Now that Spring 2012 Fashion Week has come to a close, of course it’s time for us to do a roundup of our favorite beauty trends! And while we’ve still got some time until we really see these trends coming at us full force—we’re just heading into fall, after all—we’re definitely excited about what’s in store.

While we typically think of red lips as something for fall, we were definitely excited to see this emerging as a strong trend for spring. Designers including Anna Sui and Jason Wu showed super dark crimson pouts with their collections.

When temperatures heat up, our hair goes up. It’s as simple as that. But we’re loving the lower ponytail shown on the runway by multiple designers, including Derek Lam and Reed Krakoff.

Since celebs like Lauren Conrad have been experimenting with shocking hair colors, it was only a matter of time before it showed up on the runway! We’re loving the bright sherbet hues seen at Narciso Rodriguez and Thakoon.

On the other end of the lip spectrum were pouts that were glossy and just a shade darker than the natural color of the lip. We love the neutral lips seen at Carolina Herrera and Rodarte.

The biggest nail trend of Fashion Week was actually that anything goes! But we did see a lot of pale grey nails, namely at Rag & Bone and Narciso Rodriguez. This shade goes with everything and is a statement maker without going over the top.

jessica-stroup-rachel-bilson-nina-dobrev-09142011.jpgAt a recent event for the CW network, Jessica Stroup, Rachel Bilson and Nina Dobrev (pictured above left to right) all showed up with similar eye makeup. Each girl wore bronze tones in their crease that accentuated their beautiful eyes. This is a statement best left to the lower lid or crease and should be paired with lighter neutral tan or cream shadows surrounding the crease and brow to offset the richer color.

I don’t worry about fine lines and wrinkles — and it’s not because I’m too young for such things! For one thing worrying causes fine lines and wrinkles so that would be counterproductive, and for another I know Say Yes To Blueberries has me covered.

I keep a pack at my desk, one in my gym bag and one at home to ensure I’m never without my secret weapon.

NY Fashion Week is upon us! We’re loving some of the beauty looks that have been featured this week. First up is the hair that Didier Malige for Frederic Fekkai created for Prabal Gurung.

Malige created a bold and sexy ’90s-inspired look that perfectly complemented Gurung’s neo feminist collection. The confident and sporty look was both feminine and tough, with models looking like they just splashed water on their faces after a workout.

Want to get the look? Begin by blowdrying your hair straight and use a flat iron if necessary. Then mist water throughout the top half of your head before applying Fekkai Coiff Strong Hold Volume Mousse to wet hair for extra hold. Create a center part with a fine comb and comb mousse through the hair for a slicked-back look. Get additional shine with Fekkai Advanced Brilliant Glossing Sheer Shine Mist, use the low setting on a blowdryer to set the look, and then leave the bottom portion of the hair dry. Finish by spraying with Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray.
