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.

Hey all!  It’s been re-freaking-diculously busy these past few days, but here are some photos we snapped!  I’m flying back this afternoon, so you can expect regular postings to resume Wednesday, LOL!  It feels so weird not to be able to blog all the time :( We stopped by Bryant Park, which is where a lot of the Fashion Week action takes place, and we thought it’d be fun to snap pictures and tour the perimeter!See bits of our adventures!

Adam | Romy Soleimani

Inspiration: “The look is inspired by japanese water colour – the way colours mix, blend and diffuse when you mix them with water.”

Face: Love Rock mineralize blush duo mixed with White Frost Pigment – brushed high on cheekbones almost up to lashline for a pink watercolour haze.

Lips: Dim lip erase – blotted on to lips with fingers to slightly diminish natural lip colour.
