Runway to Wedding Day Makeup Inspiration at 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2012

Fashion & Beauty » Fashion & Beauty » Skin Care & Makeup

This just in, more beauty inspiration from New York Fashion Week ruwnays. Today we’re loving this soft, simple and ethereal look created by Francelle for NARS at 3.1 Phillip Lim . The look was all about metallic eyes and pink lips…a perfect wedding makeup combo! Try a dramatic slick of silver shadow on lids and a couple coats of black mascara to add definition. Keep skin glowy with illuminator on the cheeks and just a hint of colour on the lips. Key NARS products used by Francelle included: Paris Duo Eyeshadow, Night Life Single Eyeshadow, The Mulitple in Copacabana Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara and Desire Blush on lips.

Looking for an amazing centrepiece to anchor your reception tables with? How about a gorgeous floral idea? For a chic yet simplistic look try placing your flowers in a vase from Chive–a Toronto-based design shop that houses over a hundred mod floral vessels. “In June alone, we introduced 52 new designs,” says Sarah Digout an employee of Chive. “We love designing, and bringing new ideas to the table. Next year, we plan on expanding into the UK.” Their number one bestseller, among brides and event planners, happens to be their hole-flute design from their Hudson 2 collection (pictured above). We combed their entire site and found plenty more inspiring wedding vases that are equally stunning and elegant as their number one seller. From a sleek creation to a vintage vessel, there’s plenty of gorgeous pieces for brides of all kinds to pick and choose from.
