Listen, Ear Makeup Is The Coolest, Budget-Friendly NYFW Trend Right Now

Don't have money for that billion-dollar designer dress from NYFW? Ear makeup is one fall trend you can do at home on the cheap.

Daring beauties, take note: There's a new fall trend straight from the runways of New York Fashion Week, and you can rock it with items you probably have at home already. Ready for it? Ear makeup. Yes, ear makeup.

No, we're not talking covering up that rogue blemish with a little concealer; this NYFW trend is a badass makeup style that will highlight some of your coolest earrings, or take the place of earrings in the first place. (Just think, you may not have to buy new pricey earrings to match that super-specific bridesmaid's dress color after all.)

This killer new trend was spotted on the runways for major designers like Proenza Schouler, using Diane Kendal for MAC cosmetics, and even on models during the opening ceremony. And though it's been seen before — on Louis Vitton's runways during Paris fashion week last fall — now it seems it's primed for a beauty breakout.

Proenza Schouler models rocked the ear makeup trend while wearing massive, statement earrings.


However, trendy ladies at home around the world and models on other runways are using the style to take the place of earrings completely or give a cool boost to smaller earrings.
