Recreate Rodarte’s Blue Print


Blue is one of the key colour trends for spring/summer 2011 as seen on the catwalks of all major designers and we all love a summery floral print. Designer sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy for Rodarte combined both this season’s blue hue with fresh garden florals to create The Blue Print.

How to re-create the look

For the perfect complexion use NYC’s skin matching foundation & set with powder.
Apply NYC’s Mineral Bronzer Sun- Sational Deep Sun Tan high on the cheekbones towards the temples, down the nose and across the forehead for that sun kissed glow.
Using NYC’s Mineral Eye Colour Wheel apply the gold colour all over the lid and blend to just above the socket line, then apply the brown colour to the socket line.
Next step take NYC’s Sparkle Eye Dust in Champagne and sweep it over the lid for that golden glow.
Use a flat liner brush to then apply NYC’s City Mono Eye Shadow in Bazaar to line the top lash making sure you go as close to the roots as possible.
Use NYC’s Eye Sparkle Dust to line the bottom lash line. This will define the eyes.
Apply two coats of NYC’s Volumizing Mascara Show Time in Black to the top and bottom lashes.
Finish the look off with NYC’s Ultra last lip wear in Mauve Gold to the lips. Lastly apply NYC’s Lippin Large Plumping Lip Gloss in Very Clear and you’re ready to go.
