Hervé Léger | Diane Kendal
Inspiration: For Fall 2009, Hervé Léger drums to the beat of an urban tribe with a gradient palette of earth tones polished by rich shades of deep ebony. Makeup artist Diane Kendal drew inspiration from Helmut Newton photographs, using the concept of a brave warrior – strong and fierce. “The collection is very hard and sculpted so we wanted to keep the skin neutral and show strength through the eyebrows,” said Diane.
Look: The focus was a very strong eyebrow with glowy skin, communicating strength without being too bold. “We created very fresh, dewy skin by using the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. It really allowed the skin’s natural highlights to shine through,” said Diane.
Face: Use NARSskin Hydrating Moisture Cream to moisturize. Apply NARS Concealer as needed, to cover any imperfections. Use a minimal amount of NARS Sheer Glow Foundation (NEW for Fall 2009) to even skin tone
Eyes: Brush brows to define natural shape. With NARS Single Eyeshadow in Bali, fill in brows. Brush again for even, natural look. Apply gentle dusting of NARS Single Eyeshadow in Sophia to entire lid, blending up towards brows for natural shading. Curl lashes with NARS Eyelash Curler
Lips: Apply NARS Lip Therapy Treatment in Rain to entire lip. Use NARS Concealer over Rain to mute color

Eve Pearl Made Us Over!! Celebrity make-up artist Eve Pearl used her expertise to turn us from exhausted little lilies into fabulous ready-to-take-on-NYC femme fatales You really don’t know just how much of a challenge I posed to Eve! I arrived at the hotel at 7am and checked my bags at concierge since check-in wasn’t until three, and by the time I checked in (around 5pm)… I had totally broken out. Like ALL OVER! In places that I’ve never broken out before!! I don’t know what caused it — everyone’s been saying it’s probably the weather, but ugh! I was 90% cleared up, and now it’s worse than ever. So, Eve had to contend with covering up a slew of blemishes and spots!
Look for me in an upcoming episode of Koren’s Be-YOU-tified! Elessa from Pursebuzz will also be appearing in an episode of the show, too!
DKNY | Charlotte Tilbury
Inspiration: “The look is inspired by the late 50’s – she is a modern take on a punky 50’s school girl.”
Eyes: Black Black chromaline – lining the top lashline in a thick rectangular shape extended out past the outer corner of the eyes. Ebony eye pencil – applied to the waterline. Black prolash mascara – applied to top lashes only. Fling eye brows – drawn into brows to slightly define the shape and add a bit of an arch.
Face: Face and Body foundation – smoothed on to even out skin tone in a sheer application. Blot powder – brushed over the t-zone to diminish extra shine. Laid Back blushcreme – blended high on the cheek bones.
Lips:: Laid Back blushcreme – patted on to lips for a sheer stain.
