The Beauty Trends Taking Over New York Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week is well and truly underway, and with it comes a novel batch of beauty fads, as well as the resurgence of some familiar faces… Each spring and fall, the hallowed runways bring forth hints and tips of what will blow up the following season, and the harbingers of fashion bring in the most talented and creative beauty artists in the industry to get the job done. It can be difficult to discern what exactly is in and what’s out, so we’re here to help decipher that for you.  

Raw Glamour


Maximalism, at least for the time being, appears to be out. Untouched skin has been spotted all over from Prozena Schouler to Kate Spade. Natural features such as undereye bags, freckles and tans are all being spotlighted and enhanced, and it’s clear now we are moving away from the flawless IG baddie craze towards something a little fresher. Also adding to this look is the resurgence of an old fashion favourite, wet hair. The sleek look, especially in collaboration with untouched skin, has been sported all over this season from 11 Honoré to Peter Do to Caroline Herrera and it looks like this trend will be a mainstay way into the winter months – so get your caster oil ready.  

Pop Of Colour 

Playful pops of colour, whether that be bold block eyeshadow or sleek neon liner, have been firmly à la mode all of this year – and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Purples, turquoise, hot pinks and royal blues have been featured around the clock this season on the runway for the likes of Alice + Olivia and Prabal Gurung; but we have to give a special shoutout to Marni’s rainbow foreheads for the coolest use so far, kudos to make up artist @yad1m.

Sleek Buns

Slicked back buns with side partings *gasp* were a staple this fashion week from Christin Siriano’s Hepburn-inspired style to No Sesso’s spiky futurism. The most surprising part of this trend is, of course, the revival of the side parting which had previously been doomed to cheuginess by Gen Z – but we’re here to tell you that it is in fact alive and well. The look can be worn in a chic, classic manner with a low bun and gelled back fringe waves or spiked up in the back for a cyberpunk twist.


Chrome has been making waves for some time now and is set to be the coolest nail trend of the season. Spotted on the catwalk for the likes of Rebecca Minkoff and Tommy Hilfiger, the lustrous look is experimental and chic in equal measure and will definitely set you apart from the crowd. More mature than its glitter counterparts but more youthful than a basic mani – this style is an effortless way to elevate any look this fall.

Grunge Revival 

The 90’s always seem to be influencing one thing or another, and the grunge renaissance is truly in full effect this season. Dark, lived-in eye makeup worn alongside natural skin and eyebrows were seen at Pat Bo, Jason Wu, Tommy Hilfiger and Altuzarra. This classic cool girl makeup is perfect for looking effortlessly fashionable on a night out with only a few products. Grungy hair and accessories were also seen across the runway from twisted mohawks to – our personal favourite – facial piercings at the Rebecca Minkoff show. With punk, grunge and glamour set to be favourites going into the winter, getting a smokey eye look down is the best tip we can give you to be on trend this season.
