The clothes may be the focal point of New York Fashion Week, but the beauty looks — both on the runway and in the audience — are just as mesmerizing. Stars showed up in droves to the Coach Fall 2023 show on Feb. 13, and seated front row was Lil Nas X in a monochromatic look featuring striking “nose-bridge” makeup.
Sitting among Zoey Deutch, Ice Spice, and Camila Mendes, the “Montero” singer had bright, berry-red blush swept across his cheeks and nose. To take the look up a notch, tiny polka dots in red and yellow were scattered in the center of his face, creating a perfectly on-trend “nose-bridge” makeup look. Lil Nas X also wore short, red nails with 3D nail art — another big trend for 2023.
“Nose-bridge” makeup was predicted to be popular this year after appearing on numerous red carpets, runways, and social media pages. The avant-garde makeup look merges the space between editorial and every day makeup. “As a whole, we’re seeing young people reject traditional beauty standards and long-held ‘rules’ of makeup in favor of self-expression and artistry,” Cat Quinn, executive director of trends for MAC Cosmetics, previously told POPSUGAR about the trend. This describes Lil Nas X’s approach to beauty to a T.
The color scheme of the rapper’s look was carried through to his outfit. He was dressed in a pink turtleneck sweater and distressed jeans with red patchwork at the hem. They finished the ensemble with a fuzzy red jacket, boots, and matching Coach bag.
