5 Major Beauty Trends To Try Now

We think it’s safe to say that the hairstylists and makeup artists working Fashion Week are riding high right now. Finally, after countless seasons of no-makeup makeup and #wokeuplikethis hair, they got to work their magic and turn out some serious looks.

The eyeliner was in-your-face, the lips were impossible to ignore, and the hairstyles were all about curls, curls, curls. Even the looks of our youth (pigtails, anyone?) got edgy updates — and we relished the drama of it all. But somehow, the hair and makeup still seemed wearable. We have a feeling you’ll be seeing (and rocking) these looks before the fall 2016 fashion even hits stores.

Ahead, check out the top beauty trends of the season.

Power-Goth Lips
No, these aren't your typical berries and plums for fall. The latest crop of dark lip shades has some serious strength — and we love that. Come fall, we plan on wearing the hell out of this two-toned look at Creatures of the Wind.

Polished Curls
Buh-bye, sleek blowouts and smooth waves. This season, hairstylists were pulling out foam rollers and tiny curling irons to define coils. Curly bangs, like the ones we spotted backstage at Diane von Furstenberg's '70s-inspired show, were commonplace — and we're not mad about it.

Early-Aughts Liner
Remember your first bout with eyeliner? When you'd simply drag a kohl pencil along your water- and lashlines and call it a day? If the fully rimmed eyes at shows like 3.1 Phillip Lim were any indication, it's time for a comeback.

Double-Dutch Hair
When it came to styles this season, two was always better than one. At shows like Michael Kors, stylists were creating pigtails — whether they were ponytails, braids, or anything in-between.

Graphic Liner
Sure, you may not be able to wear this crazy, artsy liner to work. Call us nuts, but we think it would look rad at a party. Or, you know, on Halloween.
