From the only color you need in your eyeshadow palette to next season’s hottest hairstyle, these are the five biggest beauty trends straight from the New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2018 runways.
Enter the era of the new wing. According to the catwalks, the classic cat-eye is getting a whole new look next season. It’s no longer about that perfectly sharp flick on your top lashline – instead, eyeliner is taking on a whole new feel. From the soft, rounded shape at Tom Ford and floating squared flick at Jason Wu to the flip-reversed wing at Jill Stuart and double-lined look at Monse, it’s clear that now’s the time to get creative with your cat-eye.
Seeing as it was one of SS17’s biggest beauty trends and is still a firm favorite amongst celebrities, it’s hardly surprising that red is back with a big, beautiful bang for another season. Whether you go for a subtle crimson shade as seen at Badgley Mischka, a pinky-red wash like the look at Brock Collection, or a bold burst of brick red like that at Cynthia Rowley, now is the time to (literally) see red. Worried it will leave you looking like an extra from Twilight? Then click here to discover why red works – and actually looks good – on everyone.
Glowing, dewy skin is still very much in – but for next season, the strobing trend has been turned up a (very big) notch. Backstage, highlighters were used to give a high-shine sheen to skin, from the more natural glows seen at Victoria Beckham and Olivia Palermo x Banana Republic to the mega-watt looks at Fenty Puma and Francesca Liberatore. So, if you haven’t already gotten your hands on a highlighter, do it now.
Lazy girls, rejoice, because next season’s hottest hair look is the humble topknot. It’s as simple as twisting your hair up and securing it high on your head à la A Détacher and Cushnie et Ochs. You could also go for a pigtail pairing, as seen at Katie Gallagher. Whichever way you want to rock it, it’s time to twist it out.
Fans of arts and crafts will love this trend, as it’s all about embellishing your beauty look with anything and everything that takes your fancy. We saw crystals placed perfectly under eyes to bring an otherwise barefaced look to life at Jeremy Scott, eyes were lined with metallic stickers at The Blonds, and silver stars were used to create an other-worldly feel at La Petite Robe by Chiara Boni. If you were ever looking for an excuse to dig out your childhood sticker book, this is it.
