We hate to get all Devil Wears Prada on you, but that famous cerulean speech rings true: what you see on the runways now will be hitting beauty counters within a year. Take this year’s wealth of blue liner, shadow, and mascara, for example—it was all the rage on runways a year or two ago and hit drugstores en masse this summer. So what can you expect in 2014? These are the runway looks we loved most in 2013.
Makeup artist Diane Kendal is known for creating flawless skin backstage, but at Jason Wu’s S/S14 show she got to go wild—sort of. She used Lancome’s Color Design Eye Brightening All-in-One Five Pan Shadow ($49) in Bronze Amour and loose gold glitter to build the most sophisticated glitter look we’ve seen.
You’ll need to find a few dozen Swarovksi crystals to pull off the rhinestone lips Pat McGrath whipped up for Dior’s S/S13 Haute Couture show, but it’ll be worth it.
No-mascara was the surprising trend at F/W13 fashion week last February, as seen here at Theyskens’ Theory.
White eye makeup was one of the biggest trends to emerge from S/S14 New York Fashion Week, like the shadow Joan Smalls wears here at Altuzarra’s show.
Hair stylist Luigi Murenu pin-curled every strand of hair and pinned the swirls against the girls’ heads before painting them pink, orange, blue, purple, or black at Givenchy’s F/W13 show.
Chanel’s S/S14 show was a take on art fairs, so Peter Philips went bright and bold with graphic eye makeup in a rainbow of colors.
You’ll notice an increasing number of celebrities already trying Prada’s wet hair look on the red carpet, the genius work of Guido Palau.
We’ve already done our part to make sure that the gold brows Pat McGrath created for Dior’s S/S14 show hit the mainstream.
Tom Pecheux used a cotton swab to blur the edges of the lip line for that slightly fuzzy, unpolished look at Marni’s F/W13 show.
Sophia Loren-meets-Italian royalty at Dolce & Gabbana’s F/W13 show thanks to makeup artist Pat McGrath.
Who needs nail art when you can wear nail rings? Another genius idea from Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel’s F/W13 show.
At Dries Van Noten’s S/S14 show, Peter Philips wove metallic thread into the lashes and Sam McKnight mixed hair wax and gold leaf to fill in the models’ parts.
