New York Fashion Week came and went very quickly, but it really amped up our hair and beauty inspo for the seasons to come.
Now with the shows behind us, we take a look back at the 5 best beauty moments from the runways plus the products and expert tricks used to create them, so you can try them for yourself.
Highlight the body
Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty show really displayed the epitome of glowing goddesses. All of the models were doused in her new product, Diamond Bomb All Over Diamond Veil, and if that doesn’t make us want to buy the product then I don’t know what will. Makeup artist Priscilla Ono dusted every model in this product and it’s glow is so fine that it looks like wet skin. LOVE IT. If you’re not feeling that extra, try dusting your favourite highlighter over your décolletage and shoulders for a sun kissed, healthy glow.
Hair Hardware is a thing
Hair accessories have always been a hit, but it’s how you clip it that counts. American designer Tibi took hair clips to a new level by clasping them haphazardly through the lengths. Perhaps this could replace fascinators for Melbourne Cup? Or if you’re running late to work but want to look put together… this could be a look that works for you!
I know what you’re thinking… Smokey eyes? They’ve been around forever, but we can trust Tom Ford to step up the smokey eye game. Swapping charcoal for tawny hues, the artists used a palette with muted browns and golds and created a bangin’ look. Finish the look with a rosy pink blush and nude lips.
While the threat of pencil thin brows making a comeback (trends always make their way back around!!) Brandon Maxwell sent brushed up brows and bushy brows down the runway and pushed our nightmare thin brows to the back of our mind. Tom Pecheux, backstage makeup artist, strongly endorses using multiple colours of brow products in order to create more dimension and ultimately, natural looking brows.
Bright colours rule the world
One of the greatest moments from fashion week was Rodarte’s bright eyeshadow looks. Makeup artist James Kaliardos was inspired by a Picasso exhibition at the Tate and used primary colours to create soft geometric shapes on the face by pressing NARS shadows onto the lid. He then blended the edges into a soft wing. Kaliardos recommended using a lid primer to ensure the colour is at full opacity and doesn’t crease – he used NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base.
