Let us turn our attention from the elaborate Dragon Con ensembles and makeup of the past week to what's happening in the fine city of New York. Sure, New York Fashion Week is showing us what's to come next spring, but what's to say we can't go ahead and give these emerging beauty trends a whirl? Its all got to do with lips and this fashion week, they're candy colored, especially when it comes to the orange variety. While it may not mean that we're trading in our beloved red sour patch kid for an orange one, it may mean we're trading in the classic red lip – just a little. Bubblegum pink and cherry red are also on the menu.
Grunge and glamour are the key words when it comes to hair. Alexander Wang sent natural, but voluminous waves down the runway which he achieved by blow drying the locks 75% then misting on some texture (Evo Mister Fantastic Texture Spray will do). Then, Rebecca Minkoff proved braids aren't going anywhere by drawing inspiration from our favorite Frida Kahlo. The roughed up, braided headbands the models wore were created by plaiting three ponytails into four strand braids and wrapping them around the head before loosely pinning them into place. Chunky top knots and low, textured pony's also carried fashion week's grunge and glamour tone.
Nails also continue to be on the rise. We can't wait to visit our friends at BUFF to try Ruffian's updated nude nail which were edged with shades like violet, red and army green and Tess Giberson's grungy nail. The distressed nails were created by applying one dark coat, which was immediately wiped away leaving only a bit of polish around the cuticle. Funky enough, right?
