Hot off the runways - hair and beauty trends from NYFW!

As the Fall 2011 looks emerge from the New York Fashion Week runways, we reveal some backstage hair and beauty trends...

While feathers, masculine tailoring and primary block-colouring, and midi-length are ruling the New York Fashion Week runways, beauty goes grunge-glam at Altuzarra, Goldie Hawn-inspired at Philosophy by Alberta Ferretti, with metallic feline eyes at Derek Lam.

EMERGING TRENDS FROM NY

Autumn/winter skin is kept fresh and minimal, with a healthy glow and plenty of highlighting. For eyes and lips the trend emerging is all about the statement feature: winged eyes or poppy pouts.

At Derek Lam, Tom Pecheux for Estee Lauder created metallic feline eyes balanced out by nude-hued lips (see top left), while at Altuzarra for MAC (see middle left) he kept the feline winged-out eye but went much darker with the lips to create what MAC make-up artist Lynsey Alexander calls "A full-on glamazon biker rock chic."

Eyes were a key at Philosophy by Alberta Ferretti as Lynsey created a Goldie Hawn-inspired 60s look with a doe-eyed effect created through plenty of mascara.

Meanwhile, Odile Gilbert for Aveda at Jason Wu (see bottom left) created stunning autumnal gilded gold-leaf twists, while Antoinette Beenders for Aveda at Christian Siriano went for: "Sinuous and matte—beautiful waves that are neither too beachy nor too glam. It’s pretty in the simplest way."

With plenty more show to come, and a gorgeous array of different looks emerging, don't forget to return to InStyle for all the latest updates!
