Not surprisingly, our new First Lady, Michelle Obama, was the beauty inspiration at one of the fashion shows at New York Fashion Week '09 - Baby Phat. I found the Baby Phat look not only extremely pretty, but very wearable.
Makeup artist James Kaliardos used MAC Studio Sculpt Boundation on the skin and added a hint of MAC Pink Swoon Blush at the top of the cheekbones. Kaliardos used a sweep of MAC Drizzle Gold Eye Shadow across the lids, and added cocoa shadow on the brow bone to give the illusion of separation of the lid from the brow bone. Then, he added a hint of gold glitter on the inside corner of the eye for radiance and swept a very light coating of glitter across the lids to catch runway lights. Kaliardos also added individual false lashes for a natural, yet filled-out effect. He finished the eyes with lots of MAC Zoom Lash Mascara in Black. Finally, he applied MAC Lipglass in Partial to Pink to the lips.
