As New York Fashion Week comes to a close, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect in terms of trends come Fall 2019, both in fashion and in beauty. But if there's one thing we especially love about runway beauty trends, it's that we don't have to wait until next season to recreate our favorites. Unlike clothing and accessories, all of the tools we need are accessible now.
And, Fall 2019's runways were brimming with inspiration for some truly swoon-worthy looks. From playfully artsy eye makeup and expertly executed "messy hair" to modern updates on the smoky eye and ladylike chignon, there was a lot to love.
Below, six trends from this week's Fall 2019 shows that you can get to copying, stat.

The smoky eye is back and better than ever, this time finished off with a glistening glaze for a look that's sultry, yet still cool. From Tom Ford's intense smolder to Noon by Noor's reddish-brown, we're totally into this glossy take on the classic look.

Forget sleek, glass hair. For Fall 2019, the idea is for it to look like you didn't do your hair at all–and, if anything, roughened it up a bit. Fluffy, brushed-out crimping and messy-yet-polished frizzy flyaways were all the rage on this week's runways.

For those who don't want to go the messy route, fear not: Elegant, ladylike hairstyles also made appearances across the runways. Mostly seen with a slicked-down middle part, these sleek, low chignons and buns are the chicest way to keep your hair in place.

A handful of designers went for more artful, playful looks. Whether a swipe of graphic white and purple liners at 3.1 Phillip Lim—a cool, yet minimalist way to wear liquid liner—to blotchy, splattered rainbows at Collina Strada, the runways were alive with graphic and pigment-packed beauty.

Forget a lengthy '70s bang, for Fall 2019, it's all about the short '90s crop. Whether models' own or makeshift via hair extensions, super-short baby bangs ruled the runways.
