Pale blush tones swept the spring 2013 runways during New York Fashion Week, which ends Thursday.

As the beauty correspondent for Ulta this season, I primarily focused on hair, makeup and nails - and how fashion plays a major role in beauty trends - when I hit up the shows this past week.

I always love attending Jill Stuart's show, and this season, I adored her use of blush and other soft tones in her collection, paired with subtly darker rose-colored eye makeup.

Meanwhile, at Badgley Mischka, celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippman brought back the 80s staple mauve on the models' nails.

At alice + olivia's presentation, designer Stacey Bendet's frocks got a fun kick from pale-green nails.

In terms of eye color, at alice + olivia, Stila has a stay-all-day color that was used in periwinkle, black and white on the lids of the models.

Feminine, pretty and demure is clearly the woman to channel for spring 2013.

Now, even though the runways showcased spring's hottest styles, we New Yorkers still have fall to think about!

For the autumn season, I'm going with red for my nails, and shades of dark-blue with a touch of gold, which I'll tone down once the flowers bloom.
