Biggest Beauty Trends That Came Out of NY Fashion Week 2024

Although the fall/winter 2024 season of New York Fashion Week is now over, there are still some intriguing beauty trends to look forward to. Particularly this season, the runways showcased some significant hair and cosmetics trends.

Thanks to social media, especially TikTok, beauty trends are subject to frequent fluctuations; nonetheless, fashion week offers us proven methods honed by professional makeup and hair professionals. Since runway shows must be put up quickly, they are also rather simple, so you can simply replicate these outfits at home.

Scroll down to see the trends we saw at this season's New York Fashion Week if you're looking to change up your routine.

Glass Skin

Path McGrath made history with porcelain doll makeup at Paris Couture Fashion Week. This extraordinary glass skin makeup was created for the Maison Margiela line. It should come as no surprise that NYFW also featured the extra dewy look. 

The skilled makeup team at Charlotte Tilbury at Christian Siriano applied layers of the company's Hollywood Glow Glide Face Architect Highlighter (in Gilded Glow) and Beauty Light Wand (in Goldgasm, Pillow Talk Medium, and Spotlight) on the models' foreheads and cheekbones for an astounding result.

Grunge Look

This grunge style is inspired by the 1990s, with the goal of faultless makeup being artistically ruined by the weather and everyday life. It's a juxtaposition between carelessness and perfection. You may do that by applying a satin smooth face makeup and then smudging the eye area with a strong mascara and eyeliner. 

It complements the winter elegance well. However, it wasn't simply eye makeup that gained popularity. Hair guru Garren created an assortment of '90s-inspired "chic grunge" hairstyles for the Anna Sui presentation using his R+Co styling tools. One of the looks was a subtle tribute to Linda Evangelista's iconic crop, with the side bangs subtly flattened and stripped.

Voluminous Hair

For the past several years, modern styles have been influenced by the '90s beauty trends. The Fall/Winter 2024 exhibition by RetrofĂȘte paid homage to the last decade of the 20th century by dubbing the "90s Businesswoman" in their hairstyle. In essence, the look is a voluminous, bounced blowout. 

This look involves using a hair dryer and a curling iron with enough heat. Applying protective spray to the hair is highly advised because this could damage it. The hair is continuously brushed and blow-dried straight.

Red Lips

Following rounds of shiny lips, true-red matte lips have taken over the runways. Even though the color is timeless, a splash of red against pale skin looks stunning on dismal fall days. 

The models for the Thom Browne show each played distinct roles, but they were all wearing The Cardinal ($34) from Isamaya Beauty, which Ffrench characterizes as a "bright, punchy red."

Flushed Blush

For a while now, blush has been in style, and the largest blush trend saw on the New York catwalk was undoubtedly a flushed, natural blush. The models' appearance suggested that they had slept in before they woke up, got dressed, and headed directly to the runway. 

The artists achieved a unified and organic effect by utilizing the brand's recently released Halo Sculpt + Glow Face Palette ($45). To get that look, apply a little layer over the nasal bridge and cheeks to give the appearance of freshly put on makeup.

Hair Ornaments

This season of New York Fashion Week F/W 2024 has begun with inventive methods to beautify the hairstyles, in contrast to the previous season which featured laced hairstyles.

Christian Siriano's show featured the 'celestial box bun' hairstyle, which topped the square updo with gold flakes, and this has become a popular look on the catwalk. This whimsical, futuristic hairstyle has a metallic appearance thanks to the gold leaf accents on the bun's top.

Cloud Blush

It was just a matter of time until blush embraced the cloud skin style, which has been around for a while. Similar to foundation makeup, our current focus is on honing a blush technique that will make us seem as radiant as the models on the runways of Luar and Gabriella Hearst.

Spider Lashes

Spider lashes have been seen on the catwalk quite a bit recently (see Prada's Spring/Summer 2023 show), but Marc Jacobs has elevated the standard this season by showcasing enormous, dramatic lashes on his Fall 2024 runway, thereby kicking off what is anticipated to be a very beauty-focused Fashion Month. 

To get the thick, spiky look of spider legs, apply many coats of mascara to both your top and bottom lashes.

Wet & Wild Hair

Naturally damp and effortlessly smooth hair was another trend seen on the NYFW show. "Wet and wild" hairstyles were undoubtedly popular throughout presentations, ranging from easy, middle-parted, and slicked-down styles that appeared like they just got out of the shower to more daring looks like the Prabal Gurung show. 

The smooth and slept-in appearance was achieved using Wella Professionals Ultimate Repair Miracle Hair Rescue.

Hair Tattoos

This one was Collina Strada's interpretation of hair decor involving ultra-cool hair tattoos. To create them, global artistic ambassador Evanie Frausto inserted small-sized hair ribbons, which he saturated with hair gel. 

He then gave the Collina Strada star shape to each one on a single hair side of their head, with a fairy wing on the other side. Later, this entire hair tattoo was placed and layered using hair-holding spray.
