Hautelanta Fashion Week: Makeup Trends!

Hello Divas!

I hope your weekend was fabulous! I had an extremely busy weekend. I attended Hautelanta Fashion Week, cared for a teething baby girl, and worked. Whew! But lets get back to beauty! Here are a few makeup trends that Atlantans believe are hot for spring 09!

1. Smokey eyes using vibrant colors. I was granted backstage access during Hautelanta Fashion Week and I was able to capture up close the beautiful make-up for the shows. The MAC lead make up artist, Nicole Corbette, stated that the Glamourous decade of the 80s was her inspiration in creating the looks for the Maria Harper and Essence shows. Specifically 80s meet Hollywood. How fabulous! She created this look with smokey eyes using browns, blues, grays, and purples with a cute peach or nude lip. Check out the photos.

2. Peach lips, cheeks, and soft smokey eyes. I loove this look! So fresh and pretty. This look definitely puts me in the mood for spring! This look was used in the Vivian Compton show!

I have LOTS more from Hautelanta Fashion Week! So stay tuned…
