This romantic renaissance look was one of the best beauty combos at NYFW by far. A deep wine-soaked lip with a glossy gold eye is so pretty for fall and the soft, yet constructed, braided updo is the epitome of sophisticated casual.

Get the look: Try Stila Long Wear Lip Color in 'Daring' and Jewel Eye Shadow in 'Citrine.'

James Kaliardos for NARS Cosmetics created the look for the Rodarte show, which he described as: "Makeup that looked like it had been applied on the beach—slightly messy as if the mascara fell onto the face." Excuse us while we head to a sandy spot to apply our eyeshadow now.

Get the look: Try NARS 'Coconut Grove' Single Eyeshadow, 'Mambo' Eyeliner Pencil, and Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara.

3. Pink Studded Nails at Kate Spade

Pin straight strands with a little lift at the root and electric blue-lined lids covered the catwalk at Rebecca Minkoff. This is the kind of day-to-night beauty look you want to wear to a weekend brunch and then out to an awesome party later...or at least we do.

Get the look: Flat iron your hair from the temples down and tease the top for a little volume. To keep it looking smooth, apply TRESemme Smooth and Silky No Frizz Shine Spray. Line your eyes with Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in 'Indigo.'

To complement Jenny Packham's gorgeous gowns inspired by the mid-17th century, TRESemmé Stylist Jeanie Syfu created a simple, chic ponytail tied with a silk ribbon. The look kind of reminds us of a grownup version of our kindergarten hair days, which is why we LOVE IT.

Get the look: Applying TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Blow Dry Lotion throughout strands and TRESemmé Platinum Strength Strengthening Heat Protect Spray to the ends. Blow dry with a Mason Pearson brush for a straight finish. Next, create a part down the center and then section hair in two parts, separating across the back of the head from ear to ear. Gently tease the underneath section and along the horizontal line from ear to ear. Loosely pull hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck, letting hair fall out around the face. Secure with an elastic and finish with a ribbon.

Lancôme National Makeup Artist Tarek Abbas created a dark eye with a lace accent stamp for Monika's cool girl next door presentation, but the best part of the look was the pop of green liner on the inner rim. Green is the new black.

It was all about sleek low buns with a twist at Peter Som. Christopher Dove, Wella Professionals lead stylist, created the look to be both strong and minimal, and the result was beyond chic. Now this is a 'do we want to rock all the time.

Get the look: Part and separate strands, then section hair in the back by pulling the back half into a tight, low ponytail at the nape of the neck. Apply hairspray and use a finishing brush to smooth the surface so there are no bumps. Twist the ponytail like a rope around the base to create a knotted bun and secure with hairpins. The two pieces in the front of the head and each side need to be twisted in the direction toward the head and then wrapped around the bun before securing in place, making sure to hide the pin. Rub a small amount of Wella Professionals Sculpt Force Flubber Gel between your fingertips and over any flyaways. Finish with Wella Professionals Shimmer Delight Shine Spray.

This earthy nail sprinkled with glitter was the creation of celebrity manicurist (and Beyonce's go-to girl) Lisa Logan and one of our absolute faves.

Get the look: Lisa used Rihanna's personal fave, Red Carpet Manicure 'Black Stretch Limo' and brand new RCM gel shades 'Diva In Disguise' and 'Always Slate Never Early' to paint each talon. Then she dipped each tip in fine cut glitter that can be found in RCM Gems & Jewels Nail Art Kits.

"The inspiration for this look was a 1940's-era woman, an uptown girl, but then we made it more fun, and thus more Marc by Marc. We didn't want it to feel symmetrical or too perfect, the backbrushing gives a teased effect, a little crazy," said Guido, Redken Creative Consultant.

Get the look: Apply Redken guts 10 root targeted volumizing spray foam from roots to ends and blow-dry hair. When dry, make a deep side part, then pin curl hair in small sections, alternating with a 1-inch curling iron and 1 1/4 inch iron, pinning each curl to the the head with setting pins. Leave to set and when the hair has cooled unpin each curl. Run fingers lightly through curls, then gently brush them out for more volume. Backbrush the top front section and then sweep the section across the forehead and secure in place with a bobby pin. Finish by spraying the entire style with Redken fashion work 12 versatile working spray.
