Growing up, I’d tirelessly devour the coverage of every fashion week around the globe. When the time came, I’d spend hours combing through designer looks, pinning them to my wall for inspiration, and most importantly (and now very relevant to my job title), lusting after the out-of-this-world beauty looks that seemed to get better and better every year. Not much has changed. I still follow fashion week coverage like it’s nobody’s business and I also keep a very well-rounded Pinterest board of looks spread across beauty and fashion for the occasion.
You’d think by now there isn’t much left to do creatively in the world of makeup and hair that hasn’t already been done, but fashion week always challenges this notion. I’m always both surprised and delighted by the runway beauty looks created—whether they’re a tad unrealistic for everyday wear or not. To give you some insight into what beauty trends are brewing for the upcoming spring/summer season, I’ve pieced together some exciting patterns spotted on the runways of each major city from New York to Paris and Milan. I know, you’re dying for a sneak peek. Think heavily lined lids, strong metallics, and a hefty dose of glitter. Keep scrolling for more, including a few products to re-create each look with.
