New York Fashion Week Backstage at Karen Walker with CND, Shiseido and

Show 2 of Saturday was Karen Walker’s presentation at the Altman Building.  With a focus all on striking red lips, and sheer washes of color, the look was soft with just a hint of pop.

Nails by Angie Wingle of CND

Inspired by the sheer wash of color on the model’s eyes and face, and by the playful yet feminine look for Karen Walker Fall 2010, Angie Wingle and the CND team went with Rose Water on model’s nails. A cool sheer that plays up the color of the  skin and nails, Rose Water is one of those polishes that every girl must have in their polish wardrobe. Completely buildable, and every-day wearable, Rose Water is all sexy femininity, and perfect for the look of Karen Walker’s show.

Hair by Rolando Beauchamp of Bumble and Bumble

For Karen Walker, the hair look revolved around a messy ponytail that was kept tight and tidy both on the sides and underneath the head. The hair on top was back combed through with the fingers, so as to not give the look too much rigid structure, and the ponytail was given texture thanks to Bumble and Bumble Does It All Styling Spray. All in all, the hair was designed to play up model’s features and draw attention to the star of the show, the red lip. 

Makeup by Jenna Maynard for Shiseido 

For makeup, the look was all about the red lip. Keeping the face and eyes simple, models were treated to deep crimson pouts, designed to stand out on the otherwise neutral, earthy, clothing color palette. The eyes were given soft definition with sheer tones, and cheeks were contoured slightly with matte bronzing powder.
Another look where the focus was all on the dramatic lip, Karen Walker did not disappoint.
