Although we have about four months left in 2021, the fashion and beauty worlds are already living in the spring/summer 2022 season. Thankfully, New York Fashion Week is giving us a peek at what the future looks like. As models walk the catwalks across New York City this week for small, masked, and vaccinated audiences, we get to see the hair and makeup looks that may just be taking over our own heads and faces after we ring in the new year and say goodbye to winter. Or you can get a headstart and look to the runways for ways to be the trendsetter in your friend group.
So far, we can tell you that you'll definitely want to get a black eye pencil, colored mascara, and metallic eye shadow palette ready to help recreate the dramatic wings, bold brows, and golden extravaganza seen at Christian Siriano, ThreeASFOUR, and Collina Strada, respectively. Consider that just a fun, little hint at the rest of the stunning hair and makeup moments we're loving from NYFW, though. We have many, many more ahead for you to also droll over and dream about recreating.

We're not sure which look we loved more at Peter Do: the metallic silver eye shadow brushed onto the inner corners for a mirror-like glow or the I-just-got-out-of-the-shower-looking-gorgeous hair and makeup. Both packed intrigued with their high-shine effects.
Badgley Mischka presented a rainbow of looks on the runway, incidentally showing how jade green eye shadow coordinates with every color if you set your mind to it. Makeup artist Mary Irwin added a wash of the gemstone hue to lids with hints of shimmery lime and emerald for extra dimension and a disco aesthetic. (The Nyx Professional Makeup Ultimate Utopia Shadow Palette touts similar shades for making the look happen on your very own eyes.)
To add to the timeless vibes, hairstylist Peter Gray straightened the models' long hair for a sleek, Cher-esque effect. We suggest the GHD Max Styler to help you get the job done quickly.
Taking cues from the setting for the Ulla Johnson show — the Brooklyn Botanic Garden — makeup artist Romy Soleimani painted gorgeous corals and magentas onto the center of the models' lips and blended the hues outward as if the colors were sprouting out of them.
The rest of the makeup was kept fresh and neutral with glowing skin (amped up by Noble Panacea's Prime Radiance Serum), taupe-toned mauve shadow on lids, and bold arches.
Reflecting the bright colors of Prabal Gurung's gowns, makeup artist Sil Bruinsma concentrated orbs of neon pink and blue on the inner and outer corners of models' eyes, creating a fun, aura-like effect that we'll definitely be experimenting with before spring arrives with the Danessa Myricks Beauty Colorfix in Rainbow and Beaches.
The key to balancing out the florescent hues is leaving the lips and cheeks low-key with skin tone-flattering pink-toned nude blush and lipstick.
If neons aren't your thing, perhaps the smoky eyes at Dundas are. Makeup artist Diane Kendal focused bronze shadow on the same areas as Prabal Gurung and blended shimmery champagne onto the middle of the models' lids for a halo effect.
For hair, Duffy gave the models a deep side part that just looked cooler and sultrier with the wind blowing on the outdoor runway.
Remember when peach-toned makeup was everywhere back in 2017? Well, it's about to make its grand revival. For Adeam's spring/summer lookbook, models' lids and cheeks were given dreamy swaths of the pastel, fruit-inspired hue for a monochromatic moment that flatters every skin tone. Get a head start on peach season with the Simihaze Beauty Sun Flush in the aptly-named shade Peach.
Just as we predicted, ROYGBIV brows are having a moment — and the unexpected colorful touch is bound to escalate in popularity by 2022. Take the runway look at ThreeASFOUR as proof. Models' arches were groomed with a subtle sky blue hue while the rest of the makeup was left starkly neutral. Even their lips were taken down with a layer of concealer and hair tied back into a messy, high bun to let the cerulean be the center of attention.
At home, you can recreate the look by brushing the L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Mascara in Cobalt Blue through your brows to give them a similar shock of blue.
We simply cannot get over the intricate details of the hairstyle that graced the runway at Christian Siriano's show. Hairstylist Jawara Wauchope fashioned Ss in the models' hair with the help of extensions, wire, and a generous amount of hairspray, as well as a Dyson Supersonic to help slick everything into place. Wauchope even wielded a needle and thread to hold the special shape.
As if the hair weren't enough, makeup artist Sofia Tilbury paired it with striking winged liner, which she drew on with the brown-black side of the new Charlotte Tilbury Super Nudes Eye Liner Duo and smoked out with matte black shadow.
Makeup artist Allie Smith dusted makeup's most uncharted territory — ears — with golden shimmer along with the inner corners of the models' eyes. Their cheekbones were also given a swirl of metallic coral to mimic the outdoor show's Golden Hour glow. The MAC Eyeshadow x8: Feast Your Eyes covers all these bases for your very own version of the twinkling look.
Although not every model had neon tangerine hair, most had technicolor extensions affixed to their head for extra length and pizzaz, courtesy of hairstylist Evanie Frausto.
