Backstage w/ Kevyn Aucoin at Clover Canyon Fall 2014 Collection

I got the opportunity to go backstage with Kevyn Aucoin, an iconic beauty brand, during New York Fashion Week for two shows, Clover Canyon and KaufmanFranco (separate post coming soon). I always love the brand’s fashion week looks because they execute a “glam” face in a very effortless way.

The Face

Lead makeup artist Deanna Melluso created a look to accompany the green-grassy themes showcased in the collection. The eye was accomplished with an eyeshadow in Citrine and Essential Eye Palette #4. Rose lip balm was applied over the citrine eyeshadow to create a glossy eye.

For the skin, she used the liquid airbrush foundation over the primed skin developer. On the cheeks there is a mixture of two colors, The creamy Glow in Patrice and Duo/Bloodroses along with highlighter. The lips were also a mixture of two Kevyn Aucoin colors in Bloodroses and Dantrice to create a wine lip color.

The Hair

The hair was curled into pin curls for volume and then swept back into a wispy french braid-chignon hybrid.

The Nails

The nails executed beautifully by the Morgan Taylor Team are a custom blend of two of their colors Later Alligator and Little Black Dress.
