Although the clothes are obviously the main focus at the fashion extravaganza that is New York Fashion week, we’ve also noticed a lot of new and exciting make-up trends appearing on the runway.
When it comes to hairstyles and make-up, things were about as diverse as it gets! We saw faces ornamented with multiple piercings, girls with fresh faces wearing no make-up whatsoever, and a variety of messy/knotted hairstyles. Here are the top trends that stood out to us:
This trend from NY Fashion Week certainly isn’t for the faint hearted, although it can be utilised in variety of ways, from faux face piercings to facial tattoos. The Rodarte sisters decorated their models with numerous faux-piercings embellishing each eyebrow. A shocking but exciting make-up trend!
We've been witnessing the fresh face look for a while now, but it’s been more about using make-up to appear more natural rather than using less make-up. But recently designers such as Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs have cut down their usually overflowing makeup kits and instead used as little products as possible, in some cases even none at all!
This is definitely a refreshing trend in the crazy world of NY Fashion Week.
Eye make-up can often go one of two ways on the runway, barely there or extreme and in your face, and this trend is leaning toward latter. This bold eye make-up trend includes thick lines of colour used under or on top of the eye. Although this is a bold statement, the look is surprisingly subtle and wearable and looks great teamed with minimal make-up!
Yet again the popular wet hair look was seen all over the run way at NY Fashion Week, but this time it’s about slicking the top part of the hair back and creating a sexy and almost slightly masculine comb-over/comb-back.
Designers at NY Fashion Week seemed to have swapped the past bun trend for quirky braids. But that isn’t all, these aren’t your average braids, they are knotted braids! Some were delicate and simple, and others were bold and slick. This final trend is great because it’s both versatile and wearable.
