The Ready-to-Wear runways for Fall 2017 didn’t just give us inspiration for our closets—the powers-that-be in beauty gave the rest of the world guidelines on how we’re going to be making up our faces. From colored lids to ultra-short hair, here are our favorite looks for the season, and the products that will help you get the look yourself.
The color wheel has been an inspiration for many a beauty look, and this season it’s popping up on models’ peepers. With some imagination, the look can easily go from playful as in the two-tone lids at Oscar de la Renta, to subtly glamorous like Valentino’s burgundy cat-eyes, or even all-out artsy inspired by the graphic shapes at Maison Margiela.
Forget the perfectly lined lips of yesteryear—this season’s models look like they just got of a passionate lip-lock backstage. Erin Fetherston does the ombre lip for a subtle take on the trend, while Giambattista Valli brings on the gloss for some drama. Of course, you could take on a literal trend such as at Preen, where color smudges beyond the edges for a true just kissed look.
Almost as if an antidote to previous season’s ultra-made up contouring and defined Instagram brows, many of this year’s shows sent out models in barely there makeup. Brushed out brows, a slight hint of blush and the most natural lips gave the girls at Coach 1941, Isabel Marant and Stella McCartney an insouciance that’s definitely covetable.
Eyeliner remains one of the easiest ways to glam up your beauty look, but the RTW shows of Fall 2017 prove there are a number of different ways to do it. Balmain’s dramatic smoky eye is punched up with a glittery copper highlight, while a thick and exaggerated cat eye ups the drama at Versace. A more graphic take was seen at Marni, where eyeliner follows the different eye shapes for a truly artistic look.
Since the rampant popularity of the lob, models have been chopping off their locks for their runway looks. The ultra-short crop at Prada allows the angles of the face to really pop, while the wavy bob with side-swept waves for a chic Parisienne look. The bejeweled headband at Chanel and beret at Christian Dior are on-trend pieces that the length can be accessorized as well.
