Fashion Week is always hella exciting for all the fashion girls of the world, but believe it or not, it’s equally just as exciting for the beauty gals. Just as we’re seeing new clothing trends, we’re seeing tons of new beauty trends and new ways to wear the classics that will surely inspire any creative girl.

I’m always scouring the web during Fashion Week keeping my eyes peeled for looks that catch my eye. I love all the out-there, super creative and unique looks that Fashion Week brings, but I always love to see the classics in action. Those looks are wearable enough to rock on a daily basis which is something I’m always willing to work with.

I wanted to take some inspiration from the runways of New York Fashion Week and turn them into looks that I could wear on a daily basis. Here’s what I came up with.

My eyes are always instantly drawn to a bold lip. I love to see the lips take the forefront of the makeup look (even though mine are tiny and almost non-existent compared to everyone on Instagram these days). As soon as I saw this look, I knew I had the perfect lipstick to take this look into my own life. I grabbed for my Charlotte Tilbury Matte Lipstick in “Lost Cherry” and swiped it on to finish my look. I really loved that this look featured beautiful skin, a little flush on the cheeks and nothing on the eyes. It’s really the perfect look for someone with minimal time to get ready in the morning. Just swipe on some BB Cream, blush and a lipstick and you’re pretty much good to go.

Jill Stuart

This look may be a little iffy for someone on the daily, but when you work in a creative field, I think this makeup look is totally acceptable and appropriate. Aside from the bold eyes, it’s actually incredibly simple to recreate. I tossed on some foundation to make my skin look as close as this perfect model’s skin did, filled in the brows and finished off the lips with some clear, shimmery gloss. For the eyes, I grabbed a shade that was super similar to denim blue and popped that on my lid and my lower lash line. Then I opted for a blue that was a shade or two lighter than the original blue, and I used that to blend out the edges and the lower lash line. Lastly, I used an almost-white shimmery shade in the inner corner and actually popped a little bit of the Aveda gloss into the inner corner as well for some serious shine. I think this was probably my favorite look of the four despite it being the least “wearable”.

Tadashi Shoji


As soon as I saw this look, I freaked out a little because it’s so beautiful; then my mind went straight to the Dose of Colors Eyedeal Duos that just released. I spoke a few weeks back about how obsessed I am with these and my love has not subsided at all. I’m normally not a cool-toned gal so that was something that was also intriguing to me about this look. I grabbed for my Makeup Geek Shadows (which you NEED to try if you haven’t before) in “Stealth” and “Bedrock” and created a halo eye. This is a technique where you place the color in the inner corner and the outer corner and then leave the middle empty for a nice pop of color. That’s where the Dose of Color primer/glitter combo came into play. As soon as I put this color on, my look absolutely came to life. I. Am. Obsessed.

First, the answer to your question is yes, I did dye my hair in the middle of this post. This was the most simple of the looks but I knew it was one I was going to love. For me personally, I feel like the only time I go for a full on winged liner is when I’m sporting a super dramatic eye look or going out at night, but this look required minimal makeup and just a nice, simple wing. I used my holy grail liner by Marc Jacobs for this look because I had a long day of work in front of me and this baby does. not. budge. I tried my absolute hardest to take my time and get this wing on point and the liner gods must have been looking out for me because these may or may not be the best wings I’ve done in a very, very long time. After I completed my liner, I tried my hardest to sculpt my cheekbones to look like the model’s, popped on some blush and done!
