NY Fashion Week Spring 2013 Beauty Round-up Part 1: The Emperor’s New Clothes

I wish I could tell you I’ve got some exciting new trends to share with you from New York Fashion Week Spring 2013, but it seems like all you need is concealer, contour powder and an eyebrow brush to pull off most of the looks I’ve seen up to this point in the week. Last season (Fall 2012) we started to see the trend of the “no makeup” look, but this season seemed practically devoid of color and dimension, with a few brilliant exceptions like Monique Lhuillier and Peter Som.  It kills me when a makeup artist waxes poetic about his or her inspiration and in the meantime every face is practically makeup-free, hence my nickname for this season — The Emperor’s New Clothes.

Okay, there are just too many looks to cover. I didn’t even get to my favorite look yet, so I guess you’ll simply have to check back for Part 2 of my NY Fashion Week Beauty coverage later this week!
