As a self-defined beauty beginner, I can't help but be in awe of all the wild beauty moments from the NYFW SS19 runway.
This year, all rules went out the window. Remember when blue eyeshadow was a big no-no? That's a thing of the past. The thick eyeliner of your scene-phase has gotten its chic revitalization too. Glitter? Put it everywhere. Lids, nails, you name it. Plant life made its way into NYFW on the heads of plenty models as well, whether it was in the form of gorgeous floral blooms or leafy green extensions.
Click through the gallery below to see all of our favorite beauty moments from the shows of NYFW SS19.
The lip art at Lanyu seriously belongs in the Louvre. I'm not sure I'll ever be able to recreate this look, but a girl can dream.
The overdrawn glitter cat eyes by M.A.C. at Tadashi Shoji are not a look you want to try out if you're keeping a low profile, but it's perfect for a night out.
Not your mother's blue eyeshadow! Di$count Universe models all rocked super bold colors using Maybelline products, including these clean-cut turquoise lids and cherry-red lips.
Suddenly my poor self-care habits are trendy, and I feel like an entirely new person. Instead of attempting to salvage day-six-no-wash hair with another pound of dry shampoo, just crimp the ends to achieve this fly-away look we saw on the Matthew Adams Dolan runway.
At the Flying Solo X NYLON runway show, we learned how to channel our inner Zenon with a full-on silver highlight, but then brought it back down to earth with bronze mascara on the lower lashes.
Christian Cowan is making goth cool again with these matte black lips by M.A.C. (JK, goth never went out of style, but these lips are still killer).
I'm going to need a tutorial from Bumble and bumble on how to get these adorable little daisies from the Mansur Gavriel show to stay in my hair the same way.
In case the daisies were too subtle for your taste, how about these massive buds at Rodarte sculpted with TRESemmé? We're loving the crayon bright hues appearing on lids all over NYFW, and these yellow ones by NARS are to die for.
The looks at Opening Ceremony were varied, given the drag inspo brought along by Sasha Velour. There are so many things to love in this look. Neon star glitter? Check. A bit of ultraviolet on the lips to balance the sunset hues elsewhere? Also check. Thanks, Maybelline.
Like the rosy sunset hues we saw before, but easier to wear day-to-day. We're loving this sherbet-esque glow from Anna Sui using Pat McGrath products, as well as the full on unicorn placement for a top knot by R+Co.
The orange-highlighter eyeliner at Zero + Maria Cornejo was such a simple addition to elevate a relatively barefaced look.
Sally Lapointe models prove that it is possible to look chic after just hopping out of the shower, all you need is a good dose of TRESemmé products to keep it looking sleek. I've just been doing it wrong all these years.
Next time you mess up your eyeliner, instead of grabbing a makeup wipe, just lean into the curve and go for an impressionist vibe like the models on the Coach runway did.
Alice & Olivia fulfilled all our rainbow makeup fantasies with teal lids by Maybelline, as well as bright orange lips on other models. Not shown? Some killer neon hair streaks and nails to match.
You know when you try to go in the pool at a party and not mess up your fresh blowout, but the ends just seem to desperately want to go for a dip? That's the vibe we were getting at the Calvin Klein runway.
Can't wait to rock a lip-liner "666" next time I visit my conservative hometown! Semir x CJ YAO brought pop art to life with bright dots and unique writing on each model's face.
Jumbo clips that are made to be worn outside of the salon chair were the name of the game at Marcel Ostertag.
If you told me before NYFW started that Marc Jacobs would be filling the runway with pastels and beehive hair, I probably would have thought you were lying. But here we are, and it's absolutely magnificent.
Remember when we were all scrambling to get to the salon and have feathers put in our hair? No? Well the plant-life hair accessories that debuted at Gypsy Sport by Bumble and bumble are a lot cooler than those ever were.
Jeremy Scott hit all the right notes with the rose gold foil lips, and true blue outlined nails by Essie.
Libertine brought nail art to an entirely new level. CND tied into the scene-phase eyeliner look by adding linkage to the nails that is definitely reminiscent of our old chain wallet days.
Of all the gorgeous things that went down at the Chromat show, I can't stop thinking about the shades of periwinkle on the model's lids. Also, can we talk about their incredible dewy glow? Goals. Oribe Hair is behind the incredible wet look, and pierced nails courtesy of Lady Fancy Nails.
