Yes, we know, fashion week revolves mainly around all the clothes and accessories. Yet, coming in at a very close second, are the makeup looks that will influence the beauty trends for the rest of the year to come. As New York Fashion Week comes to a close, we can now finalise which makeup and hair looks shone on the runways, making it to our annual list of favourites.
Thankfully, it is much easier to recreate a beauty look than it is to, say, get your hands on runway pieces. To help you glam up your beauty game this year, we’ve also included the products to add to your shopping list if you’re looking to pull off some of these new beauty trends.
Rodarte Vampire Brides
Rodarte channels Winona Ryder’s character in the Bram Stoker’s Dracula film of 1992 – dark matte lips in plum black with lip liners used to accentuate the cupid’s bow with precision. The face makeup was kept light with creamy porcelain complexion to contrast the deep lips.
Oscar de la Renta Neon Lips
The beauty look on Oscar de la Renta’s runway can be summed up by vivid poppy lips. The fluorescent red/orange lips are bold and glossy. Makeup artist Tom Pecheux explains “I was trying to create a colour that – to my eyes – work on every girl and every skin tone. I also wanted something really powerful to fit everyone”.
Anna Sui Punk Rock Glam
Exaggerated metallic eye shadows ruled the Anna Sui runway with dramatic emeralds greens with dramatic lashes. For the lips, makeup artist Pat McGrath chose a deep eggplant to complete the look.
Proenza Schouler Au Naturel Beauty
Proenza Schouler stuck with the concept “less is more” when it came to this year’s NYFW beauty looks. The show was all about slicked back wavy wet hair and barefaced glass skin and natural groomed brows.
Chromat Graphic Eyeliner
As 2020 is the year of the Olympics, Chromat played on the theme using graphic bright neon winged eyeliner to mimic athletic sneaker stripes. To create the ultra bright look, two contrasting colours were used from corner to wing, then accentuated with a deep black wedge liner.
