NYFW Beauty Trends You Can Use

NYFW is well underway, complete with those beauty “trends” that just won’t die (I’m looking at you, red eye shadow). Blink and you might miss the inspiration for the everyday girl. Any one of these tricks will make you feel instantly prettier right now. I’ll take that!

The Show: Alexander Wang
Beauty Notes: Ignore the forehead jewelry and note the flawless, luminous skin—perfect but not unattainable with the right makeup. Artist Diane Kendal used Nars Sheer Glow Foundation but you could also do like moi and mix a little illuminator such as MAC Strobe Cream in with your favorite foundation.

The Show: Erin Fetherston
Beauty Notes: Sometimes nail polish is the only accessory you need. Here, it’s Butter London Lillibet’s Jubilee, a lavender-hued silver metallic. Love how the sweetly rounded nail shape of her nails juxtaposes the edgy, rock-and-roll shade for softer look.

The Show: Marissa Webb
Beauty Notes: Bobbi Brown gave models lightly bronzed cheeks, subtle smoky eyes and rosy lips with products from her forthcoming spring collection, while hairstylist Michael Angelo created low, back-combed pony tails. The perfect recipe for fresh-faced, all-American beauty.
