The spring 2017 show are coming to a close, and while the see-now-buy-now trend is giving you instant access to your runway wishlist, there’s an even faster fix to next season’s biggest trends. Here are five gorgeous beauty looks we spotted on models — all so of-the-moment you’ll want to break them out this weekend.
Middle School coiffs
Your go-to look for band recital got casual chic updates at Brock Collection and Marissa Webb. Twist and tie back hair away from the face for a look that’s effortless but polished. At Marissa Webb, TRESemme stylist Jeanie Syfu aimed for “achievable drama,” using the haircare brand’s Extra Firm Control Mousse to prep damp hair before blowdrying with a paddle brush. She then parted the hair down the middle, twisting back the top sections starting at the ears, before securing the ponytail at the nap of the neck.
The beach wave is nothing new, but shaggier, shorter, jaunty layers give the look new life. Models at Alexander Wang had their locks chopped, bleached blonde and given messy beach waves by Redken creative director Guido Palau. Their surfer-inspired cuts were paired with minimalist, sun-kissed glows from Nars.
Ditch your liner
Lower lashlines got a break this season, with the likes of Band of Outsiders, Jason Wu and Tommy Hilfiger going for an undefined eye. Instead the basically bare looks put an emphasis on extremely healthy, glowing, plump skin. Maybelline's Grace Lee, who led artists at Band of Outsiders, says she kept her models fresh-faced and dewy by applying the brand's Dream Cushion Foundation (out in January) with a damp sponge and using color corrector to tone out any imperfections.
Negative space nails make the traditional French manicure cool again. Tanya Taylor, Creatures of Comfort and Rebecca Minkoff all featured manis with bare bases and a slender swipe of color either at the tip or the base line. What makes the look pop is cheeky color choices and placement — there’s nothing 'ladies who lunch' about this extremely cool, low-maintenance update.
We can finally trade near impossible to wear anti-statement nudes for complex, layered lip colors that make a serious impact. DKNY’s sparkling smiles came courtesy of Pat McGrath’s glitter-packed #LUST004 lip kits, while two-toned lips (shaded in with two hues of hot pink MAC lip pencils) provided a come-hither effect at Cusnie et Ochs. Creatures of the Wind gave their matte lips a velvety finish, with lead makeup artist Mark Carrasquillo dipping a fluffy brush in pigment powder to dust over Nars’ red lip. So plush.
