Get the look : DKNY at NYFW ‘All about Orange’

Yesterday I filmed Xpose for Buff Makeup. We wanted to recreate a look that was seen everywhere at NYFW. Orange lips took centre stage at a lot of the shows and are set to be a huge trend for S/S 2014. nyfw-orange-lips-623 Renowned make up artist Charlotte Willer created this look for the  DKNY show. Lips were a bright orange with completely nude eye paired with glowing skin and a flush of colour on the cheek.   I decided to do a matte eye using creams and browns with one coat of mascara and a full brow. The model we used was the beautiful Roz Purcell who was a pleasure to work with as always. photo (99)saa   (Me and the gorgeous Roz) Full Product List Face Buff Camera Ready Primer Buff Sheer Glow 'Movie Star' Buff HD Foundation C35 Buff Concealer Buff Dual Powder C3 Buff Make Up Bronzer Buff Icing Sugar to highlight Buff Blusher 'Big O' Eyes 'Urban' eyeshadow used in brows 'Ochre' in socket 'Pebbles' on lid and brow bone Buff Intense Mascara Lips Buff  'Orange Crush' lipstick Buff  'Watermelon' gloss Brushes used were Blank Canvas photo (100)siderozzz   You can buy Buff Make up online at or in Hessions in Drumcondra and Clontarf.
