BEAUTY WATCH 

GROOMED MINIMALISM

Fresh-faced models walked the runways at Isabel Marant, Max Mara and Altuzarra as a pared-back approach to beauty continued to reign into the new season. A palette of soft glowing skin, peach lips and nude eyes takes a sophisticated turn with an emphasis on impeccable grooming.
