New York Fashion Week: The Beauty Trends
Natural, glitter, bleached eyebrows and more
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 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.
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.
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.
Wet Hair Effect
This traditional summer trend continues to root itself into the Autumn/Winter season, with stylists at both Helmut Lang and Philip Lim, using oil and styling gels to achieve the ultimate wet hair effect.
