Yay, New York Fashion Week is here! So far, I've worked a few fun shows, enjoyed some fab parties and met lots of great people. More to come on that... But to start, I kicked off the week bright and early on Day 1 with Vena Cava. The presentation style show was sponsored by the new collaboration of cosmetics giant MAC Cosmetics and the full-service photo studio, Milk (where many major advertising campaigns and fashion editorials are shot).

I assisted key makeup artist Lloyd Simmons in creating a taupey, smokey eye (later covered by the shades ;) and a gorgeous lavender lip. He mixed the unusual shade using white, burgundy, red and blue LipMix by MAC, which is a very opaque and highly pigmented lip product designed for pros. I loved it!
The nails were also an exciting, quirky color, a mixture of two polishes by Butter London. The vibrant hue was said to have been inspired by a Staples flyer and was dubbed "Corporate Blue".
