Bold Lipstick Is The Most Popular Makeup Look Among NYFW’s Stylish Guests
Who says bright colors aren’t for winter?
Regardless of the show season, the runways of New York Fashion Week are always reliable sources of hair, makeup, and manicure inspiration. But the guests arriving to and from said shows offer equally memorable beauty street style moments. Throughout the seven days of events, the style set ascend onto the city, trekking from neighborhood to neighborhood wearing the biggest current beauty trends — as well as starting new ones. While the attendees and sidewalk spectators resemble walking TikTok and Instagram feeds, they’re also masters at making said trending looks all their own. And the New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2023 street style beauty looks are no exception.
Take all of the bangs seen on show-goers this season thus far. From curly bangs, choppy baby bangs, to full blunt fringe, no variation is off limits. And the makeup choices are just as daring. While there is no shortage of dewy no-makeup makeup looks on the fashion enthusiasts, elements of the season’s gothic runway beauty looks are trickling onto the streets. Smudgy eyeliner and dark lips are popping up outside the shows, proving that a shift in makeup aesthetics is coming.
As the NYFW F/W ‘23 season comes to a close, peruse all of the standout street style beauty moments to get inspiration for your own looks for the months to come. Ahead, TZR’s rundown of the must-see hair, makeup, and manicure looks seen on fashion week attendees.
Retro Hair Accessories

It’s a myth that a short bob leaves you with few styling options. Here, Katya Bychkova demonstrates how to accessorize the trending cut: simply stack a few snap clips right above the ear.
Who would have thought a hair net would ever look this cool? This colorful beaded hair accessory fashion week was spotted outside of the Collina Strada show.
The Balletcore trend was alive and well outside of the Sandy Liang show. Guests, like the one pictured above, accessorized their dance-inspired outfits (complete with legwarmers and ballet flats) with hair bows.
Bangs, Bangs, & More Bangs
Micro bangs are having a moment, and as Sophia Roe demonstrates, the look really enhances natural curls. While the bangs are short (hence the name), they had a cool contrast to mid-length and long hair.
If content creator Alyssa Coscarelli’s choppy Mia Wallace-esque bob with baby bangs and caramel lip is any indication, the ‘90s beauty influences will be strong in the coming months.
Textured bangs and a long bob are always a street style photo-worthy moment. The beauty of adding bangs to your existing cut is that it’ll instantly transform it into a new look.
A set of long, center-parted curtain bangs add a retro flair to any hairstyle. Better yet, they’re low maintenance as far as fringe goes – they’ll blend seamlessly into your layers throughout the grow-out process.
The middle of winter is actually the perfect time of year to wear a coral lip – think of it as a frigid weather pick me up.
A low twisted updo adds a touch of romance to a grungy chocolate brown matte lip.
When your inflatable red boots make a statement, you need an equally bold lip to match.
A vibrant fuchsia matte lip adds a stunning contrast to an all-black ensemble.
Seen on celebrities like Lizzo, Julia Fox, and Kendall Jenner, the bleached brow trend shows no signs of slowing down. Model Richie Shazam paired their platinum brows with a smudgy pewter smoky eye for a next-level edgy beauty look.
Flower Power Eyes
Who says flowers aren’t in season during the winter? This NYFW guest brought a little bit of upcoming spring weather to the F/W ‘23 shows with the delicate white daisy petals she drew along the outer corners of her lower lids.

The Y2k dip dye trend seen on celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj has made its way to NYFW. The addition of warm wine to the ends of this fashion show attendee’s dark brunette base is a great source of inspiration for anyone with dark hair who wants to dip their toes into the trend.
