Top Beauty Trends From New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2021 Show


New York Fashion Week was the hot ticket of the season this month, with everyone from Emma Roberts to Anna Kendrick, Suki Waterhouse and Gigi Hadid catching the very best shows from front row. The press was there too, capturing the very latest styles and colors, as well as the very latest looks in hair and make-up. If you missed out on the show, fear not: these are just a few trends you might like to try out in the upcoming season, based on looks worn by models on the runway.

The Cat Eye Is Here To Stay

Ever since Audrey Hepburn graced the screen in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the cat eye and false eyelashes have been a crucial component of any glamour lover’s party look. Jeremy Scott’s neon rock opera collection saw models with neon green hair and smokey pink eyes sporting cat eyes that extended upwards at a sharp angle and connected to the lower eyelid. The face itself was kept simple and almost minimalistic, with bare lips and no blusher or contour. The result was a full focus on the eyes, which will be big, colorful, and inspired by the 60s in Spring/Summer 2020.

Nail Art To Die For

Jeremy Scott’s models also lit up the catwalk with brightly hued nails. Forget about uniformity or subtlety when it comes to your hands. When visiting your nail therapist at the nail salon, ask for different inspirations and color combinations on each nail. That’s right – you should be wearing 10 different works of art on your nails if you want to truly stand out. From Miro-like spheres to jungle-inspired prints, opt for yellow, pink, burgundy, yellow, and indeed – any and every hue you’d like your nails to be.

Fresh-Faced And Breezy

Summer is the ideal time to show off your naturally bronzed looks, so if you are a ‘tinted moisturizer’ type of gal, find your inspiration in the looks presented by Gabriela Hearst and Coach. Models wore the ‘no make-up look’ with aplomb, donning little more than a touch of foundation, light contouring and the very lightest of shadow on the eyes, sans eyeliner. For a little more intensity, add a touch of bronzer just beneath the cheekbone, applying the same shade to the eyelids for a gentle smokey sensation. Minimalists will also love Michael Kors’ models, who took to the runway practically bare-faced, with the tiniest amount of liquid blush on the cheeks.

Gabriela Hearst, Michael Kors, and Lela Rose are three of many designers who embraced natural looks at New York Fashion Week. Although smokey looks and dramatic cat eyes graced the catwalk on more than one occasion, the general penchant was for bare, natural looks. To capture this fashion to perfection, opt for light-coverage foundation and choose one area of the face to jazz up – be it the eyes, lips, or cheeks. Minimalism goes beautifully with naturally sunkissed skin, so get ready to show the world how beautiful simplicity can be.
