Revlon is at it again! Global Artistic Director Gucci Westman has been all over New York Fashion Week Spring 2014, including the new Rag & Bone ready-to-wear collection that hit runways this September. To compliment the Rag & Bone Spring/Summer ’14 collection, Westman focused on clean luminous skin and paired it with a subtle eye, strong brow and bold lip. Westman said, “This look focuses on textures with a matte lip and luminous skin, but it’s not about being sweet; she’s still a cool Rag & Bone girl,” says Westman. “This is the first time Rag & Bone has ever done a lip look like this.” Lip: Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Mischievous, $8.99 (NEW for January 14)
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Carnival from the Spring/Summer ’14 Collection by Gucci Westman, $7.99
There’s a lot of shine to the collection, as well as pastels, so Westman really wanted the lip to pop. The lip color was inspired by the World Cub in Brazil and the eye look was inspired by what your eyes might look like the morning after going to bed with makeup on.

To recreate the nail look worn by the models, celebrity manicurist Jin Soon Choi suggests creating a shape that’s slightly rounded and then applies a creamy polish to keep it simple. “We wanted a soft color that would really complement the bold lip,” says Choi. “To guarantee a finished look, you should always use three coats, as it ensures that the polish will look perfectly opaque and smooth.”
Nail: Revlon Nail Enamel in Sheer Sweetie, $7.99 P The catwalk combined bold makeup looks with layers of long and lean silhouettes, and halter-style tops as well as dungarees, which has been a trend in the Fall season and seems to be continuing to the Spring and Summer. Black and white, and the combination of tomboy meets feminine hipster makes me want to change out of my current outfit, add a midriff top and head to chic new restaurant The Elm in Williamsburg. As a matter of fact… bye for now!
