Lela Rose is the kind of fashion designer I can get behind, mostly because she makes her runway looks work for regular women. Not only does she have a just-the-right-side-of-prissy shoe line at Payless, she's also making her Spring 2009 runway makeup more affordable.
Beauty.com teamed up with Stila, whose makeup artists created the look for the Spring Lela Rose runway show. The same products used on models are now available as the Backstage with Lela Rose kit ($34). It contains mascara, a shimmery champagne eye shadow, a bronzer, and a lip gloss — plus notes on how to recreate the simple look at home. Purchased separately, these goodies would be $77, so it's not a bad deal at all.
