Revlon @ Luca Luca 2012

Revlon’s Global Artistic Director, Gucci Westman, paired an angelic eye with a strong lip for the Luca Luca Spring 2012 collection, which was inspired by the sensuality and femininity of a strong woman. Westman used hues of purples and browns to highlight the designer’s fresh and edgy collection comprised of a sherbet palette of periwinkle, teal and shades of berry juxtaposed against graphic black and white.

I was inspired by the designer’s color palette and chose shades and textures that would bring out the essence of the entire collection,” says Westman. “It reminded me of the sophistication of an Italian Vogue story I’d seen with girls that looked very luxurious, young and polished.  The slightly transparent yet glossy purple eye works beautifully with the lip. It’s glamorous yet approachable.”

Make Up For Ever #15 Aqua Cream

Aqua Creams have a quick dry down, and once they have dried, they stay on all day long for me–no budging, smudging, creasing, or fading. They can be worn alone, as a base, or as eyeliner (and some shades can be worn on cheeks/lips, too; a few aren’t meant for eyes but for cheeks/lips entirely).

OCC Cruising Nail Lacquer

OCC Cruising Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “brassy gold shimmer.” It is supposed to coordinate with Cruising Loose Colour Concentrate. It’s a warmed-up yellow-tinted gold glitter mixed with brassier gold glitter particles. In lower light conditions, it looks warmer, more gold against my skin tone (which has yellow undertones), but under brighter light, it has a brassier look (more like the loose eyeshadow). The color reminded me most of China Glaze Midnight Kiss, except Cruising is the glitter version of it.

Deborah Lippmann for Beauty.com @ Costello Tagliapietra S/S 2012

Today, I went backstage at the Costello Tagliapietra with Beauty.com to check out Deborah Lippmann, who was (obviously!) responsible for the nail look at the show. Lippmann first polished nails with one coat of Waking Up in Vegas (described as a “beautiful putty shade”) and then layered with a coat of Fashion (described as an unusual taupe) to come up with a customized take on nudes and grays but with a warmer undertone.  I personally loved that Deborah Lippmann’s team wore black shirts that said, “Get Nailed on the DL!”

The hair was slicked back (which seems to be a big trend this season), while the makeup was simple but more than neutral with a burnt orange shade done all over the eyes and lips.
