All the best beauty bits from fashion weeks around the world
If you’re even a little bit into fashion, beauty, Kendall Jenner
or world news you’ll know that we’re on the last leg of fashion week
, which takes us through NYC, London, Paris and Milan. While the clothes get most of the attention at these things, I think the beauty trends are way more exciting, and definitely more attainable than a $10000000 coat. So here’s some beauty inspo from fashion week…

Someone at Topshop
took “eye shadow” literally and put it under the peepers of all the models at their show. How bad-ass! The key to this look is to keep the shadow as close to the lower rim of your eyes as possible. And then go over it with smudge brush
, keeping your upper lids pretty clean with a thin stroke of eyeliner. It’s totally different, genius, and more edgy than a cliff. And it’s Topshop, who can do no wrong in my eyes, so I’m all for this trend taking off.
Barely-there shiny pink eyeshadow

This is my kind of makeup - easy, subtle, and pretty
without being too girly. I’m wildly fond of this trend, and my eyelids are batting excitedly for me to get a pot of cream shadow in this color that I can swipe on everyday. Alternatively, you could use a balm on my lids, and then swish a bit of pastel-coloured eye shadow over it. Sweeeeeet!
Kiss me blurred red lips

Like most on the runway this season, this trend seems super achievable
. You can also get this look (and a sugar headache) by drinking red cordial all afternoon, or by balming your lips and then dabbing lipstick all over your mouth. Don't worry if you go a bit over the lines or don’t exactly hit them– this look blurred and soft, than precise.
Questionable trends… Boring hair

Bub-bye Ombre, sayonora balayage, seeyalater streaks! This winter, we’ll all go back to having hair that’s one color and one length
. And had the life straightened out of it. I’m not a fan of this robotic cut, but I would like to give a warm welcome back to headbands
! If Marc Jacobs can make you a thing in New York then I can make you a thing in my life!

Wherefore art thou eyebrows?
I’m not a fan of this look coz I prefer brows bushy, bold
and if you dare, darker than your hair (see: Cara Delevigne
). When I see a lady (or man or giraffe) with strong eyebrows, I always pay more attention because a good set frames and even naturally contours the face. Also, this look doesn’t doesn’t seem like something you can or should DIY at home– so, I think I’ll pass.
That’s a beauty wrap. Now for a real wrap! I’ve got chicken and avo. Have you been following all the Fashion Week coverage?
