Beauty That Knows No Bounds


One of the more fun things for a beauty junkie to witness during fashion week is watching the pros seamlessly use products in different ways. Brown eye pencils became lip pencils at Alexander Wang, lavender lipsticks were cheek colors at Jason Wu, and at Karen Walker, makeup artist Maxine Leonard used two different cream eye shadows to get that perfect orange lip at left. Leonard combined MAC Pro Cream Colour Base in Orange Alarm and Rich Coral and applied them to models’ lips after lining them with a complimentary color for a pout that popped in a very wearable way. (Please note how the texture and specific shade combination manages to completely bypass any kind of eighties-neon reference.) Oh, and if you’re curious about the amazing dove-gray nails that were peeking out of pockets on the runway, the color was custom blended for the show by Creative Nail Design’s Angie Wingle. It’s not going to be available for purchase, but if you want to mix up your own bottle at home, here’s the recipe:

Karen Walker Dove Gray

2/3 Bottle of CND Cream Puff

24 Drops of CND Voodoo

10 drops of CND Hot Pop Blue
