The looks were bigger, the models were bolder and the collections even crazier at this years 2017 NYC Fashion Show.

Pearl-Esque Eyes:

This year, the general trend was bold face and lips and simple eyes, keeping the eye makeup simple, natural and dewy. Replace your eyeliners with a nude shadow or glossy shimmer or, in this case, with tiny pearls and gemstones applied to the inner corner of the eyes. This intricate look really made the eyes pop without looking overdone with the bold lips.

Rich Burgundy Lips:

Although its no ground breaking revelation, dark lips have made it big this season and doesn’t look to be slowing down. Celebrity reality star Kendall Jenner was spotted with a rich burgundy lip at the La Perla show.

Strong Brows:

Last years bold brows don’t seem to be going anywhere, as models from the Michael Kors show rocked the look with their brows being their beauty statement. MAC’s lead make up artist Dick Page says “its very straight forward- a very strong brow, but not faked out, just filling it in for each girl”. Finish off by adding a little brown pencil at the lash lines and the look is complete.

All About The Forties:

Although makeup was simplistic, hairstyles certainly did not hold back. The Anna Sui Fashion Show took inspiration from the Forties, but added in a modern touch. “This season Anna was inspired by the biography of Elsa Schiaparelli and the parties she used to throw,” said Garren, who led hair for R+Co. Models with shorter lengths had their hair styled into a bowl cut, while long hairs had little pieces of their hair wrapped into mini knots at the sides of the head.  The knots were locked in with hairspray and the ends of the hair were left natural.
