Beauty Flash: 3 Spring Trends to Try Now!

New York Fashion Week is just the beginning. Now that we’ve seen the latest trends to come down the runway, it’s up to you take these looks and make them all your own. And just what are the hottest beauty trends this season? Take a look at these 3 fashion forwards looks you’ll absolutely want to try now!
Bold Brows At Fashion Week we saw plenty of brows that were filled in or painted black, but our favorite furrow was one that arched in a modern way. At Thakoon, Diane Kendal referenced '20s-era vintage images to create an entirely updated look. "While there was something very fragile about them, the eyes were deep," she said. Kendal used a NARS eyebrow pencil to draw on an exaggeratedly long and thin curve above the natural brow.

But Rodarte managed to embrace both aesthetics with its beige crisscrossed creation that nail artist Michele Huynh described as "modern medieval" tips. Huynh put the look together by first blending three matte nude hues and painting the custom color onto a sheet of wax paper. After letting it dry overnight, she peeled the polish off and cut it into strips. She then weaved the strips onto the base of the nail, which was already coated with a combination of two sandy polishes. The total of 30 sets of nails took over 150 hours to create, and then it took 15 minutes to dress each nail on the models' hands. Beauty Essential: Essie Nail Polish in Mamba
Flawless Red Lips Attaining perfection doesn't come easy. It took makeup artist Diane Kendal a whopping five steps to get that immaculate cherry red pout. She began by coating the entire mouth with a scarlet lip pencil and outlining it with a wine pencil. She next added a coat of pink lipstick, which she followed with a magenta lip color and a neon orange pigment just in the center for a gradient effect. Beauty Essential: MAC Lipstick in Russian Red
