Neon Lips, Big Lashes, and Badass Nails at Betsey Johnson Spring 2012

Last night’s Betsey Johnson show was bold, fun, and full of color — everything we’d expect from the queen of punk pop. Our favorite makeup artist, Stila’s Sarah Lucero, created a look that really popped with color and sass. Lucero said they wanted to the models feel “voluptuous and va va voom.” The lips stood out with a combination Stila Long Wear Liquid Lip Color in Petal layered under Stila Lip Enamel in Giggle, a truly shocking hot pink. For even more oomph, the models’ eyes were given the cat eye treatment on top with Stila Black Smudge Pot and Stay All Day Liner. The addition of a silvery liner along the bottom lashline and false lashes made their eyes look huge.

Meanwhile, Nonie Creme from butter LONDON was applying nails that would fit right in at a New York Dolls concert. Each model’s nails were painted black and covered with a metallic, almond shaped false nail to create what Creme called a reverse moon mani. The false nails (a huge timesaver backstage), were painted with Diamond Geezer and given a single diamante gem in the center. As if that weren’t cool enough, small black safety pins were sporadically poked through the false nails.
