5 Flattering Runway Beauty Trends to Copy Now

Fashion month is always an incredible source of beauty inspiration. Twice a year, the world’s top makeup artists work behind the scenes to dream up and create the most fashion-forward looks. From no-makeup makeup to a shimmery golden glow, we scoured the latest S/S ’16 shows to find the season’s five hottest (and easy-to-re-create) beauty trends. Read on to see how you can translate them from runway to reality—the Beautycounter way.

The runway look:

Barefaced beauties sported a fresh, youthful glow—and not much else. Of course, this au naturel look doesn’t mean you have to go completely without makeup; it simply means you should appear as if you’re wearing very little.

Our way:

Start off with a natural-looking canvas, using our Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 for luminous, flawless coverage. Finish by applying our Color Pinch Cream Blusher in Hibiscus on cheeks and our Lip Sheer in Nude on lips.


goldengirl-2

The runway look:

Sophisticated golden shimmer enjoyed a moment on this season’s catwalks. Makeup artists had the Midas touch, whether it was a dab of sparkle or full-on glitter.

Our way:

For a more subdued effect, apply our Color Pinch Cream Blusher in Umber on both your cheeks and lips. Using our All Over Eye Brush, apply Color Shade Eye Duo in Champagne on your lids for a metallic yet wearable eye.


bluecrush-3

The runway look:

Another key trend? Statement-making blue eye shadow, liner, and even mascara in a wide range of shades, from electric cobalt to soft teal.

Our way:

Subtly incorporate the color into your look by lining your upper and lower lash line with Color Outline Eye Pencil in Navy. For standout eyes, keep the rest of the face neutral by applying Color Pinch Cream Blusher in Caramel on cheeks and Lip Gloss in Buff on lips.


bronze-5

The runway look:

This season, it’s more about a matte contoured face than a fresh-faced bronze glow. Models displayed a sculpted look that highlighted their cheekbones—not that they needed any help in that area.

Our way:

Help define cheekbones and emphasize features by contouring your face with our shimmer-free Color Contour Matte Bronzer in No. 1. Finish with a swipe of Lip Sheer in Petal to complement your brand-new glow.


lipservice-4

The runway look:

Bold red lips typically appear on the runway every season, but this time around, they were contrasted with almost completely bare faces for a modern vibe.

Our way:

Keep the rest of your makeup at a minimum, except for a hint of Color Shade Eye Duo in Champagne dabbed on the inner corners of both eyes. Then apply Lip Sheer in Scarlet, a universally flattering true red that works on both warm and cool skin tones.
