Makeup Tips Direct from New York Fashion Week

February 13, 2014

From berry lips to sexy cat eyes, get inspired by the latest makeup trends as seen on the A/W 2014 shows at New York Fashion Week.

At Karen Walker, the look was all about sexy, exaggerated cat eyeliner, achieved using vegan-friendly OCC Tarred Cosmetic Color Pencil and Tarred Gel Liner, one of our favourite makeup lines. To get the look, be brave and really extend the cat eye, then fill it in with liquid eyeliner getting close to the lashes.


Another strong eye look over at Mara Hoffman, but much more wearable for day-to-day, with Maybelline lead makeup artist Alice applying black liner on the bottom waterline, a really striking look that will make the colours of your eyes pop.


Berry lips are always big for the autumn/winter collections, and our favourite has been the wine-stained lips at Rebecca Minkoff. Keep the rest of your makeup clean and simple so that the focus remains on the lips.


If dark lips are too dramatic for you, try a softer yet equally autumnal lip as seen at Carolina Herrera. Makeup artist Diane Kendal applied the soon-to-be-released MAC Boysenberry Lip Color, a gorgeous plum, to the models’  lips and then blotting away with a tissue for a just-bitten finish.
