This polished style seen on the Donna Karan fall runway features a deep side part and super-luscious hair. To get this look, use a large round brush when blow-drying to create tension and smooth your strands. Follow up with a flat iron to tame flyaways, but use it sparingly to avoid losing volume.

This sleek style for Rachel Zoe can also be created with a round brush and flat iron. Mist a light-hold hairspray onto hair after styling to keep locks looking smooth throughout day.

We loved the effortless beauty at the Ralph Lauren runway show, especially these "I woke up like this" waves. For a similar style, twirl small sections of hair around a finger when blow-drying to create natural texture.

The Novis collection featured textured bends, which you can re-create with a 1¾-inch and ¾-inch double-barrel curling iron. Using this unique iron, wrap random sections of hair around the larger barrel and then around the smaller barrel for a naturally waved look.

We are, of course, obsessed with the delicate bling underneath the Rodarte models' eyes, but those carefree locks are amazing too. Take a 1½-inch curling iron and curl random pieces of hair, leaving the roots and ends untouched. Make sure to run your fingers through the waves at the end for a laid-back feel.

We love the idea of a sleek, chic ponytail for fall. Models in the Carolina Herrera show wore slicked-back styles, which can be recreated using a brush to smooth back slightly damp hair into a mid-ponytail. Finish with a strong-hold hairspray to lock this look in place.

Smooth, low ponytails are fashionable, too, as we saw on the Edun runway. To get this style, create a straight side part that is even with the end of an eyebrow and finger-comb hair into a ponytail that rests at the nape of your neck.

Misha Nonoo models wore a sleeker version of the low ponytail at Fashion Week, and we love that this look used bobby pins to secure face-framing layers while giving the 'do an even more tailored feel. Brush straightened hair into a ponytail at the base of the neck, and use hairspray to complete the style.

Say hello to fresh-faced looks inspired by festivals for fall, seen on the models at the Tommy Hilfiger presentation. Keep your face makeup natural with a soft pink blush and lip balm that complement your skin tone. Using a black eye pencil, smudge liner onto the upper lash line for effortlessly sultry eyes.

The makeup worn by Michael Kors's models took a sun-kissed approach to natural-looking beauty. Find a non-shimmery bronzer with a brownish — not orange — undertone, and dust it across the areas of the face that are naturally hit by the sun.

For the no-makeup makeup look seen during the Jason Wu show, use a light CC cream to even out your complexion and a bit of bronzer to add warmth to the cheekbones. Highlight the eyes with natural-looking mascara on the top lashes, but leave the bottom eyelashes untouched.

Models for Charlotte Ronson wore dark eye makeup balanced with a nude lip — a classic nighttime look we love. To complement the intensity of the eyes, use an eyebrow pencil to fill in your brows.

Taking this trend up a notch, the Libertine show featured extremely smoky eyes that remind us of Avril Lavigne. Though you may not create a look quite this severe, do remember to keep everything else simple when creating a dark eye makeup look.

At the DKNY show, natural makeup with a wow factor was the theme. For this eye-catching look, use liquid liner to line the area near the eyes.

We love this feathery-lash, bold-lip combo from the Fatema Fardan presentation. To get this fall-approved look, use individual false eyelashes to add natural volume to your lash line. Then choose a berry-colored lip stain to create a look that will last all day with few touch-ups.

Taylor Swift isn't the only one who can rock the classic red lip flawlessly; models on the Phillip Lim runway proved that. Make sure your bold lipstick stays in place by first lining the lips with a lip liner in a coordinating color.

Taking an edgier approach, the vampy makeup at the Marc Jacobs show featured matching eye shadow and plum-colored lips. To avoid looking clownish, keep your face makeup subtle.
