The Future of Beauty

Is the future of beauty to cover everything up? If you follow beauty, you most likely follow fashion, yes? And you most likely know that Alexander McQueen has this futuristic feel to all of his collections. From the 'claw' pump to the latest Fall/Winter 2012 collection featuring facial visors, does the future of beauty mean covering it all up?

You may be wondering, what the heck is a face visor...well, see for yourself in the video below of Alexander McQueen's latest womenswear fashion show, his Fall/Winter 2012 collection here.

As you can see, you don't see much of the model's face...I'm sure this look featuring a semi-transparent visor over the eyes was quite a change, and certainly a challenge for the makeup artist.That being said, they seemed to stick to this very futuristic feel, with beautiful ivory skin and a whitish-blonde wig. 

So now I sit and ponder, how could we take away from this show and put some trends from runway to everyday... I think I'll pass!
