top beauty looks of fashion week spring/summer 15

From taking away Cara Delevingne's moneymakers (eyebrows) at Givenchy, to exaggerated doll-faces at Vivienne Westwood, and absolutely no make-up at Marc Jacobs, beauty on the spring/summer 15 runways was a vision of extremes. To celebrate The Beautiful...

Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci

Rodarte's mermaids were a different type of sea-punk to the #wavy kind birthed by the internet. With dewy skin, shimmering, coral eye-shadow and pierced eyebrows, these sirens are the ocean's prettiest anarchists - but you'll only spot them once in a blue lagoon, so make like i-D and always keep one eye open!

Alexander McQueen
Got a fetish for savage beauty? Pat McGrath framed Sarah Burton's models' faces in black lacquer frames to match her "geisha meets gladiator" theme. These are the best looking samurai you'll wish you never met...

Dries van Noten
Dreams van Noten's bare-faced pixies wore just one thin, metallic, gold line on their lower lip, and floated down his moss-covered catwalk, pretending to be Pre-Raphelite Ophelias.

Vivienne Westwood Gold Label
Dame Vivienne's eco-warriors conjured up Truly Scrumptious visions of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang's real life wind up doll, with their overly exaggerated long lashes, red lips and rosy cheeks. It's so delicious, honest Truly, you're the answer to our wishes!

Dot your eyes and cross your knees because Alessandro Dell'Acqua's gal is a lady! Pastel eye-shadow and spidery lashes with a black dot underneath the lower lash line, the Rochas girl is smart, feminine and fun. 

Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci made us all appreciate our eyebrows a lot more after it went viral earlier this year, but the models stalking the Givenchy runway had us second guessing their motives, because their bleached brows were bangin'. Even Kim Kardashian followed in her lil' sister and Riccardo's latest muse, Kendall Jenner's footsteps, turning up to her 19th birthday party with her own arches dyed blonde.

Just Cavalli
When in doubt, just add eyeliner. Draw just below the lash line to make your eyes look bigger, match with a 60s side parting and you're hot to trot.

Haider Ackermann
Pale oranges, white lashes and bleached eyebrows - Haider Ackermann's dream girls used texture instead of hue to contour their faces, with matte skin was blended into shiny lids and glossy lips.

Mary Katrantzou
Mary Katrantzou's gorgeous girls are glowing in the perfect no make-up make-up. If all else fails, nude never fails to impress.

Marc Jacobs
Cosmetics may be easy to buy but everyone knows happiness is the best make-up, and Marc Jacobs cashed in on that truth. So if none of the above catches your eye, boost your mood and ditch the slap because we think you're pretty without any make-up on!
