4 Fashion Month Runway Beauty Trends To Try

25 September, 2014 All, Beauty No comments

Among the many style tribes, off duty models, and to die for collections one thing you couldn’t miss were the fall beauty trends sweeping the runway. This year we saw it all from graphic liner and metallic shadows to red lips and burgundy lids. Although completely different, each designer brought a fresh new take on the typical fall makeup trends we see each year.

Tom Ford Makeup SS2015

Tom Ford showed us exactly what a smokey eye should look like while debuting his glam rock inspired collection. Charlotte Tilbury was in charge of creating the overall grunge look and instead of giving us the smokey eye we are accustomed to, she added a slight twist by using metallic grey eyeshadow and smudged black liner.  Black liner was added to the waterline as well as the metallic shadow beneath it to finish off the eyes. As always when going for a darker eye, a nude lip was paired to balance out the entire face. Tom Ford succeeded in giving us a new smoked out metallic look to try that will bring out the inner rocker in all of us.

Sophie Theallet brought us to life with her models sultry makeup consisting of glossy burgundy lids and nude lips. The focus on the bold burgundy eyes contrasted beautifully with the nude lip creating an ethereal effect I’m sure we’d all love to achieve. The glossy burgundy shadow was blended out to the likes of a smokey eye and smudged underneath the waterline.

Cushnie-et-Ochs-Spring-2015-Eyeliner

Everyone loves a good cat eye but this year we got introduced to a slightly hardcore version of the liner. Described by the makeup artist Yadim, its “Cleopatra goes to the Hamptons” vibe was a complete success for Cushnie Et Ochs. The eyeliner is extended from the inner corner of the eye all the way to the tail of the eyebrow in a thick line drawn slightly over the crease and is winged out to create a graphic liner look.

Burberry makeup SS2015

The last runway beauty trend you must try comes from Burberry Prorsum. The makeup consisted of radiant skin, matte red lips, and subtle eyeshadow. The focus of the face is obviously the gorgeous matte red lip that demands attention. To balance out the bold lip, makeup artist Wendy Rowe used a variation of shadows according to the models skin tone to give off a subdued eye look that wouldn’t distract from the lips. As for the skin, it was all about highlighting and creating a “candlelight” glow.

Victoria Beckham has unveiled her first London boutique, which perfectly embodies the designer’s minimalist-chic aesthetic. The space is located on Dover Street in London, and boasts 6,040 square feet that spans three floors. The stunning boutique features polished concrete floors, stainless steel counters, golden chain hangers and oversize dressing rooms.

Beckham acknowledges her long-term fan base that predates her high fashion days, telling WWD that she wants all visitors to feel welcome at her store, whether they intend to make a purchase or simply wish to admire the architecture: “There are a lot of people — the general public — who’ve continued on this journey with me, and I want everybody to feel welcome, whether they’re going to buy something, or whether they just want to come and check out the architecture. And I really wanted people to get a sense of me the minute they walked through the door.”

The store is set to open on Thursday, and according to WWD, will stock Beckham’s ready-to-wear and denim lines in addition to “exclusive sunglass styles, small leather goods, key rings and a skate chain inspired by the one her husband David Beckham wears.”
