NYFW Fall 2016 Beauty Trends

There may, this season, have been less excitement and buzz around NYFW in light of the whole Mercedes Benz debacle and so many designers opting instead to show “in season” (the frigid temperatures didn’t help either…), but there was still plenty to love in terms of beauty inspiration.

Jenny Packham Fall 2014 Collection: Queen of the Night
