Eyelashes for Days

Twiggy’s signature look…but make it 2019. Over-the-top, doe-like lashes are taking center stage, so stock up on your favorite mascaras and falsies.

Monochromatic Makeup

This cohesive look manages to radiate warmth and dimension without trying too hard. Lipstick as a glossy shadow? Sure. Tinted shadow applied to cheekbones? Yep. Embrace the simplicity of this trend and let yourself experiment with the possibilities.

Cross the Line

Life’s too short for boring eyeliner – at least, that’s the message we got during NYFW. Makeup artists opted for bold, graphic stripes across models’ lids, and while these playful styles might not scream “everyday, go-to look,” it’s easy enough to execute when you’re feeling adventurous.

Merlot Mouth

Wine-stained lips are as classic as it is versatile, so it’s no surprise that this quintessential fall pout got plenty of runway time. Makeup artists ditched the lip liner and focused on layering and blotting, creating an updated, diffused look. A little edgy, a little effortless, and very DIY-friendly.

Smoky Eyes

The predictable trend was given an unexpected upgrade by designers like Tom Ford and LaQuan Smith. They blended moody shades of mauve, pink, and gold, then topped it with eye gloss for a more glistening version of the classic look.

Neon Eyelids

The idea of neon eyeshadow might seem a little jarring, especially when encountered in cold-weather months, but NYFW runways were inundated with the unique shade. Whether you opt for a highlighter-inspired neon look or play it safe with something a bit warmer, makeup artists at Kate Spade and Chromat definitely challenged us to reconsider this playful trend.

Far Out

Tie-dye-inspired eye makeup? Our inner hippie strongly approves. Lots of shows this year featured a “draw outside the lines” approach to shadow and liner application, but one standout look was this uniquely smudged variety at Collina Strada, featuring abstract neon shades.
