September 12, 2012

Today may be the calm before the rest of Fashion Month storm, but now that the dizzying madness that is NYFW’s spring 2013 season is finally dying down, it’s time to focus on what really matters: beauty, obviously!

It’ll be months before we can get any of the runway goods in stores (though you can pre-order Jason Wu now, so there’s that). But instead of spending the fall and winter months pining for that ultra-mod Marc Jacobs black-and-white-striped column number, get a taste of spring and jump ahead of the curve by dabbling in the best spring 2013 beauty trends. Instead of trying some of the more daring looks — the bold scalp tape at Alexander Wang should probably stay on the runway, and it’ll be awfully difficult to perfect the slicked-down combover hair at Rodarte — let’s stick to the basic, wear-to-work trends.
