Color Rules for Fashion Week's Top Painted Faces

The new smoky eye at Preen.

Last week, beauty, like the clothes, was a burst of color. Hair and makeup was anything but demure, erring on the side of attention grabbing, from the drag queen face paint at the Barbie Collection to the eighties-inspired looks at Marc Jacobs. Last year's blue-eyeliner trend disappeared in favor of fire-orange lines at Derek Lam and Vena Cava, as did the black-gloss trend, which got traded in for gray-matte lipstick at Rodarte and Doo.Ri. And while color is in, just remember that you don't have to paint your face with the entire Sephora store — fall's looks focus on the eyes or the lips, but not both at once.
