Runway Beauty and Makeup from New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2016 NYFW MBFW FW16

While the fashion is the main focus of Fashion Week, regardless of the season or locale, when the makeup catches our eye you know it’s interesting, over the top, uniquely original, or done beautifully.  It can also be that it either compliments, or more likely, draws away from the clothing, the later of which is not the goal.  I found a few runway beauty looks so striking I had to snap a quick photo.  It hasn’t been since Chanel, or the old Galliano  shows- those theatrical over the top high concept makeup looks, that I’ve really sat back and noted the beauty of a fashion show.

What shows caught your eye for their beauty?

Bibhu Mohapatra

Graphic red and black cat eyes paired with gold brows


The  lustrous silver liner on the lower lid and inner corner was very striking.


Tadashi Shoji

Bronzed lid smokey eyed, contoured, and nude faced with just a touch of pink on the lips.  It was a very Glam Rock look.
