New York Fashion Week Beauty: Natural Pleasures

These two models at NYFW Fall 2012 collections have very simple, alluring makeup looks. At Ralph Lauren, Redken consultant Guido Paolo pulled hair back into stylish ponytails. Makeup artist Tom Pecheux gave the Ralph models a very natural face that allowed their distinctive features to shine.

A smudge of grey eyeshadow make this model's blue eyes pop.

Also, a bit of Eyeshadow Government advice: To get skin that looks fresh and young in the wintertime, apply moisturizer before washing your face. Avène Cleanance soapless gel cleanser is great for all skin types. Then, after washing your face, apply more moisturizer and pure rose hip seed oil for brighter, luminous skin.

Model at Jill Stuart Fall 2012 runway show.

At Jill Stuart, the girls had folk singer hair with their high fashion looks.  Who says you can't have your cake and eat it too? Stuart cited Nick Cave's lovers as an influence for the show, although I respectfully decline to name them. (Because I worship them.) Beautiful, wavy tresses with a slightly rough edge by French hairstylist Odile Gilbert complimented the designer's ensembles. Also, off topic, I suppose it is a bit funny that at New York Fashion Week, models are groomed to appear messy, but I think there truly is an art to this work.

Most of the models rocked purple eyelids, but this model's eye makeup appears more grey. To recreate this smoky eye look, simply brush Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in Slate across your lids and with a thin brush, line the shadow all along your lower lid as well. Skip lipstick and just dab on Carmex to make your lips appear plump.

Air kisses to all my readers! Take a lesson from these beauty looks and remember, you look amazing just the way you are.
