Runway beauty for less

Our New York Fashion Week correspondent got all the juicy deets about what makeup and hairstyles will be hot this fall/winter 2010. Here’s how you can steal the runway beauty looks for less.

Spring is coming, but the beauty vibes throughout the fall/winter 2010/11 collections at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week have tempted me into near obsession about the cool trends (literally) I want to wear now! Designer after designer previewed classic American beauty, washed into sultry tones of soft metallic, smoky grays and earthy browns, warm burnished corals, true reds and muted, pinky beige. Created to accent, not overpower the fantastic array of textures, and flattering neutrals in the fashions, the makeup, hair and nail focus was on wearable, chic, contemporary style. Almost effortless for the everyday woman to replicate, the dominant trends are quick to apply and work seamlessly for play, office or after hours. If you are on a beauty budget, (and who isn’t these days?) you will love these tricks from the trade! Here are a few tips on how to get the most current runway looks, straight from backstage, without breaking the bank!

Sexy and sultry

A very popular look for eyes this fall/winter will be centered on the sexy. At the Bebe fall/Winter 2010/11 show, featuring the Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian’s new collection, smoldering hues of soft black, charcoal, navy and browns were blended into the browbones, and amplified with layers of mascara, carefully coating every lash! False eyelashes are a MUST and work overtime to open up the eye, giving the smoky effect even more flair! Incorporate this look for yourself with Flirt It Lash Duo ($8) and Smokey Eyes Palette ($36) from, and L’Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara in Black Black ($7.99) at
