As we near the end of New York Fashion Week, we've seen a handful of designers send their prized collections down the runway. While the clothes are most definitely the most important part of the show, there's no doubt that hair and makeup make a huge impact, too. Designers must compliment their collections, but be careful not overpower them. There have already been a ton of new beauty looks on this season's runways, so we've rounded up the trends we can't wait to try—and a few that are definitely not on our to-do list!
1. Edgy Elegance at Carolina Herrera
Sometimes, simplicity is best; and the tried-and-true black eyeliner here is proof. The blush on the apples of the cheeks and highlighter on the cheeks and nose compliment the dark lip beautifully. And although the false eyelashes with glitter might be better reserved for a fancy party, we can't wait to try this look!
2. Effortless Seduction at Diane von Furstenberg
This piecy, low bun is super simple and amazingly chic. Whether running errands on a Saturday or heading to your internship during the week, this style is perfect for any on-the-go collegiette. Simply blow-dry your hair and apply blow dry balm with your fingers. Secure the hair low with an elastic, twist, and pin into a knot. Don't worry about the pieces that fall out; this helps create the messy and effortless look you're going for!
3. '70s Sophistication at Derek Lam
These dark red nails are perfect for fall. We haven't seen the traditional red mani in a while, and we absolutely love that Derek Lam is bringing it back in this darker, edgier hue!
As for the trends we definitely won't be rocking on campus anytime soon...
4. Slick and Not Sleek at Thakoon
The "slicked back" look can be very chic, but this hairstyle just looks greasy and dirty. The deep, deep side part also harkens back to our middle school days. Needless to say, we don't suggest sporting this hairdo anytime soon... unless you're stranded in the woods for a week with no shower.
5. Overdrawn Eyes at DKNY
While we're all for changing up your eyeliner and trying new styles, we're not so sure this look is the next big thing. It looks like a five-year-old was hired to do the makeup for this show, and frankly we're pretty sure that's not the look you're aiming for. Hopefully this was a one-time thing, and doesn't become a popular makeup trend!
Which trend will you be trying first, collegiettes?
