The beauty backstage: Rag & Bone

The key pieces from Rag & Bone’s F/W 2012 runway collection at New York fashion week took a cultured trip to the east, and its beauty department didn’t lag behind.

On first glance, you notice nothing but the deep and textured eyes. The subtle smokiness in the eye socket counteracts with the highlighted and contoured cheekbones. Akin to the clothes, the inspiration for the look comes from the textures and colours of India, according to Revlon’s Global Artistic Director, Gucci Westman.

To recreate this look at home, Westman suggests playing with different coloured eyeliners and focusing on the waterline. Don’t be afraid to wear green eyeliner with a burgundy coat or navy blue liner with a copper knit. For this particular runway look, Westman used a combination of Revlon’s gel liner, a liquid liner and a cream-based eye shadow to create rough and bold eyes.

Contoured cheeks are also a huge trend this fall, and Westman has merged it with a highlighter and cream blush for Rag & Bone. Keep the eyebrows rustic and lips nude and matte to adhere to the collection’s exotic appeal.
