New York Fashion Week Spring 2010- Day 6
NYFW Beauty Round-up Day 6!
Such a great day on the runway today!! The looks were so fun, and I do not think I saw one apricot nude lip or smudgy smokey eye! yay!
The models walking the Dennis Basso runway looked classic, but still very modern. The focus of the makeup is obviously the perfectly defined, deep red lip. The skin is dewy and the under eyes are bright (maybe a little too bright??) It kind of looks like the models have white circles under their eyes, however, from far away it looks really pretty. Eyes are glamourous but not smokey. Lots of lashes and a little bit of smokey grey shadow above the lash line.
Badgley Mischka models also looked very glamourous and classic. The skin is fresh and dewy, with lots of highlight on top of the cheekbone. The eyes are lined with black liquid eyeliner, brought out to a winged tip. Lips are lined and filled in with MAC’s “whirl” lip pencil and the cheeks are kept natural, yet subtlety defined.
Bobbi Brown keyed the Brian Reyes show, which definitely explains why it was so clean and pretty! Beige blush with shimmery nude highlight on top of the cheekbone. Eyes are bare (with maybe a bit of bone colored shadow to give a little definition), and on the lips, a gorgeous red stain.
The Vera Wang show was surprisingly gothic for the Spring season. The models wore pale foundation with little, if any, conturing and blush. The lips are kept the same color as the skin so they blend into the rest of the canvas. Eyes are also very nude, with a hint of peachy beige shadow rimming the eye. The eyebrows are the focal point of this look, which I love! Makeup artists filled in the brows to make them very dark and thick, which looks very dramatic against the pale skin.
The makeup seen at the Rodarte show was somewhat similar to the gothic look of the Vera Wang show, with the pale faces and beige rimmed eyes. Eyebrows were kept light, and once again (as seen in many shows this season), there was no mascara applied to the eyes. The lips are outlined in black, with a burgundy stain inside the middle. Makeup artists drew geometrical, tribal-like designs on the arms of the models. I love this look, it is so strong and powerful!
Betsey Johnson’s presentation of her spring line was outrageous! But honestly, what did you expect?? Her glittery dark eyes and cheekbones are to die for, and SO fun! I love that she breaks the “keep only one feature emphasized” rule. Models are wearing dark dramatic eyeshadow AND burgundy/black lips.
Another fun look! Actually, the look itself is very natural. The lips, cheeks and eyes are bare, but the flash of light aqua across the eyes makes the whole look POP! I love how effortlessly it compliments the clothing as well!
Bobbi Brown’s team of artists worked on the Tibi show. They posted a face chart of the look on their Twitter account today detailing the look. Nude lips, and Bobbi Brown coral pot rouge on the cheeks. On the eyes is a bright yellow shadow under the brow and a hot pink shadow on the lid. The lower lid is lined with a bright green. I couldn’t find any closer pics to really show the makeup but check out the behind the scenes video below! Love this look!
