The Best Makeup Looks from Fall 2013

Let’s be honest. Some seasons, runway makeup is more wacky than wearable. This was not one of those seasons. Instead, over-the-top creations were put aside in favor of time-honored techniques recast with a fresh spin. Cat-eye liner was flirty, shapely, and colorful at shows like Monique Lhullier, Michael Kors, and Jason Wu. Lips were red, of course, but either ultra-matte (Nina Ricci) or wet glossy (Marc by Marc Jacobs). For those who want to make a quieter, cozier statement, the rich wine-hued lips at Louis Vuitton or Derek Lam answered. On the lids, makeup artists pulled-out a range of unexpected colors in classic applications: Sculpted pumpkin shadow at BCBG and Prabal Gurung, a diffuse wash of prune at Nanette Lepore and Giles, and full-on glitter, mixed into the shadow at Donna Karan, and glued along the lashes, liner-style at Chanel.

At Christian Dior (left) and Jason Wu, makeup artists added a flash of color, turning to icy blue and violet, respectively. Meanwhile at Salvatore Ferragamo, Michael Kors, Lanvin and Tracy Reese, liner was nowhere to be found. Instead, diffused almond shapes were blended on with a range of smudgy dark shadows.
