We're nearly at the end of New York Fashion Week and already I'm excited about all the hot new beauty trends. One thing that's emerged so far across the board is a strong 1970s thread, both in hair and makeup. (Think loose languid curls and translucent skin. Or, in Marc Jacobs' case, full disco glamour!) The flip side of this has been a new minimalism, particularly when it comes to lips.
Makeup artists have been embracing nude, or nearly nude, in several of the shows. Thakoon's forest nymph collection included a bevvy of nude lipped beauties. Similarly at Derek Lam, retro 1960s eye makeup was worn with a natural lip shade. Donna Karan too, for her beautiful ethereal collection worked luminous natural skin tones with au naturelle lips. Vera Wang's also included natural lips. It's clearly a growing phenomenon. Only recently Gemma Arterton worked the 'barely there' makeup look on the red carpet. Are you a fan?
