Day 2 of Vancouver Fashion Week, I was covering the event on behalf of London Drugs Cosmetics, catching the shows, and spending some time backstage to see as much inspiration as possible! I chatted with VFW Beauty Director Yasmin Morshedian to find out what looks she had been creating all day, and what we can expect to see for Spring/Summer 2015. Graphic liners and smokey eyes are set to be big trends, not just for fall/winter anymore, according to Yasmin! On the other hand, pastel lids will also be a key trend, and are easy to re-create with COVERGIRL Bombshell Shine Shadows. As always, if eyes are the focus, lips should be muted, in shades of nude.
It's always hard to keep in the zone while seeing all these Spring/Summer collections on the runway when in reality we're in the heart of fall now. I decided on deep, deep colours for my outfit and makeup, but thought it would be fun to use a touch of pastel to contradict all the darkness. My amazing pastel statement necklace is from Olive + Piper, while my smouldering makeup was actually the COVERGIRL beauty look created for the runway of Nina Tan's collection last season (follow the link for a tutorial on the berry smokey eye)!
