Cibelle x Kristina _ MichaelKorsPerfume_05

In just a couple of weeks we somehow managed to travel from L.A to Paris, to Thailand and finally land in New York for fashion week. For the first time, it became a short NYFW stop as we skipped some of the last shows in order to leave (again) to Milan, where I was just a few days ago, for a new project. Life has been honestly all about airports, passport in hands, luggages, packing/unpacking and trying to coordinate meetings with everyone we want to see. Conversations go like “Will I see you in London? Are you coming to Paris?” as we are all on a crazy gypsy life schedule. But it seems like we don’t mind it, it’s part of the game. 

NYFW was as always a tremendously exciting experience and we got to do a LOT even though we had to leave early. Some amazing shows, shoots and it was so fun to see everyone again and to spend time with some of our closest friends in this amazing fashion week ambiance. One of my favorite events was for the Michael Kors Gold Fragrance collection launch as all of our pals were there for the occasion, cocktails, a Photo Booth and the retro sound of Duran Duran playing to our ears. I’ve had the enormous pleasure to work with Michael Kors for a while now and as always, they manage to throw the best parties where everyone just seems to have the best time ever.

So instead of sharing with you the red carpet pictures like we all usually do and like you can so easily see online, I wanted to share with you some tips and tricks on how to get ready for an event of such sort. First of all know this, flash pictures will always attenuate your make-up. With that in mind don’t hesitate to go a little stronger on the contouring and shading as it will appear much softer on the shots. However, you still don’t want the cake face effect in person, so it’s all about finding that perfect balance. Second of all, make sure to always have with you a bit of mat powder to avoid shine. A bit of nude lip liner goes a long way, trust me. Try it! Try your poses in front of the mirror, even if it sounds (and looks) so dumb it will be of a tremendous help when you’ll have to pose.

Last but not least, don’t forget to wear something that makes you feel beautiful and comfortable for the whole night and a touch of your favorite perfume will make you even more unforgettable. For the occasion I chose the Rose Radiant perfume from the Gold collection by Michael Kors as it was perfectly in the theme. So obsessed with this super feminine scent that has such delicious floral notes. I always apply my perfume right before running out, on my wrists, hair and on certain parts of my clothes. Sometimes, I’ll even create a mini sample of it to bring with me throughout the day. On the other hand, I also decided to match up a look to some rose gold statement pieces. Et voilà!! Can’t wait to hear what you guys think of these few images shot by Cibelle. Make sure to follow my story on Snapchat for all of our adventures (they might be long, yes, but we make sure to hide some fun little winks here and there!). And… yes we tend to go wild ;)

Hey Krisina! Just wanted to say that you’re looking absolutely stunning in these pictures.

I didn’t know that Michael Kors makes such beautiful jewelry, I’m really loving that diamond ring of yours, especially!

I hope you’ve had a lovely NYFW so far. It must take lots of energy to get through the week with all the shows and parties, but I’m sure it’s all worth it.

Love from Helsinki, Finland! xx

First of all my girlfriend would like to thank you for the tips (I am writing on her behalf because she doesn’t speak English). Secondly, your MK outfit is simply perfect, and I am a great fan of Micheal Kors myself! Last but absolutely not the least, Cibelle Levi’s shots are impeccable as always. I totally love her photography! Big hi to all of you great people!

Amazing post, simply amazing! Always love some insider things, especially about FW. And You’re stunning, as alwaya! ^^

Guys, I also have a blog. It’s about fashion and personal style and could really use some love and friendships:) It would mean a world to me if You checked it out or even commented!

Dear Kristina!

Very sleek and chic look. Is it the make-up, the amazing Cibelle photos or you’ve grown in a beautiful strong and charmimg woman over the night? You are so different on the pictures, in a good way, of course ;)

Regards, Kristina J.

Dear Kayture team!

Please do not post this comment online, just making a hint about your webpage here:

1. When scrolling on top row links and down links after whole text between previous and next articles, often some articles are skipped. Test and you’ll notice.
2. Somehow pictures are missing in the articles, only name is shown. Some are in the first years 2011/12 and lately in this article of Michael Kors. Ps. Using Ipad.
3. Statistics in down row of webpage: missing real number of FB and Youtube subscribers/fans.

For now all. If you require and dont’t mind, I can send more minor “bugs” to fix :) working as a webpage/programs tester as well.

I am amazed by all that you accomplish in such a short span of time. I’m also interested in the fashion world and worked at a fashion PR firm in New York this summer. Following you on Snapchat, Instagram and your blog has truly inspired me to continue to work hard, graduate from college this spring and hopefully move to London to work for a fashion PR firm.

The way you write is truly captivating. I enjoy every post. Enjoy the rest of fashion week, I’m unbelievably jealous!

I love the new Michael Kors perfumes. What draws me to perfumes, almost equal with scent, is the bottle. And the packaging of these new perfumes is beautiful. So Insta-ready haha

So so pretty and beautiful pictures!

I LOVE your makeup, it’s great!

Really beautiful pictures – very natural look.

You look absolutely stunning in these pics Kristina! And great tips for the flashlight photos.

Wish I had seen you in New York!

Your photos are always so perfect. I struggle a bit with make up for the photos. As a fan of “no make up make up” I’ve tried to show it on my site but I always looked washed out. On the other hand, I never know how much is too much when I do apply it liberally :) I must say I’ve never been a big fan of popular perfumes despite Michael Kors being one of my favourite designers. But recently I dipped my toe in Tom Ford and I’m very happy for that :)

Kors also play 00000B50 ed with the fabric to make the pieces light without sacrificing the texture and embroidery. For instance, he stripped the lining of a coat so that it could catch a breeze.

Merci pour ces conseils Kristina, les bracelets Michael Kors sont tip top.

I love your makeup here, Kristina! Tutorial on this look soon? I agree. I don’t like makeup caked on either and I think your color choices for your eyes and lips are on point for sure. I finally bought the YSL palette from the beauty post you did last year and I’m officially in love! It’s perfect for me. Thanks again for taking the time to put that massive post together! xo

magnifique et féerique kristina !!! bons conseils et fidèle à ces créateurs !!!! bravo et merci Cibelle levi !!!vous êtes charmantes toutes les deux !!! je vous adore ……..

I agree – photos and flash tend to make makeup appear a lot less than what it is in real life. Even though it looks like a lot in real life, in photos, it looks like you’re not wearing makeup at all haha!
And so jealous of all of your travels for Fashion Week <3 Sounds like such fun!
You always look so gorgeous! :)

xo, elizabeth t.
