The hair, the makeup, the nails all made statements with every model walk at the Lincoln Center during Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week. As always, some of the looks seen on the runway may be a little extreme for everyday looks, however, the trends that will come from them and the modifications so that you can wear these looks. Here are the Four Top Trends we saw and think you need to know about.
Neon Orange Lipstick and Pastel Lipstick
This season there was an “it” lip color that was present at several of the runway shows, done by several different makeup artists and brands. Which tells us you may want to think about how to rock this look in 2014. Revlon Makeup Artist Gucci Westman, went with a bright, neon orange, matte lip for the Rag & Bone show. MAC’s Charlotte Tilbury gave the models orange lips as well as fluorescent pink and lavender for the Prabal Gurung show. James Boehner from NARS gave the models of Creatures of the Wind a satin neon orange lip.
The Center Part
Although this may take you back to the ’70s, it is not outdated and the middle part is coming back. Whether your hairstyle is sleek or messy, it is all about the center part. Rag & Bone showed the sleek-and-chic center part style, while Alexander Wang went with the messy bed head hair and middle part. Oscar De La Renta showed the hair up but still rocking the center part.
Skin Is In
Who can argue that having good skin, whether it is in your DNA or you work at it, is not an asset. Several of the designers and makeup teams decided to showcase beautiful skin and have that be the main focus. As with anything of course there are always tricks to bring out luminous skin with the right products. Lead Makeup Artist Romy Soleimani created stunning skin for The Zero + Maria Cornejo show. “Fresh and Flawless” was the theme created for the Diane Von Furstenberg show and at Edun’s Show it was ‘flawless skin’ thanks to MAC.
Who says that bright eye shadows are out? The runways were full of bright eye shadows and colorful eyeliners. At Marc by Marc Jacobs, the models sported cobalt eye shadows. The magenta “flaming” cat eyes at the Jeremy Scott show, created by MAC artist Kabuki. White was also a hit color seen in the eyeshadow at the Altuzarra show, in stripes as eyeliner at the Kate Spade show and at the Tibi show. All of the bright white eyes were used, differently but each gave a brightness to those eyes.
