Cristina Ruales-Backstage #NYFW SS'16 Futuristic&Modern

Out Hotel, NYC

It's been awhile since we were at a fashion event-at the Out Hotel's oasis-like verdant outdoor space -located to the far west of bustling Times Square...
Mercifully-the weather was sunny---and gave the INGLOT makeup team-led by Mahasin Phillips..a no special lights needed-for the flawless applications on the models' faces.

The focus -was on one element-the eyes-using a striking silver that worked on several skin tones. Think of it as the eye shadow equivalent of red lipstick-so bold-the rest of the face is kept neutral.

Worked TOTALLY for the Brooklyn based designer-CRISTINA RUALES SS'16 collection.

THE 411:

 MAHASIN PHILLIPS---makes sure it looks fab on a screen too!
 MakeUp by Inglot


The Inspiration: Flawless porcelain skin. A striking, metallic silver pigment blended onto the entire eyelid and lower lash line-for a soft yet brilliant eye. A healthy nude lip with a hint of gloss in the center.
