BeautyNYFW Fall 2013 Beauty Trends

NYFW isn’t over yet but I’ve already picked out some of my favorite beauty trends from the runways. Which trend are you currently coveting? Share it with us below in the comments!

Big Hair Don’t Care: Voluminous locks were all over the place from Kate Spade to DVF, and of course Marc Jacobs brought the trend to a new level with teased curls and a major pouf.

Statement Eyes: Eyeliner is usually a NYFW fave but eyes were taken to a new level with dark wings at Monique Lhuillier, Edie Sedgwick inspired eyes at Rag & Bone and a luscious lavender pop at Jason Wu.

Pink Punchy Pout: Shades of pink and magenta were spotted all over the runways and made all of us swoon for a hot pink lip.

Nailed It: Nude and neutral nails were a major hit for many designers but Prabal Gurung chose a skinny triangle in the midst of olive hued nails for his show and Kate Spade went edgy with almond shaped nails and an accent stud to boot!
