The glitter eye
Upgrading your beauty look with sequins, a feature at the biggest shows, marking a big return to the beauty lexicon. Elegant party girls go for subtle monochrome
The fluorescent make-up
1980s style took over the catwalk with electric makeup. From a touch to a tint, models rocked neon colors on eyes and lips for an ultra-fresh result that remained strong and feminine
The smoky eye
The smoky eye is a beauty perennial that was revisited this Fashion Week. Whether it was a cat eye, airy or intergalactic shimmer, the smoky has infinite possibilities for the catwalk.
The dark lip
Giving immediate character to the face, dark lipstick was a Fall/Winter favorite spotted at the biggest shows at Fashion Week. Black or plum, matte or glossy, the models’ killer pouts were paired with dark pigments to create sassy style with just a touch of insolence.
The Twiggy lashes
Achieve doll-like lashes à la Twiggy, with the XXL makeover seen at Carven or Nina Ricci. For maximum impact, apply to both lower and upper lashes.
The silver touch
Whether a touch of eye-shadow in the corner of the eye or a flick of metallic liner, a flash of futuristic silver is a surefire way to raise your beauty game
The glossy detail
Another failsafe model look favored by make-up artists this season was the glossy lip. We're talking ultra wet-look lacquered lips, paired with shimmering eye-shadow to catch the light.
The blue eye-shadow
Reach for electric blue and make like the models on the runway at Fashion Week with a strong hue for a bold eye and cool blue gaze, ready to take on the coldest of winters.

On the Autumn Winter catwalks for 2016, short plum nails were a big hit. Not only were they short, they were rounded too, which many of us would find easier to work with on a daily basis.
