On the beauty beat on Saturday at New York Fashion Week, things started out quietly enough, with sleek, minimalist hair looks at both Cynthia Rowley and Prabal Gurung. But the capper of the day involved amazing feats of makeup artist wizardry by Maybelline makeup artist Charlotte Willer, who crafted three different looks – each more colourfully brilliant than the next – for the Z Spoke by Zac Posen show. The inspiration came directly from theatre and the streets, said Willer, who ensured no feature was left behind with bold, graphic cat eyes, colour-saturated lips in red, fuchsia and orange and fully flushed cheeks. The third and final look, a holographic eye in peacock-worthy shades of teal, yellow and green, caused one photographer to gasp, “That’s phenomenal!” No small feat.
