NYFW S/S 2012 Beauty

Playing with colors isn’t very famous in the runways of NYFW S/S 2012. New York Designers opted for nudes,browns, muted monochromatic tones as the look for next season.

Ladies, it will be all about the skin.  So go visit your derma, invest on the right concealer and make up base…as  nude will take the streets in Spring 2012.

P.S.

If you get tired of those browns… try this metallic look as seen in 3.1 Philip Lim Fashion Show. Make up by NARS cosmetics.

Make Up Forever and NYFW

By the time I finish this post, My sister Intet (urbandai.com) might be starting with her New York Fashion Week coverage.

In preparation for her fashion week stint, we did a make up tutorial with the products Make Up Forever Philippines gave her.

L-R: Camouflage Cream Concealer, Loose Powder, Face and Body Liquid Foundation, HD Elixir Primer, Aqualiner in purple, Smokey Lash Mascara, HD cream blush, Smoky Eye Color Palette and Lip color palette.

Here are the 4 looks I’ve created for her using the products from Makeup Forever.

1. Smoky Metallic-  Tired of the usual hallow black? Use metallic blue, green or purple shades to make your eyes pop. Nude matte lips balances the whole look.

2. Cranberry Lips- Pick the right Bordeaux shade of lipstick. Add a sexier touch by applying gloss. Use shimmer white or beige eye color. Apply pale and simple blush and coat lashes with mascara.

3. Monochrome Eyes and Lips- Use beige, taupe and brown shades on lids. Finish the look with glossy nude lips and peach blush.

4. Big brow and Flushed cheeks- using the HD cream blush apply in circular motion using fingertips. Line brows, use dark brown or sable shade. Set the brows with a clear mascara.

Unfortunately the photos of the looks was with her en route to NYC so I couldn’t post it here right away.
