When you think about runway hair and makeup looks, what words come to mind? 

Over-the-top? Avant guard? Wacky? Inspirational? Impossible-to-pull-off? Scary? 

It's OK, you can admit that you don't find them wearable, pretty or feminine -- we won't tell the fashionistas. 

But before you go and totally write off the runway as a source of inspiration for looks that are ones you can create without looking like a drag queen, we'd like to share these hair and makeup photos with you. All of these beauty looks were seen on the Fall 2011 Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week catwalks. Yup, it's true. 

See the high fashion hair and makeup looks you can actually wear now. 

So many of the looks we saw were not only gorgeous, but also ones we knew we'd be able to recreate without having to seriously water them down. What's even better? We wouldn't need a backpack full of products to create them, either. 

From sexy smoky eyes, to pretty twisted updos, we gathered up all of the prettiest and most wearable looks from the runways to bring them to you. Some of the looks are perfect for evening while others are suitable for every day. Check them out and then learn step-by-step how to copy them -- exactly. Your friends will be so impressed (maybe even a little intimidated) when they compliment you on your fabulous hair or makeup -- especially when you tell them the look was seen on the runway.

The look: A nearly bare face paired with stand out red lips 

How to get it:
Step 1: Even out your skin tone with your favorite foundation. Looking for a new one? Consult this list of thebest foundations according to our editors. Camouflage dark circles or spots with concealer and set with powder, which MAC artist Nadine Luke says will make your makeup look flawless for an extended amount of time along with locking everything in place. 

Step 2: Sweep a flesh-colored eyeshadow on your lids and finish off your eyes by applying a coat of black mascara. 

Step 3: Using a lip brush, apply a matte red lipstick (find the best red lip makeup for your skin tone here). Blot your lips after applying the first coat, and then apply a second for long lasting wear.

I'll post somemore later
