Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week BCBG Max Azria

BCBG Max Azria is always a fan favorite and the designer's look always mirrors what I want to be wearing for the current season (or maybe it's the other way around).

This year Azria showed off a collection that had modern, clean lines with plenty of asymmetrical looks for the Fall. The clothes were flowy with distinct color blocking, beautiful draping and ultra casual crew necks and dresses in dark navy, creams and grays. Unfortunately, there was only a smattering of sequins and sparkles towards the end of the show but enough to remind you that you were at a BCBG show. Some bling is certainly necessary to please the throngs of twenty-something females (like me) that clamor to get a hold of our perennial favorite label. Nothing beats a BCBG sweater with gorgeous sparkles sown into the fabric or placed ever so carefully along the neckline or sleeve. We all have something that shines from his collection, right!?

The Look:
Hair was pulled in a tight bun that fanned out in the back. The fresh-faced, low key makeup (a trend I saw everywhere on the runways) was done by makeup artist Sarah Lucero for Stila. Healthy-looking skin is majorly in this year and once again neutral lips and emphasized eyes helped bring together the BCBG collection.

Lucero used a few easy-to-find Stila staples. She applied eye shadow in Chinois (a pinkie-white shadow) all over the lid as a base. She then applied eye shadow in Puppy (a brown taupe) in the crease and underneath the lower lash line in an upperward motion to create a reverse cat eye. She then brushed on Stila Major Lash Mascara in Black to create a defined lash line and slightly darkened the brows. To create a healthy dewy face, Lucero used Stila One Step Makeup on their skin and under emphasized the lip by painting on Stila Long Wear Lip Color in In The Nude. Voila!
