NEW YORK SS12 MAKEUP TREND REPORT
Renowned for it's chic-cool esthetique and forever classic style, the make-up seen on the catwalks at NYFW this season, payed homage to the city's famed un-done but polished personality. It's all about low-maintanance beauty, with high-glamour results, achieved with minimal effort, typical of the trendy New Yorker girl. Think sophisticated nudes in ambers, peaches and warm yellows & earthy browns, blues, greys and beyond to create a luxe look tailored with a New Yorker resiliance.
MICRO TREND: 60's liner & lip's á la Sophia Loren but with a modern edge which takes the iconic look straight into 2012. Think winged liner, but not just on the lash line, joined into the crease of the eye too for extra-drama.
