The best beauty trends of Spring 2012 fashion week

Now that Spring 2012 Fashion Week has come to a close, of course it’s time for us to do a roundup of our favorite beauty trends! And while we’ve still got some time until we really see these trends coming at us full force–we’re just heading into fall, after all–we’re definitely excited about what’s in store.

While we typically think of red lips as something for fall, we were definitely excited to see this emerging as a strong trend for spring. Designers including Anna Sui and Jason Wu showed super dark crimson pouts with their collections.

When temperatures heat up, our hair goes up. It’s as simple as that. But we’re loving the lower ponytail shown on the runway by multiple designers, including Derek Lam and Reed Krakoff.

Since celebs like Lauren Conrad have been experimenting with shocking hair colors, it was only a matter of time before it showed up on the runway! We’re loving the bright sherbet hues seen at Narciso Rodriguez and Thakoon.

On the other end of the lip spectrum were pouts that were glossy and just a shade darker than the natural color of the lip. We love the neutral lips seen at Carolina Herrera and Rodarte.

The biggest nail trend of Fashion Week was actually that anything goes! But we did see a lot of pale grey nails, namely at Rag & Bone and Narciso Rodriguez. This shade goes with everything and is a statement maker without going over the top.
