The 5 Biggest Beauty Trends Of New York Fashion Week AW23

New York Fashion Week usually delivers a well-balanced beauty diet, and this season, said menu was personalised. Though trends born of media (both mass and social) permeated artists’s approach to hair and make-up, the details were tailored, in part, to the wearer, with an aim to enhance natural attributes and energy. 

From earthly (see make-up artist Diane Kendal’s cadre at Khaite) to otherworldly (see Isamaya Ffrench for Thom Browne, who gave the make-up artist full license to create), autumn 2023’s looks spanned aesthetic realities, merging over-the-top application with barely-there finishes to at times startling effect. The result was a beauty buffet that both appealed to innate tastes and supplied enough charisma to encourage us all to sample something new. Here, five hair and make-up trends that defined New York Fashion Week, the official foray into fashion month.

The Wednesday effect

The release of Netflix’s Wednesday in late November came with a want of polished goth to which no one is immune – including the artists behind autumn 2023’s runway looks. Slightly sinister “goth fairy beauty” beauty reigned at Rodarte, with various takes on exaggerated siren eyes paired with noir lips and nails, Sandy Liang, with accessories (hello, snoods) and moody pouts, and at Batsheva, where a few eccentric details felt directly referential. 

The molten metallics

Scintillating escapism made its way into more than one show this season, shapes and shades of refractive metallics guiding looks into fantastical territory. A selection of models at Prabal Gurung offered a gilded “third eye,” while Isamaya Ffrench’s out-of-this-world creations at Thom Browne played heavily in metallic elements. And at Altuzarra, shimmering brush-stroked lids offered a copy-cat worthy method of application.  

Glossy, slicked hair

This season, practicality emerged with minimalist-leaning aesthetics led by a sleek finish. The shellacked centre parts at

Hailey Bieber’s Minimalistic Fashion Evolution Through the Years: Photos

Cutouts! Catsuits! Cargo! Hailey Bieber — née Baldwin — is notoriously Hollywood’s It-Girl. The influencer has long been hailed as a fashion icon, even before marrying Justin Bieber in 2018. Together, the couple has slayed at the Met Gala, Grammys and Billboard Music Awards, serving up major #couplegoals. Hailey, however, is still a moment on her own. The model slays every red carpet she steps foot on, gracing Us with her elegant but minimalistic style. She favors slip dresses and figure-hugging frocks that all come in muted shades and earthy tones. Her go-to brands include Saint Laurent, Elie Saab, Cushnie et Ochs and Zuhair Murad. The dirty-blonde beauty’s off-duty wardrobe is also pretty sweet — thanks to distressed denim, beanies, loafers and combat. While on a date with the “Peaches” singer in New York, the trendsetter wore a casual mini dress by Wardrobe NYC. The adorable ensemble was finished with buttons lining the center, and she paired it with a pair of knee high boots by Gia Borghini x RHW and Balenciaga sunglasses. One of the Rhode Beauty founder’s most standout looks came at the 2022 Met Gala. The theme that year was In America: An Anthology of Fashion, and she delivered the drama. Bieber commanded attention in an ivory Saint Laurent masterpiece, featuring a halter neckline, loose fit, and thigh-high slit. She paired the pearly number with a feathered cape and sheer black tights. For glam that night, the Arizona native rocked a dewy face, feathered brows, rosy cheeks, light mascara and pink lips. Her locks were parted down the middle and styled in her signature slicked back bun. She teamed the delicate getup with diamond earrings. Another killer look she sported was at the 2nd Annual Academy Museum of Motion Pictures Gala in October 2022. The beauty guru

48 Not-to-Miss Beauty Looks From the Milan Fashion Week Runways

See all the standout hair and makeup looks, fresh from the Fall 2023 shows.

It may be called fashion week, but a runway show would be woefully incomplete without its carefully crafted accompanying beauty look. Hair and makeup can be the finishing touch that makes a collection memorable. This was certainly the case at fall-2023-milan” data-ylk=”slk:Milan Fashion Week Fall 2023;elm:context_link;itc:0″ class=”link “Milan Fashion Week Fall 2023, where designers leaned on their glam teams to deliver some artful and inventive beauty-driven moments on the runway.

Multiple runway shows turned to exaggerated lashes to make a beauty statement: At Prada, makeup artist Pat McGrath adorned models’ lids with faux feathered lashes in pastel colors. For Vivetta‘s makeup look, artists relied on liner for a drawn-on false lash effect, concentrating the adornment on the outer corners of the lower lash line.

Punk-y hairstyles — which we also spotted all over Milan street style — reigned supreme on the Italian Fashion capital’s runways, with both Act N°1 and Moschino giving models dramatically spiky looks.

Halfway House entrepreneur stays ahead of the competitors with her beauty salon business Yandys Looks

Local opulent beauty salon Yandys Looks was designed as a brand with a powerful global appeal that would influence the entire continent positively.

Cosmetics and beauty graduate businesswoman, Yandiswa Tshobeni founded her beauty salon in 2019 operating as a mobile spa which subsequently transformed into a walk-in lifestyle experience for the rich and famous in and around Midrand.

The 28-year-old Halfway House resident’s mission is to provide skin, nails, and hair services and products through a commitment to research, and a digitally innovative shared value strategy.
Her decision to launch her salon was motivated by the number of messages she had received on her social media asking her where she went for her make-up, hair, nails, and clothing.

“Every time I would post pictures of myself, I would receive such questions and I was convinced that people actually love my looks hence the name Yandys Looks.

“That motivated me to start my beauty business and also the fact that I feel confident when I am helping others be the best that they can be, and also helping to raise their confidence and self-esteem.”

Tshobeni encouraged the youth to always believe in themselves because if they didn’t, others would always discourage them. “Discouragement will make you have doubts and you will leave everything as it is. You will never know if it was gonna work out or not.”

The entrepreneur also advised people who wanted to start a business to do research and find other people in the same industry as well as mentors who could guide them during challenging times.

Tshobeni came from humble beginnings, being raised by a single mother who struggled to make ends meet. “My mom was a very strict parent but it was all worth it because I grew to be a very strong, independent, and

Meanwhile, the Modern Family alum looked fabulous in a shimmering hot-pink midi gown, which featured a single off-the-shoulder detail, ruching across the torso, and a bedazzled ivory asymmetrical bust. Sofia paired her look with metallic silver strappy heels and statement earrings. For beauty, she opted for a smokey eye and fuchsia lipstick.

Heidi previously opened up about her “eclectic” taste in fashion during an interview with Yahoo Canada.

“I’m eclectic. Because I feel like I have so many different personalities. I don’t know about you, but I go in the closet and I’m like, ‘Well, what do I want to be today?’” she said. “Sometimes I kind of feel, like, hippie, you know, then I have my hair curly. And then, you know, I have my sandals on and a long dress with flowers. And then another day, I’m like, ‘I feel I want to be really sexy today.’ I want to have a short little skirt

Stella McCartney Raises the Bar on Beauty with “Conscious” Skin Care Line

LONDON — After 16 years, Stella McCartney is taking another run at beauty with the launch of a clean skin care line called Stella, created in close collaboration with her minority partners lvmh-second-quarter-sales-up-27-percent-helped-by-weak-euro-1235262325/” data-ylk=”slk:LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton” class=”link “LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton.

True to McCartney’s minimalist mantra, the brand is launching with just three products: a cleanser, serum and cream.

The new line is an ambitious project that wants to tick as many eco-boxes as possible, with the fewest number of products and ingredients.

“I am not that person who wants to buy into a million products for different areas of my face. I don’t want all of that stuff in my life,” said McCartney.

“I want less, and I want it to work. I want it to be honest and to complement my way of thinking, and of living life. I obviously wanted to do the cleanest skin care that we could do in luxury, the purest of the pure,” she added.

For the past three years McCartney and a dedicated team from LVMH worked on the formulations and packaging, with the products’ fresh, grassy scent developed by the perfumer Francis Kurkdjian. Clove leaf, pine resin and mentholated eucalyptus are the chief notes.

McCartney’s vision for the products was bound to a childhood spent in the Scottish outdoors, at her family’s farm on the Kintyre peninsula in western Scotland.

LVMH has set up a dedicated maison to host the collaboration. The maison sits within the group’s Luxury Beauty division, and aims to tackle the challenges inherent in building an ultra-clean, green collection.

“We want to raise the bar on sustainability in beauty,” said Stephane Delva, director of New Beauty Projects at LVMH Perfumes & Cosmetics.

Target Is Making It Super Easy to Identify Black-Owned Beauty Brands

I’ve been a beauty editor for more than a decade so I generally know what brands are Black-owned and which ones aren’t even if they cater to the Black community. But even I need a reminder while shopping. black-owned-beauty-brands-target/” data-ylk=”slk:Target’s Black-owned brand badge” class=”link “Target’s Black-owned brand badge came just in time. While we’re all making an effort to shop more from this community, Target is helping make it a little easier. It’s not perfect (I have some issues with this badge and I’ll explain) but it’s a great step in the right direction.

You might not even realize Target has many Black-owned beauty brands. The retailer has been doing a great job investing in textured haircare, vibrant beauty products and clean skin care from both new and established Black founders. Because don’t forget. According to the Washington Post, only 1 percent of venture capital dollars went to Black start-up founders in 2018. It’s that much harder for people of color and women to get funding and start a company.

This new online badge will help you be able to find these brands but like I said, it’s not perfect. Here’s what it looks like on our favorite, The Lip Bar. It’s right where you’re used to seeing the Clean and Vegan tags.

The badge says “Black Owned or Founded Brand.” That means, brands here might not be owned by Black people anymore and that’s something to keep in mind. If you want to support a Black-owned company, do a little extra research. Brands such as Shea Moisture were bought by huge corporations like Unilever (in the case of Shea Moisture) and that’s who you’re giving your money to. These

Inside beauty salon as country lives under strict Taliban rule

We drove along Butchers Street in Kabul, the stripped carcasses of lamb and goat hanging on meat hooks swaying in the wind, gaggles of men argued over prices and butchers boys heaved the meat onto their backs and delivered them to waiting trucks.

At the end of the street, an intersection marked the end of the meat market and the start of a series of colourfully painted buildings.

The names of the beauty shops somewhat gave the game away.

We pulled over and it was agreed that Sky producer, Dominique van Heerden, would go over and have a peek inside.

We had agreed with the owner of one of the salons that Sky News could come film and interview her, but we were early.

The caveat was that only Dominique could go inside.

The Taliban have decreed that no men, under any circumstances, can ever go inside the parlours.

One assumes they believe the pathway to eternal damnation begins in a beauty parlour.

Dominique is a top producer but for this mission she was to be producer, reporter and camera operator – so she needed to see what it was like and come back to discuss with our regular camera operator, Toby Nash, what equipment she might need.

We watched as she crossed the road, head to toe in a black abaya and shawl, and disappeared behind a billowing curtain.

A few moments later she reappeared.

“It’s rammed with women inside,” she said. “And they are in skinny jeans, T-shirts, and high heels… I wasn’t expecting that!”

Armed with camera, phone and microphones she bade us goodbye and disappeared behind the curtain once again.

It felt like another world – Dominique recounts what she sees inside

Even before I stepped through the dark curtains separating the beauty salon from the

Emma Watson Revives Pixie Haircut for Prada Fragrance Campaign

Out with the new and in with the old.

Emma Watson has revived her pixie cut for her new campaign with Prada Beauty. Watson is the face of Prada’s new women’s fragrance, and on Thursday, Prada Beauty unveiled Watson’s new look when it shared a promotional photo of the actor on Instagram.

In the picture, Watson, 32, wears Prada’s silver triangular earrings and a bright orange top. She also re-created beauty-beast-harry-potter-t108913″ data-ylk=”slk:one of her old hairstyles” class=”link “one of her old hairstyles, showing off a choppy pixie cut with baby bangs.

In the caption, Prada Beauty explained why it wanted to partner with Watson.

“Our muse is more than just a muse. More than just a face. More than the perfect embodiment of the Prada woman. She’s the epitome of female modernity, a celebration of female multi-dimensionality across the world,” it said.

According to watson-directs-fronts-prada-paradoxe-campaign-1235300051/” data-ylk=”slk:Women’s Wear Daily” class=”link “Women’s Wear Daily, Prada Beauty’s new fragrance is called Prada Paradoxe and Watson will be making her directorial debut with the campaign.

“I think it was serendipitous that Prada came to me with this project,” Watson told WWD. “It was around the time when I had decided in my heart, and my head, that I wanted to direct something. I found the concept of being a woman who’s a paradox so interesting.

“Something that really stuck out to me when I was sent the idea for the fragrance was that Prada is about upstream narratives. And I instantly thought, ‘Oh, my God, that’s me,’’” she continued. “‘That’s how I feel.’ I feel like I’m always running against the current.”

KVD Beauty Everlasting Hyperlight Liquid Lipstick: An Honest Review

Way back when, during the days of sweet high school summers and carefree college nights out, my girlfriends and I would always make our way to our nearest Sephora and test the latest lip colors or powerfully pigmented liquid eyeliners in the sea of products and brands. And somehow, without much fail, I would always leave with a new KVD Beauty find in hand.

As a beginner beauty lover (who is now a passionate beauty writer), it was of note even back then that its cosmetics range was all about serious pigment, akin to an ever-inked tattoo on skin. And though the market is super saturated and filled with so many incredible brands these days, KVD Beauty is still churning out products that are just as good … Which is why I was struck with so much nostalgia when I learned that my OG-fave brand was bringing back a most-loved liquid lipstick, now reformulated to perform even better than before. What’s more, they’ve tapped Paris Jackson as a global partner and face of the new lip collection, also being appointed the co-creative director on the fitting fairycore, grunge-y photoshoot. Consider me (majorly) intrigued.

Good thing is: The liquid lipsticks are officially available to shop — so here’s the tea before you buy.
