NYFW SS2010 - Trend It : The Messy Wash Of Color

    As the NYFW madness continues in New York, I have been working OT trying to gather inspiration from all the brilliant runway looks ! We did a lot of hair posts on AIMB covering several runway hairstyles with detailed instructions on how to do get the look in real life. You can check them all out here.

    In the Trend It Series, I will be writing about several trends that were featured this year on the NYFW SS2010 ramps that could be done everyday to add some spunk to our monotonous make up routines.

    The first in the series is from the Yigal Azrouë Show.

    At the Yigal Azrouë Show, the models sported a clean face with messy black shadow on their eyes. Makeup for this show was by Bobbi Brown. Check out the model pictures and the face chart from the show below. The only color apart from a natural clean foundation is on the eyes.

    The messy trend is here to stay. Its easy, there are no rules, edgy without being overly dramatic. I cant wait to bring out my boring gray sweaters and pair them with this messy, rebellious look. Though black will be most gorgeous, I plan on doing this with a bunch of dark shades like dark green, deep blue and purple. They all will look equally edgy.

    Skin: Hydrating Face Cream ($50), Hydrating Eye Cream ($45), Foundation Stick ($40), Creamy Concealer ($22), Corrector ($22)

    Eyes: Charcoal Eye Shadow ($20) smudged out and applied to lower lash line; Extreme Party Mascara ($22) applied to top and bottom lashes

    Cheeks: Natural

    Lips: Touch of Lip Balm SPF 15 ($17)

    Brows: Clear Natural Brow Shaper ($19)

    Step By Step Tutorial

    1. Apply concealer all over the lids and do the brows
    2. Using your ring finger dab the shadow on the lid. Stop just below the crease. Avoid inner corner. The most concentrated part of the color is just above the lashes. Fade it out using your finger o a brush as it moves towards the crease.
    I used Bobbi Brown Metallic Eyeshadow - bash.
    3. Using a thin angled eyeliner brush, line the lower lash line fading the color towards the inner corner.
    4. Curl your lashes. Apply mascara.

    Now that we've decoded the style, tell me what you think about it !
