Fall ’13 NY Fashion Week: Backstage at Trina Turk


Trina Turk stilla makeupAs for the makeup, Lucero mixed Kitten, Stila’s all-over shimmer liquid, with Elizabeth Arden’s 8-hour cream to get a vinyl shine on the cheeks.

“Then I took a little bit of the bronzer like a caramel color, so it’s very monochromatic and harmonious,” she continued “[The look] is very flattering on all these girls. And I love the mix of polished-perfect skin with a high-gloss cheekbone in that neutral-wheat tone with platinum shine.”

To finish the look, Lucero used mascara just on the top lashline.

When asked about how to perfect this look for various complexions Lucero notes, “The key to perfecting this look is really to spend an extra minute perfecting your complexion. Even out redness, discoloration and blotchiness. If you’re going to pop in nudes or caramel tone colors on the face, they cannot compete with redness or blotchy skin because otherwise it doesn’t look fresh.”
