Tory Burch Spring '09 Face Chart

Amazingly, smoky eyes are in for Spring, but I must say, I absolutely love this lip color that Bobbi Brown did for Tory Burch’s show this past Tuesday at New York Fashion Week.

“Tory Burch and I have worked together many times during Fashion Week, and I always enjoy designing the makeup for her show. This season, she created a look that was inspired by architecture: It was modern, structural, and chic. To reflect this in the makeup, I created a fresh, nude face with a textured, multi-dimensional smoky eye. For a beautiful base, I applied concealer underneath the eyes followed by foundation to even out the skin tone. A dusting of Illuminating Bronzer made the cheeks pop, and the lips were kept natural with a pale mauve lip color. I enhanced the models’ eyes by layering textures—the mixture of metallic, matte, and cream shadows created dimension.” — Bobbi Brown
