"The beauty look at Cushnie et Ochs is probably my favorite for how classic and versatile it is. A strong red lip, a bare face, light contouring and bold brows are the perfect set up for practically any occasion. But not only is the look appropriate for any event, it also works across all different skin tones and features as demonstrated by the diversity of models on this show’s runway. I’m particularly drawn to this Asian model’s look—especially the long, luscious black hair that looks so healthy and effortless."

“Although I could never probably replicate the look, the silver metallic cat’s-eye that was done by Sarah Lucero for Stila Cosmetics and shown at the Nicholas K show, plays off the current trend of metallic shadow and keeps all the attention on the eyes. To do it yourself, apply Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow in Titanium along your top and bottom lash lines, just as if you were doing a cat’s-eye, for an exaggerated and unexpected look."

"The beauty look at the Zimmerman show was modern and feminine and I love the contrast on the eye by using dark shadow on the lower lash line and metallic shadow on the inner corners. Plus, that strong brow paired with a muted lip. Ooh la la. Makeup artist Jodie Boland for Maybelline New York wanted the look to be very natural, with little to no makeup, giving the models just a bit of an edge by playing with gray shades along the lash line, specifically Maybelline New York Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayon in Charcoal Chrome."

"With the nail art trend slowly falling to the wayside, it’s refreshing to see the simplicity of nude nails—as seen in Self-Portrait’s Spring 2017 show—taking center stage once again. To create the matte, neutral nail, essie’s Rita Remark combined essie’s sheer 'au natural' for just a hint of shimmer and sheen and added texture with the 'matte about you' topcoat. The result? Sexy, sophisticated fingertips that match your entire closet all season long."

"I love how fresh and effortless this peachy-coral look from Ulla Johnson is. It just looks healthy and radiant and seems like something you could actually do at home with only a few minutes to spare. Romy Soleimani used Weleda products and her secret trick is to apply the brand’s Skin Food to the eyes to create glossy shine. Romy said, 'This is my all-time favorite product—and truly is a staple on site. You can use Skin Food in a million different ways. My favorite way is to add a highlight to the cheekbones by gently pressing in the cream. [For this look], we used it to create the eye look, but I’ve used it in so many different ways.' Seriously, if one product can give that kind of look, I’m stockpiling."
