We like to think of every new season as a fresh start—a time to reinvent our look. What better way to do this than to take a new beauty trend and make it your own? With fall right around the corner, look no further than the fall/winter ‘16 runways for your inspiration.
With the shows haven taken place last February and March, we’ve been anticipating autumn’s arrival so that we can try these incredible beauty looks we saw for ourselves on the catwalks. From whimsical to goth-inspired, this fall's trends are all about rich, colorful pigments and bold lines.
We decided to take our favorite ones and translate them in our own, very wearable way. Click through the gallery below to see the results.

Big, piecey lashes à la Twiggy were all the rage on the fall runways. Pile on that mascara, and don't worry about each lash being perfectly separated—a little clumping is okay. Expert tip: Try adding some false lashes before layering on mascara, using either individual lashes or cutting a strip into sections.
