How: While matte lips were ruling the ramps for sometime now, the return of the fun and flirty lip gloss has us cheering. Models sporting good, old-fashioned lip gloss made for high-shine pouts at Rag & Bone, Rodarte, Fendi and Roland Mouret, venturing onto the brows at Christopher Kane, the lids at Nina Ricci and even the cheeks at David Koma.


What: Rich Flush


How: The runways had a sophisticated take on beauty; rather than zoning in on one feature, we saw perfected skin, lightly flushed cheeks and subtle shading combined to create a rich, groomed look at shows for Donna Karan, Herve Leger, Bottega Veneta and Prada.


What: Go Graphic


How: Eye liners take a bold stand as they move away from the classics to a more defined form. From feather-y scribble marks at Fendi to the half stars at Anthony Vaccarello and the double winged lines at Mugler, there are magical new ways to rim your eyes.


What: Metallic Eyelids


How: A fan of the 80’s? This is definitely for you. Bring out the disco star in you with sparkling eyelids. Shimmer has been given a whole new meaning at Rodarte, Zac Posen and Temperley London. Take your pick from silver eyelids or embellished sequined beads on your lower lash line.


What: Up High

How: Ditch limp and loose waves for some glamorous up-dos this festive season. Take a cue from the elegant chignons at Oscar de la Renta and ribbon-tied French twists at Chanel. Want to sparkle? Pin your hair up with bejeweled clips as seen on Guido Palau’s topknot ponytails in place at Prada.
