New York Fashion Week Beauty Trends to Try Now
We know what we’re doing this snow day.
Nor’Easter. A three-syllable threat that sends Wonder bread flying off Shop & Stop shelves and causes Poland Spring stock to skyrocket.
While the rest of the County loads their garages with enough NaCl to salinate the Hudson in preparation for Thursday’s supposed mega-storm, why not stock up on products from your favorite local beauty boutiques, with a day of trying your hand at the best looks from this past week’s autumn/winter ’14 shows in the City in mind? After a snowed-in day of practice, you’ll be beautifully big-date, or Gal-entine’s get-together, ready come Friday.
Looks to get inspired by:
I loved Aveda’s super-relaxed, French-girl-cool waves, created by gently twisting sections of hair while blow-drying, then slipping it all into a loose chignon for hold before letting strands cascade effortlessly over models' shoulders.
Donna Karan New York
Adapt this sultry-modern metallic eye—created by MAC (available at The Westchester mall, Macy’s in Yonkers, and Bloomingdale’s) with the image of “a woman out in New York at night” behind it—for intimate Cupid’s Day plans, paired with a perfect-fit LBD and the finest Champagne you can order.
Aveda Global Creative Director Antoinette Beenders created a “country girl meets urbanite” look—rather Westchester-esque, no?—with “a clean, natural feel but still convey[ing]…a refined grittiness.” Each ’do was gently tousled before being finished with Aveda’s Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil (find it at a nearby salon).
Crimson and rose not your colors? Graphic metallics were big on nails (as well as eyes) for AW14. The girls will appreciate your fashion-forward matte black mani with chrome detailing—also courtesy of the geniuses over at MAC, who used Mylar stripping tape to create the effect—over cocktails and happily-single celebrations.
