New York Fashion Week has come to a close. But while we have to wait until fall for the clothes, there's nothing stopping us from jumping on the beauty trends. Here are this season's most buzzed about hair and makeup looks.
We're said it before and we'll say it again—the lower lashes are the new upper lashes. For proof, look no further than the Jeremy Scott show, where makeup artist Kabuki glued individual, extra-long MAC lashes on the lower lash line. Then, at Tadashi Shoji, Pep Gay for MAC applied loose glitter between each of the lower lashes for a '60s rock 'n' roll feel.
Whether you've been out partying all night or not, you want your eyeliner to look like it. At Alexander Wang, Diane Kendal for NARS smudged kohl eyeliner between the upper and lower lashes, as well as on the waterlines for maximum impact.
Bad hair day? Throw an accessory on it. At Tory Burch, Redken creative director Guido Palau adorned each undone-feeling ponytail with an asymmetrical velvet ribbon. Similar throw-a-statement-piece-on-it hair could be seen at Marchesa, where gorgeous bloom hair accessories were placed on top of the wispy, sideswept updos.
Just as the '90s nail piercing trend began to remerge on Instagram, Baja East sent a few of their models down the runway with pierced statement digits. The pièce de résistance of the manicure being a long, silver mesh chain hanging from the thumbnail.
At Oscar de la Renta, Tom Pecheux for MAC dreamed up a decidedly spring-feeling eye statement for fall with pink eyeliner slashed above the upper lash line and lavender shadow smudged on the lids. We noticed similar pops of color at Prabal Gurung, where Kendal used MAC's Chromacake pigment to paint sharp, geometrics shapes below the models' brows.
Fashion week has *finally* started embracing individuality in the hair department and this season, high-octane dye jobs ruled. Our favorite of the week had to be model Duckie's electric blue hair, which was created by Guido Palau for Redken at Baja East. Palau teamed together Redken City Beats semi-permanent shades in Brooklyn Blue and Times Square Teal for the eye-popping hue.
At Calvin Klein, Pat McGrath gave the model's a no-makeup makeup look with the exception of silver shadow dabbed on the inner corners of the eyes. A similar look could be seen at Proenza Schoulder, where Kendal for MAC accented the inner corners with white matte eyeshadow. Both techniques are amazing for covering up darkness in the too-often-ignored area of the face.
