Lexi Atkins Reveals The Coolest Beauty For NYFW
If you think you’ve got the coolest outfit ever for NYFW, one that ensures street style photographers will declare you their newest muse, don’t forget that style is always in the details. New York is an OCD city, where a bad hair day or smudged lip liner may end up being the bane of your existence. Elevate your fashion week look to the next level by paying extra attention to your hair and makeup. We’re loving the slick wet hair and red lips that Lexi Atkins showed off in this photoshoot by Nate Hoffman for Mane Addicts. It’s a look that commands attention and lets everyone around you know that you’re the sexiest girl in the room—here’s how to get it.
Slick your hair: Straighten clean, dry hair and part it in the middle. Then, use a thin-tooth comb to work in gel, which will make your locks look wet and keep them from moving around. We’re loving Oribe’s Rock Hard Gel to get your hair to do exactly what you want.
Strong Brows: Select a brow pencil that’s one shade lighter than your natural brow color for a strong yet subtley filled in eyebrows. Try e.l.f’s Essential Instant Lift Brow Kit.
Subtle Eyeliner: Atkins doesn’t go overboard with the eyeliner, because the magic of this look is in the lids. To make sure your eyes look wide but not overly dramatic, try a brown pencil on the upper lids and outer corners of your bottom lashes. Try Bobbi Brown’s Long Wear Eyepencil for a look that stays on all day.
Glittery Lids: Most likely the piece de resistance of this look. A dusting of glittery, orange-pink eyeshadow which extends almost to your brow line and spans the length of your brows is essential. Use the same eyeshadow under the eyes to create a totally unexpected, new take on the cateye. We’re loving the Anastasia Beverly Hills World Traveler Palette, which features 12 shades so you can pick the perfect shadow to match your outfit.
Red Lips: Matte no more! Finish up the look with a strong, red-orange lip with a tiny bit of shine. Cream lipsticks are perfect for this look: especially Dolce & Gabbana’s Classic Cream Lipstick in Cosmopolitan.
