Best in Beauty: New York Fashion Week Day One

Our favourite looks from the shows

Day one of New York Fashion Week was all about eyes. Whether they were punky and lived-in, like at Peter Som, or subtly contoured à la Kate Spade. Sleek ponytails were a close second with raw skin as a strong contender (yet again). Here’s our favourites…

Helmut Lang:

Hannah Murray for Nars made burgundy eye make-up top of our A/W14 wish list. For this almond shaped eye Hannah applied Nars Lipstick in Deborah (out June 14) straight from the bullet onto the eyelid.

Eugene Souleiman for Wella Professionals takes it back to the 90’s with his slicked back pony, using toothed headbands.

Peter Som:

Tom Pecheux for Mac Cosmetics created ‘naughty, sexy eye make-up’ that has ‘been out at a party and slept in the next day’. We’re calling it imperfect perfection. Key product - Mac Blacktrack Fluidline Eyeliner.

Diluted hues of colour were added to the models hair backstage by Wella Professional’s Eugene Souleiman. We loved the soft violet and golden copper extensions that just peeked through.

Simplistic and sophisticated nail art created by Zoya Nails using hand-mixed polishes, unique to the show.

Kate Spade:

One super high, one slung low – we loved the two types of thick, swishing ponytails created by Tommy Buckett for Garnier.

Lyne Desnoyers for Mac Cosmetics wanted to create a ‘super polished, globe-trotting woman who oozes sophistication’. Mission accomplished with this flawlessly gorgeous look.

Almond shaped, nude nails finished off this uptown girl image. Two coats of Deborah Lippman Polish in Naked was all it took.

Rag & Bone:

Gucci Westman for Revlon wanted the girls to look laidback and ‘street’. This just makes us want to be Rag & Bone’s a/w 14 girl even more (like we needed another reason).

For his Rag & Bone debut, Paul Hanlon for Schwarzkopf Oasis created candyfloss knots in the models hair. And used a WHOLE tub of Sculpting Powder per girl to get there.
