Fashion month has something for everyone, whether you’re into beauty, fashion trends, street style or all of the above. Those who tune in to the shows to see what makeup artists dream up are going to be excited about the inspiration from Fall 2019. The fashion shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris featured stunning makeup looks.
The makeup teams continued to expand the definition of winged liner with flicks of all shapes, thicknesses and colors. Next, there were eye makeup looks that featured two striking details. Just one would have commanded ample attention, but the combination took it to the next level. We’ve dubbed it “one-two punch makeup.”
We had to look closely to notice it, but barely-visible eyeliner was also a makeup trend. Something that we didn’t have to look quite so hard to notice were the statement lashes. They often had a 60s vibe that would make Twiggy proud.
A painterly makeup application was seen at various shows. The looks ranged from splodges and dabs of eyeshadow to more editorial looks with blotches and color drips. In keeping with the extra mood, there was a generous sprinkling of glitter and diamantés at fashion month, proving sparkle isn’t going anywhere.
Lips often took a back seat to eyes. When kissers were the statement (or co-statement), the timeless beauty of red lipstick was celebrated. Rather than a true red, a deeper, more autumnal crimson shade held particular sway. The finish of lip colors was also key. A stained look was a favorite to create a just-bitten vibe.
