Prepare to pay extra attention to your inner eyes next winter, because designers like Edun and Phillip Lim sent models down the runway with interior eyeshadow accents. Perfect for girls with wide-set eyes, a little inner sparkle makes your peepers pop. But beware if your eyes are already close together: adding shadow to your inner corners will make it more noticeable. MAC makeup artist Yadim added a touch of Pearl Cream Color Base to highlight this model's inner corners at Edun.
It was a blast from the past on the runways of Jenny Packham, Chris Benz, and Lela Rose, who favored retro hairstyles this week. If you don't want to go full-on flapper, try experimenting with a deep side part and finger waves next season.
Red lips are here to stay, at least until next spring. Rosy pouts graced the runways of Ruffian, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors,and Thakoon. An expert tip on making your lip look last is to line your smackers with lipliner or with a fine lip brush before applying actual color. It'll define your mouth and keep color from bleeding.
Next season, it's okay to be a tease. Designers like Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, and Chadwick Bell sent models down the runway with French New Wave hairstyles. A little reverse combing will get you the big hair that was so popular this Fahsion Week.
Rouge colors aren't just for cheeks and lips next season. We saw plenty of rosy lids on models at Donna Karan and Phillip Lim. When it comes to brassy eyeshadows less is more, so apply with caution. You can always add another layer of pigment, but taking one off is a different story.
Flawlessly groomed brows were everywhere at Fashion Week, but several shows emphasized bold shapes as well. Vera Wang opted for long, dark eyebrows, while Alexander Wang squared off the inner corners of models' brows, creating blunt and geometric arches. Get the perfect set of brows at home with helpful stencils and a shaping kit, like those from Anastasia's collection.
Braids were hot last season, and in the coming months we'll be seeing some spectacular hairstyles involving the schoolgirl staple. Redken hairstylists, who created these braided buns for Marc Jacobs, created a clean center part before "pulling hair into low side ponytails (under the ear) and securing with an elastic." Then, stylists "braided each pigtail and wrapped it around into a knot, securing with pins."
Winter blues takes on a whole new meaning with the rise of navy shadows at Fashion Week. Prabal Gurung opted for electric hues, but Jason Wu chose a more subtle look and patted models' lids with sapphire shimmer. Try an azure smokey eye for a night out on the town, or sweep a deep denim shade across lids for a punch of style on any jeans-and-tee-shirt day.
Cat got your tongue? Exaggerated liner was everywhere during Fashion Week, from Zac Posen's delicate cat eye (which MAC created by dragging out liner with a small angled brush) to Altuzzara's stenciled wing outline. Naeem Khan opted for an old Hollywood look by keeping black liner thick above the lid and thinning out as it neared the corners, and Tanya Taylor kept things simple and sexy with a thin brush of black close to the lash line. With so many cat eye options, how will you choose?
Winter skin stayed simple this week with plush, matte finishes and flawless complexions. For a soft, airbrushed look invest in a finishing powder like Make Up For Ever's Microfinish HD to dust over freshly applied concealer. Save the shimmer and shine for spring.
There is no easier style update to make than switching your part. Instead of classic ponytails, next season will see polished updos set on side parts. Diane Von Furstenberg sent models down the runway with these well-styled coifs, while Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui, Dennis Basso, and Carmen Marc Valvo all followed suit.
The classic smokey eye got a cold weather update at Suno, Creatures of the Wind, Alexandre Herchcovitch, and Cushnie et Ochs. Start with three gradual shades of brown, and layer the lightest color from your eyelid to your brow bone. Then, sweep the middle color over your entire lid, and add a touch of the darkest shade to your crease. MAC makeup artist Carole Colombani used the brand's Teddy Eye Kohl to smudge through models' lash lines, as seen here at Suno.
