Makeup Breakdown: New York Fashion Week, Fall 2009: Diane von Furstenberg


The makeup on the Diane von Furstenberg Fall 09 runway was all about nomadic chic.  The inspiration behind the look were Sudanese women.  James Kaliardos, MAC makeup artist, created the look using natural, monochromatic tones.  


  • MAC Eye Shadow in Soba – blended over lids, up past crease, out towards temples, and along lower lash line
  • MAC  Cream Colour Base in Pearl  – highlight the inner corner of the eyes
  • MAC Pro Barelash – applied with a mascara wand combed through brows to diminish natural color


  • MAC Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation – applied as a minimal base to the face
  • MAC Pro Sculpting Powder – blended under cheek bones and up towards temples to contour
  • MAC Cream Colour Base in Pearl – touched on the high plane of the cheek bone to highlight
