Beauty Looks That'll Get You Photographed at Fashion Week

The Smokier, The Better

Layer on way more black eyeliner than you think is necessary and smudge it all up. You'll be mistaken for a mysterious French girl who probably works for a super-cool underground glossy that no one in New York has heard of...yet.

Last winter, I bought a really ugly bomber jacket. It's got shiny black fabric with a metallic purple ethnic print and glittery yellow stripes on the sleeves and collar. I think it's cool, but my non-fashion industry working friends are embarrassed to be seen with me when I'm wearing it. So in an effort to prove to them that my style sense isn't completely off-base, I wore it to New York Fashion Week with the hopes of being snapped by a street style photographer.

While waiting to enter my first show of the day on a snowy sidewalk, I was approached by one camera-toting blogger and then another, and then a whole group! I gave an awkwardly closed-mouth smile (I had to play it cool) and then texted all of the jacket's naysayers to brag.

But you don't have to wear a heinous-looking jacket to get noticed. Getting photographed can be as simple as wearing a really great lipstick. Click through above for hair and makeup ideas that are sure help you on your ascent to becoming a bona fide street style star, just like the ladies who inspired them.
