The look at Joy Cioci for Fall 2012 was sophisticated, tailored and elegant.  Backstage, the beauty look was in perfect harmony.  This was one of the prettiest and my favorite, overall beauty look that I covered at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.  Here are the details…

Makeup was by NARS featuring Uzo, NARS International Lead Makeup Stylist, who explained “I wanted the makeup to mirror the vibe: sophisticated smoky taupe-y -grey eyes with playful hints of sparkly nude-pink on the cheeks and lips.”

Uzo used the following NARS products to get the smoky eye look:

  • Corfu Single Eyeshadow
  • Portobello, Key Largo and Cordura Duo Eyeshadows
  • Madison Avenue Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner

New NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer was applied to skin and topped with the “Undress Me” Multiple, which will be out in Fall. It’s a pinky-beige shade with silver flecks of glitter; so pretty.  Lips were finished in Belle de Jour Sheer Lipstick, Madere Pure Matte Lipstick and Turkish Delight Lip Gloss.

Hair was by the Marie Robinson salon led by Tommy Buckett. He created a a side braid, going around to the front.  This is a look which encourages texture and still has an organic finish, while still looking “done”.


The amazing femme-fatale nail look was created by CND.  Each almond-shaped nail was done by hand, using two coats of Putty for a semi-sheer finish.  Then, pieces of lace fishnet were cut and hand applied to the tip; a smile line was created using CND Blackjack. Incredible!

Would this be a makeup or nail look that you would try out?  Let me know in the comments!
