NYFW Spring/Summer 2024: The Best Beauty Looks

New York Fashion Week is the best time of the year. There’s incredible fashion gracing runways and inimitable street style. Perhaps the best aspect of the week however, is that designers, creatives, and industry leaders begin to lay the groundwork for an entire year of trends—and that includes beauty. Renowned hair stylists, makeup artists, and nail artists collaborate with fashion designers to create works of beauty art ranging from sculptural updos to graphic nail designs. These looks make their grand debut on the runway, but hours before their global debut, you can find the Marie Claire beauty team immersed in the backstage chaos—scoping out the products on scene and getting how-to-get-the-look tips from the pros responsible for the glam. 

While the week is nearing a close (only one and a half days to go), it’s safe to say the beauty is strong this go-round. A very ‘90s-esque return to chocolate brown lipstick brought buzz to Rachel Comey’s runway. Then, micro French manicures proved their staying power at Kate Spade. To see these looks and many more, plus a peak into what goes down behind the scenes, keep reading. The geniuses responsible for this year’s beauty looks are sharing their go-to products, backstage secrets, and pro-tips, ahead.

Season after season, parred-back glam reigns supreme on the runways—and the Philip Lim show was no exception. For the model’s makeup, the designed teamed up with Into You Official, a brand that is which is highly popular in Japan, China, Taiwan, and Malaysia. “In America, after Covid, there was a lot of hate toward Asian Americans. We hope that through makeup we can help people not only help express their own selves, but also show that Asian beauty can be a part of the entire community,” the brand’s founder Minnie Ma exclusively told Marie Claire. The makeup team used the brand’s multi-purpose lip products to create subtle monochromatic looks, carrying a uniform color across the models eyes, cheeks, and lips.
