4 Beauty trends to watch from New York Fashion Week AW17
Best makeup moments
It seems like lining your eyes the classic, cat-eye way isn't going to cut it this season. Elevate your eye makeup with graphic lines such as Prabal Gurung's strong, power woman inspired look, or go with a minimal effect using white eyeliner seen at Tome. An even more surprising turn this season is the use of punchy hues at Oscar de la Renta, where a slick of neon pink is complemented with cyan on the eyelids.
romantic, luminous skin
Instead of the no-makeup makuep look, designers are opting for glowing, flawless skin that exudes a youthful vibe. At Erin Fetherston, the skin was kept clean with tinted lips, while Lela Rose and Monse had flushed cheeks (think draping i.e. using blush to contour) that looked ultra romantic and feminine.
The smoky eye has been elevated this season, with less rules and more room for smudging. Take inspiration from Brandon Maxwell's dark smoky metallics that were achieved using colour pigments for a 3D effect, or go with a precise, extended cat-eye look at Phillip Plein—one that includes full, voluminous lashes. At The Blonds, an intensely smudged look was given a glossy finish for high impact.
deep ombré lips
No Autumn/Winter season is complete without a dark lip trend. Take on the gradient lip effect as spotted at Jill Stuart, or add a layer of gloss for a vampy look seen at Jonathan Simkhai. For a daytime makeup look, go with a muted, berry stain for a subtle effect (Mara Hoffman).
