Get The Look: Karen Walker’s Summer Beauty For NYFW

September 18, 2012

The makeup at Karen Walker’s Spring/Summer 2012 runway show at NY Fashion Week was all about pastel pink lips, effortlessly defined eyes and smooth, glowing skin. Here’s how to get the look using Clinique.


The skin should be flawless, matte and smooth. To achieve a porcelain finish, use a foundation shade one shade lighter than the natural skin tone. Dab and blend foundation with a brush and top with powder in a slightly lighter shade for a matte finish. For subtle contour and definition, apply a matte bronzer just below the cheekbone.

Stay Matte Sheer Pressed Powder

Superbalanced Powder Bronzer


Using a black eye liner, apply a very fine line along the bottom lash line, corner to corner. Smudge the outer corner only with a clean shadow brush leaving the inner corner thin and more precise. Layered on top of the liner, dust the eye shadow to help create an effortless but polished smudged look. Apply one coat of waterproof mascara on top lashes and use the Bottom Lash Mascara micro mini brush to define lower lashes.

This intense pastel pink colour applied with precise edges adds a feminine touch. To add dimension and create a matte finish, lightly dust a mixture of light pink and lavender eye shadow on top of the intense lip colour.
