The 11 best beauty looks we've spotted at Fashion Week in Sydney.

Now Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia is in full swing, our mental shopping cart is close to overflowing.

There are just two problems. Firstly, our bank accounts are sadly nowhere near as full; and secondly, there’s only so many places you can feasibly wear a gold lamé Maticevski ballgown.

Fortunately, there have been some killer hair and beauty looks sent down the runway for us to swoon over instead. Even better? They’re totally wearable. Here are the 11 we’ll be trying this weekend.

1. Red lips

After seasons of obsessing over orange and pink shades, Rebecca Vallance has joined Taylor Swift in reminding us just why that red lip is such a classic.

Paired with glowing skin and just-brushed brows, it’s the best kind of striking. Add a tiny dust of highlighter to your cupid’s bow for extra pop.

2. Glitter

Your standard ponytail? Gone, dead and buried — we're all about the glitter dipped updo as seen at the Swarovski show now. Practical? Maybe not, but so very sassy.

3. Natural brows

The thought of spending hours styling your hairy caterpillars into 'on fleek' Instagram brows fill you with horror? Us too, which is why we're all about these natural grown-out eyebrows at Yeojin Bae.

4. Plum lips

The fishing line we'll leave, but the plum lip and metallic eye combo seen as Zhivago is a winner.

5. Bouncy hair

7. Sweaty-looking skin

The quickest hack for dewy skin? Embracing your post-exercise glow (and no, not the red-faced expression we have just after spin class).

8. Quiffed ponytail

Looking to update your ponytail game? It's all about that crown height.

9. The new smokey eye

Dark and broody with a sneaky stripe of silver, only revealed when the eyes are shut. Brilliant.

10. Centre part

Yep, part it and slick it back.

11. Messy hair

Not a dab hand when it comes to fancy hairstyles? No worries - backstage at Maticevski, it was the messier the better.
