Favorite Look of NYFW: Revlon for Oscar de la Renta

I spent New York Fashion Week in sunny North Carolina visiting family, but the BEAUTY of this beloved affair did not escape my attention. Per usual, there were plenty of fabulous but unwearable looks (see stenciled wigs at Betsey Johnson) that magazine editors, bloggers, and cosmetic companies will be reinterpreting for the masses from now until fall. Then there were the fresh, rosy, midsummer’s night faces floating down the runway at Oscar de la Renta. This is the look I’ll be trying to recreate. The genius behind it is Revlon artistic director Gucci Westman, who used a Limited Edition Lip Palette in Bordeaux on lips (available in Fall 2011); ColorStay 12 Hour Eye Shadow Quad in Silver Fox ($7)—grey shade only—on eyes; Brow Fantasy in Dark Brown ($8) to create those Brooke Shields-esque brows; and ColorBurst Lipstick in Fuchsia and Candy Pink ($9). I always forget about that trick— do you ever do it?
