The best beauty looks from NYFW Fall 2018
by : ELLE Canada- Feb 15th, 2018
The artist: Diane Kendal for Marc Jacobs Beauty
The look: This season, it was all about the eyes. Kendal created a glittery, jewel-toned smoky eye using shades from Marc Jacobs Beauty upcoming holiday 2018 collection.
The makeup: Kendal used Magic Marc’er Precision Pen Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Blacquer on the top and bottom waterline to add intensity and finished with a few coats of Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara.
The artist: Kabuki for M.A.C Cosmetics
The look: Jeremy Scott is known for his use of bright, neon colours on the runway and this year was no different. This season’s inspiration was “a feeling of 80s futuristic pop done pretty and fresh,” says Kabuki.
The makeup: Kabuki created five looks for the show. Handmade clear plastic “wings” were outlined in M.A.C Acrylic Paint and placed next to three pixel-like dots along the lid. Kabuki used the Lo-Fi Eyeshadow Palette from Scott's M.A.C collection on the inner corner of the eye.
The artist: Diane Kendal for M.A.C Cosmetics
The look: Kendal updated the classic smoky eye by swapping out brown tones for a navy blue that she called "midnight smoky."
The makeup: M.A.C Modern Twist Kajal Liner in Ocean Liner was drawn along the upper and lower lash line, as well as on the inner corner of the eye. Kendal softened the look by buffing out the edges with a rounded eyeshadow brush. M.A.C Pigment in Naval Blue was blended over the eyelid followed up with M.A.C Pigment in Platinum on the tear duct as a highlight.
The artist: Francelle Daly for NARS Cosmetics
The look: “The Phillip Lim girl this season is a free-spirited nomad—her look features a modern take on the classic kohl liner,” says Daly.
The makeup: NARS Oural Brow Gel was used on the brows and lashes in lieu of mascara. Daly used NARS Minorque Kohliner and NARS Sorrento Kohliner to achieve the look.
The artist: Thomas de Kluyer for Maybelline New York
The look: Inspired by the bright, vibrant colours seen in Jason Wu’s collection, de Kluyer created a look he calls “deconstructed glam." "It's a modern way of approaching a classic cat-eye," he says. "You should be playful and fun use makeup like a fashion accessory."
The makeup: Maybelline’s upcoming Lemonade Palette was used—stay tuned.
The artist: Diane Kendal for M.A.C Cosmetics
The look: “Flushed, healthy cheeks are the focus,” says Kendal, who used two different blush products to achieve this rosy-cheeked look.
The makeup: Use M.A.C Mineralize Blush in Flirting With Danger over the cheeks and follow up with M.A.C Extra Dimension SkinFinish in Beaming blush for fairer skin tones and Glow With It for deeper skin tones to illuminate and sculpt cheeks.
The hair: A certain '90s hair accessory made a comeback, thanks to hairstylist Anthony Turner.
The artist: Thomas de Kluyver for Maybelline New York
The look: The look this season paid homage to the vampy-looking makeup of the '90s. "It's a glam version of grunge," said de Kluyver. “The bold, two-tone effect that makes lips look even fuller.”
The makeup: Maybelline Lip Python
The look: A fresh face and a classic bold, red lip.
The makeup: M.A.C Lip Pencil in Cherry to define the lip line, followed by a coat of M.A.C Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Feels So Grand.
The artist: Diane Kendal using NARS Cosmetics
The look: “This season, the inspiration is all about powerful beauty,” says makeup artist Diane Kendal.
The makeup: Brows were groomed with NARS Brow Perfector and set with NARS Matte Eyeshadow in Blondie, Bengali or Bali depending on hair colour.
Alice and Olivia
The artist: Fatima Thomas for M.A.C Cosmetics
The look: The theme for this season was “dynamic movement,” which Thomas interpreted through her use of bright neon colours.
The makeup: A blend of M.A.C Chromagraphic Pencil in Hi-Def Cyan and Marine Ultra was applied along the waterline followed by an imperfect winged shape around eye using M.A.C Acrylic Paint in Hi-Def Cyan. For the lip, Thomas used a blend of M.A.C LipMix in Fuschia and Orange for the lips and finished with M.A.C Lip Pencil in Ruby Woo to define and perfect.
The look: "Minimal west coast" vibes.
The makeup: M.A.C Trend Forecast Fall '18 eyeshadow in Olive U and Sabled was blended over and under the eye followed by M.A.C Eye Kohl in Minted along the upper and lower lash line.
Oscar De La Renta
The look: "Modern British garden."
The makeup: M.A.C Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid LipColour in Pink Trip was used as an eyeliner along the upper lash line, before adding M.A.C Glitter in Iridescent White for sparkle and dimension.
The artist: Jen Myles for M.A.C Cosmetics
The look: A '90s girl. “She’s tough, sophisticated and beautiful,” says Myles.
The makeup: A blend of M.A.C Cream Colour Base in Mid-Tone Sepia and Root was used on and underneath the eye and intensified along the crease to add dimension.
Zadig & Voltaire
The artist: Thomas de Kluyver for M.A.C Cosmetics
The look: "Teenage fantasy,” says de Kluyver, who created four different looks for the show. The eyes were exaggerated with bright colours.
The artist: Kanako Takase for Maybelline New York
