At Jenni Kayne AW11, the inspiration for the collection was the idea of an urban woman who would have been in her 20’sÂ in the 90’s, revisiting her childhood home in the country…simple but luxurious clothing with a lot ofÂ “noble” fabrics like fur, silk and feathers.
Makeup artist Lynn Desnoyers for MAC created a look that was both glamorous and polished but had an easiness to it that reflected both the richness and easiness of the collection.Â The look consisted of a very strong magenta lip, peach toned blush for a fresh but contoured cheek, “pantyhose colors” on the eyes, brown mascara on just the top lashesÂ and creamy foundation set with powder.Â She wanted every detail to look completely honed…her fantasy ofÂ “New York aristocracy.”
Nail artist Angie Wingle for CND created what she termed “grunge all grown up” for the nails. The nail shapeÂ was natural, just cleaned up a bit, she then applied one coat of CND Desert Suede (sort of an opaque nude), one coat of copper shimmer, one coat of Rose Water (a blushing sheer pink), then finished off with one coat of Super Matte topcoat.

Great tip from Angie Wingle…when applyingÂ nail polish, lay the brush flat (as demonstrated in pic) instead of straight on,Â for a more even, clean application.
