NYFW S/S '10: MoroccanOil & MAC @ Baby Phat

MoroccanOil & MAC @ Baby Phat
Every season, Kimora Lee Simmons, aka "Miss Fabulousity," serves up spellbinding fashions. And for Baby Phat Spring 2010, Simmons unveiled "Moroccan Kiss," a seductive collection of dresses, tunics, minis, and rompers in rich shades of purple, gold and turquoise. Inspired by model-actress Marisa Berenson, circa 1972, James Kaliardos perfected a Moroccan eye by layering on shades of midnight blue, black and lavender. "It's sexy, beautiful and exaggerated because its Baby Phat," he said. "Its nice to use all those colors on the face and see how it all comes together."

Hairstylist Odile Gilbert used dark extensions to create sexy and bouncy locks to look "expensive like Beyoncé and Mariah Carey." A thick, French braid crowned the models' manes for added texture.CND developed false gold nails from a high shine foil for the "traditional Baby Phat manicure" to round out the earthy tones in the designs. And toes were painted in a sheer bronze lacquer.


For that summer holiday look, apply Face and Body Foundation for full coverage and powder on BlushCreme high up on cheek to create a pink, bronzy tone. For the eyes, apply a base coat of Eye Shadow in a purple shade before layering on bluish-black. Draw a distinct line in the crease of lid using Eye Kohl in Smolder and top with a shimmering gold highlight. Apply false lashes for thickness and coat with Pro Lash in Black. And to finish, smooth lips with Tinted Lipglass in Lychee Luxe for a sparkly, orange pout.

To recreate Gilbert's sexy hairstyle, place a braid at the front of hairline and work in Intense Curl Cream and Luminous Hair Spray. Use a curling iron to make loose waves and set with hair spray. Want 24k nails? Paint digits with Gold Chrome or Copper Chrome.
