Trend make ups can be notoriously difficult to pull off.  What we see on the catwalk is often bizarre, and flattering only to the models who wear them (sometimes not even then).  Personally, I love trend makeup, they are often seen as an artistic expression rather than a means to conform to any particular prescription of “beauty”.

What is interesting about catwalk makeup, is how heavily “bare faced beauty” is represented.  This look is polished and chic and very achievable for the consumer on the street to reproduce.  Bare Faced Beauty is created with flawless, touchable skin, groomed brows, a subtle sweep of mascara, a touch of blush and natural lips.
