2009 Fall New York Fashion Week: Thakoon

When Michelle Obama wore a dress by Thakoon at the Democratic National Convention, political junkies and fashion fiends alike took notice. It's no surprise, then, that eyes from New York to DC were on this in-demand show. Although Fab loved the clothes, I cannot fathom a world in which I wear yellow fur. Not even if I marry Big Bird. (This is why Fab does fashion and I do not.) What I did like was the smoky-eyed makeup, which looked modern and effortless.

Lead makeup artist Diane Kendal was inspired by surrealist photographs from the 1940s, updating the inspiration with a hint of rock 'n' roll attitude.

  • Face: Kendal previewed Nars Sheer Glow Foundation at the show, but it won't be out until Fall. Until then, cover imperfections with concealer and lightly apply a sheer foundation or tinted moisturizer — preferably one with illuminating qualities to reflect light. She swept Nars blush in Gilda on the apples of the cheeks.
  • Eyes: Kendal lined the upper lashes and the crease of the eyelid with eyeliner pencil in Mambo, a chocolate-brown shade. Then she blended over the entire lid, leaving most of the color near the lash line. She filled in brows with powder eye shadow, keeping them full. A razor-thin line of black liquid eyeliner along the top lash line finishes the look — no mascara needed.
  • Lips: Apply a clear balm to lips, then lightly dab concealer on lips to mute their natural color.
