The makeup looks that came out of New York Fashion Week were definitely worth noticing, but not in the way where you want to rush home to practice them on yourself. No, New York Fashion Week went all out, creating the most bazaar makeup to ever hit the runway.

Can we even call this makeup? It’d be a real treat to know what the inspiration is behind this look. As you can see, his face is completely covered in jewels of different colours.

This look is so interesting. As we can see the lashes are sitting on the cheeks, attached to the design of the makeup instead of the eyes. The face is shaded in many colours and also includes a bit of bedazzling. Can we see a trend forming here?
Don't be a Drag, just be a Queen

Just look at them eyes, lips and cheeks. The colours here and absolutely popping. There’s definitely some drag inspiration behind this look with the deep colouring, the bold eyes, not to mention the wigs and female clothing.
New York Fashion Week definitely bought some crazy and creative looks to the runway, while also tying in some powerful messaging, especially surrounding the drag look. While New York and London Fashion Week have now passed, it will be interesting to see what kind of styles come out of Milan and Paris. New York makeup will definitely be hard to compete with, but let’s see them try.
