Now it seems the next big trend might be “face lace”, a label coined by makeup artist Phyllis Cohen, who has worked with stars including David Bowie, Annie Lennox and Steve Strange and first debuted the eclectic look at the autumn/winter shows.
The carefully crafted designs are designed to emulate makeup, and are made of a fine lace which sits close to the skin, making it seem as if the wearer’s face has been delicately tattooed.
“Face lace is the magic answer to so many people's plea of ‘I wish I could do make-up like you,” explained Cohen. “Now anyone can create artistic make-up effects like a pro.”
While the look is certainly a stand-out on the catwalk, it’s difficult to tell how well it will translate to the street – though, as stylelite.com points out, edgy celebrities such as Lady Gaga will definitely want to take advantage.
"We can definitely see fashion-forward celebrities trading the traditional red carpet eyemakeup for the Face Lace," the blog commented.
