Makeup, just like fashion, is an art -- you can create anything and everything by just using a few colours! And during New York Fashion Week, these works of art came out and beautifully complemented all the things the models were wearing.

But because runway beauty looks are all about creativity, often these don’t work in real life – from gold eyebrows to hot pink lids and everything else in between. If you wanted to take these runway looks to the streets, though, don’t despair! Just keep scrolling below for the list of beauty looks and trends from the runway that you can easily recreate at home!


Sophisticated grunge - 3.1 Phillip Lim

While grungey looks are all about smokey and messy eyeliner, this new take seen in 3.1 Phillip Lim is nothing short of stunning and classy! Instead of smudging out the entire line, only mess up the inner corners to leave a sleek and straight line across the whole lid that extends all the way down to the outer half of the lower lash line! Rock and roll has never looked so chic!

Return to the 80's - Mara Hoffman

Thanks to this makeup look from Mara Hoffman, beauty addicts no longer need to be scared of 80’s beauty trends! First, forget all about dark, bushy brows and colourful shadow extending all the way to the brow bone. Now, concentrate most of the colour near your lashline and blend outwards for a soft, ombre effect. The ombre look is extended all the way down on the lips too, by pairing the bright shadow with a faded pink lip! To achieve this, use a hot pink shade on the outer corners, followed by a paler pink in the center for a fuller pout. 

Lashes for miles - Anna Sui

If you want your makeup look to really stand out, take inspiration from Anna Sui’s beauty look! Layer up on your falsies (or mascara, whichever you prefer) for a stunning effect reminiscent of the Mod era in the 1960’s. And whether you want to finish it with red or nude lipstick is totally up to you!

Disco gold - Tommy Hilfiger

Amazingly, gold looks good on everyone. So for a chic party look that’s easy to create, take inspiration from Tommy Hilfiger and just apply some gold eyeshadow all over your lid with a darker brown on the outer corners for a more contoured look! Make sure your brows, lashes, and lips are soft for a gentle-yet-edgy vibe.

Taupe eyes & natural freckles - Sandy Liang

For a more youthful look, the models for Sandy Liang sported taupe eyeshadow and a good heaping of drawn on freckles! To recreate this at home, just take any taupe eyeshadow and apply it all over your lid, extending to the crease for a defined look. As for the freckles, just take your eyebrow pencil and lightly press it on your skin to add them! If you find that they’re too harsh, just dab your foundation brush or sponge over them for a softer and more natural finish.

What’s not to love about nude lipstick? It’s simple, elegant, and it goes well with many makeup looks! However, finding, or having, the perfect nude lippie is easier said than done, especially for those with warm undertones. Since we usually have a more yellow tint to our skin, most of the nudes that come from the West are too pink or cool-toned for us, which can wash us out (yikes!)

Luckily, advancements in makeup technology and a wider range of nude colours are coming out now so we don’t have to worry about looking sickly anymore! So if you want to find your perfect nude, just keep reading below for the 5 nude lipsticks that will suit all light to dark complexions with warm undertones!


MAC Lipstick in "Brave"

It might look like it won’t look good with warm complexions because of its pink hue, but don’t judge a book by its cover! This lipstick turns into a beautiful mauvey-nude that will suit all skintones and all undertones!

NARS Lipstick in "Dolce Vita"

For a more affordable option, this Matte Balm from Revlon will suit all warm skintones wonderfully! Don’t be fooled by it’s name, though, because this balm packs a punch when it comes to pigmentation and longevity, so you can have elegant nude lips for hours and hours without drying them out!
