The best makeup of NYFW S/S’14 by Dani Fonseca and Mehron

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Now that New York Fashion Week is a wrap, I spent some time browsing a ton of looks done for the runway.  By far, one of my favourite looks continues to be Dani Fonseca’s creation for the Venexiana runway show.  I love the use of colour, the bold simplicity of the look, and how wearable it is!!  Dani does amazing work and she did not disappoint!

I was able to visit backstage to get details on the overall look.  Of course it was madness before the show, but everything just falls in place in time for the curtain raise!

So this look was all about bright, coloured liner on the top and bottom, out-to-there lashes, also on the top and bottom, flawless, natural skin with contouring and just bitten lips!

And here’s the look!

Despite the fact that there is about foot of snow on the ground, the fashion world never stopped!  Here’s the makeup done by Uzo, NARS’ International Lead Makeup Artist, at the Tia Cibani show.

The Inspiration…

“I love the 1920s feel to the collection, the nod to Art Deco, and the inspiration from Man Ray portraiture,” said Uzo. “I wanted a look that celebrated the beauty standard of that era but still keep things fresh and modern by pairing the bold lip with healthy, luminous skin.”

Backstage!! With Venexiana and Mehron at NYFW SS13

Hey!

I was so excited for this amazing opportunity! I was going to observe the madness behind the scenes!! So I hustled to Lincoln Center in the pouring rain to the Venexiana show, on Saturday Sept, 8th.

The makeup was being done by Mehron, which is a professional makeup line, known for their long-wear, theatrical, highly pigmented products.  They are particularly popular amongst professional dancers.  Did you know that Mehron was the brand featured and used in the movie “Black Swan” with Natalie Portman?  I have tried a few of their products and they are amazing and well priced!

Anyway, the show was keyed by the amazing body painter/makeup artist Dani Fonseca.  Venexiana is known for their rock and roll haute couture vibes, expensive fabrics with an edge and the makeup had to suit!  Typically, from what I have seen, makeup on the runway tends to be fairly simple, very neutral on the lid, occasionally a bright lip, but the idea is to not to compete with the clothes, but Kati Stern, the creator of Venexiana, wanted a bold, smoky eye with standout lashes!
