Shirts vs Skin

In competition with the clothing trends at 2011 NY Fall Fashion Week (peplum, velvet, pencil skirts), was the dewy skin trend.  From back stage at Alice + Olivia (she also wielded her brushes at Milly and Yigal Azrouel), MAC regional trainer (and my sister-in-law!), Mary Cadmus , gives us the how-to on getting the moisture-kissed skin we saw at so many shows.

1)  Hydrate skin with a substantial moisturizer

2)  Apply MAC face and body foundation

3)  Powder t-zone (above eyebrows, down nose, nostrils) with MAC mineralize skinfinish

To look like Columba (above), first lose about 50 pounds and then add a matte brick-orange/red lip, intense black liner on the lid, and mascara to the top lashes only.  Voila!  You're a supermodel.
