NYFW Beauty How To: Steven Alan Spring 2015 featured image

Makeup artist Katey Denno went for a naturally radiant skin with a pop of bright lip color for the Steven Alan Spring Fashion show. Here’s how you can get this look at home!

1. Glowing, dewy skin was a critical part of the overall aesthetic and to deliver a truly ethereal glow so Katey prepped the skin with a Jenette Be Happy Toning Mist ($25) and applied a few drops of Burt’s Bees Radiance Serum ($18).

2. Then, she applied a sheer wash foundation to the T-zone only using a Dermablend Foundation Brush ($33) for the lightest of application. A dampened Beauty Blender ($20) was then patted over the foundation for the perfect natural looking finish.

3. For luminosity and dimension, a lightly shimmer-infused sheer highlighting cream, Polkadots and Moonbeams from Ilia Beauty ($34), was applied to the places on the face where light first reflects: bridge of the nose, cheekbones, apples of the cheeks, cupids bow and eyelids. Katey used a Vert feathery stippling brush for maximum effect and sheerest application.

4. For eyes, Katey applied no shadow or liner to keep the focus on the lip and skin. She simply curled the lashes and brushed the brows upward and at an angle to emphasize the models’ natural arch. W3ll People Brow Pigment Powder ($16) was lightly feathered into the outer 1/3 of the brow.

5. To finish the look and create the focal point Katey took the custom matched Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon ($9) and filled the models lips in with layers of color building to the desired intensity. She used her ring finger to pat a bit more color to the center of the lips for added definition.

6. Lastly, Katey applied Vapour Beauty Concealer ($24) to the under eye area to combat dark circles and around the nose to eliminate any remaining redness or discoloration.
