Fall ’13 NY Fashion Week: Backstage Beauty at the Zero+Maria Cornejo Show

For Chilean fashion designer Maria Cornejo, the upcoming Fall season is all about flying high and taking chances. That’s why it was easy for Felix Baumgartner, the Australian daredevil who made a free-falling leap 24 miles above earth, to inspire the collection. However, backstage we discovered simplistic looks that were in touch with the clothing line. - Carla Thomas

Makeup artist Romy Soleimani started with Joanna Vargas’ skin care line to prep the models’ skin and then used Kevyn Aucoin’s products to create the look. To complement Zero+Maria Cornejo’s line, Soleimani used Kevyn Aucoin’s eyeshadow in 206 to line the eyes halfway on the top lid to a blunt finish. Unlike other ‘winged’ eyes, the line does not come to a point; it is geometric and modern. Soleimani created a fresh, clean face and a natural flush on the apples of the cheeks using a mixture of The Kevyn Aucoin Creamy Glow in Patrice and  Mystere to recreate a natural winter, flushed look. The lips remained nude and the eyes were finished with an eye gloss.
