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.”

Eyes: Beautiful Iris eye shadow – swept lightly over eyelids. Cornflower Blue pigment – applied in a sheer layer over lids to add depth. Teal pigment – blended in a thick diffused line along lower lashline. Tealo pencil – drawn along lower lashline.

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.

Hi everyone! I just wanted to do a quick post to let you all know Pursebuzz arrived safe & sound bright and early yesterday morning! We weren’t able to check into our hotel (the lovely Waldorf Astoria) at 7am, but we totally ransacked their parlor (aka the bathroom) to get ready for the day and made it our living quarters for an hour as we did makeup and hair.

Yesterday, we met up with Koren (EnKore Makeup) for coffee and breakfast, and then all three of us headed down to MAC PRO via the subway (!!). I’m from California, so public transportation is low on the list of things to-do, so this was my first time on the NY subway system. My first subway experience was in D.C. just three years ago or so! With Koren as our guide, we totally made it to MAC PRO on time and ready for the meet & greet.

I want to give a huge, huge thank you for everyone who turned out at the meet & greet! It was really exciting to meet everyone and talk shop. It’s really flattering and feels like a total honor to be able to interact with my readers on a one-on-one basis. Those kinds of experiences are just SO rewarding and make me so happy to have started this blog! I also want to shout out and thank Bradford, MAC PRO’s Manager, for letting us use the facilities and giving us a super informative tour and background to MAC PRO! (Pictures are forthcoming, I promise!) Makeup artist Christopher Drummond also stopped by MAC PRO to meet up with us!

We totally got lost later on when we were trying to take the subway to some events we had planned, which resulted us in being so late that we missed our appointment! We made the best of it, and we ended up at Times Square with Koren (my first time there, yay!). We spent most of our time at Sephora, oogling over all of the products. After that, Pursebuzz and I got some pizza and Starbucks, headed back to the hotel, and tried not to fall asleep in the cab ;)

Now we are off to start Sunday! We’re hoping to get some pictures and more posts up tonight :) Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend!!

Just thought I’d remind anyone who might be able to make it…

E (Pursebuzz), Koren (EnKore Makeup), and I are heading to MAC PRO in NYC from 11:30am to 1:00PM on Saturday (today!), February 14th. Anyone is welcome to stop by, even if only for a few moments :) I hope to meet some of you today!
