Everybody generally cares about the fashion at Fashion Week but beauty is just as relevant. It’s where trends are made and modelled – whether it be fashion or beauty. But where things differ is that the fashion world is obsessed with street style, while the beauty world seems to focus on the catwalk. I believe the tables should be turned because it’s the real people, out on the streets, who are bringing beauty looks to life. This is why I flew to New York Fashion Week to bring you this special series of Street Style Beauty.
I discovered some gorgeous looks and some key trends from the most fashionable people. In the first post of this 3-part series I showed you hair street style, and now I’m going to show you the makeup I saw at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, New York.
- Focus on the lips – Bright, bold or dark lipsticks were a main attraction.
- Girly glam – Feminine shades for full-faced makeup kept the overall look put-together but not over-the-top in the daylight.
- Glowy skin – Au naturale is always on trend but the use of illuminators and bare lips made their look glowing gorgeous instead of “can’t-be-bothered”.
- Black & Red – Classic black winged liner and red lipstick was the fail safe for busy fashion girls.
