The coolest makeup looks from the spring 2019 runways
A sheer bronze eye and glossy lip were the perfect neutral base for the bedazzled nails at Adeam.
It was all about holographic purple-pink highlighter traded across the cheekbones at Area.
Natural, Victorian-inspired romantic makeup at Brock Collection.
Glossy and bronzed skin and popsicle-pink lips at Cushnie et Ochs.
Nothing but a ruby red lipstick at Escada’s spring show.
A painterly eye fit for a museum at Lanyu.
A stained lip and antique gold eye drawn in a dramatic rounded shape.
Nude lips, contoured skin, and kohl-rimmed smoky eyes at Longchamp.
Gunmetal smokey eyes with no other visible makeup was all that was needed backstage at Nicole Miller.
Super-glossy skin with a sheer wash of fresh pink color on the eyes, lips, and cheeks backstage at Badgley Mischka.
Models at Monse wore subtle gold eyeshadow traced along their top and bottom lashlines and flicked out at the end like eyeliner with a stained pink lip.
One of spring’s biggest trends is shaping up to be super-glossy skin with sheer, minimal makeup done in neutral and nude shades, like seen at Noon By Noor.
A wash of soft metallic eyeshadow got a sweet and feminine touch thanks to sheer berry lips and red nails.
A no-makeup makeup look (save for a healthy cream flush) backstage at Pamella Roland.
The glitter trend may never die. Case in point: Tadashi Shoji’s galaxy-inspired glittery eyes and nails.
Sometimes the only piece of makeup you need is a sharp black eyeliner, traced along your inner waterline. With fresh and natural skin, black eyeliner has never looked so cool.
A stripe of acidic lime eyeliner was the only makeup statement needed backstage at Christian Siriano.
To honor the late designer’s sparkle, models at Kate Spade wore a scattering of gold glitter across their eyelids.
If Disney Villains were also Sephora VIB Rouge members you’d get the high-impact look from The Blonds. We’ve never seen a Disney villain wear electric neon eyeliner and black lips—but we’ll take it.
Makeup artist Grace Lee for Maybelline New York “juxtaposed the ethereal white and yellow fabrics in the Edwardian-inspired collection with a flushed cheek or berry-stained lip,” the brand stated in a release after the show. “The look is innocent but strong,” she said.
Red lips and a pop of red blush—with minimal eye makeup—backstage at Hellessy.
“The look is a bold foil-like lip in neutral shades. The metallic edginess is in keeping with the brashness of youth,” said makeup artist Kabuki backstage at Jeremy Scott. To get the look, he first used MAC Cosmetics Lip Pencil in Edge To Edge then added Mixing Medium Eyeliner in thin layer over the entire lip. He then used a combination of MAC Dazzleshadow Liquid in Love Yourself, and MAC Glitter in Pink.
Pink mascara never looked so pretty backstage at Ulla Johnson. Models also wore one of spring’s biggest trends: a lightly stained pink lip.
YSL Mascara Vinyl Couture in I’m the Madness
Makeup artist Diane Kendal created a golden smoky eye for the ’70s-inspired Tom Ford show. Her team of makeup artists meticulously blended the eyeshadow and liner until the look was hazy and glam.

Fresh-faced models at Self Portrait got scribbled white lines of liner drawn around their eyes.
Like most seasons, Tory Burch’s models walked the runway looking glowy and fresh-faced—with almost no visible makeup.
Maybelline New York makeup artist Erin Parsons created this glossy cobalt eye look backstage at Alice + Olivia.
An orange and pink flush carried over the cheeks, eyes, and brows backstage at Anna Sui.
Eyeliner took a downward turn (in a good way!) at Coach’s spring show. A handful of models walked the runway wearing a cat-eye that continued along the lower lashline and down into a triangle.
Models walked the Oscar de la Renta runway wearing MAC Cosmetics Dazzleliner in Holiday Time, which doesn’t even hit stores until next month. Makeup artists applied it precisely on the inner corner of the eye to add a touch of sparkle to the brown smoky eye.
A stripe of graphic cobalt gel eyeliner seen at Gabriela Hearst.
Makeup artist Dick Page made it all about a flush of cream blush backstage at the Michael Kors show.
Makeup artist Kelli J. Bartlett for Glamsquad created the lip at Lela Rose by layering several products. She started withtraced all over the lip, then added a layer of to just the center of the lip, blurring everything together with a brush.
Backstage at Prabal Gurung, models didn’t immediately jump into the hair and makeup chair. They first had their skin meticulously prepped by makeup artist Nam Vo using Whal Myung skincare. Then MAC Cosmetics makeup artist Diane Kendal enhanced their glowing skin with a touch of highlighter, conditioned lips, and smudgy brown eyes using the brand’s Coffee eyeliner.
