For the Alice + Olivia Spring 2010 presentation, MAC created two very different makeup looks. The first was a black super smoky eye, worn by The Plastiscines, who performed at the show.
The models, on the other hand, sported two different shades of pink shadow (Rosy Outlook and Perky) along with a white shade (Just So). Irridescent powder was applied to the cheekbones and the inner corner of the eye. Cream blush in So Sweet was blended onto the cheek, and the above pink shadows were blended together and layered on top. The brow shape was kept natural and kept in place with brow gel.
Angel Lipstick (Kim Kardashian‘s fave) was applied to lips, with Lipglass in Underage and English Accent on top. Silver dust was also mixed with moisturizer and applied to the entire body, for a ethereal glow.
Key Makeup Artist Nadine Luke emphasized that the look flatters a wide range of complexions, as evidenced by my backstage photos.
“The hair for Alice + Olivia is a crossroads of edgy and girly,” said Frédéric Fekkai. “We created a look for funky, confident women.”
Andre Rodman, Lead Stylist for Fekkai added a fun, punky edginess to the s weet, girly looks at the Alice + Olivia show. To get the look Andre twirled crimped hair around a double barreled iron in a figure eight pattern. He then pulled the front piece to the side, smoothed it with Fekkai Coiff Magnifique Ultra-Light Finishing Crème and secured it neatly with jeweled pins. Finally, Andre set the style using Full Blown Volume Lifting Hairspray.
Alice + Olivia for Payless shoes
How darling are these labels?
These boots were made for Payless…and that’s just where they’ll be. One of these days these boots are gonna come on home with me.
Impossibly chic booties – for cheap (also for Payless)!

For their Spring 2010 New York Fashion Week show, Band of Outsiders opted for minimal makeup aesthetic. Key Makeup artist James Kaliardos described the look as “Cool and healthy sun-tanned surfer girls. Non-glamorous movie makeup.”
Known for her rocker/boho creations, Anna Sui found her muse this time on the hit show Gossip Girl. The collaborative effort with Target reflects the style and personality of each of the show’s characters and combines the elements of art, punk and New York glamour in one affordable collection.
