VPL by Victoria Bartlett Fall 2009 Fashion Backstage Runway

The Saturday showing of VPL by Victoria Bartlett embraced the “dewy, fresh look” trend that seems to be dominant on the runway for Fall 2009. Makeup artist Romy Soleimani for MAC Cosmetics says, “The look is a dewy, fresh look, which is kind of moody at the same time. The same colors are applied to the lips and we are highlighting an playing up that dewiness even more.”

The cream colors on the eyelids are brown and oak and layered with a gloss on top called Instant Gold. The face is flawless with Studio Sculpt foundation (believe me, I’ve tried this foundation and can literally sing praises from the rooftops!). The eyes look stunning, don’t they? You can achieve this look by applying Dusk and Midtone Sepia color on the eyelid and crease. Make sure the color gets more concentrated by the lash line.

Apply Pearl eyeshadow on the inner corner of the eye with a 224 brush. Then dust the top of the eye with Instant Gold Luster Glass.

As with many MAC shows this Fashion Week, there was no mascara applied to the eyelids, which is pretty funny when you consider the fact that long lashes (with Latisse etc.) are all the rage right now. But life is all about oxymorons, isn’t it?

The lips were colored with Midtone Sepia and Dusk lip gloss and Voile Slimshine lipstick.
