Best Beauty Looks Of New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer '20

We bring you our edit of the most innovative beauty looks, five days into New York Fashion Week.
1. Sun-kissed skin (Tory Burch)
Since it’s the season of sun, it’s only natural that the sun-kissed looks worthy of J. Lo make it onto the runways. Even if you’re not actually tanned – because sun exposure causes premature ageing (thanks, but no thanks) – fake it ’till you make it with bronzer and more bronzer. From under your cheekbones, to around your hairline and even the T-zone, warm yourself up and throw in some freckles to make it more believable. 2. Rosy cheeks (Zimmermann)
Another element that’s quintessential when it comes to achieving the look of a bona fide beach babe? Naturally flushed cheeks, of course. Just like this sun-drenched look from the Australian label, go hard on your cheeks with coral or rosy-hued blusher atop of your bronzer. 3. K-beauty's gradient lip, but glossy (Ulla Johnson)
Gradient lips have got to be one of the greatest hallmarks of Korean beauty of all times. It’s cool again this season, and we’re not complaining. Because really, what’s there to nitpick about a look that’s quick, makes your lips look more kissable and is so low-maintenance? 3. K-beauty's gradient lip, but glossy (Ulla Johnson)

4. A slicked-back, sleek 'do (Prabal Gurung)
Nothing says “no-nonsense girl boss” more than this sophisticated hairdo. Plus, it keeps your hair out of your face. Top it off with the classic, bold red lip and you’re good to go conquer the world. 5. Your not-so-basic bangs (Acne)
We mean… bangs are bangs are bangs, right? This one from Acne isn’t your run-of-the-mill type of bangs. It’s much more jagged, much more uneven but also much more interesting. 6. Forehead highlight because, why not? (Bronx and Banco)
Those who love highlighting probably love glowing to the gods. You probably already highlight your cheekbones, cupid’s bow and the tip of your nose, so just add the forehead to the mix. 7. Neon cat-eyes (Helmut Lang)
A good cat-eye flick does a lot when it comes to making you look more awake by making your eyes seem wider. A coloured one does the same, but with an element of fun to it. Plus, it’s great for days where you want to skip on blending eyeshadows. 7. Neon cat-eyes (Helmut Lang)

8. Opposite eyeliners (Lie Collection)
Pulling off this look isn’t rocket science. All you’ve really got to do is fill in eyeliner on the top lash line for one eye and on the bottom lash line for the other. 8. Opposite eyeliners (Lie Collection)
If you’re feeling adventurous, experiment with different colour pairings. 9. Metallic under-eyes
What’s under most of our eyes? Eyebags that we cover up with a concealer, of course. This one’s a glammed-up version that covers up those pesky bags with bling-ed out powder. 10. All out '80s (Jeremy Scott)
Spotted on Jeremy Scott’s runway: big pastel wigs and bold show makeup that were reminiscent of beauty trends back in the ’80s. With black liner drawn on the outer corners of both the upper and lower lash line a la punk style, neon eyeshadows gave a pop of colours to the inner corners of the eyes. 10. All out '80s (Jeremy Scott)
Bigger hair is better hair. For a more wearable, everyday take on this hair look, simply rock a high ponytail, tease the hair downwards with a comb, go hardcore on hairspray and volumising sprays and voila. 10. All out '80s (Jeremy Scott)
11. Accented eyes (Anna Sui)
Since her collection revolves around being layered and light, it’s no surprise that the makeup looks were born of that train of thought too. This pink-and-white look by Pat McGrath that pairs perfectly well with the pink-and-white garms is to die for. We adore the ethereal touches of white liner – that was shaped like wings – coupled with star-embellished bottom lashes. 12. Matte, black wings for days (3.1 Philip Lim)
Exaggerated matte, black wings have got to be the ultimate cool girl punk statement. Let your eyes be the centre of attention when you wear your liner up to where your eyeshadow would usually be. 13. Glamorous cone-heads (Tomo Koizumi)
We just had to save the best for the last because this look that’s on model Ariel Nicholson for Tomo Koizumi has got to be one for the books. And it’s no surprise that the mother of makeup Pat McGrath was the brains behind this sparkly glam-rock look – using the Mothership Midnight Sun palette from her eponymous makeup line – while Redken’s Global Creative Director Guido Palau was that of the insane sculptural hair.
