6 Beauty Trends We Spotted at New York Fashion Week Fall-Winter 2024

Just like that, the New York Fashion Week fall-winter 2024 season has ended. While we’re sad it's over, it did leave us with some exciting beauty trends. This season, especially, we saw some major makeup and hair trends on the runways, and we’re expecting to see people adopt them into their everyday routines soon enough.

While beauty trends fluctuate often these days thanks to social media (particularly TikTok), fashion week brings us tried and true techniques created and perfected by expert makeup and hair artists. Thanks to the quickness that’s required to put on a runway show, they’re also pretty straightforward, so you can easily recreate these looks at home by yourself.

If you’re looking to revamp your routine, scroll on to see the trends we spotted at New York Fashion Week this season.

1. Cloud Blush

Cloud skin has been trending for quite some time now, so it was only a matter of time before blush followed suit. Like the base makeup, we’re now focusing on perfecting a blush routine that makes us look like we’re glowing from within like the models on the Luar and Gabriella Hearst, runways. To get this look at home quickly and conveniently, you might want to try out Patrick Ta’s viral hack.

2. Winging It

Slowly but surely, the 2010s are making a comeback. The surprise appearance of thick, angled eyeliner at NYFW is a prime example. If you’re not so sure about this one, just look to The Blonds and Kimmy.J for some inspiration.

3. Stylized Braids

Plaits were woven for extra impact this season, beginning with the taut French braids at LaPointe. Snaking braid duets came accompanied by confectionary twists at the crown, those furnished with sweetly curled edges. Cornrow crowns and scalloped braids featured at Ulla Johnson, a textural counter to the show’s super-sleek low ponytails. The week ended with Thom Browne’s vertical wire-spiked braids, an ode to Edgar Allan Poe’s poem The Raven.

4. Cropped Cuts

Short hair is a major 2024 trend, and NYFW just gave us a sign to go even shorter. We spotted plenty of cropped cuts on the runways, including Coach and Retrofête’s. It might be time to give your hairstylist a call and make the major cut once and for all.

5. Nude Lips

With there being an emphasis on the eyes and base in recent years, a subtle nude lip offers the perfect balance. It’s the perfect way to make your look feel low-key and effortless. Take inspo from Tory Burch and Tommy Hilfiger to rock a cool nude lip look.

6. Glowing Cheekbones

Whether you’re team matte base or team glowy base, we can all agree on one thing; shining cheekbones. At Tory Burch and Sergio Hudson, you couldn’t miss the highlighter dancing under the lights.

7. Voluminous Blowouts

It seems we’re not ready to let go of blowouts quite yet. The trend, popularized by celebs like Zendaya, is set to be a mainstay in 2024, and NYFW just reaffirmed that. Blowouts were spotted on the runways of Retrofête, Christian Cowan, and more!
