Brazilian designer, Alexandre Herchcovitch, showcased his sexy Spring 2011 collection for Rosa Cha yesterday at Lincoln Center. The beachwear was reminiscent of 1950’s lingerie, featuring structured bras, high-waists and tapered lines accentuating the curves of a woman’s body. For the first time in addition to the bathing suits, ballerina-like dresses with sheer accents made the cut for Rosa Cha's collection.

At Rosa Cha (the queen of super-sexy Brazilian bikinis), MAC makeup artist Nadine Luke played off the “birds of paradise” fashion inspiration and created a vibrant two-toned blue and orange eye. Her pro tip: By layering the blue eye pencil and blue cream eye shadow (both in a shade called “Cyan”), the color won’t budge—even under hot runway lights. She finished the eye with MAC StudioFix Lash, $14, maccosmetics.com, which she describes as a “credit card product; don’t leave home without it!” 

Watch Nadine describe the look:
