Trying to find new content for the ‘gram? Well, we have just the thing you need. We’ve compiled the best high-fashion beauty looks from all across the globe — we’re talking London, Paris, Milan! These are some of the best looks that made their debut on the runways back in Feb 2020 but due to the lockdown, these looks didn’t get the appreciation they deserved. Even though they are a couple of months old, it doesn’t mean that they are now outdated. This list consists of beauty looks that have a long shelf-life and might even just make a comeback in the seasons ahead.
So, grab your makeup kit and get your hairpins and hair sprays out, we’ve combed through the internet and picked 5 playful and dramatic beauty looks of A/W20 which you can recreate at home. And don’t worry, they are all Insta-worthy.
Paris Fashion Week has announced that it will be returning IRL for Autumn/Winter and these 5 beauty looks might just steal the show once again.
The resurgence of old trends is not something new. We’ve seen it happen before — styles from the ‘70s, ’80s and even ‘90s, taking over the 21st-century runways and now, retro hair happens to be one of them. Those who are familiar with movies like The Great Gatsby, or even obsessed with Elizabeth Taylor’s big wavy curls, then this old school hairdo is something you need to try. Models at the A/W20 Miu Miu fashion show in Paris walked the runway with their side partings neatly set and shaped into waves. This hairstyle screams old Hollywood glam and it is a great look to recreate if you want all eyes on you.
While the classic black cat-eye makeup will never go out of style, fashion designers added their own touch to this makeup look by using a whole lot of metallics and glitter. If you’re all for drama, edgy or just love being a little extra, Pat McGrath’s futuristic take at the Prada show is just for you. Instead of the classic wing, this makeup artist added a block of metallic shadow just above the eye socket, which went from the inner corners of the eyes, extending out towards the ends.
Not that the classic red lip ever went out of style, but this year, designers like Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, Givenchy and Marc Jacobs, all opted for various shades of red in different textures on the catwalks.
Lucky for you, the options for red lipsticks in the market are endless. Mattes, glosses, shimmer, creams… there’s something for everyone.
It seems like the Kardashian reign has finally ended. No offence to Kim K but heavy contour has officially become a thing of the past, and now, subtle softer contours are taking over the beauty world. At the A/W20 Michael Kors show, it was all about using subtle hues, creamy peach blush and bronze shadings to add a bit of definition to the face. Unlike heavy contouring, this is easy to recreate and perfect for when you have those emergency Zoom calls.
How To Subtly Contour and Highlight Your Face
Step 1: Swirl your fluffy contour brush in a matte bronzer like the POSE HD Duo Bronzer by MyGlamm, tap off the excess product and sweep the brush over your temples and bring it down, right beneath your cheekbones; this will create a C shape. Make sure to blend it out well to avoid harsh lines.
Step 2: Use a cream highlighter and lightly dab a bit on the tops of your cheekbones and blend it well to add more definition to your face and get that lit-from-within-glow.
Fragmented foils were a hit at the Feb 2020 fashion shows and now with face masks being made mandatory, what better way to turn heads than with foil-covered lids. This isn’t for the faint of heart though! This statement-making trend is all about applying broken-up metallic textures in different colours across your eyelids or on any part of the face. If you are planning on partaking in the #VogueChallenge, this eye makeup look is definitely a must-try.
