Now that I’ve hit the big 3, anti-aging has become a MUCH bigger part in my regimen and thanks to the latest la prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Collection, I might have found the perfect combo to keep me looking 25 foreverrrrrr
At Marc Jacobs A/W ’14, models were made to look like mannequins. “The makeup look was really inspired by the collection, which is very “matte.” There’s nothing too silky and I wanted that to translate to the makeup. The eyelid is a pale neutral grey and we made it look bigger by foregoing mascara. The lips have a touch of frosted metallic silver. We used a lot of powder for a matte, porcelain finish.” said François Nars , Founder & Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics.
Inspired by the feminine villains of classic comic books, the look at The Blonds A/W ’14 was all about dramatic lips, bold brows and out-there nails.
The city following a rainy afternoon served as inspiration for the layers of grays and pops of brighter colors at Wes Gordan A/W ’14. “The beauty look is inspired by the taupes of a cold, rainy day. It’s a grayish brown, almost mushroom color. The Wes Gordon woman is strong and masculine; she wears just the right amount of makeup,” explained lead artist Alice Lane working for Maybelline.
Inspired by “delicate and youthful beauty… ephemeral and nostalgic creating a beautiful glow”, the look at Rodarte A/W ’14 was dark, glittery but simply beautiful.
Inspired by the “it girls” of today and Parisian gritty chic style, the Jill Stuart A/W ’14 collection was designed with a reformed rock n’roll wild child in mind. As a result, models were given an uber smudgy eye look with dewy skin and nude nails.
