Yes, we know, it's still only February — meaning we have a good six months before the beauty trends we saw at Fashion Week are supposed to appear in real life. We've never really been keen on following rules like that, though. And, who could blame us? When Fashion Week delivers gorgeous hair and makeup, we want to wear it, immediately. It's nearly torture not to.

Luckily, there's no such thing as the Beauty Police. If we want to copy the fall looks from the runways now, no one's going to stop us, right? Many of the looks we're crushing on can totally pass for winter and even early spring — or at least that's what we're going to tell ourselves as we pile on the berry lipstick and the smoky gray-blue eyeshadow.
Ahead, the beauty looks we're going to try, stat. Think chrome nails, peachy lipstick, and our newest favorite braid — it's all just so irresistible.

The Perfect Glow
True to form, the beauty at Michael Kors had a naturally sexy vibe, thanks in no small part to bronzer. The makeup, like the hair, was soft and undone, and we were thrilled to see the gorgeous golden glow on the model's cheeks. It's just what we need to get us through winter.
Makeup artist Dick Page used multiple bronzers to get the look, but we feel confident it can be replicated for real life with just this one. Apply it to the apples of your cheeks with a big, soft brush, and keep the rest of your makeup in the same color family.

The Braid From Heaven
Braids: The gift that keeps on giving, no? This "hair hat," created by hairstyling goddess Odile Gilbert, is a swooping braid around the head that really does look like a hat. We think we've found our go-to style for — well, forever, really.
To infuse the hair with texture and body, and absorb excess oil, the models' hair was sprayed with this Powder Bluff. It's like dry shampoo and hairspray combined, and makes it much easier to craft majestic braid creations.

Just when we thought we were over berry-stained lips, this gorgeous pout showed up at Rebecca Minkoff's show — and we promptly recommitted ourselves to it. Painted on sans lip liner, it has a soft, mod effect that's really working.
Makeup artist Sarah Lucero used a liquid lipstick to create that oxblood stain. Didn't we tell you that liquid lipsticks are the future?

A Peachier Pout
We've all been trained to think that cat-eyes are meant to be worn with red lipstick, but the makeup at Karen Walker proves that this is not the case. The peachy lips worn by the models were the perfect way to update this classic look — and it also makes it perfect for our early spring beauty game.
Makeup artist Benjamin Pucky used three different Lip Tars to stain the models' pouts that perfect peach — Kava Kava, Psycho, and Clockwork. For those of us without time for something like that, we think this one will get the job done just fine.

The mirrored manicure at Delpozo was just about the coolest nail look we saw all week. Talk about modern!
Celebrity nail artist Pattie Yankee used press-on nails for this look, but this nail polish has the same chrome effect.

The makeup at Rodarte was perhaps the most memorable of the week. With a brownish-berry palette that included sparkly statement lips and copious amounts of soft-focus eyeshadow, there's just nothing not to love.
Sadly, most of the products used by James Kaliardos for NARS won't be available until fall. Womp, womp. However, this eyeshadow is a pretty close match to the one that was used. You can apply it with a finger all the way around your eye to replicate the soft, ethereal look.

At Jonathan Simkhai, makeup artist Gucci Westman kept the smoke of this cool-toned smoky eye on the top lids. The result? Eye makeup fit for a wood nymph. Yep, we're all over this one.
This complex, dark, shimmery eyeshadow color is the backbone of the look. We think it's the perfect way to add some oomph back into our current beauty routines.

The Wet Eye
The cold makes our eyes water anyway, so why not start embracing this wet-look liner from Peter Som? It's the perfect way to add some glamour into something that happens to us by accident.
Makeup artist Tom Pecheux used this cult-classic eyeliner on the waterline and through both the upper and lower lashlines to intensify the look. He used MAC's White Pearl Eye Gloss along the lower lashline for that highlight. While MAC's Eye Gloss isn't coming out until fall, the same look can be accomplished with any other eye gloss.
