In case you hadn't noticed, fall is officially upon us. So, while we finally get sweater weather, it also means it's time to step up your beauty game with the latest looks from the runway — deep, jewel-toned pouts, shimmery metallic peepers, and glamorous (hat-friendly) 'dos. But, as excited as we get about scoping trends as they come off the catwalk, when it comes to emulating them ourselves, things can get a little dicey. So, how do we manage to look polished and sultry without looking like Gaga on a bad day?
We scored some face time with MAC makeup artist Keri Blair, hairstylist Leah De Ment, and manicurist Dawn Sterling for an insider look at the process behind making the fall runway trends wearable and easy to replicate. (Spoiler alert: There are a lot of metallics and a lot of curls.) Our dream team took us full throttle into the season's hottest trends and gave their insider tips for achieving these otherworldly looks ourselves.
