New York Fashion Week Spring / Summer 2014: Get the Makeup Looks!

I know we are only three days into NYFW SS 2014 but I’m already loving on some of the makeup looks that are being sent down the runways. The good news? Most of the looks are totally wearable off the runway and flatter most skin tones.Here are a few of my favorites:

Creatures of the Wind SS’14 – Lead Makeup Artist: James Boehmer, NARS Director of Global Artistry

LOOK: “The real statement of the makeup look is the satin textured orange lip. It contrasts the color and finish of the opalescent-textured eye, and also references the era of the artist Eugene von Bruenchenhein, which was a source of inspiration for Shane and Chris. We loved the idea of translating this into the beauty look as well.”
HOW TO CREATE THE LOOK:
FACE
– After priming skin, apply NARS ‘Radiant’ Cream Compact Foundation ($38). To seamlessly blend and give foundation a lighter feel, blot face with a damp sponge.
– Use NARS Stick Concealer ($23) to hide any imperfections.  Instead of applying directly to the skin, warm concealer between your ring fingers and tap on or apply with a concealer brush.
EYES
– Mix both eyeshadows in the NARS Duo Eyeshadow Iceland ($34) and apply to entire eyelids. Use an eyeliner brush dipped in both shadows to line the inner corners of your eyes.
LIPS
– Line entire lip area and fill in with NARS Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil in Red Square in ($25)
– Then, since NARS used Timanfaya Satin Lip Pencil, which won’t be out until Spring 2014,  try applying a layer of NARS Lipstick in Heat Wave ($26)
