As the days roll on during the countdown of Fashion Week as always each brand has created a key look that represents what the brand is trying to exude for that season. BCBG was all about the low maintenance girl. Throw your hair in a low pony, whip on some gloss and you're out the door yet still dressed fabulously. From totally minimalist down to a rocker edge there seems to have been a bit of bi-polar-esque looks across the runways...
At the Rachel Zoe Fall 2012 show the girls looked like they were straight out of the 'school of hard knocks' with black, punk rock eye makeup. As a black eyeliner junkie and fan of beauty icon's Bridget Bardot and Marianne Faithful I really fell in love with this makeup although it's not for everybody. This looks focus was meant to draw attention to the eye area and they definitely drew you in with a clearly defined sideways v that was drawn on thin towards the eye's inner crease and then blended out to a tip with more shading around the lash line. This look could be created very easily, all you need is a great neutral beige-pink eyeshadow such as Kevyn Aucoin's Single Eyeshadow in Blush and Noir Cosmetics Long Wear Eye Pencil which will allow you to create the definition. Grab your favorite set of lashes or Ellis Faas Mascara and your eyes are done! Keep the rest of the look minimal by sweeping a soft bronzer across the apples of your cheeks such as Jouer's Mineral Powder Bronzer and a seductive and neutral beige lip with Armour Beauty's Opaque Lip Gloss in Edie.
Voila! If all went well, accessorize with your fav motorcycle jacket and you should look like a girl straight out of the 60's-70's with a bit of a modern edge. If not....thank god for eyemakeup remover.
