Runway to reality


Anyone can make the world their runway and take it by storm. Get these extra looks seen on the catwalk and take it to the streets for an empowered look.

Star sparkle

A theatrical look for that star-quality

The fashion world’s constant penchant for sparkle can be seen all over the runway. The glitter mania have a theatrical exposure when models’ faces are fully dusted in holographic glitter. To make this wearable in one’s day-to-day life, take a shimmery shadow like Stila Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow to swipe across the lids. Don’t skimp on highlighters—this time, glitters are welcome—and apply generously to the high points of your face. For your lips, go for metallic finishes or layer on an iridescent lip gloss (Becca Liquid Crystal Glow Gloss in Amethyst x Geode) for that star-quality pout.

Glow getter

A luminous, glowing finish to give a natural look

Gloss—latex, plastic, or vinyl—should never be shied away from if full luster is the goal. In beauty terms, glass skin is a “classic.” Skincare is always key: exfoliate, hydrate, and make use of oils (La Mer The Renewal Oil) for that luminous, glowing finish. Get on board with the look by applying gel or cream products with the finest shimmer on the lids (Tom Ford Cream Color For Eyes) and top with a non-sticky eye gloss (M.A.C Eye Gloss in Pearl Varnish & Medoc or Glossier Balm Dotcom). Achieve fuller lips with Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer.

Feline fancy

It’s time to show who’s bold and daring in the real world

Embrace your inner Catwoman with head-to-toe animal prints. Feline prints are purrfect accents to vivid, experimental beauty looks. Start with a monochromatic palette or use a creamy matte lipstick like Sunnies Face Fluffmatte on your lips, cheeks, and lids. Take it further by adding arty details like dots and lines using a smudge-proof liner like Kat Von D Tattoo Liner—or crystal studs for fancier occasions, if you wish—to your dynamic canvas. Channel that bold and daring animal that the world never knew it needed!
