Makeup trends at the New York Fashion Week
New York’s Fashion Week has allowed us to see what the new makeup trends will be for the 2014 Spring and Summer seasons.

For Rag & Bone, bright orange lipstick dominated for a pop look that doesn’t remain unnoticed.
Donna Karan, Anna Sui and Marc Jacobs runways saw a more pronounced eye makeup look, while Francois Narsfor Jacobs went with cat eyes underlined by a rich blue eyeliner.
