Estée Lauder at Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2012 Paris Fashion Show

This weekend I’m spending at le bf’s place on the south coast so I will have limited time in front of a computer. I promise to be more reachable by Wed next week!

Am on my way to dinner (happy birthday to me!), but I thought I’d leave you with some amazing images that landed in my inbox last week courtesy of Estee Lauder PR. Tom Pecheux has done it again-the perfect balance between chic and undone, edgy and sophisticated. When I saw the feathery smokey eye with the haunting combination of burgundy/pink and gunmetal, I almost died.

“Anthony’s collection is magical – very sexy, very luxurious, very fresh, very young.  All of those elements combined inspired me to create a ‘Paris by night’ look, with the focus on the eyes.  For me, the eyes represent the Parisian woman, it’s her signature.  Anthony is a young designer, and it is important to keep the makeup young and fresh.” – Tom Pecheux, Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director.

The Edit: beauty looks from Fall 2012 runways

Hellooooo!

The Fall Ready To Wear fashion week shows are always my favourites. Here are the beauty looks that have made it into my inspiration folder- hope you enjoy these as much as I did!

 

 

Jason Wu RTW Fall 2012

 

Another reason to pull out my MAC Club eyeshadow, which is currently collecting dust. I realise I haven’t gone anywhere near green/emerald/peacock toned eyeshadows for a long time- and I think that trying this makeup look for a FOTD would be the best way to correct the situation.

Style.com says….

Makeup artist Diane Kendal was working within a similar cross section of warrior-meets-old school glamour, which manifested itself into a strong, diffused, emerald-green eye. “It’s Ming dynasty and 1940’s Hollywood,” Kendal said while building up lids using MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Tealo to create a base for its Eye Kohl in Minted, a light green, that she layered through the crease.

To add texture and dimension, Kendal blended MAC Eyeshadow in Club and its Pigment in Kelly Green outward toward the temple before tracing the lash line with its Eye Kohl in Blooz, a dark blue, and a black cream liner to extend the elongated shape of the pigments. “The actual shape is the Hollywood part,” Kendal said of the classic cat’s-eye silhouette. MAC Haute and Naughty Mascara amplified top lashes only, while lips were left bare, save for a touch of its emollient Lip Conditioner.

Burberry Prorsum RTW Fall 2012

 

The makeup looks on the Burberry Prorsum Fall RTW runways this year looks like they came straight off a Burberry magazine advertisement- you have the taupe brown smokey eye, neutral lips, and a ‘desaturated’, sepia look to the colour palette. So simple but I adore it.

Style inspiration from Stockholm Street Style

So, I really should be studying hard for a rather terrifying exam (worth 90%) coming up on Monday. That makes this the perfect time to peruse my favourite street style photography blogs!

Here are some of the images I’ve been drooling over, from Stockholm Street Style …

 

 

Love the intense bronzey blush, applied low, with the simplicity of her outfit. Youth in a bottle

 

Ahh Catherine McNeil, I would trade anything for your eyes. Also- the cut of that red dress is just stunning, especially with the long thin necklace that disappears into the plunge of the dress.

 

That necklace + the cut of the top = stunning.

The Edit: beauty looks from Spring Summer 2012 runways

It’s that time of the year again. The dust has settled from the Spring/Summer Ready To Wear Fashion Week runways, leaving me to greedily pore over all the backstage photos.

Here are my favourite looks-

I loved the smudgey copper gold and black smokey eye that Lisa Butler created for this Emilio Pucci show using MAC cosmetics. It’s equal parts gypsy wanderer, and rich girl on a luxury yacht.

 

Eyes


• Smolder Eye Kohl – applied through the upper lashline, waterline and lower lashline, with extra depth at the inner and outer corner of eyes.
• Blitz and Glitz Fluidline – smudged through Smolder Eye Kohl around lashes.
• Venetian Tarnish Metal X Cream Shadow – applied over the upper and lower eyelids with fingers, being sure to not over blend.
• Zoomblack Zoom Lash Mascara – applied through both upper and lower lashes to define.
• Hush Hush Tendertone Lip Balm (available Spring/Summer 2012) – dabbed over eyelids during line-up at first looks.
