Punk Rock Beauty Is Making A Comeback
Claire Miles - February 22, 2020

Happiness Is Fun

By Pauline Oliver

Happy is as happy does
When all is said and done
Truly being happy
Starts with having fun

Set those happiness endorphins free
To flood your stressed out brain
With lots of happy thoughts
To relax and ease the strain
Eat chocolate
And laugh-a-lot

Chew chilis hot and red
Wear bright colours instead

Keep a dog or a cat
Try yoga on a mat

Feel sunshine warm your being
Seek beauty for the seeing

Classical music wins by miles
Exchanging lots of smiles

That's how to raise your spirit
Lift your body and your mind
This daily dose of happiness
Is a pleasure - you will find.

New York Fashion Week saw a new beauty theme weaved into numerous designer shows: punk rock. Right after last year’s Euphoria makeup moment where we saw lots of rhinestones and sparkly eyeshadow, fashion has seen a blast from the past trend. From heart-stamped face paint at Christian Siriano to chipped nail polish at Khaite, here are the trends that look as good as 1975.

Face Paint

Christian Siriano’s lead makeup artist used Harley Quinn for inspiration for the Fall/Winter 2020 show. “Inspired by shiny flecks in the fashion collection and the Birds of Prey star, I recreated the comic-book character’s signature dark eyeliner and the heart tattoo on her cheek,” Parsons says. “I added an orchid-pink lip for a finished look that was equal parts sexy and strong.”

Hairstylist Laurent Philippon worked the slick hairstyle look at the Christian Cowan’s runway show. “I used Sumogel to pull strands out around the face, then spritzed Sumo Liquid Wax+ Finishing Spray for buildable separation, light hold, and natural sheen,” Philippon says.

Chipped Nail Polish

Nail pro Jin Soon Choi and Khaite designer Catherine Holstein presented the most unexpected manicure: glossy black chipped nails. Choi describes the look as “effortlessly cool” said she used a brush dipped in nail polish remover to chip away the paint.
