Tips and Tricks From the Beauty Pros at Fall 2017 NYFW

FEB. 21, 2017:

New York Fashion Week wrapped just a few weeks ago, but we’re still thinking about the amazing beauty looks that walked down the runway in the Big Apple. Always experimental and a little bit edgy, NYFW makeup artists and hairstylists introduced new techniques we cannot wait to steal. Here are the tips and tricks on our list.

Yes, you can wear a ponytail
At Oscar de la Renta, who showed a decidedly dressy look this season, hairstylist Orlando Pita juxtaposed the sophisticated collection with the epitome of youthful hair—the classic ponytail. “It’s really Oscar for a younger girl,” Pita said. The look was fresh, clean and very East Coast prep.

Use lip gloss for a sexy eye dew
Did you know your clear lip gloss is the simplest way to create a sexy morning-after look for your eye makeup? Take it from makeup artist Gucci Westman, who smudged a touch of gloss over smoky eyes at Monse. Very editorial, very chic.

Don’t be afraid to finger paint
Chances are, your favorite lip shade is a mix of several. Turns out, that’s how the experts do it, too. At Jason Wu, makeup artist Yadim used a plethora of orange, red and cherry shades to create the perfect hue, which was then finished with a classic red liner.

Alternate black and brown liners for a natural look
Don’t stop at mixing lipsticks—mixing liners is also a must, according to Cushnie Et Ochs makeup artist Gato. He used black eyeliner to fill in between the lashes, then switched to brown to create a soft shadow around the eye, finishing with a rose color shadow for a romantic, hooded look.

When in doubt, go with wet hair
The wet hair look can either be super chic, or resemble a drowned rat. Thankfully at Thakoon, Odile Gilbert achieved the former. She used a mix of mousse and crèmes to create a sleek wet look, which paired super well will Thakoon’s range of rain-ready trench coats.

Mix eyeshadow with cream for a glossy look
For perfectly undone, French-girl beauty, makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes used a mix of black eyeshadow and crème for a low-key cat eye look at Libertine. Don’t forget to finish with powder to make sure your shadow stays put.
