Jeremy Scott

 

According to Jeremy Scott, if you’re going to cry, your tears might as well be gold.

 

 

Prabal Gurung 

 

Who says eyeliner can only be drawn on your lash lines? At Prabal Gurung runway makeup legend Diane Kendal applied bold strokes of technicolour eyeliner above the lids.

 

 

Christian Soriano

 

There were even more tears at fashion week on the Christian Soriano runway. This time, with a copy heavy metal effect.

 

 

The Blonds 

 

Inspired by the upcoming film The Mummy, the hair at The Blonds mimicked strips of fabric that were used in ancient Egypt to mummify the deceased.

 

 

Tadashi Shoji

 

Glitter lips may be NSFW, but if you love to sparkle and are brave tough, a swipe of glitter on your lower lash line is a solid alternative.

 

 

Chromat

 

Emerging from a dip in the pool has never looked so badass thanks to the wet look hair, smudgy cobalt-winged eyeliner, and the face jewellery at Chromat.

 

 

Adam Selman

 

Usually a haphazard top knot is our go-to look for chilling with a glass of wine, but if you’re a model in the Adam Selman show, the look is runway-appropriate.

 

 

Eckhaus Latta

 

The paint-splattered faces at Eckhaus Latta wouldn’t look out of place hanging at an art gallery next to a Jackson Pollock piece.

 

 

Vfiles

 

If you have the skills to master a cat eye, you’re ready to move on to a negative space liner look as seen at VFiles.

 

 

Thom Browne

 

Thanks to strips of woven fabric, Thom Browne’s show gave a whole new meaning to bold brows and lips.

 

 

Anna Sui

 

The makeup at Anna Sui was so wrong it’s right. Although makeup rules dictate wearing a bold eye or lip, makeup legend Pat McGrath gave the models both a cerulean smoky eye and a crimson lip. We guess some rules are meant to be broken.
