|multi-tasking on a model|
NAIL Trends for Fall 2013---solid colors at practically every show we went to ---here-- using a pretty pale beige-y pink using Revlon ColorStay Nail Enamel in Tradewinds.
According to Westman---and we are quoting the handout-"I wanted to create a look that was dark and ominous...I was inspired by the classic film, Rosemary's Baby, so this look is all about the eyes. I combined smoky grey shadows with ultra heavy black liner and piled on extra lashes for a mysterious and sultry look. To contrast with the gritty textures on the eyes, I kept the girls skin soft and pretty and gave lips a natural flush."
