This Was by Far the Most Surprising Beauty Trend From NYFW

Each season, a fresh crop of new and interesting trends comes back around for us to play with. They're exciting and modern or nostalgic and retro, spanning various decades with finishes that are matte, glittery, or holographic, or in the case of many, many seasons of beauty looks, no-makeup makeup. While there's certainly a place for skin to look like skin—and I'm absolutely a proponent for a less-is-more aesthetic—there's something so unbelievably fresh about bold colors making their way back into the forefront.

Such is the case with spring 2019. Maximalism is back, and we couldn't be more onboard. It's surprising, sure, but delightful nonetheless. This means draping, rainbow-colored lids, graphic purple eye looks, pastels everywhere, and bold, metallic lips. Designers taking part in the trend include Brandon Maxwell, Jeremy Scott, Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui, Rihanna, and even more to come, I'm sure. Below, find the breakdowns for each of the looks and the products you'll need to re-create them at home. It's easier than it looks and certainly a bit more exciting than your usual daytime go-to. That's what makeup is all about, right? Experimentation and creativity are back on the menu, and you've got these designers (and their various muses and inspirations) to thank.
