London Fashion Week is now in full swing and with NYFW recently wrapped, we’re seeing a variety of pretty and innovative beauty looks on the runway. Some of those looks were already seen on the red carpet at the Emmy awards. They range from dewy skin to just-bitten lips, plus new takes on the cat eye and definitely lots of color. The best part about all these looks? They’re super easy to do and you can rock them IRL. In this two-part series we’re showcasing some of our favorite trends from the Spring/Summer 2018 collections, breaking down how makeup artists made the looks their own and show you how to DIY.

Brock Collection: It was all about the eyes at Brock. Makeup artist Gucci Westman created a warm, matte burgundy eye look with hints of bronze. To recreate this bold eye, begin by lightly tapping the Maybelline Color Sensational Matte Metallics Lipstick in Molten Bronze all over your lids then sweep on the Expert Wear Eye Shadow Mono in Fierce Fuschia. For added drama, Westman mixed shades from The City Mini Palette in Chill Brunch Neutrals and The Eyestudio Burgundy Bar Palette (not yet in stores).

Beauty Tip: Use a fluffy brush to soften the crease and blend. Using the Master Precise Skinny Gel Liner, line the upper lash line and the waterline. Finish with a few coats of Lash Sensational Mascara for fanned out lashes. This is supposed to be a Spring look, but we’re looking forward to trying it out this season as well.

Tom Ford: Here’s a new take on the cat eye. Pat McGrath created a graphic and glittery rounded wing eyeliner for the runway. Replicate the look using a black eyeliner pencil. For the show, McGrath applied Tom Ford’s Eye Defining Pencil in Onyx on the top and bottom lash lines. As you line the lids, make the line thicker and curve it across the lash line. Tap on an eye gloss which acts as a glue for the glittery black shadow that is layered right on top.

Jason Wu: Makeup artist, Yadim, had a similar approach to Tom Ford’s rounded wing eyeliner. This take on the graphic eye was slightly more smudged and had no gloss or glitter. Using Maybelline’s The City Mini Palette in Urban Jungle, Yadim stamped the outer corners of the eyes with a dark green shadow. He even added faux freckles on cheeks, nose and the forehead using the Brow Precise Micro Pencil in Blonde, helping create a young and natural look.

Marc Jacobs: Now we have even more ways to wear a winged eye thanks to lead makeup artist, Diane Kendal, who created eight different eye looks backstage at Marc Jacobs. She used three different eyeliners including, Marc Jacobs Beauty Fineliner Ultra-Skinny Gel Eye Crayon in Blacquer, Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Blacquer 42, and Magic Marc’er Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Blacquer. Each cat eye was based on the models eye shape and the rest of the look was kept natural and fresh.

FENTY PUMA: With the launch of Rihanna’s Fenty beauty line, it’s was fitting to have models strutting down the runway wearing products from the collection. Fenty Beauty’s makeup artist, James Kaliardos layered multiple shades of the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighters in Ginger Binge/Moscow Mule, Lightning Dust/Fire Crystal, and Trophy Wife. He applied it all over the lids, on cheekbones and up to the temples. Beauty Tip: Those with lighter complexions, use the Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick in Confetti as a base before applying the highlighters for added dimension.
