Beautiful Makeup at Milly

Oh, Milly ... how I love thee. Let me count the ways. And of course I must start with the absolutely beautiful makeup seen on the runway for Fall 2008 Fashion Week. With glowing skin, slightly defined eyes and vibrant red lips, the look was classic and elegant with just the subtlest touch of glamour. MAC's First Look has some amazing pictures and descriptions of how to achieve the look, which was conceptualized by makeup artist Romy Soleimani -- here are some highlights.

ExamplePress M.A.C Studio Sculpt Foundation onto your skin with a brush, then apply Nude Creme Colour Base into the corners of your eyes and cheekbones for added glimmer.

ExampleEyes were kept on the simple side -- which was not the norm for the fall runways, making it a welcome change from all the smokiness seen about. To get this look, apply M.A.C Studio Moistureblend Concealer where needed and then smudge Smolder Eye Pencil into the root of your top and bottom lashlines with an eyeliner brush. Curl both your top and bottom lashes and finish with a light coat of Zoom Lash Mascara. While I love a good smoky eye -- especially in blues and purples -- it was definitely nice to see something different here.

ExampleHow sexy is a deep red lip? Gwen Stefani, Scarlett Johansson and other glamour chicks have certainly got it right. Made the focus at Milly, red lips were vibrant and gorgeous as the models came down the runway. To get the look, apply M.A.C Desire Lipstick from the center of your lips outward with a lip brush, then pat with your fingers to create a slight stained look. Matte is back!
