Fashion Week Beauty:Modern Tribal


NY Fashion Week shows are well underway and here’s a quick fresh make-up look from “NYX” that you can even try right now. Their inspiration came from The Nicholas K Spring/Summer 2014 collection which was heavily influenced by Native American tribal themes.

Sibling design team Nicholas Kunz and Christopher Kunz presented muted, earth-toned looks in light and airy shapes with white as a prominent color throughout. To compliment the collection, Lead Makeup Artist Daniel Martin for NYX Cosmetics drew inspiration from the hip, downtown “NYX woman” and Nicholas K’s Native-American influences, creating a makeup look that evoked a “Modern Tribal Warrior.”

To get the look,  don a thick headband, just like the models down the runway, keep the eye makeup neutral, and then sculpt and bring attention to the facial angles by mixing NYX Nude Matte Shadow ($4.50) in Dance the Tides, a warm rust-brown, and Skinny Dip, a deep violet, with NYX Single Eye Shadow ($4.50) in Hot Orange. This sienna color combination should then be swept across the entire eye up to the brow bone, and across the nose creating a modern, sunburnt look. Finally, lightly shaded the brows where needed using the NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil ($4.50).
