From natural to metallic, and wet hair to bleached eyebrows – Buro 24/7 compiles the most notable beauty trends present at New York Fashion Week

Natural Hues

Natural shades covering everything from eyes to lips defined the look for copious shows during New York Fashion Week. Designers including Alexander Wang, Jason Wu, Lacoste, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Victoria Beckham, Proenza Schouler, Vera Wang, to name a few, all favoured minimalistic make-up looks, with nothing more than a touch of mascara and barely visible cream eye shadow hues. Wine-coloured lipstick - which was the favoured look last season, has stepped aside to make way for a more subdued natural colour palette.

Black Eyeliner

Black eyeliner has cast a shadow over bright colours this season. A variety of black eyeliner looks proved popular for many make-up artists at shows such as Jill Stuart, Peter Som, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Reem Acra and Donna Karan. The look was varied, some artists defined both the upper and lower lid, while others created a winged cat eye look.

Metallic Lustre

Disco, futurism, punk - all of these beauty elements displayed a metallic effect at many shows. Tom Pecheux created a green shimmer look for Altuzarra, Charlotte Tilbury used silver eye shadow for Donna Karan, and James Kaliardos used glitter to enhance the nostalgic-inspired fashion presented by Rodarte.

Bleached Eyebrows

One of the more daring beauty looks showcased during New York Fashion Week came in the form of bleached eyebrows - a stark contrast to the big, bushy brows that topped the beauty charts thanks to model of the moment Cara Delevingne. While bleached eyebrows only made an appearance at Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs, don't be surprised to see this nascent trend make its way to other fashion weeks.
