As we jump from summer into autumn, it’s time to take a closer look at the makeup trends that graced the AW23 catwalks. From bold lips to goth-inspired eyes, here are the top four makeup trends that will be dominating the beauty world this season, plus a bonus hair trend, too! Remember when it comes to tapping into catwalk trends that the catwalk take is dialled up for maximum impact, so pare it back or take elements from the looks to make them work in the real world.
AW23 Makeup Trends To Try Now
Goth-inspired makeup was a standout trend on the AW23 runways, with designers like Rodarte, Versace, and Anna Sui opting for bold, dark looks to accompany their new season collections. The makeup featured exaggerated winged eyeliner, larger-than-life lashes, and crystalized red lips. The look is being dubbed as ‘goth fairy’ by Allure. This trend was also seen in Paris, where goth-girl liner made a comeback as a standout look.
Deep, rich red lips were a popular trend on the AW23 runways, with designers like Schiaparelli showcasing beautiful deep red lips and Balenciaga’s models showcasing deep plum wet-look lips for a high-fashion shine.
Long, feathery lashes were an eye-catching trend on the AW23 runways, with Prada showcasing pastel, feathery lashes and Sergio Hudson showing fluttering long lengths. These were taken to the extreme at Chet Lo, too, with statement lower lashes.
Graphic liner remains a popular trend for AW23, with designers like Valentino showcasing bold, graphic liner looks. Bold, graphic eyes are fun for party season, but a feline flick works well for everyday wear this season.
Hair: Go Dishevelled
This season, dishevelled hair took centre stage, with designers like Chanel and Miu Miu (hair by Guido) showcasing artfully messy manes and backcombed locks. The messy bedhead hair trend was also seen in Paris. For a more statement AW23 hair trend, try the wet-look locks at Balenciaga.
