Backstage Beauty: Alexander Wang’s Sporty Glow

Alexander Wang Spring 2015

It looks like his time at Balenciaga is giving Alexander Wang’s namesake line a few couture flourishes. For his spring 2015 show, which was inspired by sneakers — the designer did get his start designing with a major streetwear vibe, remember — the beauty look was a glowing, bare-faced flush that looked like that elusive post-workout glow.

“Strong and energetic,” said NARS Cosmetics’ Diane Kendal when asked about the fresh look. “The look is clean with moisturized skin paired with accentuated highlighting and contouring to bring out the strength of the girl’s features.”

You can get that glow by heading to your local hot yoga studio, but if you don’t have the time or the flexibility, a few key products are all you’ll need. Kendal used Nars Cappadoce Multiple to carve out cheekbones (it’s a great matte shade that looks completely natural) and enhanced that sculpting with a few swipes of highlighter. Wang’s models got a preview of a new product coming from Nars next spring, but your go-to highlighter will do the trick. Make sure you’re skin’s super glowing and moisturized and you’ll get this easygoing, fresh-faced look.

The look showcased bare lips, a trend we’ve seen on many designers’ runways, so make sure you moisturize with your favorite balm for a no-fuss finishing touch.
