New York Fashion Week Spring 2014 beauty trends

New York Fashion Week (NYFW) is in full swing with designers showcasing their wares (see-through coats! colour-blocked skirts! tribal maxi dresses!) on the runways of North America’s most stylish city. Though there are still a few days left for street-style stars to pose on the sidewalk and models to sashay down the catwalk, we’re already starting to notice some trends for spring. Next season, try adding a few of these pretty looks into your day-to-day repertoire:

1. Orange makeup

On lips, cheeks and nails, orange is a juicy and modern way to add a pop of colour. Even try the hot hue simultaneously on lips and cheeks, as seen at DKNY.

2. Grungy, wet-looking hair

The undone, sloppy look still isn’t going away. Why? It adds the perfect amount of edge. Spritz roots with lift spray before blow-drying with a round brush and encourage volume by teasing. To get the wet effect, slick the sides – and top, if you’re daring! – with styling cream, serum or oil.

3. Bare/neutral nails

Fun hues and creative nail art are still huge for spring, but a sheer or neutral polish will elongate fingers and won’t detract from a vibrant outfit. Go one shade lighter or darker than your skin tone.

4. White eye makeup

Whether in shadow or liner form, white near the eyes will brighten and draw attention to those peepers. If you’re wary, add just a touch at the inner corners.
