“Darling, I love you, but give me Park Avenue ...” goes the old song. The luxury and glamour of Manhattan never fades, with a new generation of socialites joining the elite ranks. And no one channels that mood better than Ralph Lauren, whose fall 2014 collection is full of posh lovelies enveloped in luxury cashmere, fur and regal shades of mauve and ivory.
The Park Avenue look is one of classic elegance — defined lips, contoured cheeks, and polished updos. The society girls of today look done but never overdone. The first step is glowing, satiny foundation. Eyes are decorated with a diffused shade of smoky brown shadow — winged-out slightly and softly accentuated with light mascara and liner. Strong, arched brows add structure and express confidence. Contoured blush creates sculpted cheekbones that evoke Faye Dunaway’s aloof elegance. Blow a kiss from the penthouse window with a Cupid’s bow lip shape in creamy cold red. Simply divine! Get the Look: MDC Tells You How! Channel your inner upper east side gal and look like you’re ready to stroll down Central Park with this super chic beauty tutorial. With bold lips and just a touch of shadow, this look will have you ready for any wine-swirling, elegant affair — while subtle enough to wear during the day or at the office. In order to show you how to land this class act, we’ve enlisted the help of our makeup pro Diana Shin.
