Tanya Taylor is a relatively new (and new to me!) designer on the NYFW scene. Gathering a fair amount of buzz after just one season, Taylor’s second collection showcased her love of prints, and an updated, quirky vision of ladylike style.
Backstage, international lead makeup artist Uzo, for NARS created a summery 1960’s inspired look that channeled actress Natalie Wood.
The products used:
FACE: Sheer Glow Foundation, Copacabana Illuminator, and Copacabana Multiple (applied to cheekbones only).
EYES: PRO-PRIME Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, All About Eve Duo Eyeshadow (pink side),Larger Than Life Lengthening Mascara, and Bali, Bengali, or Blondie Eyeshadow (on brows).
LIPS: Tonga Lip Liner Pencil, Bolero Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, and Barbarella Lipstick.

ESSIE manicurist Gina Edwards designed a different take on the staple French manicure: matte black tips!
The rounded nails were first painted using “Au Natural”, with the french tip painted with “Licorice”. “Matte About You” topcoat finished the look. Toes were painted with “Au Natural”.
Stylist Allen Wood for Bumble and Bumble continued to carry on with the 1960’s inspiration, styling hair into two looks: sleek ponytails, and pony’s with head scarves, made from scraps of Tanya’s fabric from the collection.
Tanya Taylor has definitely earned a place on my “designers to watch” list for her clever use of pattens, and updated take on classic pieces like skirts and blazers.
