Fall Beauty Trends We LOVED From NYFW
Overdone brows, excessive contouring and last season's monochrome eyelids were nowhere to be seen this NYFW. This year's runways displayed a healthy freshness that beamed with natural beauty and earthy light. Stick around to see our favorite trends!
The Common Ground
Fashion stars such as Michael Kors, Tory Burch, Alexander Wang and Helmut Lang – among others – placed a strong focus on the luminous, dewy skin of their models, and sometimes emphasized it with humid foundation, silky highlighter a or soft lip tint. Strikingly fresh youth and fresh-faced beauty made a complete comeback, even in the most couture of runways. Michael Kors even chose to ditch concealer entirely! Of course, the minimalistic natural beauty look goes perfectly with his elegant palette.
After looking at the beauty trends displayed by the top designers this NYFW, it's safe to assume that vegan makeup will also experience a boom. After all, what better way to celebrate natural beauty than with natural products?
A Touch Of Mystique
Mediterranean vibes struck the runway like never before this season. Marc Jacobs’ models came strutting down the catwalk wearing gorgeous turbans, anding a touch of mystery and ethnic beauty to the classic American elegance of his designs. Strong, fiery cat eyes were the look of the day. Some had razor-sharp wings, some were soft like almonds. Stunning, surprising and culturally inspired: this edgy and passionate beauty look paired perfectly with Jacobs' expressive collection.
Helmut Lang’s models came down the runway with fresh faces and bright, clean eyes. The saturation, however, was concentrated on the boldness of the lips. vibrant red and unapologetically dark maroons were the tints of choice. The message is clear: if dark hues are what your makeup routine is about, don't let the bright spring sun keep you from showing your style! *winter is coming*
One splash of the romantic tint was spotted in the Laura Vassar and Kris Brock's stunning show – and it was fabulous. Makeup guru Gucci Westman even said that after seeing the line, she immediately knew she wanted pink. Her goal was ambitious: to give pink and intricate edge. With that in mind, she created the ‘worn and lived in’ look – which rocked the runway in no time. The artist used fine-tipped kohl crayon and a metallic lipstick that she dragged across the lid and water lines. The goal was to achieve perfect imperfection. Isn't that the best kind?
