3 NYFW Makeup Trends to Try

Today is the first day of New York Fashion week which for all fashion enthusiasts means you’re either getting dressed up, watching other people get dressed up or both. There are lots of fun trends on the horizon with a heavy emphasis on the glamor, but how does this transcend into makeup looks? Allow me to guide you through 3 of the most popular emerging makeup trends this season.

  1. Soft Rosy Lips

This season has given rise to a more natural take on makeup. We’re seeing more natural faces of make-up to give off a natural beauty look, and part of this is about removing the crisp painted-on look we normally see with lipstick. In order to achieve this more organic look, start by picking a deep red that will compliment your skin, and then use your finger or a makeup brush to blur the edges. This will create a softer edge and a more lived-in look. It’s like the lipstick equivalent of a shag haircut: it’s beautiful and low-maintenance. 

  1. Graphic Eye-Liner

Graphic eyeliner looks have been steadily on the rise this year, but they seem to be making their mark this season especially. This is the perfect trend for artists or anyone looking to get creative because there are literally no rules. As long as it’s bold and you feel confident with it, then it’s working. You could try experimenting with just the line or just the color, or if you’re really feeling bold, you could do both. Black is sure to look good with anything, as it never goes out of style, but fun pops of color are really in right now, so if you’re looking to make the most of this moment, then pick a hue from the rainbow. 

  1. Blue and Green Eyeshadows and Liners

These two colors have a strong grip on stylists right now. This is another one of those bold make-up looks that may take some confidence to wear, but it doesn’t necessarily need to be. If you’re looking to grab attention, then go for a neon green or blue; you could even make the most of two trends by turning them into a more artistic eyeliner look. But if you’re just looking to feel stylish without doing all the tricks, then try a more natural green that compliments your skin, and do a light dusting of the eyeshadow towards the middle of your eyelid for a more lowkey take on the trend.

    Shea butter is a type of fat derived from the nuts of the shea tree. It has an off-white or ivory color and is solid at warm temperatures. Shea trees are native to West Africa, and the majority of shea butter still comes from there.

    Where Does Our Makeup Come From: the Origins of Our Favorite Products

    Although men and women have been wearing makeup for centuries, the beauty industry today is a far cry from where it began. All across the world, people in ancient Egypt, Rome, and China used coal, beeswax, henna, almonds, lead, berries and copper in various ways as makeup. Today, however, makeup lovers have never been farther away from the origins of the products they love.
    The makeup sold today is generally a mixture of water, oil, and wax. Along with certain chemicals which act as preservatives, emulsifiers, or are just added in for ease of application. The third ingredient necessary for the colorful shimmery eyeshadows, blushes, lipsticks, and lipglosses are minerals.

    Futurism: The Beauty Trend That’s Changing How We Understand Beauty

    Fashion month has revealed many budding trends and themes in the world of all things fashion and beauty, but one that has been particularly prominent is futurism. Futurism is a theme that has emerged on runways and in the streets, but what exactly is it? Well, if you’re struggling to understand the aesthetic that encapsulates the term, then think of old sci-fi movies; the way directors would have styled characters from the future, other dimensions, or alien planets, is in essence, futurism. It is a way of styling clothes or doing hair and makeup to look well- futuristic. That being said, it may seem kind of odd that this trend is emerging right? I mean, most people don’t immediately think of aliens from Star Wars when they think of the word “beauty.” But designers and make-up artists have been turning heads with some of their latest looks.
