One of the things we most look forward to at NWFW is seeing beauty looks that we can actually wear. It's all well and good to gawk at gem encrusted lips in Paris or faux-hawk punk looks in London but when it comes to planning our look for the spring we always look to New York. Here are a few of our favorite looks from the week.
If you're tired of the cat eye, this parallel flick might be for you. If you're trying it at home, use a tiny liner brush with a gel for optimal precision.
One of our favorite trends of the season so far is this subtle wash of one color across the cheeks and lips. Easily recreated with one product, it's a great look for product-phobes and space savers.
Statement making makeup doesn't have to be dramatic. We love this tiny pop of pink the outer corners of the eyes. It's a great way to integrate color without a big commitment.
Stash your reds away this spring and pick up what's set to be the next big color. This bright pinky plum custom blended by Gucci Westman is the perfect mix between bright and vampy and perfect for day or night.
We're always looking for ways to mix up a daytime look and we love this contrasting shadow under the lower lash line that artist Sarah Lucero blended out using a rich burgundy smudge stick.
Undone is officially the new done and this messy braid by Antonio Corral Calero is the queen of the undone looks. It looks like it would be a nightmare to brush out but it's worth it for this striking look.
Rag and Bone
This season's key lip colors so far are baby pink and plum but there's one more getting us very excited and it's orange. Orange lips have been floating on the edge of popular for a few seasons but now is the time for it to take center stage. Whether as a stain or a neon statement like this, we're sure to see more come spring.
Finding a hairstyle that looks thoroughly modern is difficult but this subtle messy wave by Odile Gilbert might just be it. It's polished but not high-maintenance - perfect for everyday.
Another trend that was everywhere this season was a pop of matte shadow on the lid. We saw it in white, pink, neutral and orange but this lime stood out as a must try for spring.
This is by far the least wearable look in our list but we'd be remiss if we didn't include Charlotte Tilbury's daring bubble gum matte lips.
