Backstage at New York Fashion Week- Carolina Herrera by CND, MAC, and Orlando Pita for MoroccanOil

The Carolina Herrera woman is sexy and sophisticated, and the beauty look for her fall 2010 show achieved that look to perfection.
Nails by Roxanne Valinoti for CND


Channeling luxury, opulence, and rich, lush, fabrics, the nails at Carolina Herrera were all about Chocolate Milk, a pigmented, evening neutral designed to be thrown on with your most sumptuous gown.  Inherently feminine, this light cocoa shade is the perfect compliment to the deep purple eye look done for the show.


Hair by Orlando Pita for Moroccan Oil

Inspired by a model who came in to the test shoot with her hair hanging loose, Orlando Pita decided to create a sleek but volumized look for the show, to compliment the elegant sophistication of Herrera's collection. Using MoroccanOil Hydrating Styling Cream, the hair team blow-dried model's hair, parting down the side and then pinning the hair behind the ears. To finish, and provide hold, and for extra shine, hair was sprayed with brand new MoroccanOil Luminous Hair Spray.

Makeup by Diane Kendal for MAC Cosmetics

Something very near and dear to my heart, the artist in me rejoiced to see the MAC team executing perfect purple, smoky eyes on the models. MAC artist Diane Kendal started by lining the lid both top and bottom with Prunella eye pencil, a deep burgundy. Prunella was also applied into the eye crease, and blended out to diffuse the color. Indian Ink and Vibrant Grape were applied both on lid and in the crease, continuously blending the colors into one another. Lots of mascara was applied, and brows were lightly groomed to finish the eye look. A pink/mauve blush (working name Soho, new for fall) was blended into the apples of cheeks, and concealer and then a pink/mauve lipglass (working name Subtle Romance, also new for fall) was also applied to complete the look.



Sleek hair, sophisticated nails, and a purple smoky eye make this beauty gal very happy indeed. I adored this look, and see myself rocking it in the near future for sure.
