Say it with your eyes
Bold hues and graphic design once again dominated Fall 2017 runways. Prabal Gurung's show geometric shapes in pops of bright blue and neon green framed models’ bare lid eyes. Oscar de la Renta contrasted society-ready gowns with punky statement eyes. Washes of turquoise or amber covered models' lids, some of which were further layered with sharp hot pink liner.
Make it matte-r
Put down the strobing set and highlighting cream, fashion is leaning toward a clean, shine-free finish for fall. Models at Brock Collection, Ryan Roche, Victoria Beckham and Michael Kors all looked as flawless, healthy and buffed-dry as the teen star of a Neutrogena ad. Make a note: Diffusing powers are about to become your new best friend.
Models at the Jonathan Simkhai show had a single tiny pearl or Swarovski crystal placed in the inner corner of their eyes. At Tadashi Shoji models channeled Twiggy with sparkling loose glitter above heavily mascaraed lower lashes. And Christian Siriano MAC artist Polly Osmond gave models trails of glittering copper tears, her inspiration: post-apocalyptic glam.
Thakoon and Public School both incorporated gradient berry-stained pouts, a popular Korean trend that seems to be finally creeping into the States. For Public School, Maybelline New York’s Grace Lee has an alternate explanation for the whisper of burgundy left behind, “a girl had on a deep red, but has been out all day and hasn't touched it up." She created the look by smudging a deep red across balm-prepped lips with her finger, before adding a touch wine lipstick (Maybelline’s Midnight Merlot) to the center. Kiss, and repeat.
How low can you go
Lazy girls get excited: the low pony is making a strong, chic comeback. Carolina Herrera, Jason Wu and Altuzarra are just some of the shows that models pulled their hair back into low-hanging, sleek ponytails. Call it, our easiest and most favorite hair hack of them all!
