Although spring 2017 seems like light years away, Spring 2017 Fashion Week is in full swing, meaning we're looking out for the latest fashion and beauty trends that are taking over the runway. This past weekend in New York, models, It-girls, and editors found themselves swept away by a spirited round of out-of-the-box beauty ideas guaranteed to shake things up.
Think deeply romantic hair accessories, wonderfully weird eye glosses, and lips bright enough to double as an impromptu traffic light. Not to mention the wave of front row first-timers and celebrity faces that promise to make up the next generation of beauty muses (we're looking at you Lourdes Leon!).
From platinum blonde hair at Alexander Wang to electric red lips at Jason Wu, we're giving you 5 game-changing beauty moments you may have missed from New York Fashion Week over the weekend.
5 BEAUTY TRENDS FROM NEW YORK FASHION WEEK
The glossy lids at Dion Lee, tinted in shades of sheer fuchsia and tangerine by makeup artist Hannah Murray, were a fresh and wearable idea for eyes, rivaled only by Altuzarra's delicate orange smudge and Gypsy Sport's Technicolour gleam.
Reinvent your smoky eye this season by giving it a glossy texture. To do this, apply your eye shadow to your lids as usual, then coat a layer of clear lip gloss on top, patting the product on with your finger tip.
BLEACH BLONDE HAIR
You may have noticed that Kylie Jenner is the latest A-lister to take the platinum plunge, transforming her hair from jet black to bleach blonde what seems like overnight. She may have been risky, but she was right in calling one of the latest beauty trends: platinum blonde hair.
Hairstylist Guido Palau sparked a full-blown craze for '70s surf blonde at Alexander Wang with 18 radical colour transformations – including model Kate Moore's shift from redhead to towhead – that echoed Kylie Jenner's own standout platinum moment in the fashion house's front row.
DIY HAIR ACCESSORIES
Wide and dyed '90s-inspired bandannas at Baja East. Ethereal woven ballerina buns that match this season's ballerina footwear trend at Ryan Roche. Velvet and Plexiglass barettes at Adam Selman. The hair accessory has endless range this season – and whether you're feeling classic or quirky, there's a wealth of new options worth considering! Better yet, this season's accessories could be matched with a little a little DIY arts and crafts!
ELECTRIC RED LIPS
A high-wattage mouth, done up in electric red, was the street style beauty statement to beat – gaining momentum after on-runway sightings at Jason Wu and Creatures of the Wind. The best way to wear this trend? Opt for minimal eye makeup that will allow your electric red pout to take centre stage.
The wet hair look has been making major waves on the red carpet as of late. With A-listers like Kim Kardashian and Ashley Graham hopping on board, this is one look that seems appealing outside of the shower for once.
At New York Fashion Week this weekend, wet went two ways: Swept back into ladylike waves at Altuzarra and liberally dunked in gel at Hood By Air. So, if you've been waiting for the chic pre-emptive solution to getting caught in a spring rainstorm without an umbrella, this is it!
