Look 6: Soft Pink Lips and Healthy Glowing Skin(NARS)

NYFW Fall Winter

One of my fav looks.

  • INSPIRATION: Disco-punk. “This is a youthful, rebellious look that exudes a strong sense of confidence. Energy radiates within the girls through their makeup with eyes that have a bit of a rock and roll feel,” said designer Phillip Lim whose in…spiration stemmed from an image of Blondie’s Debbie Harry.
  • LOOK: “This look has many layers,” said NARS lead artist Lisa Butler. “The eyes are punchy and edgy while the skin was kept healthy and glowing. The lips are a soft, sheer pink for the elegant punk-rock princess style that Phillip was looking for.”

*Douceur Blush (NEW for Fall 2010)

Look 7: Contoured faces (MAC)

NYFW Fall WInter 2010

Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury for MAC Cosmetics created an “Avatar”-inspired warrior princess look, with a dramatically contoured face. She applied a light brown shadow across the eyelid, pulling the color out to the sides for an almost feline effect. Shadow also ran down the length of the nose. Cheek bones were contoured with brown tones as well, and amplified with shimmering white highlighter under the eye and in the inner corners of the eyes. She brushed brows with clear gel and applied brown mascara in the shade Burnt Umber on the top lashes. Lips were bare.

Hairstylist Peter Gray for Redken continued the theme, creating two distinct hair styles for the show, as the designers showed both gowns and their diffusion line Mark & James. Gray described the first style as a princess look. A panel of hair was tightly pulled back on both sides and the top was kept loose with some height. The strands were then twisted in a rope design at the back of the head. To create the look, he misted Layer Lift 07 into the hair to give it a base [the key to prepping hair for multiple styles, said Gray] which he worked through using a blow-dryer. He also applied self-adhesive hair extension down the back of the hair. For the second look, referred to as “warrior princess,” the updo was let loose, and stylists worked feverishly to straighten the long strains, leaving the front of the hair as is. “The tension of the hair at sides of the face give a nice eye lift,” said Gray.

Nails were equally strong and futuristic, painted in Marquee Moon from Deborah Lippmann collection. Manicurist Deborah Lippmann described the color as “futuristic, sequins silver,” as there were tiny silver sequins embedded in the sparkling formula.

Look 8: Blow Dried volumized hair

  1. aah! look 6! don’t we all aspire to look like that on a daily basis? i do.
    personally speaking, blush applied a teeny tiny bit darker than normal with clear, glossy lips looks foxy, even for daily wear.
    to all those girls who shy away from blush, DON’T!

    1. Seriously, 6 is so fresh and glow look. Wish we could look like this every single day and not tell the word the secret of our beauty. 😀

      Women shy away from blush, huh?They must talk to us. 😛 How was your holi?

  2. squeaky clean holi. was totally not in the mood to even let anyone put a dot of colour on my face. but met the bf then a dear, close friend to have a long chat.

    1. I played HOli twice- once before taking a btah and once right after taking bath. Played badly with grease, pakka colour, varnish, balloons and what not. 😛 Thankfully i had nicely oiled my face and busy so all of it came out nicely. This year was my first holi with hubby, last year we were sipping beer on the beaches of Goa. 😛 Had blast coz it was only closed ones and nighbours around. NO perverts. 😛

        1. Lolzz!! I got married last year only and yes I do brink beer at times. 😛 Apart from gin with lime, that’s the only alcohol I like . 😛

          1. aah so you were very recently the blushing bride!! don’t know when that day’s gonna come for me! have a loong way to go. but when that day comes, you’ll get mail! 😉

            1. Aww!! That’s so sweet. I also want to be a part of your pre wedding shopping days. 😛 LolzZ!! You give me an offer and I’ll jump at it and ask for more. 😀 *blink blink*
