Carolina Herrera wanted her models to look gorgeous for her Fall 2013 show, and that they did. For the elegant look, Orlando Pita for Moroccanoil gave a new twist (if you will) to the victory roll, while Diane Kendal for MAC added a gorgeous shade, Hot Tahiti, on the lips. Nails were adorned with Essie's Ladylike to streamline the elegant factor.
>> The Fall 2012 beauty look at Chris Benz was one part Dolly Parton in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and one part Liza Minnelli in Cabaret. Eyelids were given an ombré look with silver shadow dusted all the way up to the brows, and lips were given a creamy sheen with Lancôme Rouge In Love lipstick in Sweet Embrace. A dusting of blush and a dab of Juicy Tubes gloss in Pure finished the look. Hair was all about high-impact volume — thanks to the addition of some ultra-teased wigs. Nails painted in shades of lavender, chocolate, and gray completed the endearingly kooky vibe.
>> The beauty at Joseph Altuzarra's globally inspired Fall 2012 collection was all about the eyes. MAC makeup artist Tom Pecheux kept the base clean and simple, with just a touch of foundation dabbed on otherwise bare skin. A double line of winged liquid liner was applied straight across each eye, with a dab of silver shadow at the inner corners to finish the look. See how it all came together here, in our backstage beauty transformation lookbook.

>> While the hair and makeup at Milan Fashion Week may have seemed subdued by London and New York standards, there was still no shortage of gorgeous beauty looks — especially when it came to the eyes. Eyelids were foiled with metallic leaf at Fendi, glitter dusted at DSquared2, and lined in heavy-duty kohl just about everywhere else. Also of note: the gorgeous full-volume hair at Ferragamo, D&G, and Versace. Click through to see all that and more, here in the slideshow.

>> New York Fashion Week is in full swing, and if one thing is certain, it's this: there will be no shortage of wild new beauty looks to try come next Spring. Already, designers have trotted out more Kool-aid colors than we care to count — in hair (Peter Som), on lips (Richard Chai Love), and on eyelids (Jeremy Laing). But what if creamsicle-hues are not your thing? No worries. We've spotted a treasure trove of other styles, including smokey eyebrows (Derek Lam), candy-apple lips (Patrick Ervell), and cat-eye liner (L.A.M.B.). Also on offer — for those more classically-inclined — are pretty peach cheeks (Boy And Girl By Band Of Outsiders) and surfer-swept tresses (Jill Stuart). Here, we've rounded up all these, plus more — after all, nothing says Spring like a fresh new look.
The Fall 2011 Alexander McQueen show had some of the most exciting hair in all of Paris Fashion Week, with models' heads all but concealed beneath an armor of large metal barrettes. As with most things McQueen, the look was equal parts medieval romance and dark modernity. Get a 360-degree view of how stylists put the barrettes together, and marvel at just how many hair accessories they used.
