New York Fashion Week: Backstage At Karen Walker Fall 2015

Sometimes when you're looking at fall shows, you get a lot of dark, dark, dark.  That's one of the reasons the Karen Walker Fall 2015 beauty look was such a breathe of fresh air, with its beautiful turquoise eye and matching nail, complemented with an effortlessly chic hairstyle. 

Jordan M led the Bumble and Bumble team to give this 1970's-inspired 'do, but he wanted it to be a sort of timeless look that could be worn today.  It's kind of a cool, glamorous look, but not meant to look like you're trying to hard.  He worked with the models' natural textures to make sure it wasn't too fussy.  He started styling each model with Bumble and Bumble Prep, because it's basically the ultimate go-to styling primer/detangler.  Each girl got an ample amount of Does It All Styling Spray at the front of the hair, and then it was blown out using a round brush to get that 70's Farrah Fawcett wave.  

Benjamin Puckey led the Sephora Pro team for this dramatic eye look.  He started with Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick in the appropriate shade for each model, and then contoured the cheeks with the Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette.  To finish the skin, he used Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone, Pearl, or Topaz (depending on the model's skin tone) on the high points of the face and cupid's bow.  
Next, the eyes were lined with Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil 12Hr Wear Waterproof in #14 (Cocoa).  The dual-toned eye was created using Sephora Collection Colorful Eyeshadow Shimmer in #86 (Tiramisu) from the middle of the eye, outward, and on the other side of the eye, he used the bright matte turquoise shade (Gonzo) from the Urban Decay Electric Pressed Pigment Palette.
The eyes were finished with a healthy amount of Sephora Collection Outrageous Volume Dramatic Volume Mascara.
The makeup look was finished off with a beautiful nude lip using Sephora Collection Rouge Cream Lipstick in SR30 (Love Life).  
The nail team was led by Jin Soon Choi, giving the models one of the prettiest, shiniest teal nails you'll ever see.  She started with JINsoon Power Coat as the base, and then gave each girl 2 coats of JINsoon Heirloom, finished with JINsoon Top Gloss.
