ALL EYES ON NYFW!

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

New York Fashion Week was characterized by bold fashions and even bolder eyes.  Makeup artist, Pat Montelongo, went for glamour at Tom Ford (left) as she lined models’ top lids with thick kohl liner.  “We didn’t want a straight line, we wanted a little bit of that curve to it so its not going out at an angle. It just goes softly hugging the eye and then just around the nice soft edge,” she shared.

To soften the look Montelongo diluted black glitter eyeshadow with eye gloss.  The dewy look achieved with eye gloss was definitely en vogue at Public School and Prabal Gurung (center, top and bottom). “The gloss melts into skin and moves around with the lighting,” explains Grace Lee, makeup artist for Maybelline New York, who achieved the look with Maybelline’s Shine Shot.

At Marc Jacobs (right), however, Diane Kendal‘s dramatic liner created six cat eye options.  “We’re using the black eyeliner in the waterline and using the magic marker, a pen eyeliner, and using that on top of the lid extending out and underneath — going into the inner corner. On some girls, it’s slightly thicker on the outside to really give that exaggeration.”

NYFW: SPARKLES AT JEREMY SCOTT!

Sunday, September 10th, 2017

The theme for Jeremy Scott’s twentieth anniversary show at New York Fashion Week was sparkle and shine!  Aside from the all-star lineup, featuring Karlie Kloss, Sofia Richie (left), Gigi Hadid (right), Coco Rocha, Jourdan Dunn, Liberty Ross, Devon Aoki, Joan Smalls, and Stella Maxwell, models were literally adorned in glitter.  Designed by Miss Pop for CND, the comet-inspired look was created with silver-dusted digits and featured CND VINYLUX Weekly Polish shades of Hot Pop Pink and Electric Orange and “a pound of glitter” to complement Scott’s collection.  MAC Cosmetics makeup artist, Kabuki, added his own sparkle with three rhinestone dots below the models’ lash lines.  “There was so much excitement in the clothes that I needed something kind of minimal to really tie in the makeup,” he shared. “We tried to pick these aurora borealis-like different shade crystals, something very simple but playful and a little bit out there and sparkle without transforming the girls too much.”
