I had a great time seeing the makeup artistry on the runways this season, and I’ve put together some of my favourite looks from Style.com here. Hope you enjoy these as much as I did!
For the A/W 2013 runway, Peter Philips wanted makeup that would be beautiful close up and equally as eye catching from a distance. The silver sequins/jumbo glitter, which were placed from the inner corner of the eyes and extended outwards is makeup art perfection, and I can imagine the extra sequins placed on the model’s lashes would have caught the lights beautifully on the runway as they moved their eyes.
Dianne Kendal created an amazing dimensional smoky eye that brings to mind stars in the night sky. She layered 3 different types of glitter on top of NARS Outremer and the yet to be released NARS Solomon Islands Eye Paint to achieve the dazzling effect. Ah-mazing.

L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival took place a couple of weeks ago, and I fortunately enough to get a preview of the products that makeup artist extraordinaire Rae Morris created for the runway shows. I won’t have the time to cover all the makeup that I had received- I am only going to concentrate on the products that really stood out for me.
These Color Riche lipsticks were used on the runways (you can find images of the runway look on the L’Oreal Paris Ausralia facebook page) and having never tried these before, I was quite impressed with the product texture and performance . My favourites are Intense Fuschia, Plum Passion, and Nude.

I’m hardly what you would call a high fashion type of a girl in general, but I do love looking to the runways for makeup art inspiration each year- particularly Autumn/Winter RTW.
One of the runway looks that has stuck in my head over the years (possibly due to the simplicity and the resemblance to Modigliani paintings, which I adore) is the looks that Tom Pecheaux created for Marni A/W RTW 2010 back when he was working for MAC Cosmetics. He used MAC Flourishing matte eyeshadow as a soft wash all over the lid right up to the brows, and MAC Spice lip pencil in the centre of the lips.
I used his idea of having MAC Flourishing eyeshadow all the way up to the brows, and switched up the lipstick to something a little bit vampier.

One of the looks from the Spring/Summer Fashion week runways I really loved was the one created for the Giorgio Armani show in Milan. For the show, the makeup artist created a graphic silvery blue eye to go with a minimalist face, using the new Maestro Eyes to Kill Eyeshadow Quad from the new collection.
I don’t own the Armani Maestro Eyes To Kill quad, so I improvised with what I had in my stash, which were some items from MAC, Illamasqua, Urban Decay, and NARS – (AKA ‘The Usual Suspects’).
My version turned out a little softer, and less graphic, than the original makeup look.

One of the looks from the last Ready To Wear shows at NYFW that I really wanted to try was the makeup done for Vera Wang Spring/Summer 2013 (see the images in my Fashion Week coverage post).
The ethereal quality and the warm of the makeup worked perfectly with the romanticism of the India- inspired spring collection in my opinion. I also thought that the look created for this Vera Wang show would be a great option for bridal makeup if you prefer a more natural look over a classic smokey eye. There is a nice subtle shimmer in both the lips and the eyes, which I quite like. The one thing missing is a Vera Wang wedding gown!
I hope you enjoy this FOTD, I’ve listed and photographed products used below
