In case you missed it, fashion month has kicked off, and just like in years past, the runways of New York have delivered an influx of new beauty inspiration for us to pour over. From dramatic hairstyles and floral accessories to sparkly eyes and barely-there makeup, here are the best beauty looks from the Spring/Summer 2019 shows at New York Fashion Week.
Inspired by a 1950s colour palette, the beauty look at Marc Jacobs kept the focus on the eyes with a wash of pastel on the lids, tight-lined eyes and loads of lashes, complemented by clean skin and a sheer glossy lip.
If the brief for the Rodarte show was ‘fairytale’, NARS makeup artists and TRESemmé hairstylists absolutely nailed it. While the combination of yellow, pink and blue eyes (sans any mascara), bright pink cheeks, red lips and dramatic flower crowns might seem excessive, the overall look achieved the perfect whimsical balance.
To honour the late designer’s sparkle, models at the Kate Spade show wore a scattering of gold glitter across their eyelids. In order to emphasise the statement eye look, both the base makeup and hair were kept natural and pared-back.
Summer may be coming to an end in New York but Hellessey offered up the ultimate beauty inspiration for those warm days coming soon here in Australia. Messy hair, glowing skin and a pop of colour on the lips? We know what look we’ll be debuting for those Sunday sessions this summer.
While the makeup looks from the Self Portrait show may not become your go-to office look, you can’t deny they’re not beautiful. Known for their effortlessly feminine clothing, Self Portrait opted for a beauty look that complemented their classic styles. We love how seamlessly the combination of sleek hair, flawless skin and bright pink liner along the top lip worked together.
Rather than opting for a modern beauty look like many of the other shows, Brock Collection went back in time with this period hair and makeup. Everything from the romantic hairstyle to the stained red lip oozed sophistication and timeless elegance.
