While New York Fashion Week provides us with insight on what fashion and beauty trends we’ll be all about the upcoming season, we can also always count on a few oddball moments to take place that really catch our eye. Those moments often involve beauty; we're talking hair, makeup, nails, or all of the above.

Runways shows are where beauty experts let their most creative ideas take root and come to life. From the quirky and cute, to the flat-out weird, there were definitely some noteworthy looks on the spring 2017 runways—like a slew of models covered in Vaseline and a modern update on the beehive, for example.

We kept a close eye on all of the New York Fashion Week happenings last week and rounded up 18 of our favorite moments that will inspire you to take your daily beauty routine beyond the norm. Of course, not all of these looks are easily translatable into real life. It may be hard to pull off carnival face paint and be taken seriously at work, but we would definitely give a bold colored brow a try.
