Direct from the Runway: Twinkle Spring 2010

If you haven’t heard about Twinkle yet, go do some visual (or retail) research ASAP because the clothes are at the very top of my list. Designer Wenlan Chia totally understands whimsical comfort, especially with her structured silk dresses and Pollocks of color. Finally, a breath of spring air!

In keeping with the happiness vibe, John Paolo for M.A.C created a fresh look with edgy orange lips and huge innocent eyes. He dabbed on Orange Lipmix with a lipbrush, and only used one color, a glowy shimmer called Crush Metal (not yet out), all over eyes. He highlighted the eye area with Silver Dusk Iridescent Powder, and added fake eyelashes only to the middle of the lashline, creating huge doll-like eyes.

Fingernails were kept classy and simple with Creative Nail Design Brilliant White, topped with Ivory Coast in a matte finish. The mineralized wash look combined freshness with a romantic and edgy feel. Dana of the CND team described it as “goody girl goes punk.” Nails were shaped to a rounded square, and Dana revealed that the secret is “to round the entire nail.” A lot of people think of a rounded square as straight across with rounded sides, but Dana said this is “very unnatural.” Check out the pics to see the gorgeous nails!

Toes were kept glossy with Desert Suede topped with Ivory Coast, creating a pretty sandy beige.
