The Best Beauty Looks from NYFW for Spring 2016


Another New York Fashion Week has come and gone. Now it’s time to look back at the past week’s best hair, makeup and nail trends! Which do you think will become major trends come spring? The extreme graphic liner spotted at Carmen Marc Valvo? Keep scrolling for our favorite looks!


@byrdiebeauty shared this snap from backstage at Proenza Schouler. Like many runway shows, they keep the makeup minimal (except for those bold, brushed-up brows!) to let the focus stay on the clothes.


Such a fun, pop art-inspired look at Nanette Lepore! @sarahluceroglam shared this photo of models with bright and beautiful eye makeup. Stila products were used to get the look.

The inspiration for DKNY’s beauty look? Confident, chic and high-powered New York women! The bold brows and red lips get that message across well. (Photo via @ByrdieBeauty)


Ethereal and romantic, the look at Rodarte was classic. Love those hair pieces! Also, don’t be surprised if the French manicure makes a comeback in the next few months…


It should come as no surprise that @ctilburymakeup is responsible for this fresh-faced, glowing look at Edun. She’s really in a league of her own.

Rachel Zoe shared this photo from backstage at her Spring ’16 presentation. From the hair to the makeup to the nude nails, the cohesive look was all about minimalism.


Part mermaid, part ’70s, the look at DVF was instantly iconic. All of the biggest names in modeling (Kendall! Gigi! Karlie!) walked in her show. Love the blue-green jewel toned eyes and big hair.


Sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid walked the runway at Tommy Hilfiger, where sun-kissed beauty reigned supreme. Flawless! @PatMcGrathReal, arguably the most prolific makeup artist at NYFW, shared this picture.

Another Pat McGrath look: simple makeup complemented by bold lips, at Victoria Beckham.

Does this count as a beauty look? Always over-the-top and entertaining, models sported intricate face masks at Givenchy. (Photo by @PatMcGrathReal)


Simple makeup, wild hair and a swipe of clear gloss (on model Lindsey Wixson’s iconic bee-stung lips) set the tone at Michael Kors. (Photo via @IntoTheGloss)

It might be Spring ’16 fashion week, but those copper lids at Altuzarra are perfect for fall! Natural, yet statement-making at the same time. (Photo via @IntoTheGloss)


Another look that can work right now are the velvety red lips spotted at Jason Wu. To get the look, try NARS’ Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella.


Delpozo always puts on such a dreamy, luxurious show. The dresses are so extravagant, that the makeup has to be quite bold to keep up. These glittery, silver lids definitely hold their own!

MAC is usually responsible for the boldest beauty looks at NYFW! At Jeremy Scott, they used black liner to create this wild graphic design.

All eyes were on the electrifying eyes at Monique Lhuillier! MAC Chromaline was used for those standout lids.


Definitely one of the more interesting beauty looks at NYFW, the girls at Hood by Air were sent out with cream contoured faces that weren’t blended in. Was this tongue-in-cheek commentary about Kardashians taking over the beauty world? Up for debate. (Photo via @TheCut)

Blue graphic liner is definitely in for spring! It’s been spotted on multiple runways. What do you think of this two-toned interpretation at Bibhu Mohapatra?

@nyfw 2

Pucker up! Bright pink lips (a springtime staple) were spotted at Badgley Mischka. Get the look with a creamy lipstick like Maybelline’s Faint for Fuchsia. (Photo via @NYFW)

At Jenny Packham, the blue liner trend was going strong. This time it was ice blue wings paired with red lips. Who says you have to choose between bold eyes and bold lips?! (Photo via @NYFW)

@intothegloss 3

The beauty at Marc Jacobs always goes against the norm, and that’s one of the reasons it’s arguably the most highly anticipated show at NYFW. This season, Marc said clumpy mascara and a spattering of glitter is in. It’s Marc’s world, we’re just living in it.
