Back in March, we showed you the 2013 Autumn Winter fashion shows — always a celeb-filled, dreamy time — to get inspired by the beauty trends that were set to roll out as the weather cooled down. Now that we're officially in Winter, it's time for a refresher course! There were five prominent makeup trends amongst a sea of equally beautiful looks, and the best part is they're all wearbale. From eyes to lips and skin, it's all typically rich and Winter-y — enough to have you greeting the cold season like an old friend. Click through to see the five Winter makeup trends to try now!
Mena Suvari, Ashley Madekwe, and Emily Mortimer provided the stylish star-studded edge to last night's Mulberry dinner at LA's storied Chateau Marmont. Held to fete the label's latest collection, it seemed more than a little appropriate that the attendees also wear some of the pieces right off the Autumn/Winter '13 runway. Suvari wrapped up in a black fur-lined Winter waistcoat, but offset the classic choice with a serious pair of flame-embellished pumps. Revenge's Madekwe paired animal-print trousers (from the Pre-Fall lineup) with an off-white peplum blouse, black ankle-strap Monika Chiang pumps, and a small Suffolk bag, while The Newsroom's Mortimer styled a silky emerald top with a black pencil skirt, textured black Willow clutch, and black heels. Which starlet got her dinner outfit right?
At London fashion week, the hair and makeup sent down the runway is typically much different than that featured at New York fashion week. Although the cities are only separated by the Atlantic, British designers opt for more inventive makeup shades and intricate hair designs. See what beautiful (and sometimes bizarre) things the runways had to offer from London fashion week Fall 2013.

From New York to London, Olivia Palermo has already showcased a vast array of chic ensembles over the Autumn/Winter 2013 Fashion Week season (and we haven't even hit Milan or Paris yet!). Whether she's sitting front row or chatting with designers backstage, the trendsetter has donned everything from mixed-print pairings to sleek suits and sophisticated outerwear, all finished with her signature eclectic polish — and a heavy dose of accessories. Per usual, she supplies a lesson on how to mix downtown and uptown style with ease (even if attending Fashion Week isn't in your immediate plans). Click through for the latest Olivia Palermo look book: Fashion Week edition.
It's hard not to start thinking about our Winter wardrobes during fashion week, even though the sun in still shining and the weather is (mostly) warm in the southern hemisphere. Designers in New York and London have presented a delicious crop of Autumn/Winter wares for 2013, so the Sugar editors are going to strike while the iron's hot and nominate the standout looks that are inspiring some pre-season shopping. Sure, that exact Burberry trench won't hit shelves for another six months — but that won't stop us from getting the look now (and often for less). See! There is an upside to us Aussies shopping out-of-season.
Just like at New York fashion week, celebrities flocked to London fashion week to line the front row and take in the collections. Whether they were front-row staples at their favourite label's show or a designer's muse du jour, their presence was always noted. Flip through to see some of the familiar faces that have been spotted in the front row and beyond.

If Nars products are being used in any fashion week show, there's a good chance the skin will be radiant, luminescent and glossy. It really is no wonder Francois Nars created the Nars Skin range, a skincare line dedicated to lightening and brightening. But skin preparation aside, we have been staring longingly at Erdem's 2013 Autumn Winter London fashion week show and wondering, how do those modules look so damn fresh?
"There’s a touch of Wednesday Addams about her," makeup artist Hannah Murray told Style.com. "The collection is quite dark, so the girl we’re creating is a little ghostly." And by ghostly she also means "moonlit", which is exactly the shade of midnight-walk-on-the-beach we're craving.
To achieve the look, the team backstage used a highlighter called Nars Multiple in Luxor ($64), available in store at Mecca Cosmetica. Apply like you would any magic illuminating product — to all the high points of your face. Oh, and dab a touch on your cupids bow for an outstanding pout.
Wild, crazy, graphic-printed, and eye-catching: Tom Ford's Autumn/Winter '13 collection — the first public runway debut of his eponymous line — is a clearly defined departure from minimalism and a serious rebel yell to all-out decadence. Black-and-white deco prints laid claim to plush fur coats, fitted sheaths with frayed hems, structured aviator jackets, and even thigh-high boots. But it wasn't just a collection of two-toned optics; Ford sent out leopard-print getups alongside bright trousers and even brighter fur puffer jackets. As for the evening gowns? They came slinky, long-sleeved, and adorned with sequined comic-book-like graphic embellishments. With Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel sitting front row and every notable fashion editor in attendance, it's certainly a A/W '13 lineup that packed a punch from start to finish. But isn't that exactly where Tom Ford excels? Take a look at the collection now, and come back soon for our full review.
He may be known for churning out ladylike collections fit for a princess, but don't be fooled. Just a few short years ago, Erdem Moralioglu's signature garden prints, delicate laces, and dreamy colour palettes weren't always so pure and sweet. The darkly gorgeous Autumn/Winter 2013 collection the designer presented in London Monday was a welcome reminder that the designer is still quite adept at mixing prettiness with edge.
Layers of black organza shrouded nearly every look, creating a veiled, surreal effect on paillette-covered dresses, tweed suits, and oversize coats. Silhouettes were as ladylike as ever — high necks, slims skirts — but thanks to seams that had been sliced away and replaced with sheer fabric, there was a newfound sexiness at play as well. As for the floral prints and romantic laces that have become Moralioglu's calling card? Those were plenty present too. They came in shades of lilac, midnight blue, citrine, and inky black, and were decorated with wispy ostrich feathers, matte sequins, and metallic thread — all of which was also veiled in layers of sheer black
Even with New York Fashion Week's star-studded styles fresh on our minds, the London shows supplied us with another round of famous faces (and killer outfits) taking their seats in the British capital. At Burberry Prorsum, we spotted Rosie Huntington-Whiteley working a bold red suit, Kate Beckinsale looking fresh as ever in all white, and Freida Pinto exuding easy glamour in her Burberry peplum top and cropped trousers. What's more, Olivia Palermo stepped out in yet another fashionable front-row ensemble at Antonio Berardi. With London Fashion Week wrapping up tomorrow, join us as we take a front-row look at the best celebrity looks before we head on to Milan. — Additional reporting by Melody Nazarian
