Bronzed Inspiration from NYX Cosmetics backstage at Nichols K S/S '14

The backstage beauty look for Nicholas K was minimal but sculpted. Celebrity makeup artist Daniel Martin wanted to convey chic, nomadic, tribal makeup. “Sibling design team Nicholas Kunz and Christopher Kunz presented muted, earth-toned looks in light and airy shapes with white as a prominent color throughout. To compliment this collection, Lead Makeup Artist Daniel Martin for NYX Cosmetics drew inspiration from the hip, downtown “NYX woman” and Nicholas K’s Native-American influences, creating a makeup look that evoked a “Modern Tribal Warrior.”

The look involved a heavy emphasis on a bronzed face utilizing NYX  Cosmetics’ Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation mixed with Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator-Gleam, as well as some Mineral Finishing Powder only in the T-Zone.  NYX Cosmetics eyeshadows in Dance the Tides, Skinny Dip, and Hot Orange where mixed together to create a look mimicking a sunburn (different right?), the sculpted look was extended to the cheeks using NYX Matte Bronzer. On  the lips, just balm! Overall, this is a beautifully simplified look with minimal product.

What do you think of this look?
