Leave it to Marc Jacobs to take one beauty trend and go to the extreme. Taking the whole “no makeup makeup” look that swarmed NYFW for Spring 2015 to the next level, Marc Jacobs commissioned his go-to makeup artist François Nars to massage moisturizer into the models’ skin. That’s it. No foundation. No concealer. No powder. Zero. Nada. Nothing on the skin except moisturizing lotion.
“It took me about 5 minutes,” laughed Francois Nars before the show, understandably looking more relaxed and chilled out than any other makeup pro who leads backstage at fashion week. “There is absolutely no makeup. Marc is always pretty extreme, so this no makeup makes a huge statement. And I don’t do middle of the road either.” The “makeup” team just worked NARS Skin Luminous Moisture Cream and Total replenishing Eye Cream into the skin and gave each model a quick facial massage, before they got fitted with jet-black, Ramones-inspired wigs. Canadian supe Heather Marks said, “I love it! It’s so nice to not have anything on my face.”
As the gaggle of international beauty editors blinked like crazy, trying to think of questions to ask a makeup artist who has applied ZERO makeup, Mr. Nars just smiled.

No mascara and no concelear. Before you have a beauty heart attack, here’s how you can pull it off. Image courtesy of ImaxTree.com.
If you’re going to follow the no mascara trend, you better have the rest of your face down pat, otherwise you’ll end up looking more like an extra on the Walking Dead (depending on how rough your Monday morning is), than fresh-faced model. At Zero + Maria Cornejo, models not only skipped the mascara, but even the concelaer under the eye. I know, you’re thinking that you’d rather give up your Louboutin’s than walk out the door without either, but makeup artist for Shiseido Dick Page filled me in on the secret to pulling off the no mascara/no concealer look.

Nail art is not dead (just being done in a much more subtle way). But there are two trends polish guru Deborah Lippmann deems so totally over. The French pedi and toe nails that are just too long.
“One of my pet peeves that I wish would go away is a toenail that hangs over,” says Lippmann. “Especially when they’re really groomed and intentionally long. To me it’s just not a good look, the nail should be on the nail bed. If you ask me long toe nails and the French pedi are the things I wish would go away,” says Lippmann.
