The best beauty looks at NYFW Fall 2017
by : Victoria DiPlacido- Feb 14th, 2017
Show: La Perla
The Look: Gorgeous, sexy and flirty.
Products: Maybelline New York makeup artist Erin Parsons used a burgundy shade inspired by the flowers in the runway set on either lips or eyes.
Show: Oscar de la Renta
Show: Carolina Herrera
Show: Jason Wu
The Look: Modern, individual women.
Products: Makeup artist Yadim created a two-toned glossy lip with Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid in Orange Obsession applied to the upper lip and Red Punch on the bottom.
Show: Jill Stuart
The Look: Urban warrior.
Products: M.A.C Cosmetics Timecheck Lotion was applied to create a matte base, then Prep + Prime Essential Oils stick was used on the lips and the lids to create strategic shine.
Show: Jenny Packham
The Look: Soft and natural.
Products: "We started off with a burnt red lip colour pressed into lips, then finished with a blackberry colour right in the centre," says Bobbi Brown Cosmetics makeup artist Cassandra Garcia. "It's a gradation of brighter red to deeper wine in the middle to add dimension to the lips."
Show: 3.1 Phillip Lim
The Look: The natural glow and radiance of all women.
Products: NARS Audacious Mascara, NARS Copacabana Multiple.
Show: Prabal Gurung
The Look: Powerful, independent women.
Products: Diane Kendal did floating, negative space liner in striking colours inspired by the collection.
Show: Proenza Schouler
Show: Jeremy Scott
The Look: M.A.C Cosmetics makeup artist Kabuki created a look that was "Part flower child, party spooky (but cute) doll."
Products: No. 7 lashes cut into pieces, with the longest piece placed in the centre of the eye.
The Look: Cassandra Garcia, makeup artist for Bobbi Brown Cosmetics created a soft look with defined eyebrows.
Products: Longwear Eye Base evened out any pink and yellow tones on eyelids before the crease was defined with Wheat Eye Shadow (neutralizing lids first makes the shadow brighter). Shadow was also drawn along the lower lash line. "As long as we concealed and brightened already, it's ok to do that," says Garcia.
Show: Tory Burch
The Look: Luminous, glowing complexions and white geometric eyeliner.
Products: To ensure that models’ skin was prepped before makeup application started, artists used Skyn Iceland’s Glacial Cleansing Cloths. Activated when rubbed together, the cloths create a sudsy foam which dries completely down- no rinsing required.
Show: Tanya Taylor
Show: Public School
The Look: Young and fresh.
Products: Maybelline New York makeup artist Grace Lee applied a red hue from Lip Studio Lip Palette onto the lips with her fingers, then dabbed Color Sensational Loaded Bolds in Midnight Merlot in the centre.
Show: Zadig & Voltaire
The Look: "Feminine strength and movement."
Products: M.A.C Cosmetics Paint Stick in Marine Ultra blended on the corner of the eye.
Show: Alexander Wang
The Look: Diane Kendal created a look inspired by "a woman who walks into a room and is instantly noticed."
Products: Some models, about 5 or 6, had their brows bleached and wore no makeup. Others had NARS Larger Than Life Eyeliner in Via Veneto applied to the top and bottom waterline, that was then diffused out with a clean brush. "They wanted a worn-in feel to the makeup," Kendal told us backstage, like the look of someone who has been up all night partying and has not yet been to bed.
Show: Creatures of the Wind
The Look: Masculine beauty.
Products: The brow was extended and made slightly more round. "The shape is a modern take on Marlene Dietrich's signature look," says makeup artist Mark Carrasquillo. Eye pencil leaves a slight shine, so NARS Bali and Coconut Grove Eyeshadows were used instead for a matte look. "I want to bring the penciled-on eyebrow to 2017," says Carrasquillo. On the lips, balm was applied then removed before models hit the runway.
Show: Victoria Beckham
The Look: "Sophisticated, smart, intellectual but cool," makeup artist Pat McGrath told us backstage. "[It's] a bit rebellious, like all of us."
Products: "We've created a beautiful texture on the skin using a little moisturizer, and highlighter on the cheekbones and bridge of nose. [We added] a tiny, tiny touch of pink lipstick for a little enhancement. A cool grey shadow [soon to be released from Victoria Beckham's Estee Lauder line] put on with the fingertips to turn into a little bit of an eyeliner. The shape is pulled out, but it's a not cat eye, it's a little bit cooler. It's very fresh."
