While there was no shortage of pretty hair and makeup moments on the New York Fashion Week Fall 2017 runways to bookmark for inspiration, there were also a number of looks that only brave souls would dare try at home. From Thom Browne’s wool cutout lips to Christian Siriano's heavy metal glitter tears, we’ve rounded up the craziest hair and makeup we saw at the NYFW shows.
1. Jeremy Scott
According to Jeremy Scott, if you're going to cry, your tears might as well be gold.
2. Prabal Gurung
Who says eyeliner can only be drawn on your lash lines? At Prabal Gurung runway makeup legend Diane Kendal applied bold strokes of tecnicolor eyeliner above the lids.
3. Christian Siriano
There were even more more tears at fashion week on the Christian Siriano runway. This time, with a copper heavy metal effect.
4. The Blonds
Inspired by the upcoming film The Mummy, the hair at The Blonds mimicked strips of fabric that were used in ancient Egypt to mummify the deceased.
5. Tadashi Shoji
Glitter lips may be NSFW, but if you love to sparkle and are brave enough, a swipe of glitter on your lower lash line is a solid alternative.
Emerging from a dip in the pool has never looked so badass thanks to the wet look hair, smudgy cobalt-winged eyeliner, and face jewelry at Chromat.
7. Adam Selman
Usually a haphazard top knot is our go-to look for chilling with a glass of wine but if you're a model in the Adam Selman show, the look is runway-appropriate.
8. Eckhaus Latta
The paint splattered faces at Eckhaus Latta wouldn't look out of place hanging at an art gallery next to a Jackson Pollock piece.
If you have the skills to master a cat eye, you're ready to move on to a negative space liner look as seen at VFILES.
10. Thom Browne
Thanks to strips of woven fabric, Thom Browne's show gave a whole meaning to bold brows and lips.
11. Anna Sui
File the makeup at Anna Sui under so wrong it’s right. Although makeup rules dictate wearing a bold eye or lip, makeup legend Pat McGrath gave the models both a cerulean smoky eye and crimson lip. We guess some rules are meant to be broken. Garren, creator of haircare brand R + Co took the look one step further by styling the models’ hair in loose curls using R +Co’s TWISTER Curl Primer ($25; neimanmarcus.com) to prep strands, and twisted two knots at the crown.
