The almost entirely rainy, humid, swampy weather challenged showgoers to get extra-creative with their hair and makeup looks during the Spring 2019 shows in New York City over the past week. Peeking out from beneath a slew of hoods, hats and umbrellas, we spotted plenty of inspiration: There were expertly blurred red lips, perfectly hazy smoky eyes, sleek ponytail-braid hybrids, soft wavy hair and graphic, anything-but-subtle eyeliner. In fact, the looks seen outside the shows rivaled those on the runways (and in some cases were the ones on the runways, as models left certain components of their hairstyles or makeup looks intact post-shows).
Now that the New York shows have wrapped for the season, we combed through the many (many, many) street style snaps captured by photographers in order to highlight the stand-out beauty moments, brimming with inspiration for the months ahead.
