New York Fashion Week S/S14 has just finished, we are barely in our winter coats yet the fashion houses are telling us what to wear next spring/summer!
As always I had my beady eyes on each show, and while I appreciate (and often drool) over the beautiful gowns, shirts and accessories my main focus is all about the new emerging makeup, hair and nail trends.
I won’t give a rundown of every show, but I will tell you my top spots for new makeup trends for next year.
First up GLITTER! Yes you heard me right, Glitter! (girly squeals)
We saw sparkle from lots of shows this year, my two favourite being Jenny Packham & ICB.
At Jenny Packham Key Makeup Artist Talia Shobrook for Laura Mercier described the look as ‘Combining a flush of innocence with a hint of naughtiness’. The makeup looked romantic, girly and sweet. Hair at the show was very 70’s with big flowing, bouncy curls and nails were painted nude with a bit of sparkle added - This was my favourite look by far!

Next up I noticed fresh, flawless, dewy faces. Described by many of the key makeup artist's as 'sporty' think 'just got out the gym glow' (without the sweat and panting) Personally I love the glowing skin look over matte skin, and this is going to be HUGE next S/S, so next year go easy on the powder and keep to a dewy liquid foundation or tinted moisturiser.
Do you like wear orange lipstick often? No? Well you will be next year according to the runway! Orange lips where all over the catwalk at NYFW - buy an orange lippy or if you are a little hesitant, a sheer orange lipgloss and try the trend for yourself next year.
Blue eye shadow also made an impact this year, with everything from pale, sheer blue to bright blue - basically if you love blue next year is your year. For an on trend blue stick to cool mid toned shades.
Marc Jacobs S/S14
Obviously there are many more emerging trends for next year including sleek straight hair (throw away the rollers?! NEVER) and matte nails, but above are my favourite trends. Of course you don't need to try them all, and if you simply hate blue eye shadow don't wear it! But have fun with new trends, its always good to try new things.
Up next London fashion week. I'll be keeping my fashionable beady eyes out for the new trends from this side of the pond, I imagine I will see alot of the above, and hopefully more!
