“There is an air of elegance and sophisticated femininity with a youthful component. Glowing skin combined with subtle, lustrous smokey eyes and cognac-stained lips complement the feel of the collection in a soft, seductive manner. ”
—Uzo, NARS International Lead Makeup Stylist
Back and barely functioning after a world wind week at Trinidad & Tobago Carnival. This weekend is about rest and recovery, especially since it is brick here in NYC! Meanwhile, New York Fashion Week started yesterday and I am excited to see what the upcoming treads in beauty as well as any new products being previewed. I hopefully will have some beauty looks that hit the runways this season.
The end of summer signals the start of Global Fashion Week, beginning with the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week! And so far the weather has been really good, so there are no limits to what people can wear! I love people watching at this time of year!
Yesterday, I went backstage at the fashion designer Harbison’s show. The makeup was sponsored by AJ Crimson Beauty, Beauty Blender and the hair was by Federic Fekkai. Key makeup artist was Edward Cruz! The location was gorgeous! Milk Studios with the Hudson River, New Jersey and the Meatpacking District as the backdrop!
So two of AJ Crimson’s products were featured here, his Dual Skin Crème Foundation, which is a buildable, HD compliant, waterproof foundation and his brand new Banana Crème in the Pro Pan form.
Look at that colour range! Especially the deepest shade!
Think the famous Banana Powder without the starkness, dryness and settling, especially on deeper skintones. The product is very creamy and similar in texture with his Dual Skin Foundation.

I was pleased to see such a diverse array of skintones and AJ’s line worked quite well from the palest to the deepest.
Key makeup artist was Edward Cruz and he was kind enough to chat with me after he demoed the look. Talk about being so genuine and nice!
What’s going on?? This is my first “Whey de lime” Fridays for 2014!
Despite the brutal cold and way too much snow, I am excited for this weekend, because New York Fashion Week A/W 2014 started yesterday! I love how regardless what the weather is like, fashion aficionados still step out in style for these shows! Once again Lincoln Center is the fashion hub and I cannot wait to see what’s going to be hot in a few months and what colours and makeup trends we need to look out for!
So….what are you excited for this weekend? Leh mih know!!
