Runway, Spring/Summer 2011

NYFW Spring 2011 Day 5

Donna Karan


Donna Karan’s Spring 2011 collection was comprised of only neutral colors so the coppery golden eye that makeup artist, Charlotte Tilbury created complimented the clothing perfectly. The inner corners of the eye were highlighted with a yellowish gold, the skin was given a glossy, wet look, and the lips were erased.

Alexandre Herchcovitch

I love the brightly colored lips at the Alexandre Herchcovitch show! Obviously, the look revolved around the lime green, turquoise, apricot, pink and blue lips, so the rest of the face was kept clean. A few coats of mascara on the eyelashes, and model’s were ready to walk.

The 70’s inspired makeup worn by the models in Halston’s presentation was gorgeous! One of my favorites of the day. A natural peachy-pink blush, along with a lot of contour, was applied to the models cheeks. Heavily coated top and bottom eyelashes were the focal point of the look while lips were dabbed with a little bit of concealer for a very nude, barely there look.

Betsey Johnson

Bright, fun and colorful faces took over Betsey Johnson’s runway yesterday. Lime green shadow was applied from lashline to brow, cheeks were swirled with a bright pink blush and hot pink lipstick finished off the look.

Carlos Miele

A glamorous, yet simple, bronzed look was seen on the Carlos Miele runway yesterday. The model’s lids were swept with bronze eyeshadow, while black liner was applied to the top lashline, starting thin on the inner corner and getting thicker as it traveled to the outer corner of the eye. The faces were slightly bronzed, and a velvety soft pink lipstick was applied to the lips.

Carolina Herrera

To compliment the Asian inspired collection at Carolina Herrera, makeup artists applied a soft red shadow to the model’s eyelids. The shadow was blended and extended out past the model’s eye, and several coats of mascara were applied for definition. On the cheeks, a light peach blush, and the lips were coated with a shimmery nude gloss.

Marc Jacobs

Founder and creator of NARS cosmetics, Fracois Nars, created the gorgeous look at Marc Jacobs yesterday. Brows were bleached and the eyes were given a super dramatic glossy, deep green and black smokey eye. Pink blush was applied to the cheeks, and the lips were stained with deep burgundy.

Monique Lhuillier

Models walking in Monique Lhuillier’s show yesterday were given a metallic silvery eye with intense cat eye liquid liner. The creases of their eye were defined using a slightly darker, light purple metallic shadow, which extended outward. Eyebrows were elongated, contour was applied to the hollows of their cheeks, and lips were stained with a soft pink lipstick.
