Makeup Look at Monique Lhuillier at 2011 Spring New York Fashion Week

Fashion Week Spring 2011: High-Society Makeup

We're happy to present this article from one of our favorite sites, Daily Makeover!

It was a classy affair backstage at Monique Lhuillier where models were made to look like high-society, Irving Penn debutantes. Bumble and bumble lead stylist Rudi Lewis wanted to create an updo that was timeless, but not retro. "We wanted the girls to look done and be true to Monique's client base. You buy a Monique piece because you're going some place," he said. Find out how the look was achieved when you read more.

He started off with a very sleek high ponytail, leaving the top section out. He then gathered the loose hair up and pulled it back with a thick gold barrette, joining that hair with the original ponytail and rolling it under to create a high, sleek roll.

Makeup artist Val Garland for MAC also riffed on the posh vibe by creating a winged, lilac eye. She used a matte periwinkle cream shadow on the lids and a shimmery gold in the inner corners. On the eye socket she applied a new product by MAC called Mega Metal Shadow in Dalliance — a silvery lilac — and Paint Pot in Dangerous Curves to enhance the cat-eye effect. Brows were slightly elongated to get that "aerodynamic feel" and mascara and corner lashes were also used.

Skin was subtly contoured with a bit of blush and the finishing touch was soft pink, rosy stain on lips that was created using Kissable Lip Color in Vanity Fair.
