Fashion Week A/W 2009 Runway Makeup Looks and Breakdowns

Celeb makeup artist Beau Nelson was right – the ’80s are back! For his A/W 2009 collection, Giorgio Armani created a beautiful collection of 80s-inspired chunky knit cardigans, fitted jackets, tight leggings, pencil skirts, cocktail dresses and more in greys and blacks. And to go with the retro theme, models strutted around in a super tight updo with a bun on one side, strong, purple smoky eyes and fire-engine red lips. Hot!

Grunge, sci-fi and New Age travelers were the inspirations behind the designs of Jacqui Markham and Karen Bonser at the Topshop Unique Fall 2009 show.

The collection consists of layers of oversized chunky sweaters and scarves in bright colors along with metallic leather tunics, bodysuits and glow-in-the-dark accessories. Kind of hot and definitely not for the shy.

MAC makeup artist Lucia Pieroni created a beautiful “Tim Burton-esque girl” for the Zac Posen Fall 2009 show. “She’s very beautiful, but a bit creepy and doll-like,” said Pieroni. The eyes were rimmed with black pencil and contoured with shades of brown and carbon. False lashes were applied on the top and the lips painted in orange.
