to decide your next haircut, rouge color or life steps.
We are regularly frightened of the “What do I wear today?” moment. The apparently simple question has exceeded its practical aims, becoming an everyday existential mini-crisis. The truth is, sometimes, the challenge goes way beyond … “What make-up should I do?”, “How should I wear my hair?”. Cause no matter how good the outfit, the beauty look shall always harmonize the big picture.
Of course, we can’t really call them challenges. But, until you go out there and face the real ones, I have prepared the beauty inspiration you need. From New York to Paris, from hair to make-up, today you’ll be wearing the right lip shade and conquer the world!
The Haute Couture Fashion Week has represented, more than ever, a hypnotic, awaited escape from reality. The otherworldly extravaganza shaped a fantastic dimension, in which gowns have the leading roles and make-up looks are playing the music. The beauty moments could easily serve as inspiration for us, the “ordinary mortals”. And whilst you might consider some ‘over the top’, think about adapting them for a night out and steal the show.
RED, THE BLACK OF LIP-COLORS
The ‘red lips on a bare face’ look is alike the masculine blazer on naked skin. Don’t overcomplicate it, all you need along the bold lipstick is a fierce eye gaze. Prepare to make some victims.

This change will reload your face-features, while the eye make-up will gain a different focus. The bleached eyebrows will add modernity, futurism and balance to your look. Don’t be afraid to try it as temporary make-up, no matter your hair color, you can dye them back after a while.

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK
The NYFW beauty looks are presenting an emphasis on natural and fresh. One of the major points of interest was definitely the clear skin texture, with an aim of highlighting self-caring, confidence, relaxation.
THAT BLINDING INNER-GLOW
This can’t be faked. Drink your water, eat your greens, keep up the good vibes and show-off that dewy, healthy glow. You don’t need tons of make -up, your face will parade inner vibrance.

SMOKE AND MIRRORS
Effortlessly smudge the black liner all over, you just need a subtle hint of mascara on top, contour those cheekbones and you are ready to go. Who said doing your evening make-up should take forever? Victoria Beckham shared the inspiration: “This season, the beauty was all about a cool ‘90s girl look”.

THE SLEEK POCAHONTAS
Prabal Gurung was among the most colorful presences at NYFW. His modern Pocahontas traded the loose hair for the sleek, braided ponytail. A simple, yet fierce and chameleonic hairstyle you should keep in mind.
