Key Beauty Trends From NYFW

Since New York Fashion Week is well and truly over for another season, it’s time for us to discuss some of the newest beauty trends for the next few months.

You will find some of our usual favourites including dark lips, winged eyeliner, and even some 1960’s influences that would make even Twiggy proud.

Sheer eyeshadow

Where: Alexander Wang

In tune with the moody vibes of Alexander Wang’s latest collection, the makeup seemed to reflect this as well.

While skin was kept quite minimal and fresh, the attention was most definitely on the eyes. Rather than choosing a dark eye, makeup artists favoured an almost sheer lid which is quick and easy if you’re on-the-go.

Red lips

Where: 3.1 Phillip Lim

The girls at 3.1 Phillip Lim were sent down the runway with a bright red lip which was primarily blue-toned. This is perfect for pale girls who want a pop of colour in the colder months and is also quick and easy to apply.

While the lips were mostly matte, you can apply a thin gloss over the top for a glam look.

Matte skin

Where: Jason Wu

Matte skin ruled at Jason Wu, which is perfect for girls who love to keep their makeup from transferring. Powder those pesky areas such as an oily t-zone and chin to create a flawless look which lasts for hours.

Black kohl

Where: Rag and Bone

There’s no denying that models at Rag and Bone had a certain Edie Sedgewick influence about them. The cropped hair, black kohl-rimmed eyes, and glossy lips were a dead giveaway from the moment the first model stepped onto the catwalk.

Achieve this look with a super thin eye brush and slowly extend outwards from the waterline.

Where: Vera Wang

Filling in those thick, prominent brows isn’t out of fashion just yet, and the models at Vera Wang all sported this trendy look. Disguise any gaps with a powder or pencil and brush through your brows to make it look natural.
