Even if you weren't in New York City enjoying the chic (and crazed) moments of Fashion Week Spring 2014, you can still get an insider look at what went down. We were out spotting the newest trends in hair and makeup from backstage at top shows like Jason Wu, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Betsey Johnson, and Rebecca Minkoff. Look closely, and you might see the exclusive products that have yet to be released, or at the very least you'll be inspired for your Spring beauty look. Make sure to check out POPSUGAR Beauty on Instagram [1] to see all our coverage.

We don't even want to know how long it took the CND team to prepare these nails for The Blonds show.

The eye makeup backstage at The Blonds was a rainbow of color.

Manicurist Katie Hughes took time out of her busy Fashion Week schedule to chat with editors.

We stopped by the Anna Sui beauty bar backstage before the show. Check out those sunglasses, coming soon to stores near you.

Another half-moon manicure [2], as seen on the Milly catwalk.

Teenagers from Mars inspired the Jeremy Scott Spring 2014 collection, but this purple eye makeup was more '50s with a twist.

The barely there makeup at Narciso Rodriguez was a moment in minimalism.

Want to know the secret to getting the look at Proenza Schouler? It's all about this MAC blush.

The lip at Milly was achieved with an orange-red blush mixed with lip pencil to get a gradient effect.
