Make-Up Artist
magazine's beauty editor, Melissa MacGillivray, got a backstage view of the make-up trends emerging from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week's NY Fall 2011 shows. "Come fall, we'll be seeing a lot of creamy skin and minimal foundation, cream blush applied with the fingers for a glowing flush and stained lips in shades ranging from the palest violet to the deepest wine," MacGillivray said. "Cool color schemes dominated: think smoky gray eye shadows paired with lips washed in mulberry. Missing from the usual set of beauty staples? Eye and lip liner."

See highlights from the shows below. All artists were working with M.A.C. unless otherwise noted.

U.K. team collaborates for a different 'Alice in Wonderland' - Tuesday August 04, 2009
U.K. team collaborates for a different 'Alice in Wonderland'
On a cold and cloudy Oxford afternoon, U.K. make-up artist Sarah Terry collaborated with photographer Rebecca Parkes, hairstylist Sean Butt and designer Bibian Blue to create this dark vision of Alice in Wonderland. The Victorian and Edwardian eras inspired Terry to contrast creams and gold hues with vibrant reds and smoky blacks. Appliqués, feathers, nail art and Butts’ elaborate hair design gave the looks texture. This particular Alice (Samantha Wilkinson) and White Rabbit (Blossom Blois) look innocent, but there’s a hint of mischief here, too. Let’s follow them down the path, shall we?
