NYFW: Backstage at Nicholas K S/S 2014 and NYX Cosmetics

MIT_3976.450x675Nicholas K started off fashion week with a display of garments that had elements of delicate draping and utilitarian strength. This mix of sensual techniques balanced by rugged accents were said to be inspired by the Apache reservation the designers spent time at during their childhood. The entire look transported the crowd to another place, where the planes are endless and the sun beams are intense. Nicholas K Makeup Spring 14With a beauty look created by celebrity makeup artist Daniel Martin for NYX Cosmetics you got the message this was a collection for those intending on having adventures. Cheeks kissed with a tan that extended across the eyelids made such an unexpected although fitting contrast that the only other thing that was needed to frame this look were a few wild fishtail braids and a couple of fanciful feathers.
