One of my favorite makeup trends to emerge on the Spring 2011 runways is the “temple to cheek” blush, spotted everywhere from Madrid to Milan. In most cases, makeup artists applied color in a “C” shape from the model’s temples to the apples of their cheeks, and blended well for a seamless transition. Love it!!
At the Moschino show in Milan, models wore orange blush that not only was applied in the C shape, but was also blended onto the eyelids for a monochrome look.
I love the rosy pink blush at Christian Siriano’s show in New York. This is probably my favorite variation of the trend.
Richard Nicoll’s show during Londons Fashion Week featured models wearing an ochre colored blush applied just above the temples, and around onto the cheeks.
Edition by Georges Chakra showed a much more subdued and wearable version of the trend.
Hot pink was the color of choice on Lydia Delgado’s runway in Madrid.
What Do You Think of the C Shaped Blush Trend?

Hair guru, Guido, created the amazing hair spotted at Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2011 show. I can’t get over how intricate and incredible this looks! Allure magazine reported that hairstylists working behind the scenes used over 80 cans of hairspray to get the model’s runway ready!!!!
Pop star, Ke$ha, recently shared with MTV about her glitter coated life. This literally sounds like my worst nightmare, and I’m getting anxiety just thinking about it.
“Right before I go onstage, I lather my body in baby oil and cover my entire body with a shield of glitter. Because it just pops! It just looks great! It’s really hard to get the glitter off. I’ve just given up. I’ve accepted that it will just be there. It’s in all my suitcases, it’s usually in my food, in my drinks. Sometimes when I pee, it’s in the toilet. I don’t know how it got there.”

With all of the full eyebrows on the runway this season, I am loving YSL’s bleached brow (seen a few days at Paris Fashion Week). Looks amazing with the burgundy lip!

Last Summer we reported on the Orange Lip Trend taking over the runway, fashion ads and celebrity puckers. Well, it’s not going away any time soon! This season’s runways have been filled with orange lips. From neon, to glossy, to matte, the makeup artists working the shows have given us every type of orange lip we could ever dream about

The rock and roll inspired hair and makeup at Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring 2011 show is to die for. I’m loving the Joan Jett wigs and imperfect eye makeup!
The models walking in Christian Dior’s Spring 2011 show were given a modern and colorful 1950′s inspired look. Bright colored shadows were applied to the eyelids, stopping right at the crease, along with winged liner and very full brows.
Key Makeup Artist: Pat McGrath
