That’s why we’re taking a deep dive and offering you a step-by-step look at some of the best beauty moments, complete with tips and tricks for mastering it at home. So grab your makeup bag, sit down in front of the mirror and read on.

Dior’s Spring 2014 runway, set under a canopy of bright foliage, was meant to depict a beautiful yet eerie garden. Though Raf Simon’s striking collection featured a parade of neons, vibrant floral motifs and shimmering brocade, the makeup was arguably the most eye-catching aspect of the show. Makeup artist Pat McGrath had created variations on the theme of gold brocade. The most dramatic of her trio of looks consisted of golden and pastel blue eyes topped by gilded brows. Believe it or not, with a few tweaks this over-the-top look is very wearable. We’ll show you how to recreate a no-fuss version of this golden girl look.

When Gucci sent models down the runway at its Spring 2014 show in a mix of warm jewel tones, makeup artist Pat McGrath answered the call with a metallic smoky eye in analogous shades. The collection was inspired by the unexpected cocktail of luxe sportswear and the swirling Art Nouveau illustrations of artist Erté. Bright basketball shorts and black mesh t-shirts were followed by embroidered chiffon gowns and the makeup look—quite remarkably—complemented the wide variation in looks beautifully. Read more »

For the Rodarte Spring 2014 collection, the Mulleavy sisters reflected upon their own past. Their collection was inspired by their shared childhood in Los Angeles and models were decked out in looks fit for any wild child of the ’80s. Makeup artist James Kaliardos, working with Nars, created a look that played upon the graphic aesthetic of Hollywood circa 1980. He sculpted the models’ features with matte bronzers and made their eyes pop with a sharp black and white cat eye shape. It’s a totally wearable look for spring and easy for even makeup beginners to do. Read more »

When creating his Spring 2012 collection, Jonathan Saunders had an unlikely muse: chemically sedated Miami housewives from the ’50s. His models, clad in full skirts of Floridian pastels, sauntered down the runway with bronzed skin and flesh-toned lips. It was makeup artist Lucia Pieroni’s bold use of an oversized cat eye, however, that had beauty editors swooning.

By starting with a sunny glow, bringing some drama to the eyes, and slicking on a creamy nude lipstick, you can channel Saunders’ South Beach chic with just five products!

Runway to Real Life: 5 easy steps to get Louis Vuitton’s lash-tastic Spring 2012 look at home!

Rumour has it that when makeup artist Pat McGrath set out to create her “living doll” look for Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2012 show, she and her team pulled an all-nighter (at the Ritz, of course!) to glue together 10 sets of false lashes for each model. When the show opened with models perched on a revolving carousel in candy-coloured frocks, their flawless makeup and dense, fluttery lashes momentarily created the illusion that mannequins were instead the stars.

Despite its high maintenance appearance, it’s really simple to recreate this Barbie-esque beauty look. And forget 10 sets of falsies—you can pull it off with just five products in the bat of an eyelash!

When Phillip Lim created his Spring 2012 collection, fond memories of his childhood hobby of constructing and flying kites translated into a feeling of lightness and fun in his predominantly pastel collection. Models breezed down the runway wearing icy cool silver stripes of eyeshadow that perfectly complemented the fluttering fabric

The beauty look is really fresh and easy, so there isn’t much adjusting required to rock it in real life. You can recreate the eyes almost exactly—but add your own twist with a flush of pink on your cheeks and a creamy sheen to your lips. It’s a look that will breathe fresh air into your summer makeup routine.

Runway to Real Life: Try a softer version of YSL’s sultry spring look in just 4 easy steps!

“Young, eccentric and rich” were the words makeup artist Pat McGrath used to describe the beauty look she dreamed up for Yves Saint Laurent’s Spring 2012 show. McGrath painted models’ eyelids metallic brown, their lips metallic red and bleached away their brows. The look was confident and glamorous, if not a little bit severe.

I created a softer version of this dramatic look for real life with a few small tweaks and just four products. By opting for a wash of colour on the eyes instead of opaque brown, and by highlighting your brows with tinted gel instead of bleaching them off, you’ll be super glam without looking harsh. Finish with a pop of crimson red lipstick and you’ve got an elegant look for any occasion that requires an extra jolt of confidence!

Marni’s Spring 2012 collection was suspended between girlish youth and confident womanhood. Although the ‘60s chic looks were structured and clean, little hints of whimsy appeared throughout. It was the collection’s playful accessories—two-toned oxfords and clutches—that inspired makeup artist Tom Pecheux to create the orange and white beauty look. By using shadows instead of liners, and by perking up the cheeks and lips with sheer products, you can make this work for real life. The bright, light colours are what make this look youthful and fun, so don’t be shy about using these creamsicle hues.
