The grooming trends that shaped New York fashion week S/S 2013

Diane Kendal gave models translucently pale complexions and completely matte lips
Alexander Wang: Make-up artist Diane Kendal kept things simple by giving models translucently pale complexions and completely matte lips, so the focus was on the graphic hair ornamentation that Guido Palau fashioned: thick black tape that ran all the way down the centre-parting of ponytails and into forehead territory. Words: Rosa Bertoli

Belstaff's Spring collection

Belstaff: Belstaff's Spring collection was a modern take on its utilitarian heritage, so grooming was fresh and natural, with a well-groomed brow and subtly-painted lip taking centre-stage. Hair was glossy with a delicate wave

The monochromatic looks at Donna Karan were lit up by the bold fuschia-shaded eyes

Donna Karan: On the other end of the grooming spectrum, the monochromatic looks at Donna Karan were lit up by the bold fuschia-shaded eyes courtesy of Charlotte Tilbury, while hairstylist Eugene Souleiman's wind-blown hair consisted of wispy locks being teased out of a relaxed chignon and fixed upwards

A clean-faced look by make-up artist Mayia Alleaume

Lacoste: The graphic collection at Lacoste was softened with a clean-faced look by make-up artist Mayia Alleaume, who gave models a generous dollop of gloss on the lips. Lauren Philippon's hairstyles had a similarly youthful flavour, with shiny straight locks neatly brushed to the side of the face

The makeup of the model done by Francois Nars and hair done by Guido Palau

Marc Jacobs: Francois Nars' focus here was clearly on the eye and the brow - the former shaded in a smoky black, the latter lined in a graphic arch. Guido Palau back-combed locks and styled  them into a bold side-parted low ponytail

Michael Kors' optical use of colours was picked up by make-up artist Dick Paige

Michael Kors: Michael Kors' optical use of colours was picked up by make-up artist Dick Paige and translated into a single bright line of colour on eyelids (green for brunettes, turquoise for blondes). The designers' nod to the 1960s served as inspiration for hair guru Orlando Pita, who created a shiny do that was pulled back into a half-ponytail

Rodarte: With the collection's decorative elements stealing the show as is usually the case at Rodarte, James Kaliardos went for a natural foundation, adding a hint of gloss to keep brows in place and a darker tone to define the lips. Odile Gilbert pulled perfectly straight hair over the head, creating a sleek hair-band that highlighted the intricate earpieces worn by the models

The make up done by Diane Kendal and hair done by Odile Gilbert

Thakoon: Diane Kendal sharpened cheeks with an intense shadow of bronzed dust, framing the face with a thin 1930s-inspired brow. Hair by Odile Gilbert was ultra sleek and centre-parted, secured with a few pins on each side of the head to contrast with the soft waves which flowed from the nape down
