Backstage Beauty: Carolina Herrera

I think this makeup from Carolina Herrera might be my favorite of all of New York Fashion Week. It's nothing gimmicky, just simple and pretty. The brows are perfectly groomed, the skin has a very soft sheen, and the lips had a bright, beautiful stain.

I was surprised by some of the techniques that went into developing this look. To find out which products were used,

Face: Moisture Cover Concealer was applied to face with #242 Brush and set with Loose Blot Powder to create a velvety texture. M∙A∙C Iridescent Powder in Silver Dusk was sprinkled onto the bridge of the nose and cheek bones for a highlight. (I was surprised by this, but it makes sense—the nose and cheekbones really did catch light at the show.)

Eyes: Retrospeck Eye Shadow was applied to the entire lid. Boot Liquid Eye Liner was lightly wedged in between lashes for a thick lash line and Plush Lash Mascara in Black was used to coat top lashes.

Lips: Orange Lip Mix (a pro-only product) was feathered onto lip with a concealer brush. MAC Pro Lipstick in Full Fuchsia and Mattene Lipstick in Classic Dame were then mixed and layered onto the center of the lip for an intense, burst of color. For a touch of shine, Clear Lip Glass was patted onto the lips.
