I’ve been taking some peeks at all the looks coming off the
NYFW shows this week and I have to say that the beauty looks at Donna Karan ruled the
runway, most especially (and this kills me to say) Kendall Jenner (she’s
technically NOT a Kardashian, right??). Everything from the glowing skin and
minimal makeup with rosy cheeks & lips to the sleek straight side-parts was
perfect. In fact, I was so inspired by this look that I had to recreate it today!
This entire runway look focuses on glowing, dewy
skin. I got this look by first prepping the skin by using a rich, creamy moisturizer; right now I am loving Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream
and argan oil
. To get that glowing-from-within perfected looking skin, I used a lightweight
foundation that provides a glowing sheen- not shine or shimmer- such as Physicians
Formula Nude Wear Touch of Glow Foundation.
If you need a little extra
help (no shame!) use a concealer to cover any blemishes or under eye circles.
To get those naturally rosy, just-pinched
cheeks, use a cream blush such as Stila Convertible Color
in Rose or Peony.
The cream blush will blend nicely and easily on the foundation and looks more
natural; it’s not as heavy as a powder blush and it’s easy to build on the color
for the desired look. Oh, and I can’t believe I am saying this but skip the
highlighter for this look.
For eyes, keep it simple by using a nude matte
shadow that is close to your natural skin tone and gently sweep across lids. I’m
obsessed with the light matte nude shade Walk of Shame in the Urban
Decay Naked Basics Palette!
No dramatic liner here, just a soft
application of brown pencil liner, such as Rimmel London SpecialEyes Eye Liner Pencil
Rich Brown, on the upper lids.
As for mascara, it doesn’t look like the models
are wearing any but let’s be real, I’m no model. I applied a super light coat
Cosmetics Roller Lash Mascara
(available 2/27!) to top and bottom
lashes to help open my eyes.
Finish off the look with a matte, rosy pout. I
opted to just use a liner to fill in my entire lips and then blotted. Opt for a brick-red rosy shade such as Charlotte
Tilbury ‘Lip Cheat’ Lip Liner
in Savage Rose. A simple yet flirty
look-- you are now runway ready!
