If you follow the fashion world closely, you know that there are certain standards that everyone has to meet. Age, weight, height are things that the industry judges and faces scrutiny for. This is likely the reason why many of us have insecurities in how we look. But at the New York Fashion Week Spring 2018 Michael Kors show, the designer taught incredible beauty lessons.
5 Beauty Lessons from Michael Kors’ Spring 2018 NYFW Show
We’re still far from summer, but the show was all about the warm sun on and off the runway. The good news is, the beauty lessons from the show can work for a lifetime.
Age Is Nothing but a Number
What do Carolyn Murphy, Maggie Rizer, and Kirsty Hume have in common? All 3 models are over 35 years old, respectively at 43, 39, and 41. The trio shows that their beauty and grace ages just like fine wine. We can owe it up to their experience of walking many runways in their careers.
There Is No One Size Fits All
Michael Kors made his show relatable to real-world people, including a roster of models with different body types. Plus-sized models Ashley Graham and Sabina Karlsson walked the same runway as bombshell Kate Upton. It’s all about inclusivity!
The New Blow Out Do
Though the models didn’t go on until 10AM, hairstylist Orlando Pita did their hair the night before. The textured hairstyles we saw on the show was because he had the girls sleep with wet hair. So that’s one of the beauty lessons you can take away to get beach-ready hairstyles.
Take a Vacation
You may find it weird that this is one of the beauty lessons you can pick up on the show. But with an island getaway as the catwalk’s theme, how can you not? The cast just came off vacations prior to coming in for fittings. So instead of bronzer, it’s all about the natural glow.
The Only Makeup Product Needed Is Concealer
You all probably have a list of must-have makeup products, but the Michael Kors show was about “untouched” complexions. Makeup artist Dick Page took that directive and gave everyone a bare makeup look. If there are any blemishes or redness, light coverage is enough. Otherwise, leave the face alone.
Beauty Lessons in the Fashion and Beauty Industry
Inclusivity seems to be the beauty lesson that many designers and creative directors want to teach everyone. With the launch of Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty makeup line and the runway for Michael Kors Spring 2018 collection, perhaps more people can gain confidence in how they look.
