Ready for a refresh? We rounded up the runway beauty trends worth trying
TRY A NEW HUE
Don’t shelve your wintery berry lipsticks just yet – at Max Mara they looked surprisingly fresh when worn with dreamy pastel separates. To get the look, subtly overline your pout with a matching pencil (dark shades have a way of making lips appear smaller), then use a velvet matte formula to fill in lips. It won’t bleed or smudge – critical for pulling off this bold colour. n
The glitter trend isn’t going anywhere. At Off-White, make-up artist Fara Homidi upped the ante by creating starry constellations between models’ eyes. Dab a shimmery jelly on your lids or inner corners for a look you can wear in the real world. The gel texture will stay put, i.e., there’s no fallout.
The quickest way to change your style?
Flip your part. Using a rat-tail comb, create a deep, straight side part two to three inches away from where it falls naturally.
At Fendi, hairstylist Sam
McKnight offered a more wearable version of festival hair. Try
it by separating hair into two equal sections, twist each up into a bun, and secure with a clear elastic. Pull out face-framing tendrils to soften the look.
DO THE TWIST
At Gabriela Hearst, hairstylist James Pecis served up a contemporary take on the braid. Start by dividing a low pony into two sections, twist them around each other, and tuck the ends above the loop. Keep it sleek by prepping damp hair with a light gel.
MAKE IT ’80s
From shocking yellow to fluorescent fuchsia, retro eye make-up ruled the runways. Lower the voltage by applying these New Wave shades in a sheer wash across lids, or trace the colour close to your lash line. Balance the look with a clear lip gloss. (It keeps the vibe from going too costume party.)

One of the best products you can buy this spring: a glow stick. At Chanel, Lucia Pica used a chubby gold-tinted balm to bronze and illuminate. Generously apply sheen to your cheekbones, temples, and Cupid’s bow for a just-had-a-facial effect.

When perennial brunette Kendall Jenner stepped onto the Burberry runway
with honey-blonde hair, it caused quite a stir. Copycats, take note: Adding lowlights and keeping brows natural can extend time between salon visits.
