five alternative beauty trends to take away from nyfw
They say that beauty comes in all different forms. But it comes especially in these ones. From bright pink lips at Jeremy Scott to a painted on eyebrow (yup, just the one) at Hood By Air, this is what you should be wearing from now on.
Get the eyebrow look
Who needs two eyebrows when you can just enhance one? Redefining conventional notions of beauty, Hood By Air makeup artist, Inge Grognard, demonstrates yet again why it's good to break the rules. In fact why stick to your eyebrow outline at all?
I'm sick *coughs*
You know that look that all the cool girls have? That sickly rock goddess look? Well now you can have it too. Worship at the altar of punk by following Alexander Wang's lead. Think bleached eyebrows, chopped off hair a la Katie Moore, heaps of brownish red under the eyes, and a look that says, "I don't give a fuck." Why would you when you look this?
English rose (in America)
Channelling that classic English rose look, but with a modern gothic twist, Rodarte was all about pale skin, clean eyes and velvety rouge noir lips. Team this with earrings made out of real orchids and a crown of metal flowers, and you'll be good to go.
From bright pink Barbie hued lips to turquoise eyes and sequin stars stuck on to the side of models' cheeks, Jeremy Scott was all about "cowgirls in space, pin-up girls with a pop twist", all thanks to makeup artist Kabuki.
Forget everything you know about beauty. Rip up the rulebook and make like Rihanna's bevy of badass beauties with their black lips, chalk white hair, and cold, hard stares.
