Backstage with Stila for Rebecca Minkoff
This NYFW season, I covered more “no makeup makeup” looks than I can count. While they’re always very pretty and require much more makeup than you’d imagine, I always jumped for joy when there was more than a dewy glow on a model’s face. The “Mod Maven” look at Rebecca Minkoff, created by Sarah Lucero of Stila Cosmetics, was especially note-worthy due to the simplicity of the products and application. A simple, pinky neutral eye (no liner, just mascara) and matching cheeks, defined brow, and dark, matte lips lend a nod to the ease of 90s beauty, which paired perfectly with Rebecca Minkoff’s masculine-meets-feminine silhouettes. Something this easily recreated at home is likely to become a strong trend for Fall, and as Sarah states, “Oxblood is the new power pout.” A strong assertion for an equally strong statement lip.
