Nothing contours up summer quite like the image of a Lolita-esq girl with bronzed, colt-like limbs, lolling around in the summer sunshine, sucking on a popsicle. Lips stained fruity shades of strawberry, watermelon, apricot, cherry, raspberry and peach. Whether you prefer to wear your bright pout in glossy, glazed shades or barely-there tints, pair back with nude or minimal make up to make the colour pop.
There is something about the cat’s eye that has made it a timeless make up look. A simple sophisticated flick of liquid liner on the eye paired back with lashings of mascara create a wide eyed, classic look that is at home with a nude lip as it is a bold coloured pout. Use a steady hand and think old Hollywood glamour.
I usually overlook Altuzarra’s collections during fashion week- I am not sure why, perhaps because they never seem to get the amount of media coverage as their other NYFW counterparts. However this season their beauty looks captured my attention and are my standout pick of beauty looks for NYFW this season.
She has heavy black, smokey eyes; smudged and slept in black liner; tousled bed hair; black, glossy nails and bare lips. She has black liquid eyeliner flicks; hair teased and quiffed up upon the crown; dewy skin and long, dark lashes. She is messy and disheveled and yet some how sexy and nonchalant.
2013 is all about change. Let go, move on, learn and discover.
Say it with kindness. With flowers, synthetic feathers, face paint, braids, wreaths, headdresses, bronze, glitter, sea salt, bare skin, an open mind and a free spirit.
