From unapologetically unwearable to effortless and unadorned, spring beauty looks were a study in contrasts.
STATEMENT PIECES: Inspired by everything from outer space to insane asylums, beauty bordered on bombastic at shows that pushed the boundaries of theatrics.
MODELS AS MUSES: In a severe departure from more dramatic inspirations, a number of lead stylists took their cue from the models themselves for seemingly effortless hair and makeup looks that celebrated the individual.
SHADOW LAND: Lead makeup artists utilized eye shadows in a spectrum of shades to create color-infused effects that ranged from diffused to daring.
BRAID BRIGADE: From neatly pinned to savage and free-flowing, braids were a go-to style for lead hairstylists looking to complement the spring collections.
TIP TOP: Nails — which featured artful shapes, graphics, textures and shades — were a key part of beauty looks this season.
