NYFW Badgley Mischka, Coach & Michael Costello

The makeup at Badgley Mischka was inspired by chic and carefree beauty – a girl on a coastal holiday in Capri. Coach’s beauty looks were completed with “beyond nude” semi-matte manicures that focused on the health and natural beauty of the nails. Michael Costello’s show illustrated a modern secret garden inclusive of all races, bodies and sexual orientation, brought to life with ethereal, angel-like makeup.

“The inspiration for this look comes from a girl on a coastal holiday in Capri, Italy that represents the chic and carefree Italian beauty.” said Gucci Westman, lead makeup artist for Badgley Mischka on behalf of INGLOT Cosmetics.

Skin: “The INGLOT AMC Cream Foundation was used as the base to create beautiful, even skin. The INGLOT AMC Liquid Illuminator #70 was used on the high planes of the face including the cheekbone, brow bone and tear duct to highlight the face.”  

Cheeks: “On the cheeks bones I applied INGLOT Freedom System Blush in #124 to add a subtle color and highlight to the face.”

Eyes: “To create a rusty transparent eye, I used the INGLOT AMC Liquid Illuminator #70 as a primer and base for INGLOT Freedom System Eye Shadow where I mixed shades #449, #607, #609 and #614. Then eyebrows were filled in with INGLOT’s Eyebrow Pencil and to complete the eyes, I used INGLOT Lash Enhancing Mascara to the top lashes only.”

Lips: “To finish the look, I mixed 3 different shades of INGLOT Matte Lipstick in #229, #408, and #438 to create a matte metallic red lip.”

INGLOT Creates “Beyond Nude” Semi-Matte Manicures for Coach 
Spring/Summer 2018

At the Coach Spring/Summer ‘18 runway show, the theme for nails is one step beyond nude – Raw, simple yet manicured and naturally beautiful. Lead nail artist Naomi Yasuda created simple, semi-matte chic nails using INGLOT products, with an emphasis on unique treatments that fuse polish and care. The focus was on the health of the nail, showcasing its raw, natural beauty while using a unique ridge-filling treatment to create an even surface. To create the look, Yasuda used the below products step-by-step:

Inspiration: “This is especially great for models during busy show seasons,” said Yasuda. “The treatment will strengthen the nails for their next show, too.”

  • To start off the manicure, Naomi used INGLOT pH Cuticle Remover. “This is my favorite and one of the best! It softens hard cuticles and exfoliates loose skin on the nails. We then gently push and trim the cuticle to give the nail a nice clean look,” said Yasuda.
  • Nails were then filed and buffed with INGLOT Nail File 180/240 Blue and INGLOT Nail Buffer to create a soft, smooth finish.
  • Lastly, INGLOT Ridge Filler was applied to create a semi-matte finish and make the nail healthier and smoother, filling in any damage or misshapen surfaces to the nails. The treatment, unique to INGLOT, evens the nail plate and conditions with algae extract.

 INGLOT Debuts Ethereal Beauty Looks for Michael Costello Spring/Summer ’18

“We’re converting the idea that glamour is something reserved for the elite,” said Michaela Polaco, lead makeup artist for INGLOT. “The inspiration comes from our desire to accentuate women’s natural features. We achieved this by creating very supple, fresh and radiant skin, an effortless, wearable yet sexy eye and a lip that looks stained from a glass of wine. The palette is ethereal yet evokes the thought, ‘I could pull that off.’”

Skin: “To create a dreamy effect on the skin, I mixed INGLOT AMC Face & Body Illuminator with INGLOT HD Corrective Primer as a base, so the skin radiates through the makeup look and lasts throughout the night.”

Cheek: “After the base was applied, on the apple of the cheek I applied INGLOT Sparking Dusts #02 & #03 (frosted loose powder in light nude and bronze) to give skin a shimmery look accentuating each woman’s glow.”

Eyes: “I wanted to maintain the ethereal feel on the eyes, so I mixed INGLOT AMC Pure Pigment in #115, a holographic rose gold shade, with INGLOT Duraline – It’s a magic serum that turns powder products into cream or liquid. This created a long lasting, high-shine metallic element that mimics a glossy lid, without the mess.”

Lips: “To finish the look, I applied INGLOT HoldOn Lip Primer, lined the lips with INGLOT Soft Precision Lipliner #56 and finished with INGLOT Sleeks Cream Lip Paint #91, a creamy, rosy long-wear paint with a glossy yet flat texture.”

All INGLOT products used to create this look are available at more than 600 retail locations worldwide and online at INGLOT Cosmetics!

Deborah Lippmann Fall 2015 Roar Collection Preview

Just ahead of its August release, TME gives readers a sneak peak of Deborah Lippmann’s latest offerings. With four brand new nail lacquers, this collection evokes feminine strength and echoes the united voice of women everywhere. Inspired by the rebirth of female empowerment and iconic leaders like Grace Jones and Cher, Deborah specifically designed these shades to represent that power with color. The Deborah Lippmann “Roar” Collection for Fall 2015 is absolutely the high-end and innovative quality that one expects from the brand.

Previewed at the Badgley Mischka A/W 2015 runway show, the hues offer up full coverage shades that are sumptuous for Fall 2015. From the discerning She Wolf and the boardroom dominating Miss Independent, to the brick red that demands Respect and glittery bronze that Can’t Be Tamed, this collection is stunning for Fall and easily transitions into Winter -- of course we’re not ones to allow the season to dictate our paw color …

Deborah Lippmann Fall 2015 Roar Collection Shades:

  • She Wolf – Taupe (Crème)
  • Respect - Brick Red (Crème)
  • Miss Independent – Berry Wine (Crème)
  • Can’t Be Tamed - Holographic Honey Gold (Glitter)

The DL Fall 2015 Collection isn’t limited to just lacquers. With the introduction of Genie In a Bottle ($20), Deborah Lippmann offers the ultimate nail treatment. Genie In a Bottle Illuminating Nail Tone Perfector enhances the color and tone of natural nails, making them look younger and healthier.

Genie In a Bottle is the first product of its kind to use ultra sheer violet pigments, the ideal color match for neutralizing dull, stained or yellow nails, to cancel out discoloration and make them look even-toned with radiant white tips. Finely milled pigments brighten while Mica reflects light for nails that look naturally beautiful. Genie In A Bottle has become Team TME’s favorite nail treatment of the season with its versatility -- Apply as a neutralizing base coat before color, or wear alone for a perfected natural nail look.

As with all other Deborah Lippmann products, Genie In a Bottle is 5-free, contains green tea extract and biotin, and is cruelty-free. Deborah Lippmann’s Fall 2015 Roar Collection will be available August 2015 ($18 each; $20 for Can’t Be Tamed), with Genie In A Bottle available August 2015 exclusively at Sephora until October 2015. You may find Deborah Lippmann products online at Deborah Lippmann and select retail locations such as Barneys New York, Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom.

Beauty Alert! The Best Eye Looks from New York and London Fashion Week

The whirlwind of New York and London Fashion Weeks are officially behind us, which means MAJOR trends are being spotted in beauty. With a little help from the Founder and Creative Director of Eyeko, Nina Leykind, we have fashion's top trending eye looks and tips for bringing them from runway to reality.


London Fashion Week focused on eyes with interesting takes on the typical cat eye. Makeup artist Adam de Cruz was inspired by designer Eudon Choi's circular prints and created a matching cat eye look adorned with black, navy and gray polka dots.

Another twist on the cat eye, seen at Suno and Badgley Mischka at NYFW, was Block Liner. The effect has the same upward flick, but instead of a perfectly precise wing, liner is blocked off at the edges to create a rectangular shape. Use a smudgy gel liner like Eyeko Making Eyes Automatic Gel Eyeliner in Pitch Black to draw a thick line from the inner to the outer corner, bringing it to a square point at the edge.


The trend for “boy brows” was huge during both Fashion Weeks with thick, naturally brushed up brows in shows like Christopher Kane and Orla Kiely in London, and Michael Kors, Donna Karan and 3.1 Phillip Lim in New York. According to Leykind, the key to perfection here is ensuring that any shading or filling is done with subtle feathering. Allow texture to show through by using a shaping and defining gel, like Eyeko Brow Gel for a strong finishing touch.


The "I just went for a walk in the woods" mood inspired designers and makeup artists alike this season. At London shows like TopShop and Jonathan Saunders, smudgy taupe or chocolate eyes (try NEW Eyeko Me and My Shadow shades in Topaz, Quartz and Bronze) were teamed with minimal mascara and dewy skin to create the look of health, reminiscent of a "no-makeup makeup look."

Eyeko products are available online at Eyeko and select retail locations across the globe!

Deborah Lippmann Introduces Spring 2015 Collection

During NYFW S/S 2015, Deborah Lippmann previewed shades from her new Whisper Collection and helped set the top trends for spring. There is a bit of whimsy and serenity with these sheer, light colors that are clean and understated, yet modern and refined. As easy to apply, as they are to wear, all four shades float over the nails with effortless elegance. Explore your softer side for Spring 2015 and see how Deborah nailed down these shades this season …

A New Kind of Nude: “Nude has always been young, fresh, and sophisticated. We are enhancing this classic and pushing the boundaries of our creativity by playing with contour, shape, texture, and finish.” - Deborah Lippmann. Standout shades as seen at Badgley Mischka: Chantilly Lace, Misty Morning, Like Dreamers Do

Mannequin Matte: “To create something unexpected, matte top coats were seen across the runways as a way of adding texture to the nail looks. In combination with paler flesh-tone colors, it can create the illusion of a mannequin like hand.” - Deborah Lippmann.  As seen hot off the runway at Theory and Donna Karan: Like Dreamers Do, A Fine Romance

Whisper Collection ($18 each) available February 2015 online at Deborah Lippmann, and at Barneys New York, Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Sephora stores nationwide.

In tandem with this new collection, Deborah is also introducing two new treatments into her line -- All About That Base CC Base Coat and The Wait Is Over Quick Dry Drops. As with all Deborah Lippmann products, these treatments are 5-free and infused with Biotin and Green Tea to ensure maximum nail care and health.

All About That Base CC Base Coat: This all-in-one CC formula provides 10 nail treatment benefits and immediate nail perfecting coverage. A special hydrating complex with Panthenol helps moisturize, strengthen and protect the look of nails while treatment correctors help conceal imperfections, brighten, prime and fill ridges for a smooth, matte, flawless finish with improved wear.

The Wait Is Over Quick Dry Drops: Conscious to make the nail care experience easier, faster and ultimately more pleasant, these quick-dry drops dramatically accelerate drying time to promote a flawless finish to manicures and pedicures in a New York minute. When applied after topcoat, one drop dries nails completely within 60 seconds.

All About That Base CC Base Coat and The Wait Is Over Quick Dry Drops ($20 each) will be available February 2015 at Sephora stores nationwide and online at Deborah Lippmann.
