New York Fashion Week is coming to a close! Today’s the final day of fashion running the city, and designers put forth their visions for the spring of 2017. There were some trends, like intense nostalgia for the 70s and 80s, but today we’ll focus on the beauty looks we loved! Take a look at what we noted this season, so you can be on the beauty cutting edge.
Tom Ford's Autumn/Winter 2016, kind of a big deal since most collections at fashion week are for the spring season. Tom Ford, in a kinda game changing move, goes for the see now buy now model. Since the collection is for the colder months, it features some great geometric fur jackets, and almost metallic takes on warm colors you'd see from falling autumn leaves. Loose silhouettes paired with dynamic, long pencil skirts give the collection variety.

Dewy and minimal makeup. To get that look use either liquid foundation with a good highlighter or find yourself some tinted moisturizer. Works wonders! Also a good way to emulate Tom Ford's metallic clothing is with warm-toned metallic polishes.
Cushnie Et Ochs
The fashion duo Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs (making Cushnie Et Ochs, get it?) build their brand on clothes that are luxurious, yet understated and are crafted to celebrate the female body. Their Spring 2017 collection features color blocking in tans, black, and white, in a variety of jumpsuits and dresses. The usage of geometric cut-outs give their pieces unique silhouettes.

Cushnie Et Ochs self describe their beauty looks as inspired by Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface. Think pouty bold lips and a light smokey eye. To get the lip look, use a red lipstick on your top lip and a lighter shade on the bottom. The two-toned lip gives subtle dimension and drama.
Tom Ford isn't the only one with an Autumn/Winter 2016 collection. Tommy Hilfiger's showing was everything you'd expect from the brand (think nautical, punchy red/white/navy blue, comfy sweaters, over-sized sweatshirts) enlivened by the show's spectacular setting on a carnival pier. It was also a star-studded event, with Gigi Hadid as the flagship model, supported from the sidelines by Taylor Swift and here ever present squad.
Get the Beauty Look
Think California girl that makes it look like she doesn't try to hard, but there's definitely some effort made. Sun-kissed skin, slightly tinted glossy lips, and of course a good beachy wave.
Jeremy Scott's Spring/Summer 2017 collection was full of love for the eighties, with colors so bright you might need shades. Pop-culture influenced, the dresses, swim suits, shirts, and skirts featured punchy prints (I personally loved the toothpaste print because, why not) and text proclaiming "Hot Hot Hot" and "X Rated." The collection on the whole communicated a rambunctious night out, and who doesn't love that for fashion week?

We love Jeremy Scott's play with pop culture and iconography. This slime outfit with orange makeup screams Nickelodeon, which is pretty great. Emulate the look with pops of neon eye shadow that contrast you outfit.
Another fashion duo, John Targon and Scott Studenberg make up the New York based Baja East. Their Spring/Summer 2017 collection featured elements the brand in known for (animal and psychedelic prints) in the form of loose fitting lounge wear. The kind of sock/sandal pairing you'd expect an athlete to wear added a comfortable vibe to the collection, which ran the line of grunge meets athletic.
Get the Beauty Look
Hello Axel Rose. The Baja East styling really went for the grunge look with greased out eyes, wet slick hair, topped off with a variety of bandannas. We loved the matte black hombre nails this model's sporting, that add a great texture to her look.

A professional manicure is one of those luxuries—necessities(?) that we love to indulge in. But when time and money doesn’t allow for a visit to the salon, you can make your own nails look picture perfect with a French manicure.
This clean, classic look is perfect for day or night and any season. It even looks great on toes. To do a true French Manicure, two colors are used, a translucent base color, usually pink or peach and a solid, opaque white or off-white. First, the translucent base is applied to the nails, then the white is applied, but only to the tips.
OPI currently inspired by sights and sounds New Orleans with some great colors that can add some Creole flavor to your typical French manicure. You can check out the whole collection here, but we recommend Let Me Bayou a Drink, Humidi-Tea, or Crawfishin’ for a Compliment for more vibrant look. Generally you want to choose a shade close to your skin tone, either cool or warm for the most natural looking manicure. A very popular color combination is Ballet Slippers & Blanc by Essie.
If you want to try something a little different. Feel free to substitute two different, more contrasting colors (for example, red for the base and gold for the tips). Or stick to the classic colors, we recommend Zoya Naturel Nail Polish Collection with a variety of neutral shades. Or go crazy with an opal or glitter top coat for a new twist. The possibilities are endless.
The French Manicure works best for nails between 1/4 to 3/4 inches long. When deciding on a nail shape, it's always best to go with one which will enhance the shape of your fingers. For example, you can make the fingers of petite hands look longer and more graceful by having almond shaped nails.
A French Manicure can be performed in one of two ways - either freehand or by using a stencil as a guide. If you are using a stencil, the hardest part is lining up the nail guides evenly and then making sure they stay on straight while you're painting the tips white.
If you are doing things freehand, make sure you have a sure, steady eye when painting the tips of your nails. Otherwise, your tips will be of varying sizes when they are done, and your nails won't look so very très chic at all! Remember practice makes perfect! Don't get frustrated if it isn't perfect. No one will scrutinize your nails. A polish corrector pen, makes clean up a lot easier!
