It’s almost officially fall as it is currently the last day of summer. What better way to wrap up fashion week other than attending a Fashion Week Beauty Wrap Up presented by Lookbooker which was moderated by one of the founders of LookBooker, Renee Robbie. For those who may not know of LookBooker, it’s a site that connects people to hair, make up and nail services in NYC.
The panelists are listed below (left to right):
Renee Robbie: Founder of Lookbooker.
Daniel Vincent: Make up Artist for ten years and also founder of Kimiko Beauty which is well known for their eyebrow pencil.
Liz Cinton: Runs the Rouge make up salon: first make up salon in NYC.
Amit Abraham: 30 years of experience as a Hair Stylist, also a master hair stylist for Loreal Professionnel.
Josie Sanchez: Hair Stylist who educates other hair stylists globally on advanced coloring and styling for Loreal Professionnel.
All panelists worked through fashion week as some of the key hair stylists and make up artists for several shows. Below are some of the beauty trends that surfaced during NYFW.
As for make up, Proenza Schouler and Rodarte’s natural look is very attainable but the panelists felt that in reality, it takes quite a bit of make up to attain a “natural look”. DKNY and Jason Wu’s red lip has been trending for so long and I think its here to stay. I love a red lip! It’s actually my favorite lipstick to wear. The panelists also loved Marc Jacobs and Altuzarra’s bold colored eyes .
Hair has always been a huge statement in fashion shows. Bibu Mohaptra and Herve Leger’s structured braids shows that the texture of hair in fashion is changing. According to Amit Abraham, the runway is producing wet hair. First Lady by Pamela Humphrey and Zac Posen’s simple sleek hair are classic on the runway, while Diane Von Furstenberg and Erin Fetherston’s big loose curls are the complete opposite, yet both looks are all the rage on the runway.
Late nights and early mornings have been producing a slight chilly air while the day time gives us a nice 75 degree weather. I love it. Even though fashion week is over in NY, fashion will continue to be a main subject in NYC. I wore one of my favorite textures of clothing: metallic.
Pants: Alice & Olivia
Blazer: Super old therefore I don’t know where it’s from but the tag says “Stephanie”
Button Down Shirt: H & M
Shoes: GX by Gwen Stefani
Bag: H & M
How you choose to incorporate the fashion week beauty trends into your style is up to you. Liz Cinton felt that we should be authentic with ourselves and I agree. People tend to try different things simply because it is trending, not always because they genuinely like it and it is a part of their style. There is nothing wrong with incorporating trends but in style and anything in life, stay true to who you are.
