Spotted: Top Beauty Trends From The Fall Winter '19 Runways
Old Hollywood waves
With tighter waves on the side of the side part and looser on the other, these Old Hollywood waves were seen at the Ulyana Sergeenko Fal-Winter show. A fuss-free way to elevate a blunt bob to chic and sophisticated, this hairstyle is exactly what we mean when we say “old but gold.”
Graphic matte smoky eyes
We imagine that Peter Philips, creative and image director of Dior Make-up, went: “Panda. But haute couture”, when he envisioned this look. The single-colour, matte-finish graphic smoky eye stood out against the model’s translucent skin while the rest of the makeup was kept minimal and simple. Because of the neutral undertone of the black eyeshadow, this look should suit most skin tones.
Graphic, glittery winged eyes
File this look for Halloween, or a wild night of partying. Red and pink eyeshadows have been trending for a while now, but none of the looks we’ve seen have gone as bold as this one from Chinese couturier Guo Pei’s Fall-Winter runway show.Besides the bold red colour, glitter bits as well as glitter-encrusted falsies were added to level up the look. Use a frosty pink lipstick or dab some concealer on your lips so the eyeshadow is the only splash of colour on your face.
A different and – may we say, more wearable take on the glitter eyeshadow look was seen on Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fall-Winter 2019 runway. The look is still graphic, but it is more of a strip of colour (and glitter) instead of a winged eyeliner look. Because it’s not as extreme as the Guo Pei look, you can add a dash of pink lipstick to complete the look.
A splash of eyeshadow
It seems like the fashion houses are getting serious about putting out fun eye looks this Fall-Winter season. This matte- or satin-finish version of the eyeshadow look from before was seen on the runway of Ralph and Russo. The key here is to choose a pastel shade, and you’ll be able to make it work-appropriate.
We were impressed with the huge ribbon on this Giorgio Armani Prive dress and the model’s flawless skin, but it was the chignon pulled to the nape that we are in love with. Keep lots of bobby pins and hair mousse on hand if you want to recreate this look, or you could always do a simpler version of this look by pulling your hair back into any low chignon if you’re strapped for time.
When we think about braids on fashion runways, we think elaborate, complicated ones that we will never be able to get at home. But Hungarian luxury fashion house Madleine Couture proved everyone wrong. This simple braid on their Fall-Winter show is the braid of our dreams because you can wear it every and anywhere, and get it in probably 15 minutes flat on your own.
Lebanese fashion brand Zuhair Murad’s dresses are always intricately designed so he probably doesn’t feel the need to draw attention away from them with complicated makeup looks. This is as no-makeup as no-makeup looks on the runways go – with dreamy, semi-matte skin and natural flowing hair. You can rock this look on weekends too, by making sure that your skincare is giving you the best skin ever.
It’s amazing how braids can completely elevate this looped ponytail look from the Valentino runway. Simply braid two thin braids from the sides of your hairline and use it to go round your looped ponytail to hide the hair tie from sight. Then secure with bobby pins. It’s that easy.
Super winged eyeliner look
We’d hazard a guess to say that designer Elie Saab was probably inspired by the upcoming Mulan movie, but that would be an understatement. Because the super winged eyeliner look that debuted on her Fall-Winter show was reminiscent of the evil villainesses in old-school Chinese wuxia dramas. Still, we appreciate the very Gong Li-esque (in the Curse of the Golden Flower way) look and love how bold it is.
