Bye Bye Boring Makeup! Euphoria Inspired Beauty Transforms the NYFW Runways


New York Fashion Week sets the stage for the season’s upcoming clothing trends. However, beauty inspiration can also be found on the runway and this year the makeup has been anything but dull. The beauty looks from fashion week have been inspired from the popular show Euphoria. The show is known for its experimental beauty looks which have translated onto the runway through bold colors, designs and jewel details. Different techniques used include vibrant graphic eyeliner, painterly colors and rhinestone details. Whether you want a dramatic look or sweet and simple, draw inspiration from these unique trends for your next look!

Colored Graphic Eyeliner

Chromat is known for using bright, vibrant colors in its designs, so it comes as no surprise that the makeup looks followed this trend. The electric colored, graphic eyeliner seems simple but it creates a unique effect. The eyeliner shapes the eyes with different colors and gave the models a futuristic look on the runway. There are many ways to use colored eyeliner which makes it a great and easy option to mix up your go-to makeup look. From bright hues to neutral tones, there are so many color selections, making the possibilities endless. You can also change up how you wear these graphic eyeliner shapes based on the look you are going for. Wear it in place of your everyday liner for a quick, simple switch up or try shaping your eye in different ways for a bold, dramatic look!

Painted Eyeshadow Effect

The painterly color technique was featured in the Christian Siriano show this year. The painterly effect uses different colors of eyeshadow and blends them together to create a paint stroke look. This definitely caught the eye of many and made a bold statement on the runway with the dramatic use of color. You can modify this technique to best fit your style by changing up the colors and the amount of eyeshadow used. Bright hues add a pop of color while neutrals tend to tone it down. Darker colors can also be a great option to experiment with and put a twist on a smokey eye. Play around with this technique to fit your personality and make a bold statement!

Rhinestone Jewel Details

Area and Pyer Moss drew inspiration from Euphoria by using rhinestone details around the eye for a dramatic look on the runway. Rhinestones may not be what you usually put on for your daily makeup routine but can give you a different type of sparkle than just your everyday shimmer. You can adjust the number and types of jewels to achieve different makeup looks from subtle sparkle to bold bling!
