Now that you've officially swapped out your Summer dresses for Fall sweaters, it's time to get your makeup up to date, too. We're taking a look back at all the hair and makeup looks from New York Fashion Week's Fall 2013 shows. Skilled makeup artists and hairstylists created influential looks that are often just as important as the clothing coming down the runways, and they're definitely worth a second look. From twisted ponytails to metallic eyes, get inspired by Fall's most memorable beauty moments.
Although it may have felt like it for awhile now, today is the official first day of Fall. To celebrate the changing season, here are the top 10 fashion trends for Fall 2013. That's right: we're breaking down the standout looks straight from the runways right here. Saint Laurent staged a serious '90s grunge revival — the likes of which Courtney Love would be proud. Shades of blue cascaded down the Prada, Missoni, and Carven catwalks (to name a few); high-impact details took jeweled, feathered, and appliquéd shape at Lanvin, J.Crew, and Tom Ford; and the new It shoe was grounded, thanks to lug soles, ridged platforms, and much chunkier soles. Click on for our comprehensive Fashion Week Fall 2013 trend breakdown to make plotting your shopping lists and wish lists a little easier.

When it comes to autumnal makeup trends, dark, raisin-toned lips are ubiquitous, but at Fall 2013 New York Fashion Week, unexpected bold greens and unabashedly bright blues lit up the runway too. And as for hair, gorgeous ponytails and intricate braids were de rigueur, while nails were painted in geometric shapes and elongating nude tones. As Fall approaches, we can't wait to try all these styles, and neither should you!

New York Fashion Week showgoers are a hearty bunch. Snow, sleet, and wind can't stop them from pulling out all the stops, especially when it comes to their shoes and bags. To wit: last season's batch of street-snapped style pics. It's filled with so many drop-dead gorgeous heels and handbags, one would never know as we march warmly into September's Fashion Week that New York's sidewalks and streets can actually be a slushy, salty mess. Click through to see what we mean.
There's just one long weekend standing between us and the kickoff of New York Fashion Week, which means only days till a totally new season of street style. Are you ready? To help you prep for the onslaught of killer street ensembles headed your way next week, we're warming up with a look back at our favorite styles to hit the tents last season.

Let the Fall planning commence! There are plenty of glorious bags out there this season, but how to pick which one? Just a few we couldn't take our eyes off of at the Fall 2013 shows back in February— including the cobalt colorblocked zip-clutches at Rag & Bone, the oversize totes in ivory and black at Derek Lam, and the hard-cased circle bags at Marc by Marc Jacobs — are right here in our runway bag recap. As to how to narrow it down to one to buy? Well, that's just a little bit harder.
Now that we've covered the best shoes from New York Fashion Week's Fall '13 shows, it's time to focus on those other important outfit-makers: handbags. We saw a large amount of oversize bags at Diane von Furstenberg, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Victoria Beckham (who is steadily helping the tote-as-clutch trend take off), while designers like Jason Wu and Tory Burch showed teeny-tiny clutches in eye-catching jewel tones. Alexander Wang offered up another round of gorgeous leather satchels, and we were simply smitten with the fur-covered clutches we eyed at Proenza Schouler and 3.1 Phillip Lim. Click through now to see over 100 of our favorite bags from New York Fashion Week.
Taking in a runway show is a certain kind of thrill, but being able to click and shop is another sort of retail high. We've been swooning over J.Crew's Fashion Week experience ever since invites first started going out, and there will be another round of hurrahs once the looks are available to purchase online. As we start seriously turning our heads to what we'll be wearing this Fall, the retailer extraordinaire is ready to help us out: shop online now!

J.Crew turned the dial up to 11 for Fall 2013, thanks to creative director Jenna Lyons's deft touch with color and pattern mixing inspired by a recent trip to Marrakech. Neon citron mingled with bubblegum pink, while a clean Winter-white sweater and pants provided a palate cleanser. Accessories were a highlight with sexy lace-up pumps, jeweled minaudières, and piles of colored crystal jewelry. Printed pants continued to look fresh mixed with chunky knits under double-breasted coats with ornate detailing. The crowd was abuzz with excitement — and not just because a fresh-faced Julianne Moore moved among the editors viewing the collection.

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.
