NYFW Spring 2014 beauty trend round-up

Opening Fashion Week month last week, all eyes have been on New York City to see the hot new hair and make-up styles we will be coveting come springtime – and the looks that are carrying on from the current Autumn Winter season.

With a big collective of traditional fashion houses and edgy, younger designers showing in the city that never sleeps, the US metropolis has always had a huge influence over the rest of the world.

Perhaps the biggest trend to come out of the Big Apple this September is the wet hair look – and we at herworldPLUS.com were one of the first to call it big for Spring next year.

Read our take on this reinvented 90s look, and get our tips on recreating this sexy, slick hairstyle for yourself.

The wet hair look ties in perfectly with the ever-growing grunge influences in fashion. At New York Fashion Week, Phillip Lim (pictured above), Prabal Gurung, Helmut Lang and Jason Wu all created their own take on the look, varying from centre-parted, low-slung ponytails with wet roots to a fierce comb-over fringe dividing locks that had been drenched almost down to the ends.

The single make-up product you do not want to miss next spring is a matte, bold lipstick. From tangerine to coral and neon orange hues, eye-popping lips will be back next year.

We adore this easy way of pepping up your face – read our beauty trend report and get pointers on which bright orange shade is right for your complexion. 

Light pastel eyeshadow also featured at the NYFW presentations of Altuzarra, Derek Lam and Phillip Lim, while lashes were kept either bare or coated with only a smidgen of natural looking mascara.

Again, this lovely trend is great for all manner of experimentation read on to see why we think pastel eyeshadows are great for Spring, and follow these easy steps to nail this feminine look without coming off as saccharine sweet. 

Finally, flawless, dewy skin was another big trend that continues on from Autumn Winter and was spotted at Alexander Wang, Derek Lam and Rag & Bone with varying degrees of dewiness.

We’re already seeing big names like Paul Smith coming up with their own versions of the barefaced look at London Fashion Week. Read our beauty report for a complete eye-to-lips guide on recreating this youthful, luminous look.
