NYFW AW/11 MAKEUP: DAY 1

Unfortunately I was unable to attend New York Fashion Week this season but I did manage to get my hands on some of the M.A.C cosmetics face charts for the autumn winter 2011 makeup. To see the looks from Vena Cava & WAYNE

The look for Vena Cava was a stunningly dramatic iridescent sapphire smokey eye with nude skin and lips. The eye makeup was created by using M.A.C Pro glitters and shine mixing medium, I love the messy deconstructed, rockery glamour of this look.

At WAYNE it was a much more neutral affair similar to last season, just natural contouring and highlighting to add dimension to the eyes and face, with a dash of 'Prince Noir' Lipstick a new deep reddish purple shade due to be released at M.A.C this winter blended in the center of the lips.

  2. @CAROLINE. Its stunning isn't it! the glitter they used is so big and chunky it looks like craft store glitter which it probably is, I've never seen a M.A.C glitter that chunky before.

  3. Maybe from a distance that heavy glitter looks great but up-close it's kinda creepy...IMHO

  4. While the first look is eye candy, I really love the second one, I 'm always fascinated by perfect contouring and highlighting.

  5. The chunky glitter looks a lot like clumpy dirt. Or crushed up steeped tea leaves. I don't personally like it. On the blonde model, she looks completely strung out. However, I've always very much liked the bold eye with almost a non-existent lip.

  6. Richie,

    Please don't think I'm trying to be a biotch but could you please do something elese with the header of this site! It's horrible and if you can't see why I will point out the obvious:
    man in background just makes visitors feel bad-picture of you says very little as well. You should have a nicer theme going here. Please don't disregard me as a hater. I am a media journalist and I am being honest. I enjoy your work and find you to be very charasmatic.
