It was masculine meets feminine backstage at Nicole Miller’s fall show.


James Kaliardos, for MAC Cosmetics, said he was inspired by Jerry Hall in the early Seventies, “when she was wearing three-piece suits. It’s still drop dead gorgeous but there intensity in the eye area,” he said. “It’s like she’s saying, ‘don’t f--k with me.’” Kaliardos used BB Cream as foundation and Barefaced Blush on the contour and the apples of cheeks. He then hollowed out eyes with Fashion Fix Prolongwear Eyeshadow and created the same shape but smaller with Scarab green MAC Pro Eyeshadow. “It’s a light lid and heavy in the crease,” said Kaliardos, who used paint pot “camel coat” in the center of the eyelid, curled top lashes and applied one coat of Haute & Naughty Too Black Lash on the top. Brushes were groomed, brushed upwards with Clear Brow Set. Oyster ProCream Shadow was used on cheekbones and the inner corner of the eyes for highlight. Lips were softened with lip conditioner and given a coating of a “mauve nude” lipstick. “It’s a play on masculine and feminine,” he said. When asked about beauty trends for fall, Kaliardos said he was hoping for brightness. “I love color on the eye or a bright lip,” he said, naming hot pink, orange and orange-red as colors to watch for.
