Vena Cava @ NYFW Fall/Winter 2011

“It’s a bit French and a bit rock ‘n’ roll… greasy, sexy, and cool.  Makeup is the accessory, the perfect jewel… Playful, but chic.” — Christian McCulloch

Makeup How-to:

  • Eyes: A blend of MAC Silver and 3D Silver PRO Glitter and Reflects Purple Duo applied with PRO Shine Mixing Medium over the eyelids and through lower lashes for a smoky, show-stopping effect. Brows groomed upwards with Clear Brow Set.
  • Lips: Subculture Lip Pencil lightly contours lip with Petting Pink Tinted Lip Conditioner SPF 15 for a healthy, natural finish.
  • Face: Select Moisturecover applied sparingly for a natural finish. Strobe Cream for a subtle highlight over cheekbones.

Looks nothing like a vena cava. Why would they even name it Vena Cava? What is the story behind the name and face? Anyhow, I give it a W-as in Withdrawal.

Any word on any other A/W collections coming out? I’m hearing rumblings about pro-longwear cream eyeshadows in some amazing shades. Also, a few new lipsticks & foundations. Can’t wait!
