Thinking of warm weather during this cold spell?  It can make one  feel warmer!   Janell Geason of Aveda always comes up with interesting usually very wearable makeup ideas during New York Fashion Weeks. Here is her summer sunset ombré eye with pinks and oranges on the brown bone, inspired by the colors in Leann Marshall’s Spring 2018 Show (stay tuned.) Colors used were Aveda’s Petal Essence Lip Liners Dragon Fruit and Barberry Bloom, fading to a yellow pigment (not Aveda.)

Repost.  Brrr. It’s cold outside.  This fab fur hood was one of many great fashions for harsh, winter weather shown at the Nicholas K Fall/Winter 2014 New York Fashion Week Show.  It’s a winner, as were more fashions at this show, by the siblings, Nicholas and Christopher Kunz.

All the hair, um, wigs, were by Jon Reyman for Aveda and had a strong asymmetric geometric look with a hair fringe going up over one eyebrow. More from this great show, click:

Phrases like Perfectly Imperfect were incorporated into the fashions and made their way to the eyes at the Concept Korea New York Fashion Week Show For Spring 2018 designed by Chung Chung Lee for Lie.  Stickers with the phrases were added below the eyebrows, lead makeup artist Aveda’s Janell Geason. Only the bottom lip was in a neon color. The hair by Jon Reyman was natural and the fashions casual. Stay tuned for more from this show, with designs by Concept Korea’s Greedilous.

Dreamy '20s-Inspired Geisha Bride – 2011

I have always loved the feeling of this dreamy ’20s-inspired Geisha Bride from the Elisa Palomino New York Fashion Week Show in 2011. Yes, the hair by Jon Reyman for Aveda is somewhat big, and exaggerated, as is the large squashy flower with feathers, but the fashions, the model, the photograph, the bride are all fabulous divine wonderful, don’t you think?
