NYFW Runway vs. My Way: Wearable Retro ’60s Makeup

Pair retro ’60s with a laid back California coastal vibe and you get the covetable makeup look seen at Nanette Lepore’s Spring/Summer 2015 fashion show. This fresh-faced yet fashion forward look is a little over-the-top for day but with a few subtle tweaks, I think I made it suitable enough for everyday. Here’s how I got the look:

Butter London Global Colour Ambassador, Katie Jane Hughes, created this insanely-simple-to-replicate silver nail that was inspired by a mirage. It’s essentially a deconstructed manicure. Fantastic in all of its imperfections. She did that intentionally to prevent the sparkly silver nail color from looking “too costume-y”. I recreated it because it’s pretty much the ideal style of manicure or nail art for my busy lifestyle. I did this look in about three minutes. No joke. Here’s how to get the look: Continue reading
