Nordstrom National Beauty Director Loredana Grama and the Nordstrom Beauty Office identify the biggest beauty trends on the spring ’16 runways.
In a matter of eight days, our beauty team hit up 34 New York Fashion Week shows, grazing shoulders backstage with industry bigwigs the likes of Bobbi Brown, François Nars, Deborah Lippmann, Charlotte Tilbury and Jin Soon Choi, and taking notes on spring’s most popular makeup crazes.
What stood out to them? For one, natural, effortless makeup that left the focus on inner beauty. Skin was fresh and radiant and eyes were often left bare, except for a swoosh of nude shadows here and there. If there was a pop of color, you can bet it was on the lips, like the pouts M·A·C Cosmetics sent down the runway for Zac Posen. Expect glowing complexions, mushroom-tinged shadows and undone brows come spring for an easy au naturale look.
Why is Rob Lowe smiling? Well, he’s 30-plus years into showbiz as a dramatic and comedic actor and nobody’s sick of him yet. He’s got twelve racks sitting pretty on his wrist. And he’s about to throw a perfect spiral.
But besides all that: Rob Lowe is smiling because he’s super stoked on his PROFILE skincare line. Far from a vanity project, PROFILE is a sincere labor of love. And it’s available exclusively at Nordstrom.
Mr. Lowe is literally stoked, as his character Chris Traeger on Parks and Recreation would say. On the phone he was chipper and came off like he had all the time in the world to chat (he did not; he was literally in the middle of filming his new TV show, The Grinder).
Read more below about Lowe’s favorite Chris Traeger line, which XM Radio station he plays while chillaxing in his pool—and why he’s 51 but looks 36.
Blushing barefaced beauties graced the Simone Rocha lineup Saturday with a barely-there Kabuki-inspired look courtesy of M•A•C Cosmetics makeup artist Sam Bryant.
The Marc Jacobs show has long been known as the finale of New York Fashion Week, so it’s no wonder his is one of the most highly anticipated—and buzzed about—shows. We were doubly lucky to not only get the backstage details on the look created by NARS, but to get those details from Mr. François Nars himself —the makeup legend and mastermind of the Marc Jacobs beauty look.
Gorgeous skin and a gorgeous lip were front and center today at Marchesa. Gucci Westman for M•A•C Cosmetics chose a fuchsia lip as the focal point. She was inspired by the bright and pastel fabrics in the collection, and she also said, “it looks great with all skin tones. Fuchsia is chic; it’s like vintage Saint Laurent”.
An eye that looked like a jewel was the focal point of the desert-goddess look backstage at Alice + Olivia today. Created by stila Cosmetics and inspired by the clothing collection’s warm tangerine tones, the color and texture of gold took center stage, giving the models a cool, desert-girl vibe.
The makeup at Zac Posen today was inspired by a fresh, youthful and sophisticated girl. We love this simple, approachable look with that pop-of-red pout.
Laura Mercier reinvented the classics on Sunday at Jenny Packham, combining rock ‘n’ roll cat eyes with traditional red pouts for a fun take on modern femininity.

Less is more—at least it was today when industry veteran Bobbi Brown created an au naturale look for Tibi’s earthy spring palette.
