From the wearable to the unconventional

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.

It marks her third duet with Nas

Here are some words that I never expected to read or hear again: There is a new song with Amy Winehouse. But here we are in 2019, and Salaam Remi has granted me a wish. On Valentine's Day, the Grammy-nominated producer and frequent Winehouse collaborator (also responsible for hits like Miguel's "Come Through & Chill") released "Find My Love" which features rapper Nas and that powerful and haunting voice that I have come to love and cherish so dearly.

Representatives for Remi said that the Winehouse vocals were from an old jam session the two had. Remi was a producer on both of Winehouse's albums, Frank and Back to Black. "Find My Love" marks the third time Winehouse and Nas have done duets under the direction of Remi. They were previously heard together on "Like Smoke," a single from her 2011 posthumous album Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures, and "Cherry Wine" from Nas' 2012 album Life Is Good. Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011, before they could complete production on her third album. My heart is still broken about it as she is by far my favorite artist.

"Find My Love" is set to appear on Remi's Do It for the Culture 2, a collection of songs curated by him. Check it out, below.

"In the midst of chaos there's opportunity"

Following the travesty that was Fyre Festival, Ja Rule wants to take another stab at creating a music festival. Good luck getting that off the ground.

On Thursday, the rapper spoke to TMZ, where he revealed that he was planning to relaunch Icon, an app used to book entertainers, which is similar to Billy McFarland's Fyre app. He told the outlet that he wanted to create a festival similar to Fyre to support it.

"[Fyre Festival] is heartbreaking to me. It was something that I really, really wanted to be special and amazing, and it just didn't turn out that way, but in the midst of chaos there's opportunity, so I'm working on a lot of new things," he says. He then gets into the fact that he wants to form a music festival. "[Fyre] is the most iconic festival that never was... I have plans to create the iconic music festival, but you didn't hear it from me."

Ja Rule actually doesn't seem to think he is at all responsible for what came from Fyre Fest, claiming in a Twitter post that he was "hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hood winked, led astray." Even if that's his feeling, he should realize that anyone involved with Fyre shouldn't ever try their hand at music festivals again.
