Hey guys, I’d love to welcome the lovely Carly to the blog today! Y’all have to check her blog out, so much awesome stuff from fashion week including sneak peeks from backstage like she is sharing with us today!
Hi Everyone, it’s great to be guest posting on Ciera’s beautiful blog. I studied fashion design and worked in New York City in the fashion industry for a few years. About six months ago, I decided to combine my passions of photography and the artistic elements I love about fashion into the blog Carlytati.com.
Working in the industry has taken me around the world to many interesting places working with very talented and dedicated people and my friends and family in other fields were constantly wondering what my job was like. What did I see? What was I doing during all those trips to places like India to Italy. The blog is a journey in photos of things I find interesting or beautiful to share with you some of the things related to fashion from behind the scenes. I can’t resist to have some food and travel on there too, that’s just part of the journey! Thanks for reading~~
Backstage at the Herve Leger New York Fashion Week show was full of energy and excitement for the collection. It was a huge backstage area for hair, makeup and dressing, and yet it was packed with people eager for a first look from all around the world. The press was clicking away with their cameras, capturing the beauty preparations. The celebrities were talking with Lubov and Max Azria about their inspirations for the season and getting a sneak peek before the looks hit the runway.
The models were being made up into the vision of the strong and confident women of the Herve Leger presentation for Spring 2014. Drawing on their signature body conscious silhouettes, the twist was in the pops of prints inspired by polynesian body art. Other details included fringes that moved as the models walked.
The makeup look was created by Val Garland of team Sephora and was inspired by a beach goddess, all bronzed and glowy. So what were the products used to achieve those subtly smoldery eyes?
1. Apply a bronzer in the socket line to create a natural looking shadow.
2. Apply Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con Plush Shadow in colors The Glam and The Lolita.
3. Sephora’s Waterproof Smoky Cream Liner in Must Have
4. Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon in Blacquer
5. Buxom mascara on the lashes
As the models lined up to take the catwalk, I left backstage just in time to watch the show! So there you have it, a snapshot from backstage. I’m looking forward to trying the smoky eye look at home. Do you think you will try it?
