When it came to makeup, the color palettes at LAFW SS19 got a little rowdy. Lipsticks were daring and sunny, or quite the opposite—peachy to accommodate heavy strokes of winged eyeliner. Cheeks glimmered and glowed. The season also saw a proliferation of equally spirited hair—serpentine braids, wind-swept, pastel pixie dos and cotton-candy-like teased ponytails. Suffice to say, as we surveyed the fashion, we also took notes. Here are a few lessons we picked up from the runway.
Opt for one-fell-swoop drama
Sometimes, a boldly swept dash of color across the eyelids is enough to make a statement.
Play around with unicorn freckles
And it’s even better when paired with fun hair.
Swirl some blush on your temples
This sacred powder is not exclusively reserved for cheekbone definition.
Don’t be afraid to get artsy with bangs
Even if that means dipping a finger in the ol’ bottle of hair gel.
Step up your middle-part game with braids
Because you can still sport Coachella hair when it’s not Coachella.
