As New York Fashion Week comes to a close today, it’s time for us to take a moment to look back and appreciate the fact that, this season, we saw more interesting hair, makeup, and nails than ever before.
While there was still a big presence of fresh faces and simple, clean hair, compared the past few seasons, this past week was pretty over-the-top (in a good way, of course). There were some interesting trends that came about, but, also, plenty of out-of-this-world looks that can’t be put into any one category. From Marie Antoinette-inspired rococo bouffants to rhinestone-bejeweled and three-dimensional cat eyes, designers and their beauty leads took some major risks this season—and it totally paid off.
Below, we rounded up 22 of our absolute favorite beauty moments to hit the runways this past week. May they provide you with risk-taking and statement-making beauty inspiration for months to come.
