Five Most Memorable Beauty Looks
From Toronto Fashion Week F/W 2016
Although there were many unique beauty trends at Toronto Fashion Week, some stood out above the crowd. Some of these looks were classic and have been on the runways for years, while others were bold new trends that are getting ready to explode onto the fashion scene.
Thick Unstructured Eyebrows
Bold and well-defined, thick eyebrows have become increasingly popular of the last year. Eyebrow embroidering and tinting have become staples into many beauty routines, not just in the fashion world, but also in the every day salon. As this trend becomes more and more popular, it is safe to say that thick eyebrows were an anticipated theme at Toronto Fashion Week. Almost every designer embraced this look, however it was the unstructured appearance of the thick eyebrows that stood out.
Pastel Makeup and Hair Colour
Although pastel colours were not a strong theme at Toronto Fashion week, those that chose to use the bright and cheerful colours made a memorable mark on the crowd. Bloggers, designers, stylists and others in the industry enjoyed the whimsical makeup and hair of Hayley Elsaesser. Our instant reaction was to smile and enjoy the show.
Thick, teased and matted hair was a common theme among the designers. This edgy approach to common hair trends made many in the audience excited at the idea of not having to brush their hair in the morning. Too good to be true? Yes, and this is simply because although this hair style was messy, it was still a work of art. Each hair stylist had to strategically place each piece of matted hair in a way that would give the model’s face shape and show off the collection. The messier the hair, the harder the work.
Gel liner was a staple at this year’s Toronto Fashion Week. Whether it was meant to create a perfect, thick cat eye, or meant to create a gothic/grunge look, it was used at nearly all of the shows to give the models’ eye definition. Greta Constantine and Helder Diego both showcased this look in their risky and edgy, high fashion shows. Again, although a messy look, the liner was strategically applied to make the eyes look large and in charge. Fierce was the goal for this look.
