Best Beauty Looks From New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2023

Without a doubt, fashion’s greatest accessory is a glamorous beauty look.

There’s no denying that when New York Fashion Week rolls around that statement couldn’t be more true. Between the Alice + Oliva, Christian Siriano and Tommy Hilfiger shows (among many, many others), the spring/summer 2023 collections have ushered in a new era of beauty trends.

We’re talking huge clear beads adorning braided hairstyles, which created the illusion of bubble crowns, neon-colored wigs that showcased individuality and bright eyeshadows in electrifying shades of red-orange, pink and indigo.

Plus, designers like Jason Wu proved that simplicity in the glam department doesn’t equal boring. In fact, his show featured models with effortless bobs and buns that made a powerful statement, especially when paired with the right outfits.

It’s safe to say that everything from the hair and makeup to the nails brought NYFW’s collections to life, making the beauty looks just as swoon-worthy as the pieces displayed on the runways.

This Budget Beauty Line Is Your Ticket To Effortless Wedding MakeUp

“We all need a bit of magic in our lives – especially now – don’t we?” says Val Garland, global makeup artist for L’Oréal Paris, of the brand’s latest collaboration with Elie Saab. And magical it is. The designer known for his frothy, feminine, haute couture creations – seen on everyone from brides to A-listers – has brought his talent for making women feel and look good to the ultra affordable L’Oréal Paris x Elie Saab collection, which is available to buy now.

Welcome to Artist Spotlight #52 series on my blog.

Empowering women is, after all, Saab’s MO. “My passion has always been to make women feel beautiful, and makeup has the ability to highlight every woman’s natural beauty. As the finishing touch to a look, or an accessible way into the world of couture, this makeup line allows every woman to experience a touch of Elie Saab magic,” he says.

Garland, who has worked with the designer on the makeup looks for his fashion shows in days gone by, collaborated with Saab on the line. The pair wanted to create a range which reflected his “dazzling hand-sewn embroideries and embellishments and his signature fantasy creations”, explains Garland. “I wanted to translate his vision with makeup, by incorporating subtle shimmer finishes in the gloss and dazzling glitters in the eyeshadows, to truly reflect his designs.”

The result is a four-piece line that incorporates a rather glorious eyeshadow palette, full of velveteen, shimmery shades in tones to suit everyone; Le Volume Haute Couture Mascara; a feather-soft Le Brilliant Haute Couture lip gloss (in three nudes); and Color Riche lipstick (in four exclusive shades). The edit is affordable but the luxurious formulas feel reassuringly expensive, and the packaging is also pleasing. The feather details, sheer nude chiffon and silver embellishment from the brand’s last show are all echoed in the formulas.

£15.99, available at Lookfantastic.com.

Because the collection is based on nude hues, it’s perfect for those who like a natural touch, and it’s bound to appeal to future brides. Whether it’s a slick of the gloss on lips or a diffused, taupe eye, it’s soft, flattering makeup that’s easy to incorporate into your routine. And at less than £20, it’s truly a steal.
