Donna Karan’s 60’s High-Bun & Pink-Pout
Posted Jun 21, 2011
With pale-pink pouts and perfect high-buns, Donna Karan’s Fall 2011 Runway-Models were the epitome of fresh-faced. She really took a chance messing with 2 trends that can be hard to pull-off. Baby-pink can often come across as “Pepto” or “Bubblegum”, both not ideal colors for the average girl. And then there’s the high-bun, too severe and you’ll look like a stern teacher, too literal and you’ll look like a wannabe ballerina. But somehow this combo strikes the right balance.
What makes this version more modern is the addition of a soft eye-gloss, in a taupey bronze, swiped across the lid and nudging up to the crease. Only add 1 pass of Mascara so it will appear as you are wearing none, and finish with a brush of powder/bronzer. The Lips are meant to be the star – this pale-pink will pop against the brown eye, giving a hint of 60’s chic. Then pull make sure the bun isn’t sitting on-top of your head, set it toward the back and you’ll look “Haute off the Runway.”
