KATE SPADE F/W 2013

Not a brand to shy away from bold beauty, or overindulge in “neutrals” (one of the biggest nyfw show crimes, in my opinion!) Kate Spade is season after season, one of my favorite backstages to document.

It’s just so good to attend a show that is FUN! With equally fun hair and makeup.

Jouer’s Neil Scibelli created a flawless matte look with standout cat eye, and red lip, envisioned as a “traditional ode to New York”, especially influenced by the Warhol 70’s, and Studio 54.

To get the look:

Skin: Jouer Matte Moisture Tint was used to create a matte base.
Eyes: Jouer Powder Eyeshadow in Crème as a base with Jouer Powder Eyeshadow in Amaretto on the crease. Eyes were lined cat eye style with Jouer Liquid Shimmer Liner in Panther. Then topped off with Jouer Everyday Classic Wear Mascara.
Cheeks: Jouer Tint in Honeysuckle
Lips: Jouer’s Hydrating Lipstick in Simone, finished with a gloss of Essential Lip Enhancer.

Deborah Lippmann, who always creates some of the most exciting nail art at nyfw impressed me once again with her unique take on nails for the Kate Spade girl.

To get the two looks:

#1: Deborah Lippmann Fade to Black polish topped with a stud 1/8 of an inch from the cuticle.
#2: A custom pink shade was created just for the show. But Deborah Lippman explained the same color could be achieved by doing the following: First, paint nails with a base of white shade Amazing Grace. Next, paint one coat of I Kissed A Girl, finishing with one coat of Between The Sheets.
To apply the studs to both looks, Lippmann recommends buying open-backed studs (not flat back, so the glue is hidden under the base of the stud) and glueing 1 to each nail.
