All the beauty trends dominating catwalks during fashion month

While it may seem strange to focus on autumn/ winter 2022 when spring is yet to arrive, the beauty trends emerging from Fashion Week are proving impossible to resist. It’s still early on during fashion month, but New York has already delivered some serious makeup escapism, from futuristic ‘meta’ blue eyeshadow and lipgloss, surprisingly wearable graphic liner, lust-worthy updos and some more experimental, yet nonetheless magnificent, makeup creations (think full face glitter and XXL, textured lashes).

As London Fashion Week rounds up, we’ve seen stunning gem-stone adorned eyes at Paul Costelloe and Simone Rocha, as well as striking glamour at Matty Bovan, with punchy coloured wigs by colourist Josh Wood, and strong, ‘straight-liner’ on models’ eyes by makeup artist Thom Walker backstage at Molly Goddard.

Last week, makeup mogul Pat McGrath wowed with an array of fantastical floral-inspired makeup moments backstage at Shayne Oliver. The “human bouquets” saw models’ eyes adorned with petals and lashes loaded with pollen across an entire spectrum of pigments, while skin was kept simple yet stunning.

To create the look, Pat’s team used Pat McGrath Lab’s Skin Fetish Foundation and Skin Fetish Highlighter + Balm Duo, a backstage beauty staple that created  a flawless base for the artistic bouquets. To finish, the team used bold shades from the Mothership I: Subliminal Palette.

Then there was the meta blue moments that saw a new futuristic interpretation of the classic 60s shade. At Dauphinette, models wore shimmery greeny blue gloss on lips and over at Kim Shui, models stepped out on the runway with ethereal frosty blue eyeshadow blended up towards the brows. 

Hair has been equally inspiring thanks to the dual-texture ponytails at Sergio Hudson (the crown super slicked back and high shine, with the pony tail cascading out in fluffed-out curls) and the grungy, side-swept, wet-look lengths at Altuzarra.
