Toronto Fashion Week 2012: Beauty Trends To Try For Fall (PHOTOS)
share this story
Toronto Fashion Week Fall 2012 was a mix of piglets on the catwalk, models walking barefoot, and textured fabrics like feathers and fur. And the hair and makeup also made their own impact -- and the beauty trends that emerged may be the most attainable of all the drama seen on that runway.
We saw everything from black lipstick at Caitlin Power, dramatic eyeliner at VAWK and Victorian-style braided hair at Chloe Comme Parris. Even with a range of designers throughout the week, there were five trends that were shown repeatedly on the runway.
This year, besides changing Fashion Week's official name to World MasterCard Fashion Week, the beauty scene received new sponsorship from Maybelline Canada for makeup and REDKEN for hair. Grace Lee, the head makeup artist for Maybelline Canada, says many designers had a focus on the eyes and lips. From layers of mascara to nude and dark lips, Lee helped create signature colours and textures for each collection. We also saw trends in nails from Essie Canada with printed patterns, matte finishes and dark purple stick-ons.
Here's how to take the beauty looks we loved from the runway and add them to your personal style.
