Each New York Fashion Week season, I head backstage before the shows to document the upcoming beauty trends. Last year, I came home with a memory card full of bare faced beauties – or seemingly bare faced, since the no makeup look often requires the most makeup. While a natural look can be absolutely gorgeous and accessible to just about anyone, I have to admit that I look forward to the more outlandish makeup – the ones that make me go “ooooh, I wonder if I can pull that off.” It’s a little more fun to experiment with, you know? This season, I had a myriad of bold looks to choose from, and the citrus-hued eyes at Karen Walker were a major standout. Paired with a completely neutral face (even the brows were bleached), the bright eyes were the complete focus: one color, no mascara, no dark liner – super clean and modern, with a dramatic wing. I haven’t tried it out just yet, but I made myself a short list of products that would do the trick, when I’m feeling daring (see below for products). As for the brow bleaching? I might leave that one to the models.

Row one: Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams in shades 23 and 10
Row two: Sugar Pill Pressed Eyeshadows in Acidberry and Flamepoint
