The beauty looks from NYFW SS17 that we’re low-key obsessed with.
Hair Accessories FTW
The latest crop of hair accessories are less Blair Waldorf and more edgy and unexpected. Think buckles repurposed as hair ties and ‘90s bandana headbands, seen at Tibi and Baja East, respectively. See also: the hair at Adam Selman and Ryan Roche.
Bold, vibrant lip color gets an upgrade with a dual-toned application.
At Jason Wu, makeup artist Yadim used a combo of Maybelline Loaded Bolds Lipstick in Orange Danger, Vivid Matte Liquid Lisptick in Orange Shot, and Colorblur Matte Lip Pencil in Cherry Cherry Bang Bang to create a fiery look.
Cushnie Et Ochs
At Cushnie Et Ochs, Sammy Mourabit for MAC painted the models’ lips with MAC Lip Pencil in Cherry and Pro Chromographic Lip Pencil in Process Magenta.
No-makeup makeup isn’t going anywhere, as proven at shows like Zac Posen, Mansur Gavriel, and Tommy Hilfiger.
James Boehmer, Nars Director of Global Artistry, gave models at Mansur Gavriel a feathery brow and just-bitten lips, breathing new life into the no-makeup makeup trend.

“There's a freshness and ease to the look with a focus on pinched cheeks, lips and a feathery brow. Some of the girls also have a pink, red-stain on their lips to create a bitten effect. There is something a bit 70's girl next door about the look but in a barely there sort of way.” -@jamesaaronboehmer on the look he created for @mansurgavriel
At Zac Posen, Diane Kendal for MAC perfected models’ skin with MAC Studio Waterweight Foundation and gave cheeks a natural, youthful flush with Powder Blush in Dame and Taupe.

Makeup maven Pat McGrath kept things natural and pretty at Tommy Hilfiger, a look she described as “tomboyish but groomed.”
The wet-hair look we’ve seen on runways past goes Cali-girl cool at Altuzarra. Gilbert created the pushed-back waves by applying Créme de la Créme and Forme Fatale before brushing hair back and drying with a diffuser.
Here’s how supermodels do formal hair.
Odile Gilbert, Kérastase consulting hairstylist, used the brand’s Créme de la Créme to give hair a wet look before pulling it all back into a high bun—save for a few face-framing pieces—at Thakoon.
Thom Priano created this soft, charming style for Reem Acra. He used R+Co Continental Glossing Wax to give separation to curls, then smoothed on Tinsel Smoothing Oil for extra shine and to control flyaways.
All That Glitters
This season, glitter toed the line between whimsical and grown-up, and we couldn’t be more obsessed.
At Vivian Tam, Stila makeup artist Sarah Lucero accented models’ eyes with a bold dash of silver.
Models walking the runway at Rodarte sported nails adorned with gold glitter in an unexpected place: on their cuticles. #love!
Models at Custo Barcelona sported gilded eyelids and perfectly groomed brows.
Next-level eyeliner took center stage at Phillip Lim and Altuzarra. The dramatic look was balanced by a neutral face and eye makeup.
Francelle Daly for Nars went bold at Phillip Lim, drawing on thick lines with Nars Carpates Eye Liner Stylo. #onpoint!
