Face Charts

This past week, it was Fashion Week and, as you may know, many fashion designers and makeup artists come together and collaborate to bring a unique touch to the models modeling on the catwalk for this event. To honor fashion week, here are some of the face charts to give you readers ideas on the latest and greatest makeup colors, applications, and combinations for the spring 2010. Yes, that's right...SPRING. Why now when it's only fall 2009? Because all my readers are on top of their game ;). All these charts are specifically geared to be used with Bobbi Brown makeup, which can be found at Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, etc. However, to replicate these looks, you can just eye-ball some colors and use cheaper versions like from NYX, Almay, Loreal HIP, etc. Please do not distribute these images.

















Spring at J. Mendel is about ethereal silhouettes and soft textures, so the makeup reflected this inspiration through clean, matte skin, light pink cheeks and lips, and an elongated smoky eye that is pretty, yet powerful.

This spring, the makeup at Brian Reyes was all about fair skin with a hint of color. Winter white skin was clean and crisp, highlighted with frosty cheeks. Stained red lips added a touch of color, but remained soft enough for the spring season.

Complementing the colors and textures of Rachel Roy’s spring collection, the makeup featured a beautiful and precise eye channeling the 70s, but modernized for today’s woman.

Tibi’s spring collection is simplistic in structure, allowing the signature bright prints and colorful palette to make this season’s statement. The makeup for the show was bold, yet pretty, featuring a vibrant electric pink eye with hints of yellow and green, juxtaposed with a nude lip.

Cheeks: Coral Pot Rouge (Spring ’10, $22), placed high on cheek bone
