Beauty Lessons We Learned From NYC

Photographed by Cassidy Turner.
We bet you won't cop to how many strangers (or poles) you've walked into because you were too busy staring at your phone. We get it — those #fromwhereistand and surreal sunset pics don't double-tap themselves. But, if there's one thing that'll make us look up from our screens, it's NYC's beauty street style — and we've got 17 snaps that prove it.
The women ahead made the sidewalk their runway with their forward-thinking beauty looks. Think: Unexpected pops of eyeliner, ombré lips, and ultra-defined brows. But, before you start sweating at the thought of a full face of makeup in the summer (#ugh), rest assured — these options are surprisingly low maintenance. Ahead, makeup artist Sophie Haig gives us her expert breakdowns for each, along with pro application tips, techniques, and Maybelline product recommendations.
So, watch where you're going next time! You just might spot something beautiful.
