Feb. 12, 2014 at 11:42 AM ET

New York Fashion Week Fall / Winter 2014 isn't over just yet and we're already spotting new and interesting beauty trends on the runway. Thankfully, these ones aren't too difficult to replicate at home (we're looking at you, French fishtail braid) and you don't have to be Kate Moss to pull them off.

From chic ballerina buns to the sexy liquid cat-eye look, we’ve got your hair and makeup musts for the upcoming season:

Violet eye
I’m traditionally on the fence about anything in the purple family when it comes to cosmetics. (Nobody wants to look bruised or sleepy, right?) However, these looks feel glamorous and very Elizabeth Taylor, making them timeless and crucial additions.

Slicked back bun
I am loving the slicked back bun. Wear it high or wear it low, this easy hairstyle shows off cheekbones and keeps hair in line in the windy winter!

Bold black liner
Whether you are going to work, running errands, or out to dinner, the liquid cat-eye literally always looks cool. The runway agrees.

The side part
I couldn’t be more pleased that the side part is back. It’s the perfect hair solution for the not-so-symmetrical face. We can’t all be an Olsen twin but we can fake it.

Berry-stained lip
Fall trends are packing a fruity punch. Berry stained lips were everywhere this season. Finally a pout that compliments pale winter skin.

Golden braid 
The real show stopper at the Mara Hoffman was the golden braid tip, making it an instant hit. I didn’t even know I had to have this in my life until Mara’s show came along. What you need to know? Spray the small bottom part of your braid with gold hairspray, and just like that — you have the best hairstyle possible. View the full tutorial here.
