Get the Look from Christian Siriano Spring 2014 NYFW with Houglass Cosmetics

The month of Fashion Weeks has started and I usually post some of the beauty looks here, so stay tuned to find out the upcoming trends for SS14.

And today I want to share the look that was created by one of my favourite beauty brands – Hourglass Cosmetics by makeup artist Polly Osmond for Christian Siriano’s spring 2014 collection.

I always love reading about the inspiration behind the collection and  the makeup, so here it is:

Siriano was inspired by a recent trip to Isla Mujeres on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, and the destination’s exuberant color palette. The new collection features vivid prints, woven raffias, and sculptural organzas all in vibrant hues. “I wanted the collection to be light, feminine and romantic,” says Siriano. “Like the girl left the beach but she had a cocktail party to go to, and threw on a dress, a bright lip, and little highlighter.”

 What Osmond says about the look: “It’s beachy, breezy and with a pop of color on the lips.  I wanted to create a diffusion of texture, color and light. It’s how your skin would look at a tropical sunset. We used the new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette to create a breathtaking glow—not just on the cheeks but on the eyes, too.”

Man’s Approved Eye Makeup

This week my male friend (that sees me often) told me that I looked very beautiful After a small pause he told me that it was my eye makeup! Yes, not my eyes, but my eye makeup looked killer.

That was very unexpected, actually. But he is an artist so it kind of makes sense.

So what did I use on that day; and pretty much all week long?

Eye Brows

I find that the way your eye brows look makes a huge difference in your appearance, as they frame your face.  Just make sure that you don’t create a very dark or harsh shape, unless you are going for a dramatic look. Just feel in any gaps you may have and cheat the shape slightly, if you wish to. I like Anastasia’s kit with the powders and wax.

 Eyes

Curl your lashes! Now this is a very important step. I have already shared that it took me years  (WHY?) to get decent curlers, shu’s of course, although all the Top MUAs always raved about curling your lashes. I should have invested earlier, as they [curlers] make a huge difference. They do open up your eyes! I refuse to be without mine now.

As for the eye shadows, I  would suggest
