Effortless Beauty at Susan Woo’s Fall 2010 Fashion Week Presentation

This weekend tarte had the pleasure of kicking off Fashion Week at the Bryant Park Hotel with eco-chic designer Susan Woo! Despite all the chaos backstage, I was able to interview Susan (we’ll be posting the video on YouTube this week) and hear about her Medieval armor inspiration for the Fall 2010 collection. The one thing she consistently mentioned was that this modern-day woman is an effortless beauty. Collaborating with the tarte team, natural makeup artist Tina Turnbow complimented the wearable organic wools & cottons with a natural look for the presentation. The makeup was all about dewy, luminous skin with slightly flushed cheeks and berry stain on the lips. With glowing skin and tousled tresses by Bumble & Bumble, it’s definitely a look that’s easy to recreate and great to rock both day & night. Oh, also spotted looking flawless at the presentation was The Hills’ Olivia Palermo. Love her.

Vintage Rose

When it comes to fashion, fall would definitely be my favorite season. I love the brisk weather, autumn leaves & the Manhattan fashionistas walking the streets in the latest collections. Typically, I reach for rich jewel tones, rustic browns and chunky/nubby knits. However, this year I’ve found myself drawn to a color you cannot find in my closet: pink! I’ve never been a huge fan of the shade, but all of a sudden I love dusty rose with peach undertones. I can’t get enough of the romantic and vintage feel from the look seen above from Chloés fall 2009 collection. Even more enticing is the added edge from Vuitton (ditch the bunny ears!) I pulled ideas from both looks for an everyday look that is very much me—ultragirly waves, ruffles, sleek black ankle pants and natural hair & makeup. This entire look is from J.Crew (a minor retail addiction of mine). I even blogged about the black pixie pant a year ago-they’re still one of my staples!

So here’s how you’d get this look! For easy waves, use a 1” Hot Tools curling iron and roll hair backward away from the face. For amazing clean & natural makeup I use rest assured brightening wand (apply to brow bone & inner well of the eye) and three carats limited-edition cheek stain in shade brilliant as eyeshadow (it’s perfect)! I hope you enjoy this look as much as I do!
