NYFW Fall/Winter 2014, 2015 Backstage Beauty Trend Report: Get The Noon By Noor Vixen Look In 3 Easy Steps - Neutral Eyes, Dewy Skin, Burgandy Lips

Emphasizing dark lips, bushy brows and sleek ponies, the models at the Noon By Noor Fall/Winter 2014 show rocked “a sophisticated girl with a rebellious streak” vibe that screamed ultimate sophistication.

Styled completely by MAC Cosmetics, key stylist Neil Young went easy on the eyes and created a stunning dark lip to add drama to the look. For added contrast, skin was left dewy and ultimately flawless. To get this runway-ready look for yourself, follow this beauty breakdown in 3 easy steps.

Step 1: Glowing Face

To get that ethereal, glowing complexion, it’s important to start with a clean face. Cancelling out all my imperfections, I used the Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream first to get that flawless canvas. Then, to get rid of unwanted dark circles and bags under my eyes, the Mally Dual Core Eye Brightening CC Concealer glides easily on the skin and color-corrects fast.

When you’re ready to glow like a pro, the Beauty ADDICTS GlimmerSHEERS in Express luminizes cheeks immediately for that healthy-looking complexion. Blend well onto cheeks and set with a glow or finishing powder for that mega-watt shine.

Step 2: Neutral Eyes

One of the key elements of this look has to be a neutral eye, as the deep and sultry lip is the focus. With that in mind, I used the Clinique All About Shadow Quad for that natural finish that helped my eyes pop just a little.

To give my lashes some added pep, I opted for a light sweep of mascara instead of a full coat, as you still want the look to appear more natural. Big brows seem to be sticking around too, so to get my brows in shape, I used a brow brow to brush them into place.

Step 3: Dramatic Lips

For high-impact drama, dress up your lips with the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Moderncraft Lip Tar Collection in Black Metal Dahlia to complete the look.

MAC Cosmetics Cham Pale Video, Swatches and Review

Pinterest

I’m sure many MAC fans remember with great fondness, the Warm & Cozy Collection from 2009. How phenomenal was that line? I LOVED it and still have special pieces from that collection I swear by, even today.

In time for winter, MAC Cosmetics has unveiled its very special Cham Pale (a pun on “champagne”) collection that not only has cuvee-inspired color offerings but skincare treats as well. Our vlogger, Nat Neagle, has given you a very thorough walk through of her collection favorites in the video below:

MAC Cham Pale Collection

Everything about this collection addresses the sparkle of the holiday season: there are lip gelees with sparkle, frosted lipsticks, nail lacquers with a touch of iridescence and highlighting powders that look like crinkled paper…JOY!

MAC Cham Pale

The skincare component of this collection addresses….you guessed it…hydration. From the redness reducing comfort cream to the lavender- scented lip conditioner, each piece is a skincare work of art.

MAC Cham Pale Comfort Cream

The names in this collection give me the goose bumps too. They invoke such a Narnia Snow Queen image: the “Caviar Dreams” eye shadow is a lovely darker frosty shade to remind you of overcast wintry days; the lipstick in “Flustered” is a soft bronze frosty shade that will give your face a muted, yet impactful look; the Paint Pot called “Chilled on Ice” is for the ice maiden in you.

I also love that this collection works well for darker skins too, because the frosty shades come alive on chocolate brown skin. Take a look:
