Backstage Beauty

February 11, 2014

Before I do a post about one of my favourite collections from NYFW Autumn/Winter 2014 (which is going to be near impossible to decide on) I thought I would share some of the beauty looks emerging that look simple to replicate, and are actually wearable without people thinking you have taken the trends too literally! These are all very subtle, with soft neutral colours that would actually look lovely for the summer months too. (Images:

Diane Von Furstenbury beauty

Diane Von Furstenburg – This is such a lovely clean and simple look. A light dusting of ┬álilac eye shadow and thin coat of mascara only on the top lashes is just so pretty! With a light blush and minimal lip colour this is definitely a beauty look I will be trying.

jason wu beauty

Jason Wu – Buzzing in the beauty world is this new way of defining the eye by only lining the top of the eye – right within the lash line. Shown here at the Jason Wu show with a coat of mascara only on the top lashes. Try in brown or black for a dramatic effect. Again there is little to no blush or lip colour.

prabal gurung beauty

Prabal Gurung – One for the evenings maybe, this look uses a peachy/metallic gold eye shadow. Very little mascara, lip colour or blush but just enough to define the cheeks – this all ensures the eyes are at the focus of attention.

thakoon beauty

Thakoon – Possible my favourite look out of the four, but one that is the most daring. Eye liner/shadow sweeping across the bottom lash line only and outwards is certainly unique and creates an edgy look. Worth trying I think!
