Runway Holiday Makeup Trends 2009

As the holiday season approaches, we prepare ourselves for Christmas and New Year’s Eve celebrations. As seen backstage for Tamara Pogosian Holiday 2010 fashion show in NYC, it was all about colored cheeks or bold lips. Makeup Artist Stephanie Flor created the makeup look. It was fun and original, and perfect for any occasion.

Inspired by the movement of Twilight: New Moon, Stephanie muted the colors on the face to add a dramatic effect with an intense dark red lip and angel white eyes.

Using a rich white shadow (Cover Girl Golden Sunset) Stephanie covered the upper lid and blended it to the brow bone. The eyebrows were combed upward with clear gel. White liner (Covergirl starlightening white) was applied to the inner rim of the models eye’s to add that special touch.

Model’s face was prepped with Keihl’s moisturizer and Smashbox HD primer. Covergirl foundation was used all over the face and Covergirl’s Pressed Shine Powder was dusted ONLY over the models t-zone to give a matte finish. Using Lash Blast Mascara she coated the top and bottom lashes in a thick black layer to make it visible from the runway.

For a quick makeup change, the makeup artist used the white inspired angel eye from the previous look, but substituted the dark lip with a classic nude. Then applied a pink colored blush to the apple of cheeks. This trick brought definition to the model’s cheekbones and an extra pop to her new look. “My personal favorite Nude is Smashbox Elegant,” said Stephanie Flor.

After all it’s the holidays, try something new and experiment with these two runway makeup look. “Remember, its all about colored cheeks or colored lips for Holiday 2009” said Stephanie Flor.
