NYFW : The easily attainable beauty Trends for AW16

A few shows that I have attended during NYFW , I noticed there was a recurring trend on the runways.  Dramatic Eyes : Bold , Structured, Wash of Color.  Nude Understated Lips. Ponytails : Sleek , Fun, Braids -  all styles were welcomed.  Its always fun to see the beauty trends chosen to compliment the pieces by each designer, and its even more fun to incorporate these looks into our lives.

Below you will find a few of my favorite looks from the shows.

A lot of the shows had some sort of exaggerated play on the winged liner with multidimensional color or the infusion of a metallic pigment on the lids.

CHIARA BONI ( La Petite Robe ) - Lead Makeup Artist Janell Geason for Aveda .  

I loved this eye look it was futuristic with the use of reds on the eyes but classic at the same time with the traditional eye shape.  The lip was nude which complimented all of the garments very well.  The designer Chiara Boni envisions "a regal woman floating in a haze of organza, gowns and floor-length skirts with a train. Between present and future, the collection is a revelation of elegance."  Attending this show , these beautiful pieces of wearable art replicated exactly that.

Another multidimensional eye , this time with the use of metals ( silver) , again paired with a barely there lip and clean skin ( perhaps its time to take a break from our bold colored Matte Liquid Lips? ) . This look is edgy yet very wearable for the everyday woman and it was the perfect beauty look for this shows location which was the LES.  The eyes were a nice focal point after the structured abstract designs of course.

The look at Serbian Designer Bata Spasojevic's show was a bold red  or dark black eye paired with a red lip .  This look was bold which was to be expected since this collection was titled "Hard Angel" which featured punk rock, rock 'n' roll and futurism.  This show even featured Male Models who wore edgy face paint which complimented the asymmetry and sculpted design of the clothes.

This look was a dark bold eye which looked like a scalloped wing paired with a matte muted neutral lip.  It was a major contrast to the ultra feminine looks. It was the most feminine collection out of the three Serbian Collections showing at the Art Hearts Fashion shows.

The look at this show was a little bit more subdued compared to my previous mentions. This eye look was a wash of color which was a pretty shade of purple which was extended past the lash lines and covered the whole lid , paired with a pale nude lip ( which seems to be the theme) It was dramatic in comparison to the luxury ready to wear pieces .

There was a plethora of styles on the runway for NYFW.  All of the ponytails had a sleek foundation whether it was part in the middle or straight to the back.  There was some fun adornments , braids, or stick straight looks.  The nice part was there was a variation in lengths , so it is more attainable to recreate.  You can easily recreate these looks at home with a RZPL Pony which comes in many shades.  


Classic sleek ponytail in all lengths.

Fun Fishtail braids .

Super Sleek ponytails which were wrapped beyond normal limits releasing a big voluminous bouquet of curls.  It reminded me of a floral bouquet , it was so fun and innovative.  Check out this hair in action here .
