  • Find out which trends you need to know about for the spring season, and the products you'll need to get the look.

  • A Touch of Grunge: DSquared2's heavily lined smokey eye, extra lashes and soft pink lip (we love Benefit Cosmetics' Full Finish Lipstick in Mod Squad) helped to drive home the '90s grunge look of their Spring 2013 show.

  • Inspired by Kurt Cobain's straggly locks, the Proenza Schouler girl for Spring 2013 had hair that looked like it needed a good wash. For makeup, Diane Kendal created an "urban feel" with strong brows and smudged eyelids, by blending MAC Eye Pencil in Coffee across the crease.

  • House of Holland's Spring 2013 show gave us '90s grunge with a touch of chicness. While the models had very loose waves (pinned in at the sides for less volume) the only color on their faces was a pop of copper cream shadow along the eyelids, brought up to the brow bone and under the lower lash line for a bit of a sullen look.

  • All About Blue: The water-inspired collection at Monique Lhuillier had a variety of different blue shades on the eyes, with a shimmery highlight adding definition up into the brow bone.

  • At Michael Kors, "floating" blue liner was spotted on the models, with a streak of liner strategically placed along the crease of the eyelid. Makeup artist Dick Page used Shiseido's Luminizing Satin Eye Trio in Punky Blue.

  • The soft blue shadow used at Nanette Lepore proves to us that a bright blue can be worn on the eyes, as long as it's blended well (and grounded with a line of thick black liner).

  • Bold French Tips: French manicures were brought back into the high fashion world this season, with bright yellow tips at Jenni Kayne's Spring 2013 show. OPI manicurists used a nude base coat (OPI's Don't Touch My Tutu) to contrast with a bright yellow polish, OPI's Need Sunglasses? to complete the "surf sophistication" collection.

  • One of the biggest surprises in the nail world (or possibly, from the entire Spring 2013 season), was when Karl Lagerfeld had his models walk the runway with classic French manicures for his show. Although we're not exactly sold on the traditional look, it had to be mentioned – if Karl puts his seal of approval on it, we're sure many will follow. Using Chanel Eastern Light (a new white shade) and Chanel Ballerina, a subtle pink shade, the mani is clearly a classic.

  • At Issey Miyake, models had a rather thick take on the French manicure, with an almost "half-finished" mani in bold blue hues. Try Essie's Butler Please for the look.

  • Colored Lashes: At Moncler Gamme Rouge, fake lashes were given an extra dose of life with blue liner and blue mascara, making this look quite the attention-grabber.

  • At Donna Karan, makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury used MAC Cosmetics eyeliner in Magenta to create a winged eye, and then painted lashes with MAC Chromacake in the same shade to achieve a bright fuchsia eye.

  • At Laura Siegel, lashes were painted a bright pink to complement the streaks of pastel hair color.

  • Hair Accessories: For the Marc by Marc Jacobs show, the collection was all about color, and to complete the look faces were framed in double-wrapped head scarves.

  • At House of Holland, bedazzled hats were used to adorn the heads of models, but they were styled to be worn loosely and to the side to keep that warm weather feel.

  • For Max Mara's Spring 2013 show, neutral headwraps were wound across the foreheads of models to help hold back messy buns and add to the grungy, lived-in feel of their complete looks.

  • Pastel Hues: For Peter Som's spring collection, the concept was "women on the verge" and the clash between the uptown and downtown girl. Eugene Souleiman for Wella styled the hair to look undone with a tousled texture and patchy streaks of pastel hued extensions woven throughout to heighten "punk rock edginess."

  • At Oscar de la Renta's spring show hairstylist Orlando Pita created messy French twists with an added twist – streaks of color were intertwined throughout models' hair, varying from yellow to blue to pink.

  • At the Laura Siegel presentation, models' hair was interspersed with bits of pastel color such as green, pink and yellow to contrast with their bright pink lashes.

  • So Sleek: For Herve Leger, hairstylist Laurent Philippon sprayed Bumble and Bumble's Does It All Styling Spray over the hair while flat ironing to get a sleek look, and then created a very tight, sharp braid starting at the ear and going around the back of the head to mimic the look of the Herve dress.

  • At Jill Stuart, Odile Gilbert for Kerastase created clean and healthy hair. After blow drying the hair straight with a round brush, Gilbert sectioned off the hair with hairspray (Kerastase Double Force) and added shine with Kerastase's Elixir Ultime Moringa Immortel.

  • At Ohne Titel, the hair was stick-straight and sleek, left without an ounce of volume due to extreme flat ironing.

  • Pop of Pink: One of our favorite beauty looks from the entire spring season was from Giles Deacon, who made a clear statement with matte skin, natural lashes and a bright fuchsia lip. Makeup artist Lucia Pieroni used MAC Cosmetics Embrace Me Lip Pencil to get the look.

  • At Hussein Chalayan's spring show, makeup artists mixed MAC's Lipmix in Crimson and White and patted it onto the lips before applying Captive Lipstick for this muted pink shade.

  • Inspired by a "cool California girl" Holly Fulton's show brought us a fun fuchsia and orange lip. Makeup artist Andrew Gallimore used Embrace Me Lip Pencil to define the lip and mixed MAC Pro Fuchsia and White Lipmix for the bright pink shade. He then added MAC Pro Orange Lipmix to the center of the lip for that pop of color.
