Prabal Gurung’s collection today was stunning. The makeup look featured flawless skin with subtle sculpting under the cheekbones. Eyebrows were brushed up, terracotta eyeshadow defined the crease while extending out towards the temple, and ivory pencil lined the inner rim of the eyes. Lips were kept nude by knocking out the colour with concealer.
Day 1 of NY fashion week is over and these are my top 3 looks. All big warm, furry coats which couldn’t be more appropriate for the cold snap in New York, not to mention the rather low temperatures that Vancouver is dealing with currently. Coach debuted their very first ready-to-wear collection early this morning. Interestingly there were many street style inspired looks that I enjoyed, including a few over sized totes I would definitely carry. BCBG have been sending fabulous designs down the runway for 25 years, this season marks their anniversary. The sleek fur relaxed shoulder coat by 10 Crosby was one of many cool styles from the collection.

As fashion month is in our imminent future, know doubt Binx Walton will be one of the many models ready to descend on New York. Last season this new comer walked in 27 shows from Chanel to Marc Jacobs. Pretty brown eyes and gorgeous cheekbones are just two of Binx’s stand out features that get her booked from city to city.
The nude lip is essential for any woman regardless of the season. I recommend adding these to your makeup kit: Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks in buff tones offer a nude for every skin tone. From fair to deep shades there are 8 colours in the line up with some excellent options for dark skin. The lipsticks have a creamy texture that glides on effortlessly, feels comfortable, and has lots of pigment for a flesh tone finish.
There were some notable moments on the Grammy red carpet; such as Rita Ora in shimmery green Lanvin worn with smoky purple eyes. Chrissy Tiegen’s new shorter, lighter hair looked lovely with her gold dress. Taylor Swift’s Gucci gown was incredible, though I am not a fan of hers. All I really wanted to see was Beyoncé open the show! After killing her performance with Jay Z, Beyoncé dried her hair; put on a scarlet lip; a body hugging sheer Michael Costello gown, and took her front row seat to enjoy the rest of the show. Flawless.
The Spring 2014 couture collections were beautiful. These are 6 of my favourite makeup looks from the week – at Chanel the look designed by Peter Philips, was all about the eyes. Various sizes of silver glitter shimmered on the lower lash line. Dramatic black liquid liner defined the eyelids; bare lips and natural matte skin tied the look together. Boxy liquid liner looked amazing at Giambattista. Atelier Versace and Armani Prive both featured well blended metallic smokey eyes. I loved the shape of the Armani eye, and the pop of blue at Versace. The Valentino girl is always about perfect skin and barely there makeup; this season was no exception. Christian Dior was one of the few shows with a lip focus. Cherry red with a highlight along the top lip made the girls mouths really stand out.
Model Li Wei is cropping up all over the place; from Asian magazines to the runways of London and New York. Her brows and lips are beautiful, she is definitely one to look out for this upcoming fashion month.
The new Lightbulb foundation from Shu Uemura gives radiant skin without skimping on coverage. A combination of oil and minerals allow for a moisturized complexion and long lasting finish. Along with the foundation comes a unique sponge that enhances the foundation application. The lightbulb sponge provides an even finish, and controlled shine in areas that require less glow. The lightbulb foundation launched last year in Asia and I checked it out while I was in Japan. Like all Shu Uemura foundations I love the formulation, however the biggest disappoint is the limited variety of shades available.
Next seasons campaigns feature fresh new face like Lupita Nyong’o for Miu Miu, and tried and tested beauties like Gisele for Louis Vuitton. Daria Werbowy with bleach blonde hair and that aubergine lip is beyond amazing.
