Runway Makeup and Hair Trends


You might not have a personal make-up artist at your disposal, but these great beauty tips taken straight from Miami Fashion Week will certainly add a little glamour to your everyday look. Trendsetter Mandabear’s expertise extends beyond the runway as her blog contains an amalgamation of her of shopping adventures and some awesome beauty product reviews.

Swimsuits aplenty were recently strutted down the catwalk at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2011 in Miami.  As part of the usual Fashion Week woes, we sadly cannot get our hands on the threads right away.  No worries beach bunnies. It’s still possible to get on top of the trends with the magic of hair and makeup.

Here are two looks that will have you covered both day and night from two sizzling fashion shows at Miami Fashion Week: Qiss Qiss and Dolores Cortes. The beauty looks were created by MAKE UP FOR EVER, the official makeup sponsor for Mercedes-Benz Swim!  If you want to recreate the looks to a T, you’re in luck!  All of the products used are readily available for purchase.

[Budget Friendly Tip: The official color descriptions are noted after each product so you can achieve the look with similar products that you may already own.]
