For Fall 2013, MAC senior artist Chantel Miller took a long and haunting journey with the designers of Libertine using kohl, eyeliner, and a lot of precision. The final makeup look was a little more '60s with a mod twist, but at its inception, it provided a dark and haunting feel. Check out her techniques at the makeup test from New York Fashion Week.

Viewing Saint Laurent's Fall 2013 runway can be likened to taking a time-traveling trip to the '90s grunge era. Hair was purposefully mussed for that second-day hair feeling, and the makeup was focused on the eyes. Each model wore well-rimmed eyes that were smudged for a tear-stained effect. The good thing is that this is one runway look you'll be able to re-create by just rolling out of bed.
The look: Smeared eyeliner and just-out-of-bed hairstyles.
Who would wear it: A woman who works hard but plays harder.
Trends: Punk and grunge are having a revival on the international runways; Saint Laurent channeled the angst of the decade with the undone hair texture and dark eye makeup.

Stella McCartney sent her models down the Fall 2013 runway in Paris clad in sporty-cool ensembles with similarly stylish yet low-key beauty looks. Decked out in casually tossed-back ponytails and barely-there makeup, this minimalistic style is the kind you can wear to an array of occasions. It's polished but not fussy, and laid-back but not sloppy.
The look: Low-slung ponytails and just a touch of makeup: a dab of color on the cheeks and lips, along with a few swipes of mascara.
Who would wear it: Anyone and everyone.
Trends: Throughout Fashion Month, we've seen ponytails of all sorts and minimal makeup, and Stella's Fall 2013 hits both marks.
Olivia Munn stepped out this weekend with enviable eye makeup that proved you can get a glowing look without the need for glitter. At PaleyFest, Olivia opted for a bronzed metallic shadow for a casual take on the typical black smoky eye. To accent the more neutral color, Olivia added a touch of sheen to her cheeks, eyes, and lips for a dewy finish that made her appear even more radiant than her natural olive complexion. In order to mimic her look, use a cream shadow like Nars Vintage Duo Cream Eyeshadow ($34), layering the shimmer on top of the brown hue in the center of the lid. The rosy pink color on her cheeks and lips didn't detract from the main statement: a mahogany spin on a classic favorite.
From one red carpet after another, Jessica Chastain's undeniably gorgeous red locks are usually styled with soft, brushed-out waves. But over the weekend, Jessica was spotted at Givenchy's Fall 2013 showing in Paris with superstraight strands. The sleek look made the actress, who is also the face of Givenchy's latest perfume, Manifesto, appear far different from the award-season bombshell we're used to. What do you think of her superstraight style?

When Bertrand Thomas and his wife, Mathilde, (pictured above) launched Caudalie in 1995 with just three items on the roster, it was the first company to use the antiaging benefits of grape-seed polyphenols in skin care. Since then, the vinotheraphy-based brand has launched a full range of products, using practically all parts of the grape, from skin to stalk. In fact, its radiance-boosting Beauty Elixir ($49), which contains grape fruit extract, is so popular, the brand recently opened boutiques stateside.
But what is it about French women that makes them seem so pleasantly content and perfectly complected? In the NYT best-seller, French Women Don't Get Fat, author Mireille Guiliano describes a lifestyle that is full of variety, where deprivation is replaced by savoring things to the fullest. And when it comes to beauty, Thomas explains it's a similar mindset: "Balance is the key word: French women balance food their food and balance their lifestyle." In honor of Paris Fashion Week, see just what Thomas means on how French women get it right when you keep reading.
