New York Fashion Week: Day Three Makeup Sunday 12 February, 2012

When I witnessed the smoky eye MAC makeup lead Chantel Miller did at the Libertine Fall 2012 show, I was smitten. First off, she used a technique that I had never thought to do (or rather, I thought you couldn’t do): She applied cream shadow on top of powder shadow. I did my own twist on this, and further spun the burnished theme with a copper-bronze lip.

And can I just say, as a side note, that I have been using Shiseido’s Shimmering Cream Eye Color every single day so far! This cream doesn’t slip and slide, and the pigment is very adjustable—you can apply it sheer, or build it up to full coverage. And it applies evenly—which, as any cosmetic chemist will tell you, is no small feat.

So here are the products I used…

 Day Three Fashion Week My Makeup Products

Cheeks: Elizabeth Arden Blush in Tearose and Sunlit Rays (as highlighter)

Eyeliner: MAC Glitter Eye Liner in…??? (name wore off…boo! But it’s got a pewter shimmer base with iridescent micr0-glitter in it) and MAC Glitter in 3D Copper (placed over top the eye liner while it’s still wet)

Eyelid: MAC Mega Metal Shadow in Paparazz-She (as base, top and bottom lid); Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in BR 306 (a dark sorrel; I layered this over top of the powder shadow, and focused the application on the outer 3/4 of my lid)

Lips: Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense in 17 (golden bronze – I used this as the base and it is BOLD); MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Look At Her! (applied over top of MUFE); and Make Up For Ever Lab Shine Diamond Collection in D16 (to give the lip a little hint of beige pink so it wasn’t too much copper/bronze overload)

What do you think?
