Created Effortless Makeup During Market Week For Donna Karan International

http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js_uacct = “UA-3446372-1”; urchinTracker();

During Donna Karan International Market Week I created a different makeup look each day. It’s always easy to execute the looks that I have in my creative head when working with gorgeous canvas. 

Today’s look was inspired by my love for exotic locations like Capri. An island in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the Sorrentine Peninsula, on the south side of the Gulf of Naples in the Campania region of Italy

I love to see beautiful women made up but effortless makeup is best. So I selected products from L’OREAL Paris, Stila Cosmetics, and Nicka K New York. This is my twist on a modern day Capri Girl visting New York, wear Donna Karan, rocking Paul Andrew sexy shoes.

My makeup palette for today’s look. I wanted rich warm brown  and coral colors so I selected makeup items from L’OREAL Paris, Stila cosmetics and Nicka K New York to create the makeup looks for Donna Karan Market Week.

Bridal Beauty:Go Nude on Your Wedding Day

written by Connecticut and New York Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis

This season bold, bright colors are popping up everywhere from eye shadows, lipsticks, nail polishes, clothing, handbags and shoes. Not all brides are fans of color and for these brides – less is always more. Some brides prefer the “barely there” nude makeup. The nude makeup look is a classic one that will never go out of style, but it has been revised. Creating the nude look this season is all about giving the bride an illuminated face. Her skin should look hydrated, natural and fresh. No heavy blush and definitely no heavy contouring. This is a great look for a destination bride because the dewy look always works best at a beach wedding instead of a matte face and lip.

So now you are a glowing bride on your wedding day!

Here are the makeup items I used to create this glamxurious look on my bride Erica.

*Rodial Glamtox Eye Pen
*L’OREAL Paris True Match Foundation #N5 True Beige
*L’OREAL Paris True Match Powder #N5 True Beige

*M.A.C pigment in Vanilla
*L’OREAL Paris HIP Studio Secrets Professional Metallic Duo Eye shadow in Energized
*L’OREAL Paris HIP Studio Secrets Professional Creamliner in Brown
*L’OREAL Paris Double Extend Eye Illuminator in Black Quartz
*L’OREAL Paris True Match Powder Blush in Soft Sun

*NARS Lipstick in Aura
*SMASHBOX Lipenhancing Lipgloss in Aura
