Tracy Reese

At the Tracy Reese presentation, every model’s face was adorned with a pop of color. Some with rosy blush on the apples of their cheeks, others with pops of blue on their lids, and a select few with a gorgeous red-orange matte lip. (Photo: Getty Images)

Philipp Plein

Paired with a graphic cat eye, this glossy dark red lip creates a vampy effect on Adriana Lima. On this runway, makeup looks were individualized, and no two were exactly the same.(Photo: Getty Images)
