Fashion Week: Get The Look – Oscar de la Renta S/S 15…

Get The Look – Oscar de la Renta S/S 15!  The beauty look for Oscar de la Renta at NYFW was a soft, pretty and wearable creation from makeup artist Gucci Westman for Hourglass.  It was classic and polished with a dash of modern edge. Backstage at Tuesday’s show, models including Karlie Kloss flaunted luminous skin, berry-stained lips and, striking a slightly rebellious note, dramatic winged liner on the eyes.  I gotta say, I love that Gucci used my favorite Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette to give skin that GLOW!  If you don’t have that in your arsenal…it is a must have now that it’s part of the permanent collection and the Illusion skin tint is always STUNNING (review of that coming soon!)
