With Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week drawing to a close today, sites and blogs are agog with the latest fashion trends. But tailoring and prints aren’t our only focus…take a cue from the tons of for-real-people beauty I loved at Lincoln Center. I’ve found a few easy-to-copy catwalk trends that’ll make you want to strut your stuff (even if it’s only down the street).
Neutrals are running rampant this season and runway beauty is no different as evidenced by DKNY. What better way to bring focus to the rest of your flawless face than by downplaying your lips? Neutral doesn’t have to mean boring! Smashbox’s Be Legendary Lipstick in Nylon Nude ($19 on drugstore.com) moisturizes and has a lustrous finish that adds just a teensy tint of color.
Luscious lashes are a look every lady loves. Many fashion week models, especially those sporting Dennis Basso, went a long way to emphasize their eyes. You, too, can enjoy luxurious lashes with CoverGirl NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara (SALE: $6.79 on drugstore.com). I guarantee this voluminous mascara will mean all, er, eyes on you!
Tamed tresses were a hot trend on the runway and the Diane von Furstenberg models don’t have a stray hair in sight. A simple bun with a deep side part screams sophistication so why not snag the look yourself? Keep your locks in place with Got 2b’s Spiked Up Max Control Styling Gel ($4.99 on Ulta.com) so fly-aways don’t strand a chance.
Simple eye makeup really fabs an outfit up and MBFW beauties have taken this tidbit to heart! This look was relatively widespread across several labels, but was especially edgy at Imitation of Christ. Nab this style for yourself with L’Oréal Paris’ Extra Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner ($6.79 on Drugstore.com) for long-lasting, easy-to-apply eyeliner power!
A fresh-faced style is perfect for days when you don’t want to look “made up.” The Vera Wang models embraced this lovely look that emphasized effortless elegance. While blemish-free skin is the way to go, if your ‘dermis isn’t model status at the moment, Neutrogena’s Skin Clearing Blemish Concealer (NOW $8.99 ) blasts blemishes while concealing imperfections. You’ll look gorgeous, naturally.
If subtlety isn’t really your strong suit, consider something a bit bolder. The models rocking Narciso Rodriguez definitely were edginess exemplified with their brilliant eyeshadow. For a nice mix of beautiful, highly pigmented colors, Maybelline’s Eye Studio Color Plus Silk Eyeshadow ($9.99 on Ulta.com) is truly a sight for sore eyes!
