Runway revised: Wearable NYFW trends feat. New York Color


Hot off the heels of New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015, the beauty world has been abuzz with all the trends as seen on the runway.  I had been following the nail trends as they happened, but the beauty ones I made sure to check out after the week ended.  It seemed like the biggest trend was keeping it simple.  From nude nails to barely-there makeup (Marc Jacobs’ models didn’t wear any makeup), it’s all about keeping it simple.  Less is more.

Although there were some drastic looks (hello, graphic liner), for the most part, recreating some of the looks from NYFW is pretty easy.  For this month’s #NYCBeautyPro theme, us bloggers were tasked with creating a refined look of the season’s most wearable runway makeup trends. Since I found most of the shows’ looks were quite refined, this one was easy. I also noticed a trend of blue liner, so I wanted to incorporate that to add some edge to the entire look.

Final 1
Steps 1. With NYC Sparkle Eye Dust in Golden Champagne, place this on the lid area.  This stuff does have a bit of fall out, so do foundation last.

2. Using a fluffy crease brush, grab the bronze colour from the NYC HD Color Trio Eye Shadow in Blues Cafe and lightly dust this into your crease.  We want to keep the look quite nude, so go light.

3. With a blue liner, like NYC Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in Sky High, line your waterline, bringing it lightly on your lower lash.  Coat your upper and lower lashes in mascara.  I used NYC Big Bold Volume By the Lash mascara.

4. To finish up the look, grab the ice blue colour from the Blues Cafe palette and place in your inner corner to highlight.

Final 2

For the nails, I used NYC In a New York Minute polish in Fashion Safari and then added some gold ombre to the tips to jazz it up. Unfortunately the colour I was wearing prior stained my nail beds, so it kind of killed the nail look for the post (beauty blogger problems).  Regardless, this one is super simple to recreate, and best of all, NYC products are super affordable and pretty good quality, considering the price. I especially love the Champagne Sparkle Eye Dust, which I’ve been pretty much wearing non-stop since I got it.
