This week, we’ve been running around NYC with our notebook and camera in hand to capture all the hot new beauty looks at our favorite runway shows. From the stained ruby lips at Carolina Herrera to the incredibly romantic hairstyle at Carmen Marc Valvo, we guarantee you’ll want to start trying these trends ASAP!
Pretty makeup for pretty clothes—that was the goal at Carolina Herrera’s fall show. MAC makeup artist Diane Kendal focused on the lips, lightly patting MAC lipstick in Prince Noir—a deep berry color—onto the mouth, then dabbing it off with a tissue to create a sheer stain. She used Angel Blush to give cheeks a subtle flush, then drew a thin, extended line of black crème eyeliner along the upper lashes only. The jewel tone manicure (created with two coats of CND’s Dark Ruby) has a super shiny finish to contrast with the suede, velvet, and fur in the collection.
