Create bold, sexy, fresh and modern looks inspired by the fall/winter 2019 runway.

GLITTER LIPS

Pretty Pout
Glitter equals one part high glamour and one part fairytale! At Rodarte, “the makeup for th[e] show was inspired by the vibrant glitter from classic Hollywood musicals,” said James Kaliardos using NARS Cosmetics. It’s easy to do for holiday parties – apply lip pencil, creamy lipstick (important, so that the next layer will stick) and glitter.

NEW WAVE

Flowing Tresses
For best results, begin with hair that has not been washed. Separate hair into one-inch sections. With a large brush, lightly coat each section with lightweight styling gel starting one inch from roots to ends. Rather than placing the curling iron on the ends of hair and rolling up, wrap an entire section around the iron’s open barrel, then clamp down.

HAIR CHAINS

Accessory
Polished low ponytails ruled at Ralph Lauren, Badgley Mischka and Cushnie. But taking it to the next level was Justine Marjan, TRESemmé ambassador who intertwined strands of hair with metal chainlink at Christian Siriano. This look ups the ribbon game, and gives locks a modern, urban edge.

LUXURY WEARABLE GLOW

Skin
Nothing beats simplicity and this ethos was on full display at Alexander Wang. “This show was an ode to American sportswear and a look at the future. We kept the skin beautiful with glowy cheeks and lips using different shades and textures of NARS Orgasm,” said makeup artist Diane Kendal using NARS Cosmetics. The versatility of this look is what keeps it coming back season after season.
