Nicholas K Fall 2012
With the first presentations for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York kicking off February 9, here is a roundup of the latest beauty news from the US fashion capital.

It looks as though fingers on the runways are set to get even more stylish as MAC senior artist Keri Blair recently revealed the beauty brand will be doing nails for New York Fashion Week for the very first time. Blair will be custom designing nail art creations for shows including Zac Posen, Nicholas K., Ohne Titel, and ICB by Prabal Gurung.

“For me, as a makeup artist with an intense passion for all things nails, I think it seems like an obvious choice,” Blair was quoted as saying in Refinery29, before offering her tips on what trends to keep eyes peeled for.

“We’re known for color, so be on the lookout for some great shades ranging from nudes to deep jewel tones to even some of our most beloved lip colors that will soon be available in polish form,” added the beauty expert.

Blair and other MAC pro artists will be revealing backstage news from Fashion Week via Twitter accounts @MAC_Keri_B and @MACCosmetics.

Other New York Fashion Week beauty favorites such as Bobbi Brown and Maybelline will also be keeping fans up-to-date via Twitter, while a behind-the-scenes video from BCBGMax Azria, whose show was one of the first presentations to take place February 9, has also gone online and can be seen here:

Maybelline’s global makeup artist Charlotte Willer worked on the makeup looks and told Fashionologie about the low-key concept.

“It’s about beautiful skin; a soft, dewy look. Then, it’s a lightly filled-in eyebrow, a simple smudge of eyeliner on the top eyelid, and a little bit of brown-gray shadow smudged on top of that. Then lip balm, and that’s it,” said Willer.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York runs until February 16. For details on live streamed shows visit –AFP RELAXNEWS
