15 Beauty Highlights from NYFW
NYFW has come and gone, but we’re still sighing wistfully over all of the gorgeous looks that walked before us. Today we’re focusing on the details: the subtle lips, the flashy eyes, the dreamy hair, the perfectly manicured hands.
For the most part, we saw a blend of sharp modernity — think swatches of bright colors on lids and funky manis — and flawless, natural beauty. There were many, many nude lips. Brows were combed, but not filled in. And hair was wild and free. Here are some of our favorite looks from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2015. Enjoy.
If you look close enough, you’ll see a hint of grayish blue on the interior corner of each eye. And nude nails — surprise surprise.
This color combination is a striking one, and we love that the nails fall right in line. Note that the lips are so pale they blend into the skin.
Cushnie et Ochs
Sleeked back hair with lots of visible bobby pins. We’re calling it relaxed glamour.
The nails are killer here — just subtle enough. The eyes are also pretty, and we’re a fan of the unlined, bushy-browed look.
Diane von Furstenberg
More nude nails and lips, this time paired with a “slept in” smokey eye.
We’re not quite sure how this hair was created, but we’re digging the unkempt vibe.
These nails are actually press-ons from KISS Broadway nails.
It was a blue dream at Karen Walker. Super short, metallic blue nails and a soft swipe of blue on lids = perfection.
Super smudgy eyes and pin-straight hair made for a lot of drama at Monique Lhuillier.
Naeem Khan had one of the more “look at me” makeup looks with shadow that hit the brow bone and a perfectly drawn on, crimson-red lip. Note the gold nails, which were all over NYFW.
Here’s another bold look, this one from Nanette Lepore. There’s something quite striking about the spidery eyelashes and pop of lip color.
Black and red chevron nails were seen at Rebecca Minkoff.
This is perhaps one of the most wearable looks we saw at fashion week. A delicately lined eye, side swept hair, and an otherwise nude — but glowing — face.
Nude lips? Check. Defined eyes? Check. Natural, but polished brows? Check.
This was one of our favorite manicures: a matte black nail with a haphazard splotch of glossy purple.
