FASHION WEEK FRIDAY….
I originally was going to do fashion week trends every Sunday, but decided EVERY Friday would be better to get you up to date before the weekend, in case you want to try one of the looks for a day or night out!
So here it is, Friday Look #1 is brought straight to YOU from the Spring/Summer 2012 Fashion Week! This is from the designer Wes Gordon. At his show, the makeup look is fresh, the nail style is bold, and there hair is effortless! Heres the details…
NEW YORK FASHION WEEK S/S 2012
Wes Gordon’s luxe-for-the-youth collection for New York Fashion Week was fresh-faced and optimistic for the spring season. ”She’s sleek and civilized, but she might scratch your eyes out” remarked Wes of his collection’s muse.
“The makeup at Wes Gordon is fresh, young, and elegant,” said Maybelline New York Global Makeup Artist Charlotte Willer. “The skin is dewy, the brow is strong, and the lip pops with sheer color.” To get the young and sophisticated spring look, Charlotte first applied Maybelline Fit Me! Foundation for flawless skin, then created strong brows using Maybelline Define-A-Brow Eyebrow Pencil two shades darker than models’ natural brow color. For a youthful glow, Charlotte applied Maybelline Fit Me! Blush in Medium Coral. She then stained the center of lips with Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor in Very Cherry, a sheer bright red. Charlotte also dabbed Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in Quenched over lips and eyes for an overall dewy effect.
To complement the spirited and retro vibe of the designs, CND manicurist Kristina Estabrooks crafted rounded nails into an almond shape and applied two coats of CND Colour in Poppyfield, a stunning, nearly-neon shade of coral. Toes were kept clean and neutral with CND Colour in Desert Suede.

SO, HOW DO “YOU” GET THIS…REGARDLESS OF THE “BRAND YOU CHOOSE” FOR BEAUTY, THINK TANGERINE…
FOR NAILS, WE USED CND COLOUR “POPPYFIELD” BACKSTAGE
FOR FASHION…THINK COLOR BLOCKING..THAT MEANS MIXING BOLD OR BRIGHT WITH CLASSIC COLORS..
So, I hope this inspires you to try even “One” of the looks in your own way this weekend.
