NYFW: Backstage Beauty at Mara Hoffman

The fall 2012 runway collection at Mara Hoffman showcased a bevy of cool prints, neutral colors, flowy dresses and draping. So it was no surprise that the backstage beauty at Mara Hoffman was a perfect dewey/sun-kissed look to complement the collection.

Make Up For Ever artist, Lottie, drew inspiration from the 90s for the look.  “The girls are looking like they’re riding through the desert on horses,” she says. “They’re very drawn and sun-kissed.”

What I love about this look is that not only is it easy to do at home but works for all skin types. Dewey skin is in!

Lottie says it’s easy to replicate at home. “A contour and a nice brown shimmer eyeshadow on the lid works great for a day look.”
