  • '90s Grunge: This season, we saw '90s beauty trends take over the runway, with smudged eye makeup, day old, lived-in hairstyles and matte, bold lips.

  • At BCBG the models topped off their tousled locks with knit beanies, completing the look with a sweeping of neutral shadow, pale gloss and bold brows.

  • For the Marc Jacobs show, Francois Nars referenced Joan Jett's smokey yet smudged out black eye makeup, using a combination of two eyeshadows: Nars Single Eyeshadow in Bengali and the black shade from Nars Duo Eyeshadow in Pandora.

  • For Victoria Beckham's fall show, hairstylist Guido created a sexy, glossy low ponytail that looked almost wet. Guido wanted it to look "Very easy, almost accidental" wanting the texture to be the main focus of the look.

  • Blunt Bangs: The '90s wasn't the only decade that influenced the fall 2013 runways. We saw '60s-inspired bangs making a major comeback, with heavy, blunt bangs popping up at several shows such as Pucci and Anna Sui.

  • At Anna Sui, models were given individual looks, where their '60s statement eyes varied as much as their hairstyles. Some had dramatic, blunt bangs and some had a side-swept look, while others had no bangs and a simple, middle part.

  • At Belstaff the hair was styled in a bit more of a shaggy, carefree way, and models also showing off their individual styles – as well as the shaggy bob above, with bangs at the eye-grazing level – a nod to the real life, working woman.

  • For Emilio Pucci's fall show, the late sixties were again a clear influence on the designer. Models rocked long hair and heavy bangs that hid their long, lush lashes.

  • Bold Lips: Everyone loves a rich lip, and the fall 2013 season had plenty. From rich wine stains to deep burgundies, it's time to step outside your comfort zone with both texture and color.

  • Douglas Hannant paired a sleek black cat eye with a clean and glossy berry lip, finishing the look with complementary burgundy nails.

  • At Ohne Titel the models showed us how to wear a classic matte red lip the right way. With perfectly smooth and flawless skin (plus bare eyes – no mascara!), this has become the red lip that we aim to achieve.

  • Zac Posen's deep burgundy lip, created by MAC Cosmetics lead artist Kabuki, was meant to combine a luxe glamour and a "cool" girl. The lip was created using MAC's Vino Lip Pencil and MAC Pro Burgundy LipMix.

  • Braided Beauties: We can't get enough of braids it seems, as they returned with a vengeance for fall. This time though, they were intricately twisted into knots and used to give the hair more of an "accessory" than just a simple style.

  • Alexandre Herchcovitch's side-swept style was complete with dual braids pulled up the back of the head, a new spin on the French twist.

  • At Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, fishtail braids were intricately wound into a low chignon, giving the style more texture.

  • Rodarte's braided style was instantly a Pinterest phenomenon, with Odile Gilbert creating a deconstructed "rock n' roll princess" look. Gilbert pulled two braids back towards the center of the head and created a rose with the braids, letting one fall loose.

  • Matte Makeup: Instead of dewy skin, we're talking matte, clean makeup looks for fall. We saw these fresh-faced beauties at shows like Jill Stuart, BCBG and Temperley London, and even noticed the trend on nails, hair and lips – matte is here to stay this season!

  • The girls at BCBG showed off bold brows and minimal makeup with fresh-faced, matte skin.

  • At DKNY, the matte makeup look was going strong with an added touch of a pale pink lip and flushed cheek.

  • For Jill Stuart's show, matte skin complemented bold brows, tousled waves and nude lips.

  • Mega-Volume: Hair went to new heights this season, with super-sized volume and curls that simply weren't meant to be tamed.

  • At Marc by Marc Jacobs, Guido teased and prodded the '40s inspired hair until he had a large mess of waves around each of the models' heads.

  • For Badgley Mischka, the hair was braided up along the back of the head and then teased into a gorgeous almost pompadour style towards the front – another nod to Hitchcock heroines.

  • At Diane von Furstenberg, hairstylist Orlando Pita created an undone and disheveled yet still glamorous girl.

  • Pretty Ponytails: While ponytails have been "back" for the last few seasons, this season they were more prevalent than ever, both in the way of sleek styles and low-slung, textured 'dos. Basically, there's something for everyone!

  • At Alexander Wang, the designer went for a "futuristic" look by coordinating all of the model's hair to one "cognac" ponytail color of a certain model on their runway. Hairstylist Guido Palau used Redken's Diamond Oil to add extra sheen to each pony, and gave every model the same multi-colored, low-slung look.

  • At Donna Karan's fall show the ponytails were extremely architectural, with Eugene Souleiman pulling them up and away from the model's heads and tying them with a cord near the crowns.

  • For Suno, models had low-slung ponytails with middle parts, showing a look that could easily be taken off the runways.

  • Sleek Strands: While the "wet look" is definitely not an easy one to take off the runway and into the streets, it certainly isn't going anywhere. So, luckily for those of us who want to try it out, this fall it became a little more accessible. At shows like Nanette Lepore and Rebecca Taylor, stylists were seen slicking back hair into sleek chignons and ponytails, instead of leaving strands down and "dripping."

  • For Nanette Lepore's fall show, the hair was slicked back but precisely parted with one middle section that then joined the rest of the ponytail, making for an easy hairstyle (even if you're running late!) that will look oh-so-sleek no matter where you have to go.

  • At Naeem Khan, the sleek pin curls stayed in pin curl form and were flattened to the head for an envious style.

  • At Chado Ralph Rucci the hair was slicked back and formed into a cone shape – obviously not something you could exactly take to the streets.

  • Stained Lips: While we already told you about the bold, rich lip colors happening for fall, take note that lip "stains" are also back. This means that just in case you're scared to apply a dark hue for fear that it won't stay, now you don't have any excuses.

  • At Cushnie et Ochs, the luxe ladies has slicked back hair, bronze smokey eyes and a deep burgundy stained lip.

  • At Sally LaPointe, the lips were stained with more color near the center and faded near the outer corners for that "just-kissed" look.

  • At Vivienne Tam, Maud Laceppe for MAC Cosmetics completed the punky, '90s look with a combination of MAC's Currant Lip Liner, Nightmoth Lip Pencil, Black LipMix and Burgundy LipMix.

  • Statement Eyes: While we love a bold lip look, the eyes stole the show this fall. From graphic cat eyes to metallic and glossy lids, this season is all about getting creative with your shadows.

  •  Pat McGrath created elongated cat eyes at Anna Sui's fall 2013 show on the top of the model's eyelids, complete with black dots along the bottom lash lines.

  • At J. Mendel, Gucci Westman wanted to bring out the sophisticated palette of the fabrics so she created copper eyes with a glossy sheen with Revlon's ColorStay Smoky Shadow Stick in Atomic and Torch.

  • For Thakoon, their fall collection was inspired by summer, so Diane Kendal reflected that in the makeup by layering navy shadow with glitter. She used NARS' Marie Galante Duo Eyeshadow and Outremer Single Eyeshadow to get the look.

  • Textured Nails: When we mentioned that textures were on trend everywhere, we meant it. Glossy nails may be gorgeous, but this fall, textures are where it's at. You'll see everything from matte to jewels, and then some.

  • At Noon by Noor, Red Carpet Manicure created feminine, burgundy nails that were paneled with a matte texture.

  • At Ruffian, Keri Blair for MAC Cosmetics created veiled nail art, showing us that even tulle can be used on nails.

  • At Libertine, butter LONDON's Katie Jane Hughes decked out gold nails with a variety of crystals, inspired by the artistic collection.

  • Windswept Cheeks: Blush is not only a product that is far under-valued, but also one that when we see it used on the runways in a more vivid color than we're used to, we stop and question the doll-like look. But, as you'll notice, it can easily bring life back into the subjects, so lesson learned!

  • At Nanette Lepore's show, models walked the runway with a streak of blush across their cheekbones, creating (and accenting) fabulous bone structure. 

    Photo: Stylecaster Pictures /
  • At Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti the blush was applied so high up on the cheekbones that the models looked slightly sunburned – definitely a "lived-in" look!

  • At Ralph Lauren the makeup was young, fresh and subtle, with pale pink lip gloss, a thin sliver of black eyeliner and a soft dusting of pink blush.
