Makeup for fall 2014 was very practical; most looks can be easily applied by us non-makeup artists with zero difficulty, which is absolutely thrilling! Key trends to call out include deep, burgundy lips, an overall matte complexion, and neutral tones on the eyelids. See below for some of my favorite looks derived from backstage interviews and exclusive behind-the-scenes access!
At Marissa Webb, Alice Lane for Maybelline created gorgeous yet tomboy-like makeup, using all of the shades in the Expert Wear Shadow Natural Smokes Quad, and heavy on the mascara for that ultra-feminine touch by using the new Colossal Pumped Up Mascara in Very Black (will be available in May), and the micro-brush from the Falsies Big Eyes Dual-Ended Mascara on the lower lashes. My favorite part of the look was the brand new Face Studio Master Glaze Blush Stick in Coral Sheen, applied to the forward and cheeks for a great, natural glow. You’re going to LOVE this stick – it glides right on, and ies super duper fun to play with!
