The Runway Rundown

Written on March 1, 2011 at 7:12 am , by

With runway season coming to a close, it’s time to look back and reflect on our favorite beauty looks.  We’re using these fresh looks as inspiration to update our routine:

CYNTHIA-ROWLEY-FALL-2011-RTW-beauty-007_runway

All About Eyes. Cynthia Rowley’s runway gals sported this strong smoky eye look that we loved. The models’ cat eyes were extended with bold brown shadow instead of liner, a great technique to subtly amp up your evening makeup.  Gold liner below the bottom lashes adds a pop of color that draws attention to the eyes and balances out the strong shadow.

ELIE-TAHARI-FALL-2011-RTW-BEAUTY-002_runway

True Romance. This cheeky look was spotted at the Elie Tahari show. The models donned a super-flushed pink cheek, but what we loved even more were the subtle heart-shaped lips. The flirtatious pucker perfectly finished off the uber-romantic look.

Ice Queens. At Luca Luca the models’ icy beauty offered fresh take on the bold lip. These ladies proved that you don’t need to be tan to work the rouge. Even the hairstyle was refreshing, with a unique parted, pinned-up bun.  The illuminated eye was alluring and whimsical, and the model’s skin radiated, creating an over all flawless face.

RODARTE-FALL-RTW-2011-BEAUTY-001_runway

Swept Away. Rodarte’s models look like they just blew in on a breeze. The windblown hair paired with funky yellow and orange eye makeup is a refreshing change from the standard smoky eye. And the model’s pout is the perfect rusty hue that meshes well with the unusual eye.
