Beauty Trends of NYFW AW15

It was all about throwbacks this season, with each designer taking inspiration from the best eras any beauty addict could ask for.

Reem Acra

The 70’s trend wasn’t limited to Spring/Summer this year; “24 Karat Gold” was the inspiration for the Reem Acra collection. Mark Corrasquilllo made each model into a modern Stevie Nicks with the help of some of Kevyn Aucoin’s makeup masters, giving the models gold inner corners paired with dewy skin.

Rachel Zoe

Charlotte Tilbury worked her magic at Rachel Zoe, using MAC. “Twiggy’s Daughter” was the inspiration forthe look, with the models bypassing the 70’s for the 60’s. Winged liner was accompanied by soft pink lids, cheeks and lips (plus a smattering of faux freckles), resulting in a wearable update of the iconic look.

Donna Karan

It was all about the flushed complexion at Donna Karan, with Charlotte Tilbury recreating Lauren Bacall’s natural beauty and dusty rose cheeks with the help of MAC. The 20’s inspired look was given a refresher with light strokes of muted browns and pale creams – easy, subtle and flattering for all skin tones.

Tommy Hilfiger

Would it really be fashion week if there wasn’t at least one fresh-faced look on the runway? The girls at Tommy Hilfiger channelled all-American beauty so well it felt like an episode of the O.C! Using MAC, Pat McGrath gave lids a subtle wash of light brown accompanied by strong brows, to create the effortlessly beautiful look we’re all eager to possess.
