These Backstage Makeup Artists Reveal Their Beauty Inspirations At NYFW And LFW S/S 2019

The no makeup makeup has long been a staple of catwalks season after season and this is not merely to avoid the models’ faces stealing attention from the designer pieces, as some of you might assume. In fact, barefaced beauties have become much of a trend as statement makeup in the beauty department.

The Spring/Summer 2019 shows in New York and London was no exception. They have kicked off a few months ago and Adeam, Phillip Lim, Delpozo, Christopher Kane, and Toga have all confirmed that the trend is here to stay. And while minimal, natural beauty is not a new look on the runway, the trend has truly become a refreshing sight showcased in shows. To channel the look yourself, ahead, we compiled the most wearable no makeup makeup looks made by some of the best NARS Cosmetics makeup artists. 



“The Adeam girl this season is all about a fun 90’s feel. The look is glossy lips and glittery eyes that reflect light even in a nightclub.”
Sada Ito, NARS Global Artistry Director


Philip Lim

“The makeup look this season is inspired by a person who doesn’t stay long in one place, a wanderer, with sun-kissed cheeks.”
Francelle Daly using NARS Cosmetics



“This season’s look is a summer fresh, natural matte complexion – like a flower. It’s perfect skin with rose-pink eyes and cheeks.”
Monica Marmo using NARS Cosmetics


Christopher Kane

“The inspiration is this idea of a sexy, nature girl who is effortlessly beautiful. The look is very Christopher Kane – it’s gorgeous skin, fresh makeup, with a boyish eyebrow.”
Lucia Pieroni using NARS Cosmetics



“The beauty look this season is a minimal, effortless look with hint of glossy eyes and skin. –Sada Ito, NARS Global Artistry Director
