Get the Look: NYFW Beauty
Fall/winter 2013 Fashion Week may be done, but we’ve been left with a host of inspiration that’s going to tide us over until next time. Smoky eyes, intricate braids, big blow-outs…you could spend a lifetime trying and experimenting with all the looks that graced the runways. But you have a life. And that’s why we’re here…to give you a helping hand and edit down all that info into just a few must-try styles. These were our favorite beauty looks, along with tips to getting them yourself.
Mally Roncal for Mally Beauty at Tracy Reese
Celeb makeup artist Mally Roncal used products from her own line to create the bold smoky eye and "slept-in" lips at Tracy Reese. She actually started with the lips, applying Mally Nourishing Lipstick in French Kiss to each model. Next. she used her Glow Primer and Diamond Unpowder to even out skin tone, finishing with a swirl of blush in Mally's Baby. To create the eye, she applied a black shadow from her City Chick Smokey Eye Kit in Soho Silver from the lash line to the brow tone, then she dipped a clean mascara wand into her Evercolor Silk Long-Wear Eye Defining System in Jet Black (a combo liner-shadow set) and smudged it out toward the outer corners of the eyes. all products available at Mallybeauty.com.
Diane Kendal for Lancôme at Jason Wu
At Jason Wu, artist Diane Kendal applied moody indigo shadow to each model. She used Lancôme Le Krayon Kohl in Purple Dusk, Liner Design Gel EyeLiner in Violet Stylista, and an indigo shadow from the new Jason Wu for Lancôme collection, which debuts this fall. Kendal finished the eye with Hypnôse Drama Mascara in Excessive Black. On the rest of the face, she applied Teint Idole 24H Foundation to create a soft, lightly contoured complexion, and then used a lip brush to apply the same foundation to the lips, creating a pale nude mouth. all products available at Lancome-usa.com.
Gucci Westman for Revlon at J Mendel
Backstage at J Mendel, Revlon’s Global Artistic Director Gucci Westman created a shiny, coppery eye look that felt rich and luxurious—just like the clothes. She applied Revlon PhotoReady Shadow and Primer in Muse (which will be available this fall) and Revlon ColorStay Smoky Shadow Sticks in Atomic and Torch, then lined eyes with ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen in Black. Next, she lined lips with Revlon ColorStay Lipliner in Nude, filling them in with ColorBurst Lip Butter in Fig Jam. _all products available at Walgreens, Target, and drugstores_
OPI at BCBGMaxAzria
OPI artists created what we're betting will be the hottest look for nails this fall…the matte nail. At BCBGMAXAZRIA, they applied OPI lacquer in Black Onyx and then topped with a coat of OPI Matte Nail Envy to create a matte finish with just a touch of dimension. Stay tuned for OPI's brand-new matte top coat, launching this April. Visit OPI.com for details.
Aveda at William Okpo
Heavily influenced by Frida Kahlo, the look at William Okpo included a stunning thick brow and perfect matte orange lips. Janell Gleason, global creative director for Aveda Makeup prepped lips with Aveda Nourish-Mint Renewing Lip Treatment, then applied Nourish-Mint Smoothing Lip Color in Cana and Melochia Bloom, using a brush for a tight, precise line.
