Runway Beauty: Rachel Roy at Fall 2010 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

A 1930s Egyptian influence weaves together fashion and beauty at the Fall 2010 Rachel Roy Fashion Show. Peacock prints are lifted from feminine silhouettes and translated into bold, beautiful makeup. Iridescent “peacock feather” eyes gleam in denim and burgundy metallic shades from brow to lower lash line with a hint of aqua on inner corners, ultimately lined with a black kohl pencil. An even, dewy finish of the skin, softly defined pink cheek, and sheer beige lip allow the eyes to be the star of this show.

“Eyes are intense, covered in rich velvet…Scarlet and black create a modern smolder…” – Wendy Rowe for Bobbi Brown Cosmetics
