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!

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.
