“Gossip Girl”-Style Camping At Isaac Mizrahi?
It was the last day of Fashion Week, and despite having to hobble around on heels that made our feet burn, backstage at Isaac Mizrahi’s show was coolishly refreshing. Because Isaac cited “camping on the Upper East Side” of Manhattan as part of the inspiration for his fall collection, makeup artist Val Garland made them look as chilly as they would if they were sleeping outdoors on one of New York’s coldest evenings. She used MAC Prep and Prime powder to matte-ify the skin and create what she called an all-around “frosty and frozen” look, applied Vanilla Eye Shadow to lighten the models’ lids, and used Lip Pencil in Naked, which is actually really wearable and pretty. We’re not sure we’ll go full-on ice queen (or go camping uptown anytime soon), but Val’s perfectly matte, nude lips were inspiring.
