Runway Beauty: Gray Smoky Eyes at Matthew Williamson Fall 2009 NY Fashion Week

To offset the bright colors and glittery beading spotted at the Matthew Williamson Fall 2009 show, makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury created a chic early 90’s woman look that is “very done but in a neutral way.” The eyes were defined in shades of gray and brown while the cheeks were lightly contoured with a bronzer and a rosy nude was applied onto the lips.
