Skip the inevitable end-of-summer blues by giving your beauty routine a major fall upgrade. From wet strands a la Prada to Gucci's smoldering lids, here are 10 beautiful runway looks that will take you right into the fall of things.
Alexander Wang's Gelled Pony
While the wet look was a prominent beauty trend for fall, Alexander Wang's take on this hairstyle went the sportier route thanks to a fresh styled pony. To get the look, use gel or mousse and comb hair back with fingers before securing the rest of your hair in a tight pony.
Honor's Electric Cat Eye
The cat eye trend is about to get a lot more graphic for fall thanks to thicker lines and brighter hues. For inspiration, check out Honor's electric blue version which will add a mighty pop of color to any beauty look.
Jason Wu's Grape Stare
Blue isn't the only color getting special treatment in the eye department this fall. Bold purples like this grape shade seen at Jason Wu proved as vibrant as it was statement-making. To get this look, apply a similar shade around your entire eye area, making sure to pay close attention to the lower rim.
3.1 Phillip Lim's Copper Pout
Tired of the usual reds and pinks when painting your pout? For fall, take note of Phillip Lim's copper lip shade, which is sexy enough for a date as it is sophisticated enough to wear to work. Make sure to give this lip trend the attention it deserves by paring down the rest of your beauty look.
Rebecca Taylor's Full Brows
Looking for easy ways to play up your features? Simply make your arches the focal point of your face. Fuller brows, like the ones seen at Rebecca Taylor's Fall 2013 show, not only frame your face and eyes perfectly, they also help detract from other imperfections like dark circles.
Valentino's Puritan Braid
Valentino's clean braid is more minimal than the ones we've seen on runways past (think Alexander Wang, Tory Burch), yet also more sophisticated thanks to its no-nonsense accessory, a thick patent leather band. Easy to create and style, this pretty hairstyle is a great option for fall, especially when your locks aren't cooperating.
Temperley London's Avant Garde Bun
Not your typical ballerina bun, Temperley London showed off an artsy take on the classic bun. Avant-garde at best, this sophisticated bun takes any look, even the most casual one, to a whole new fashion-forward level.
Gucci's Sultry Eyes
For its Fall 2013 show, Gucci ventured to the dark side by creating a smoldering eye look. By using rich tones like burgundy and plums to play up the lids and contrasting with no brows, this dark beauty look majorly played up the collection's tough, yet sexy, vibe.
Derek Lam's Crimped Hair
Subtle crimps made a strong impression on the runways, including at shows like Derek Lam. To get this cool undone look, simply braid pieces of hair overnight and release ties come morning.
Carolina Herrera's Matte Contour
This fall, skip the summer shimmer, and contour your face with a matte bronzer instead. For inspiration, check out Carolina Herrera's sophisticated beauty look that can be easily achieved using a terracotta or apricot blush shade with a matte finish.
