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:

If there’s one look I’m always striving to perfect it’s the perfect winged eye. Since the early days when my grandma and I would religiously watch every Audrey Hepburn movie, I’ve always wanted to mimic that ultra-sophisticated yet fun and sexy look.
I’ve tried every form of eyeliner — from kohl pencil to liquid to cake. And even though a few makeup remover-soaked q-tips have always been able to save me from an all-out “I just got back from Fight Club” look, it’s always been a messy, laborious process. That is of course until I discovered NYX The Curve Liner ($14.99)…
This ergonomically shaped liner with a curved grip zone for precise application makes perfecting any liquid liner look as easy as putting on lip gloss. It has a felt tip that dispenses just the right amount of color which comes out dark and pigmented, and does not bleed nor feather! REJOICE!
To create a winged eye it only took me one swipe along my lash line and then I changed my grip (angling it upwards) and drew my wing. Voila! I’m Audrey! (Okay, maybe not… but at least it looked perfect and took me about 30 seconds. I’ll take it!)
