As the NYFW madness continues in New York, I have been working OT trying to gather inspiration from all the brilliant runway looks ! We did a lot of hair posts on AIMB covering several runway hairstyles with detailed instructions on how to do get the look in real life. You can check them all out here.

In the Trend It Series, I will be writing about several trends that were featured this year on the NYFW SS2010 ramps that could be done everyday to add some spunk to our monotonous make up routines.

The first in the series is from the Yigal Azrouƫ Show.

At the Yigal Azrouƫ Show, the models sported a clean face with messy black shadow on their eyes. Makeup for this show was by Bobbi Brown. Check out the model pictures and the face chart from the show below. The only color apart from a natural clean foundation is on the eyes.

The messy trend is here to stay. Its easy, there are no rules, edgy without being overly dramatic. I cant wait to bring out my boring gray sweaters and pair them with this messy, rebellious look. Though black will be most gorgeous, I plan on doing this with a bunch of dark shades like dark green, deep blue and purple. They all will look equally edgy.

Skin: Hydrating Face Cream ($50), Hydrating Eye Cream ($45), Foundation Stick ($40), Creamy Concealer ($22), Corrector ($22)

Eyes: Charcoal Eye Shadow ($20) smudged out and applied to lower lash line; Extreme Party Mascara ($22) applied to top and bottom lashes

Cheeks: Natural

Lips: Touch of Lip Balm SPF 15 ($17)

Brows: Clear Natural Brow Shaper ($19)

Step By Step Tutorial

1. Apply concealer all over the lids and do the brows
2. Using your ring finger dab the shadow on the lid. Stop just below the crease. Avoid inner corner. The most concentrated part of the color is just above the lashes. Fade it out using your finger o a brush as it moves towards the crease.
I used Bobbi Brown Metallic Eyeshadow - bash.
3. Using a thin angled eyeliner brush, line the lower lash line fading the color towards the inner corner.
4. Curl your lashes. Apply mascara.

Now that we've decoded the style, tell me what you think about it !

I recently bought Bash and think its the most gorgeous shade of green. I will have to give your tutorial a go now since I dont have any blending skills.

This is about the only way I know how to do eye shadow/color, so "washing" is the norm for me :)

Don't mind, but frankly your eye-shadow doesn't look very "messy or edgy" as compared to the models.. maybe it is your choice of color (green as opposed to the darker, edgier colors the models are sporting).. In comparision, your eyes look, err, rather neat.

But yr step by step tutorial is rather nice & if used with a matt, non-glittery eye-shadow will deliver. :D

Hi Suman !

Really, so easy ! No painful blending or even washing brushes. Just clean fingers and some color !

Hi Tanveer

LOL @ " Dont mind, but frankly"
Well that's the best part about makeup. Each one has their own interpretation of runway to real life !
