The Beauty Runway Report: Fall Preview


The New Cat Eye

Strong brows and graphic liquid-lined eyes made a punk statement at Jean Paul Gaultier. For an everyday version, fill your brows with hair-like strokes, and extend the outer flick of your liner ever so slightly.


Nude Lips

Have no fear, red is not dead. But for fall, neutral are the lip shade of choice. Take makeup artiste Mat McGrath’s advice to find your perfect lipstick or gloss: For fair skin, try pink-based options; for darker complexions, go for caramels with a touch of brinze. Keep it youthful with a high-shine finish.


Polished Tresses

Get out your teasing comb: The styles at Versace and Peter Som gave a nod to the voluminous crowns of the ‘60s. At Carolina Herrera, hairstylist Orlando Pita dreamed up oversized buns with plenty of shine.


Must-Try Hue: Blue

The easiest way to experiment with the aqua eye trend? Trace either your upper or lower lashline with a blue liner, and “leave the rest of your makeup minimal,” suggests Kenzo makeup artist Aaron de Mey. “It looks the most modern.”


Perfect Ponies

Ponytails fastened at the nape of the neck dominate this season. What you need: a Mason Pearson brush (Orlando Pita’s go-to tail teasing tool at Derek Lam), and Redken Forceful 23 Super Strength Finishing Spray


Luxe Lashes

Look-at-me lashes were the beauty focus at Gucci, Prada, and Rochas, where makeup artist Lucia Pieroni cites the inspiration as “doll-face ’60s.” Apply at least three coats of black mascara to curled upper and lower lashes. For extra drama, add a few clusters of Revlon’s falsies.


Sleek Center Parts

“Clean, shiny, and healthy,” is how hairstylist Paul Hanlon described the polished manes at Prabal Gurung. Smooth locks with an iron.


Sultry Lined Eyes

“Think early-’90s Stella Tennant meets Carine Roitfeld,” says makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury, referring to the “lived-in” kohl eyes she created for Tom Ford. Similar looks appeared at Lanvin and at Roberto Cavalli, where makeup artist Diane Kendal blended black pencil into a triangular shape for an “updated smoky eye.” For more intensity, add shadow.


Tousled Twists

The secret to Guido Palau’s soft updos at Dolce & Gabbana: Curl your strands, braid, and twist into a bun. Finish by pulling out a few pieces in front, and spritz


Metallic Accents

Hints of silver and sheer washes of gold give ordinary shadow looks a “fresh, futuristic” feel, says Tilbury, and are easy to achieve at home. At Donna Karan, she “softly smudged” a glossy platinum across the entire lid. Rodarte-inspired glittery lips optional.


Glowing Skin

Achieving a lit-from-within glow takes more than just makeup. At Ralph Lauren, pro Tom Pecheux treated skin with serum and moisturizer. Then, to get a natural rosy radiance, he “dabbed” foundation and blush into the skin rather than swiping it on top. the result? “Gorgeous and healthy faces,” he says.
