The Top Makeup Trends of FW 2018 Fashion Weeks

This season’s round of fashion weeks ended with Paris Fashion Week on March 6th, but the stylish spirit lives on! In particular, the makeup trends that we saw on the catwalk were pretty inspiring if I do say so myself! There was a solid mix of natural and bold statements, certainly something for everyone regardless of how daring you are with your beauty routine. Now that we’ve all had a chance to let the looks sink in, it’s time to analyze and pick our favs. Here are my top five favorite beauty looks from the New York, Milan, and Paris Fall/Winter 2018 fashion weeks!

1. Ombré lips
The Helmut Lang show was adorned with ombré lipped ladies, and it made for a powerful display! An ombré lip is a fantastic way to add drama to an evening look, or even make a bold statement for a day time look. Surprisingly easy to recreate, all you need is a lip color, a lip pencil a few shades darker, and a steady finger to blend them together!

2. Clumpy spider lashes

As a self-proclaimed lash lover, I was very intrigued by the lash looks this season - especially by the clumpy spider lashes that cropped up in a few of the shows! The Cushnie et Ochs (left) and Dior (right) shows sported models with this intense lash look, and I support it 100%. I love that it feels like a fusion somewhere between a doe-eyed Parisian girl and a gorgeously gaudy version of Twiggy from the 1960’s. Worth a try for sure!

3. Color blocked lids
And we all thought color blocking was over! The color blocking trend has been reincarnated as a more subdued makeup trend, and I’m kind of digging it! The Missoni (left) and Byblos (right) shows displayed some pretty bold lids this fashion week season. Just a thick swipe of neon color across the lids is all it takes for this look, everything else can stay fairly minimal of course!

4. Brushed-up brows
While this is a reoccurring trend, the Tanya Taylor show did the brushed-up eyebrow look effortlessly. I think effortlessness is key when it comes to this beauty technique. While blatantly brushed-up brows make a bigger statement, subtly makes for a more wearable look! Plus, perfectly sculpted brows take a lot more time to achieve in the morning!

5. Jeweled Eyes
Being blinged out has never looked so good! A few shows were rocking the jewel encrusted eye look this season including Dries Van Noten (left) and Jeremy Scott (right). Adding some sparkle to a beauty routine has been done many times before, but for true stand-out style, adhesive jewels are the way to go! If you have the kahunas to make this a casual, everyday look, more power to you, but I think this look is especially wearable for music festival season, or a fun night out!
