how to take f/w 2019’s runway make-up trends to the street

The runway is a great place to get inspo for your wardrobe or beauty routine, however the looks can often be a bit over the top for day-to-day and require a little paring down. With that in mind, we’ve collaborated with one of Primped make-up artists to identify f/w 2019’s top make-up trends and how you can incorporate them into your daily look.


trend 1: red velvet lips

Dramatic lip lovers rejoice – crimson and merlot tones were spotted on runways ranging from Louis Vuitton to Dolce & Gabanna this season.  Are the classic reds really ever out of style though? This season however, the look is less crisp with the lip line being blurred and softened as opposed to defined with a lip liner.  For a daytime look, opt for a stain or matte colour that can quickly convert into nighttime with a lick of high-gloss.  “Pair with minimalist skin”, suggests our pro, “to make a real statement!”



trend 2: graphic eyes


By now you’ve probably gotten the memo that 60’s-style eyeliner in just about any shade under the sun is in.  If not, don’t worry, there’s still time to rock this trend!“We’re seeing a lot of futuristic themes and metallic accents with a punk edge” says our pro. “For a more understated look, try using a bit of silver or gold liner to accent your usual black line”.  Teddy Girl lashes – a clumpy/textured look - were also spotted on Bella Hadid at Brandon Maxwell.  For a more street-appropriate look, apply mascara, a few individual lashes along the lash line, and top with more mascara. 



trend 3: post-facial skin


The skin-forward movement is here to stay and thank goodness for that because it’s one of our most preferred looks at Primped.  “This trend is less about make-up and more about proper care of your skin using oils, serums, and sheet masks”.  Don’t confuse this with the “glow” though – we’re not referring to the contouring and creamy highlighters of recent years.  This look is all about healthy and radiant skin, naturally.  “For a simple glean, add a small amount of Vaseline to your skin’s high points and keep your lips dewy with a stain or lip oil” says our pro.



trend 4: neutral smokes


The smokey eye returns, but this time classy and understated using muted greys, charcoals, and pinks versus harsh black.  Not an expert at smoky eyes? That’s OK – this look isn’t about perfection! In fact, the more smudged and worn-in looking, the better. “Keep your complexion bare and the rest of your look monochromatic with warmer tones to make the smoky eye really stand out” suggests our pro.  Though not pictured below, you can easily spot this trend on the runway's of Tom Ford and Altuzzara.
