NYFW post: At 5:31 Jerome with Inglot Cosmetics

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

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!

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

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!

“I See Blue” for #NYFW……

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Yes, ah seein’ blue!!!  Maybelline is the official makeup sponsor for Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week and they have brought out a limited edition coloured mascara collection.  All vibrants!! The deep blue one, caught my eye!!! They also have purple, green, teal and other colours but……the shade “I See Blue” was it!!

Maybelline Limited Edition “I See Blue” mascara

Again, don’t like the wand for the original but the pigmentation is wonderful! I love a coloured mascara to have a little fun with makeup and change up the look, but since I’m not wearing green lashes everyday, I don’t want to spend $30 for a high-end mascara.

The wand

I grabbed this up, as it seems to be the most popular of the colours.  They are available at drugstores, but when they are done, that’s it!  Check out my swatches below.
