We’re finally starting to get a taste of fall weather—at least over here on the East Coast—and after a sweltering summer, we’re all for it. But with all of the exciting things to hit the runway at New York Fashion Week the past few days, we’re already dreaming about next spring. On top of all the glorious spring collections presented by the designers, we also saw some of the best hair and makeup ever, brought to us by top global talents.

When it comes to runway beauty, designers tend to go one of two ways—bare, clean skin and natural hair, to let the clothes truly shine and embrace a model’s natural beauty, or all-out, with truly breathtaking, out-of-this-world looks. No matter what end of the spectrum, we did notice a handful of cohesive trends emerge.

Below, five beauty trends to hit the New York Fashion Week runways that we’re fully embracing now. Why wait for spring?

Electric shock
Once again, neon makeup ruled the NYFW runways. This time, however, we saw much more than just your typical swipe or wash of vibrant pigment. At Opening Ceremony, we saw rainbow stripes, while Di$count Universe served us some intense cat eyes. At Chromat, we not only saw bold washes of color, but each look was also offset by neon spots strategically placed around the eyes.
