There's nothing like Fashion Week to get us excited about new trends in style and beauty. And while most of us can't run out and purchase every look from the Narciso Rodriguez catwalk (unfortunately), we can swap our usual beauty routines with something different to easily update our whole look.
How, you ask? Makeup artist Melissa Korn lends her expert advice and product recommendations to our favorite looks from New York, London, Milan, and Paris.
New York: Rachel Zoe’s Doe-Eyed ’60s
Burberry Wet and Dry Silk Eyeshadow in Porcelain ($29, Nordstrom), Kevyn Aucoin Eye Pencil Primatif in Basic Black ($26, Barneys New York), NYX Face Art Eyeliner in Pure White ($8, Target), Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes 5 Star Mascara ($29, Nordstrom).
Apply eyeshadow across the entire eyelid, either dry for subtle brightening, or apply damp for intense color. Another option is to use white eyeliner as a base on lid, then apply shadow on top for mod appeal. Use black liner across the top lash line and flick out at the ends in a cat eye. Use white pencil liberally on your waterline to cancel out any redness. After curling, thoroughly coat your top and bottom lashes with a deep black mascara. For true Twiggy appeal, layer more coats as desired for mega lashes.
London: Holly Fulton's Lavender Manicures
Orly Nail Lacquer in Bon Bon ($8, Ulta Beauty), Nonie Cream Colour Prevails Nail Lacquer in Shy Guy ($8, Walgreens), Tenoverten Nail Polish in Prince ($18, Sephora).
Begin with a base coat to keep your nails healthy and ensure staying power. Allow at least two minutes of drying time between each layer of polish. Seal with topcoat for a smudge-proof mani.
Milan: Pucci’s ’70s-Inspired Hair
Josie Maran Bohemian Waves Argan Hair Mist ($22, Sephora), Living Proof Instant Texture Mist ($26, Sephora), Big Sexy Hair Powder Play Volumizing and Texturizing Powder ($17, Bartell Drugs).
Section hair into four loose braids and spray a heat styling mist (like above) over each section. Run a flatiron over each braid and allow to cool. Take out braids, run fingers through your hair. Add a texture spray or rub powder throughout your mane, then tousle for glam ’70s locks.
Paris: Celine’s Bold Lips and Eyes
Lips: Lime Crime Lipstick in Retrofuturist ($18, Urban Outfitters), Guerlain Garconne Rouge G Lipstick in Garance ($53, Neiman Marcus).
Eyes: Nars Eye Paint in Solomon Island ($25, Nordstrom), Sephora Collection Velvet Eyeshadow in Turquoise Waves ($15, Sephora)
Line your pout in a neutral lip liner that closest resembles your natural lip shade. Use a lip brush to apply lipstick, starting in the center and working your way out. Clean up around the edges of your mouth with concealer, blend well for lips that pop.
As for your eyes, trade that laborious time perfecting precise liner to channel your former finger-painting days for a quick smudge of cool runway color.
