New York Fashion Week F/W 2014 is in full swing!  Lots of people hustling to and fro all over the city going to fashion shows and what not!

So, on Day 2, I had the opportunity to go backstage at the 5:31 Jérôme fashion show and the makeup was done by Inglot Cosmetics.  The show was hosted at Inglot’s massive showroom at Chelsea Market in the Meatpacking District.  Allyuh remember Jérôme?? He was the stylist and designer for Kimora Lee Simmons and Baby Phat.  I’m glad to see that he has continued to succeed!

The makeup and hair were beautiful!  The hair was big and teased, very much inspired by the 60s and bombshell Brigitte Bardot.  The makeup was very modern doll, and delicate.  Dewy, flawless skin, flushed cheeks with a bold golden brow.

Flawless! Makeup by Inglot

For the skin, they mixed Inglot’s Cream Concealer with Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream to create light coverage.  It gave a serious glow and made the skin look so fresh!   Pink cheeks were created using the Cream Blush in #80, which looks really light in the container but on the skin it gave a medium pink colour that was not ashy at all.  The brows were covered in a deep metallic gold Gel Eyeliner and set with the matching powder eye shadow.  The shape was lengthened and exaggerated.  Bronzer was used to set the makeup on the skin and finally on the lips, a deep red Cream Lipstick was applied lightly to the centre of the lips.

Check out some of the scenes! And props to the diverse runway!

A pop of colour! I like that the collection was not so dark! The top was a dark salmom colour.

These were in navy and the dress on the right was my favourite!
