: Shine On

The Model: Chrystèle Saint Louis Augustin

The Moment: Glitter, glitter everywhere

The Motivation: With incredibly dreary weather descending upon New York (hello, Polar Vortex), it was with a very happy heart that we noticed an uplifting trend developing on the NYFW catwalks. Glitter, in all its glory, was popping up everywhere, from Altuzarra’s greenish-gold lids to Rodarte’s shimmering lips. This shot of Saint Louis Augustin from a 1997 issue of British Vogue is just another example of how sparkles (combined with a David Bowie-esque slash) can make a serious beauty statement.

Flashback Friday: Piercing Gaze

The moment: Chic Hardware

The motivation: As we shift toward a beauty landscape that celebrates individualism, edgy looks like androgynous hairstyles, wild lipstick shades, and designer grills hardly raise an eyebrow anymore. But the statement at the Christian Dior Fall 2001 runway show was delightfully shocking, even by today’s standards. Models wore multiple studs and hoops through their lips, septums, and other unexpected spots on their faces. The bold accessories were paired with colorful hairpieces and graphic makeup. Designers continue to experiment with punk rock jewelry, like the ear cuffs at Fendi and the knuckle rings at Chanel Couture—and they’re even letting models keep in their own adornments while they work. One chic example: Katlin Aas’ cluster of earrings in the Helmut Lang Pre-Fall lookbook. Her piercings were a nice contrast to the classic colors and silhouettes in the line. With fashion month in full swing, we can’t wait to see what rebellious touches will be in demand come fall.

Flashback Friday: Pretty in Pink

The Model: Niki Taylor

The Moment: Sweet and Smoky

The Motivation: Ever since Guillaume Henry sent oversize “teddy bear-textured” pink coats down the runway at Carven’s Fall 2013 show, the fashion set fully embraced the pastel hue. But when it comes to wearing such a bold color on your body, how to plan your makeup? You can never go wrong with red lipstick, but for a look that’s slightly more unexpected, take inspiration from this early-nineties shot of Niki Taylor lensed by Arthur Elgort. Sure, the gold jewelry is gaudy and the shadow is extended a little too close to her brows, but strip away all the excess and those luscious lashes and perfectly nude lips direct attention to the outfit—which, in the case of a rose-colored jacket, is always a plus.

Flashback Friday: In Search of Bright Lights

The Model: Stella Tennant

The Moment: Nearly Neon

The Motivation: With New York fashion week right around the corner, now is the time we start wondering what beauty looks and trends we’ll discover at the tents (or, in the case of many a designer, the multiple off-site locations). Barely-there makeup was de rigueur last season, but there was the occasional jolt of color that brightened our day—take, for example, Gucci Westman’s traffic-stopping orange pouts at Rag & Bone. It may have been a first for Marcus Wainwright and David Neville, but Stella Tennant and readers of this 1995 issue of i-D were already well versed in the power of electro-tangerine lips. The model’s loud mouth is a prime example of what we’d love to see more of for Fall 2014 to counteract the cold, gray skies we’ll likely have to endure while schlepping from show to show.
