One of my favourite runway beauty looks from NYFW is from the Cushnie et Ochs Show! What a dramatic-winged cat liner! Can anyone say “Meow”?! A perfect beauty look to go clubbing or a nice evening out about town!

I found the skin was very dewy and foundation was minimal, so I opted for a radiant pink-toned primer to give me a brighter complexion. Then I followed that with some liquid-based corrector/illuminator/concealer under the eyes and also spot-treated any parts of my face that had a bit of redness. I sort of used it like a foundation and just blended it out into a thin layer. I didn’t set it with any powder to maintain the dewy finish.

Next I followed that by some soft sculpting with a shimmer contour and highlight duo just under the cheekbones, down the sides of my nose, temples and jawline, blending everything out with a soft blush brush. Boy! I definitely need to suck in my cheeks to get that chiseled model-look though!

For the eyes, I started off with some primer, since my eyelids tend to be super oily. This will help the eyeliner stay put all day! I used a liquid liner pen with a super fine tip to map out the general cat-eye shape and then filled it in. I didn’t quite extend it as far or as dramatic as they did for the catwalk, so that the look could actually be worn in public!

The bottom lash line was kept clean, however I did grab some of that highlight colour from the sculpting duo and added a light shimmer to the inner corners of my eyes to make them pop! I curled my wimpy lashes and used some lengthening mascara and also made my brows quite bold!

I finished off by softly dabbing some light pink lipstick onto my lips for a playful pout, but making sure not to take away the focus from my eyes! Then did a final finishing spray all over the face, which helped the makeup last longer and also gave an overall dewy finish to my skin!

Now off to strut my stuff down the runway…or maybe the grocery aisle!
