Coco Rocha wows with slicked back hair and bold make up at NYFW

Coco Rocha looked ah-mazing at the BCBGMAXAZARIA runway show in New York last night. The Canadian model complimented her high-neck black BCBG dress with a dark and glamorous make up look. She also worked an on-trend slick-back hairstyle, as seen at the Alexander Wang and Balmain SS15 shows. Her porcelain skin was fresh and dewy, with the focus being on her smoky eyes and dark purple lip.


To recreate this look yourself you need to start with flawless skin. Apply a layer of Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, £32 over your skin, then dust your forehead and above your cheekbones with a highlighter such as Autograph Pure Luxe Multi-Highlighter, £12.50 for a fresh and healthy glow.


To create the smoky eye, begin by applying a bronze shadow over your lids, we like Rimmel Scandeleyes Shadow Stick by Kate in Rose Gold, £4.49. Using a thick, black liquid liner, such as L’Oréal Paris Super Line Blackbuster Intense, £6.99, draw a strong line above your upper lashes and create a flick in the direction of the top of your ears. Finish with some Eylure Lengthening Lashes, £5.39 and dot a little pearly white shadow in the inner corners of your eyes.


We’ve found the perfect lipstick to match Coco’s vampy dark shade. MAC’s Heroine Bright Purple Lipstick, £15.50 packs a strong colour punch that stays on for hours. Use a lip brush to carefully apply the colour, then dot the pearly white shadow, try Bourjois’ Little Round Pot in Blanc Diaphane, £6.99 on your cupid’s bow to make the colour really pop!


Good news is that the slicked back hairstyle is super easy to create. Whilst your hair is still damp, simply comb your hair back with a deep side parting and spray it with lots of hair spray. Add a clip or two behind your ears to hold it place and you’re done!
