It’s not just about the fashion anymore at Fashion Week, but also the hair and makeup coming down those runways. In fact, the New York Times did a feature on the growing presence of beauty bloggers backstage at the shows. Just as fashion houses debut their fall collections, makeup brands are too premiering their wares launching later this year. I sifted through a ton of runway footage and have determined that NARS wins Fashion Week for me. While makeup on the runway doesn’t always translate into the real world, NARS created several wearable looks that have me digging through my makeup drawers to find these staple shades.
At the Naeem Khan show, NARS lead artist used one of my favorite duo eye shadows in Alhambra. Lips were muted out with concealer and Alhambra was also used at the bow of the lip as a highlighter. The shimmery pale gold and pink are so eye-opening and when blended together, create the most awesome rosy gold.
At Helmut Lang, the look was all about glowy skin and a neutral eye. Eyelids were dewy, courtesy of the new for spring Cythere Velvet Gloss Pencil (a metallic rose gold) layered with All About Eve, the perfect flesh-toned duo of neutrals.
Is this not the sweetest look yet? For the Tanya Taylor show, NARS did a more dramatic cat eye with Caprates Eyeliner Stylo. My everyday go-to eyeshadow is NARS Abyssinia, which was used as a highlight here. Lips were neutral with Belle du Jour Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and skin was brightened with the Copacabana Illuminator.
