Ruffian - Fashion Week Backstage

Ruffian Designers Claude Morais and Brian Wolk
probably one of the most crowded shows yet, the Ruffian backstage was buzzing with photographers, videographers, makeup/hair/nail artists and more. the immense popularity of Ruffian could be due to their collaboration with MAC Cosmetics for the Ruffian makeup line. recently released, the Ruffian makeup line was a formal introduction of Ruffian designers Claude Morais and Brian Wolk to the public. key features include the signature Ruffian Red and Nude lip colors as well as elaborate press-on nail design.

John Kaliardos lead MAC makeup artist
 smoking the eyes out in grey and using MAC Fluidline to draw in the brow, lead artist for MAC John Kaliardos kept the face fresh.
Signature Ruffian Nude Lip
my favorite feature of the makeup is the introduction of new nail colors. inspired by 18th century vehicles the colors attempt to capture opulence. i was certainly captured by the filigree nail accessories. gorgeous, right?
