NYFW FW18: Best beauty looks

Take a New York minute

Text: Renée Batchelor

With just the right blend of sophistication and sass, and a bold and assured use of colour, the New York runway shows were a masterclass in wearable makeup trends

We love watching what the makeup and hair gods have in store for us as they send the models stomping down the runways in the big four fashion weeks. Make no mistake about it, legendary names like Pat McGrath and hairstylist Orlando Pita are the ones that are setting the trends and creating those oh-so-covetable looks you'll see everywhere from Instagram to online round-ups. And while beauty vloggers and Instagrammers may have the huge followings, it's these industry stalwarts that are providing a lot of the creative spark and level of taste that we sorely need in these OTT times.

Kicking off the festivities, was New York and the looks were chic, pared-down (with the exception of certain shows like Jeremy Scott) and almost always wearable — there's definitely a cool, NYC vibe running through these sophisticated takes on makeup. Whether it's a dash of colour on the lids, a shot of neutral shimmer or a plush red lip that will outlast the wildest parties, there was makeup inspo aplenty as starlets-models like Gigi and Bella Hadid and Jourdan Dunn lent their beautiful faces as the ultimate canvases.
