Don’t miss this » Camel lids + sculpted skin at Joy Cioci (A/W12)

It’s not all that often that I do a runway-inspired makeup look that I really love, but this one’s a bit of an exception to the rule. Based on the makeup created by the NARS camp for the Joy Cioci AW12 presentation, here’s a look with camel brown lids, soft black liner, and super-sculpted cheeks. 

Paired with semi-sheer nude lips and really well-defined (but not overfilled or overdrawn) brows, the NARS + Joy Cioci look is incredibly easy to wear — polished, but not too done-up.

It goes with any hairstyle, really, but I liked the casual, slightly messy hair at Joy Cioci. (Try letting your hair air-dry for this, and add soft curls or a thick partial French braid on one side of your hair to keep it out of the way.)

    I think this is a very intriguing makeup look. It is quite appropriate for the fall, and I very sophisticated, too.

    • Thanks, Kelly! :) I've had the eyeshadow for years, but this is the first time I've actually used it — I didn't think camel would look good on anyone, much less myself, but I'm glad I was wrong!!

    I think your interpretation trumps the runway look! My favorite favorite neutral eyeshadow on asian skin tones is Outre by Mac. You wouldn't think that at first, it being so mustard-y, but it is amazing on the lid or for blending out a smokey eye

    • Thank you, Andrew! :) I'll have to give Outre a try — it sounds gorgeous.

  • *drools* If I weren't married, I swear…. oh, and if I were a guy, I SWEAR…. even your soul mate won't be able to keep you! Watch it Wands. LOL!
