Unless you're a celebrity attending a red carpet event, you're going to have to wait until next spring to get your hands on all the clothes and accessories that came down the runway during spring 2016 fashion month. That's where makeup artists win: we can copy their looks — spread their genius — right away. Following the last few seasons' emphasis on minimal makeup, many makeup artists this season applied bright, sparkling elements to an otherwise bare face. Emphatically easy to replicate, these looks happen to be great for the holidays, or any time the weather's got you down, really.
Dries Van Noten
Simple, restrained and totally bomb, the deep blue glitter adorning the models' eyelids at Dries Van Noten stands at the intersection of easy and impactful. Wear it to the movies, or wear it to your best friend's wedding.
Makeup artist and newly minted brand creator Pat McGrath debuted her first beauty product at Prada, a gold dust painted onto the models' lips. With an otherwise bare face, this could seriously be wearable in real life. Start with your coolest friend's holiday party and work up to the office.
Clean face, tomato red lips. How can you lose?
Pick as many elements of this look as you like: maybe it's just about drawing on some graphic swooshes below your lower lash line, or perhaps you dip your ears in glitter and leave the rest unvarnished. Or do the full thing and go out dancing.
Glitter. Joy. This beauty look is self-explanatory.
Vibrant in the most wearable way, the look at Tanya Taylor focused on sunny cheeks and pink lips. It'll almost look like you escaped to the beach over Thanksgiving.
What an epically moody lip at Miu Miu, set off by schoolgirl pigtails. Grab all of your lip colors — maybe a blue eyeshadow to create that wonderful navy tone — and get staining.
What's more appropriate for winter than rosy cheeks, rosy lips and rosy... eyes? Mary Katrantzou's models hit the runway wearing a variety of colored mascaras, though the hot pink shade vibed most enchantingly against the blush and lip color.
