New York Fashion Week isn’t just all about fashion—the quarterly affair also highlights the latest makeup trends. We asked celebrity makeup artist and Maybelline Fashion Week 2017 Correspondent Jigs Mayuga about the best beauty looks that stood out backstage, and how we can pull them off:
A strong brow game that lasts
And by “strong,” we don’t mean obviously drawn-on brows with squared-off edges. It’s all about making it seem like you wake up every day with amazing brows! Get the look—and keep it for three days!—with the Maybelline Fashion Brow Tattoo Gel Tint. All you have to do is apply the gel tint, let it set for 20 minutes up to two hours, and peel it off. Et voilá: brows on fleek!
Your lips, but better
If you still haven’t hopped on the nude lippie wagon, take this as a sign to do so! MLBB (my lips, but better) shades are a staple in NYFW, and the trend is perfect for tamad girls who just can’t be bothered to apply a lip liner. Try the Maybelline Color Sensational Inti-Matte Nudes in Almond Pink, which keeps your lips hydrated while providing it with a smooth, lightweight matte finish.
The beauty world’s obsession with highlighters isn’t dying anytime soon, and for good reason: Applying a decent amount on certain areas of your face can give your skin a healthy and natural glow. Swipe on the Maybelline Master Strobing Stick on each of the points listed in this guide. Don’t forget to blend afterward!
Matte, not dewy
A matte, shine-free base will always be in, especially in our humid weather. To achieve the look, it’s important to choose a formula that still looks like skin. Try a matte foundation with a blendable formula like Maybelline Fit Me! Matte+Poreless Liquid Foundation for a polished finish. It comes in 10 shades, so you're bound to find the right base to suit your skin tone.
The wing effect
We’re talking about long, flared, and flirty lashes that make your eyes the center of attention. Use the Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara, which sweeps lashes to the side while lifting and pumping from the roots for maximum volume. Tip: Hold a business card against your eyelids while applying mascara to avoid product transfer!
