These Makeup Looks Bring Us Back to Art Class

By Klaudia Tirico / February 19, 2015

One of the most interesting trends on the New York Fashion Week runways is bringing us back to lazy days in art class. Remember when teachers would make you create your own version of famous art movements? Abstract art was usually the easiest, since it only involved short brush strokes of various colors. In a similar vein, the abstract makeup looks at Zero + Maria Cornejo and Proenza Schouler are super easy to recreate. If you dare.

At Zero + Maria Cornejo (pictured above), Shiseido Artistic Director Dick Page created a look that “resembles paint strokes, similar to the graphics of the prints in the collection.” The look involved a random streak of metallic gray (a mix of Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Caviar and Tin) “customized to each of the girls’ faces” for a bold, tribal effect that “looked like accessories or jewelry.” 

Meanwhile, at Proenza Schouler, Diane Kendal for MAC was inspired by abstract expressionism when creating the a brushstroke-like streaks. She used a black MAC Chromacake to paint on the stokes across the inner corner of models’ eyes.
