The NYFW Beauty Recap

While the hordes of the fashion elite are in London for the second week of Fashion Month, we here at Luelle are reflecting on the beauty trends we just saw last week in New York. While we usually head into the spring/summer collections anticipating a lot of the same (bold brows, bare skin, and blown out coiffs), the SS15-season has a surprising twist. Sure, there were the season staples, but we also saw refreshing new takes on trends we can’t wait to see on the streets. Here’s our five favorites, and one we’re still agape at.

The efficacy of powder foundation has always been a bit precarious. If your skin or the formula wasn’t just right then you’d most certainly end up with one of a laundry list of possible skin woes—too chalky, too cakey, too pale, too dry, the list goes on.


That is, until Chanel released Vitalumiére Loose Powder Foundation. One of the first of it’s kind, Vitalumiére is a hybrid of powders all working together to give a smooth, flawless, luminating finish to the skin. Packed with SPF 15 and a canola oil derivative—which loans suppleness and comfort to your skin all day long—the powder goes on like a loose foundation and sets on the skin like a liquid. The mica based powder uses the power of light to help diffuse the complexion, making it look more flattering.


And even better than the actual product is the inclusion of a mini kabuki brush, so you can get just the right amount of coverage (by barely using any powder).


Vitalumiére Loose Powder Foundation comes in five colors and is available for £55. Get it here.



As crunchy leaves begin to fall in a multitude of auburn hues, we’re slipping into knitwear, head to toe, in coordinating colours; slinging simple wool coats over our shoulders; and embracing minimalism to the tune of greys, blues and camels.
