Fashion month is about so much more than clothes – it’s also when makeup artists and hairstylists come out to play, showing off their fantastical creations. Sometimes, their work is a bit out-there, but if you look closer, it can be reworked for us non-models, too. While we saw wild embellishments and eye-popping colours, it’s not all dramatic hues and graphic shapes, though – plenty of designers stuck to the classics, like a winged liner and a vampy lip, proving that a true classic never goes out of style.
TREND 1: The vamp
Seen at: Anna Sui, Rodarte
Bring out your inner Morticia Adams with this 90s inspired goth look. Dark maroon lips look almost black next to flawless skin, with eyes just sporting a hint of mascara.
TREND 2: Golden eyes
Seen at: Tom Ford, Gabriela Hearst
Keep your lips matte and neutral and focus on your eyes with lush golden tones swept over the entire lid, almost up to the brow, as seen at Tom Ford and Gabriela Hearst.
TREND 3: Sequins and embellishment
Seen at: Giambattista Valli, Erdem, Simone Rocha
OK, so you’re not going to break out this look for coffee with the girls, but for a night out, it’s a ton of fun. Decorate your brow bones and eyelids with crystal and sequins, using eyelash glue.
TREND 4: Pops of colour
Seen at: Self-Portrait, Off-White
If you’re tired of plain old black eyeliner, go wild with colour – the brighter, the better. Take primary colours to your lids with solid streaks of colour, or just lashings of coloured mascara if that’s too much for you.
TREND 5: Graphic winged eyeliner
Seen at: Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu
The classic cat-eye got a major revival at fashion month. Make yours dark and dramatic like at Valentino, Miu Miu and Moschino, or add color like at Marc Jacobs.
You can also use stark white to make a fresh statement – check out our video for a quick and easy tutorial.
