While the main focus might be on the clothes, fashion month is about head to toe artistry as designers work with the best of the best in hair and makeup to bring their collection to life. Just as essential as staging and sounds, the beauty of the show says a lot about the vibe of a collection, and the inspirations we should be buying into for the new season. From vampiric to vintage, the AW20 shows gave us wide-ranging beauty trends to suit everyone so it’s time to grab your brushes and try your hand at something a little different. Easily recreated and made wearable, these are the top beauty trends from the AW20 shows.
#1 Rich Metallics
This season saw metallic eyes get an exaggerated makeover. Leave behind a simple gold eye, AW20 beauty stepped into colour, opting for rich tones of red and green in a metallic, oil-slick finish. The Simone Rocha team graced the model’s eyes with fragmented gold leaf in red and black shades, creating a grungier take on the usually polished metallic finish. Meanwhile, Anna Sui saw disco meet Gothic as models wore metallic jewel tones blended out into a cat-eye with a dark cut-crease. Adapt the trend for day-to-day by blending one tone over your entire lid, and then adding some deeper shades and added glitter for the night.
