Once upon a time (aka earlier this year), beauty editors huddled backstage at Fashion Week, recorder in hand, and asked the world’s most famous makeup artists like Pat McGrath questions like: ” What was your inspiration for this beauty look? ”
Times are different. We no longer walk in the back door of the New York Public Library to see Oscar de la Renta’s MAC beauty look (Tess McMillan looked so good). Instead, Fashion Week Spring 2021 is completely digital due to COVID-19, and this beauty writer examines next season’s makeup trends from … well, her couch. In her tie-dye pajamas.
For now, here are the biggest beauty looks the ELLE editors loved for Spring 2021. Hopefully, when it comes to Fall 2021 Fashion Week, we’ll be back to running between shows in heels.
A playful sprinkle of faux freckles on Jason Wu’s cheeks made us want a vacation that never was. “Models had to wear masks after application, and we knew the makeup wouldn’t budge,” said makeup artist Erin Parsons, who created the look using all Maybelline New York products. Parsons points to fake freckles? dipped in the product (she used the Super Stay liquid lip) and the speckle on her face.
“The Mulleavy sisters wanted the skin to be soft and fresh with rosy highlights that would capture the natural beauty of the California landscape,” Uzo, global art director for NARS, said via email. Wispy lashes (a nod to the ’60s) were created with the brand’s new Climax Extreme mascara, and the bold, bursting beef blood lip reminded us of last year’s vampy look, but seemed completely fresh in this new spring lens.
All of the models in Chromat’s spring / summer presentation sported masks realistically, which meant makeup was all about the eyes. “Shades and shadow linings were inspired by color spectra and beauty and the ability to abolish two-system and truly embracing gender binary spectra,” said Fatima Thomas, MAC senior national artist, via a press release. The negative space of this ombre look, which highlights the inner and outer corners of the eyes with undertones of green and blue, is especially doable at home.

Flowers? For spring? A bit revolutionary when painted on your face. Pat McGrath’s first show of the season was Anna Sui, where she adorned the faces of models Soo Joo Park (pictured above) with hand-painted stage stands. “We celebrated craftsmanship and creativity by pitting the whimsical against the minimal,” McGrath said. “The eyes are adorned with ethereal, eccentric florals – divine daisies and delicate pink flowers – with a few sheer petals to create a watercolor effect. The skin is sublimely perfected, the ultimate in ‘no makeup’ makeup.”
