For Spring 2015, the beauty looks spotted on the runways of New York and London were all about wet, slicked-back hair and minimal makeup. In Milan, designers shifted focus. From graphic baby blue liner fashioned from thin leather strips at Fendi to artful winged cat-eyes and skinny brows at Prada, the overarching view – beauty lies in the eyes.
