1 Glitter-Flecked Skin
ImaxTree

Just when we thought the world had reached sparkle fatigue, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi models walked the London runway with glitter dusted across their foreheads and hairlines. And, suffice it to say, we're now officially considering showing up to the office with a full face of glitter.

If gilded, Studio 54–level skin isn't your thing, you can still cash in on the sparkly trend in the most minimalist of ways, by tapping a sheer layer of iridescent cream over your lids and cheekbones.

2 Punk-Rock Lids
ImaxTree

Leave it to Tom Ford to send his models down the runway wearing the coolest freaking smoky eye we've seen in a minute—thanks to the contrast of smudgy, charcoal-gray eyeshadow against dewy, glowing skin. It's a combination that's begging to be recreated this weekend, so please unearth the intimidating eyeshadow palettes from the back of your drawer and proceed with zero caution.

3 Twiggy-Inspired Lashes
ImaxTree

These thick, Twiggy-level lashes gave the lineup at Carven major '60s vibes. Considering every realm of the beauty world has been fixated on the '90s as of late—hello, claw clips—we're welcoming this super-mod, flash-to-the-past look with open arms.

Thankfully, the look is easy to get at home: Just layer on mascara, and, while wet, gently press sections of lashes together to form a spiked look.

4 Glossy Red Lips
ImaxTree

Strong red lips and bare skin were a staple in a number of 2018's shows—lookin' at you, Brandon Maxwell and Sally LaPointe—but we were especially keen on Huishan Zhang's approach: crimson lips with a super-glossy finish. We plan on taking cues from this look well into the spring and summer, especially since all it requires is a basic red lipstick and a shiny red topcoat.

5 Neon Accents
ImaxTree

It's tough to bring neon into a makeup look without going there, but Tibi's subtle-yet-vibrant flicks on each model's eyelids may be our favorite use of a neon palette yet (especially against minimal face makeup).

6 Full, Feathered Brows
ImaxTree

On the Emilia Wickstead runway full, feathered brows were the centerpiece in each look. If you aren't naturally endowed with thick-as-hell brows, swipe a tinted gel back and forth, like a windshield wiper, over your brows to coat both sides of the hair for a fuller finish.

7 Inner-Corner Liner
ImaxTree

The Carven show played with the versatility of black eyeliner by tracing the inner corner of models' eyes in a tiny V, resulting in a simple, surprisingly brilliant spin on a classic cat eye.

8 Smoky Peach Eyes
ImaxTree

Millennial pink showed very little signs of life at the 2018 shows (and we're not mad about it, to be honest). In its place: warmer, peach tones, like these smoky eyes on the Mischka runway, which were created by blending peach shadow across the eyelids and lower lash lines for a super-soft, hazy finish.
