Runway Beauty: Fairytale Romance at Naeem Khan S/S 2016

October 1st, 2015

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

At Naeem Khan Spring/Summer 2016, models rocked a quintessential feminine look which complemented the collection of gowns that represented a fairytale romance with vivid colors of the Mediterranean.

Makeup: Gato for Maybelline New York
Nails: Julie Kandalec for essie

Gato started with Fit Me! Dewy+smooth Foundation and Face Studio Master Conceal Concealer on the face. He brightened the eyes with Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer and contoured the edges of the face and cheekbones with Face Studio Master Contour. He added a touch of blush on the apples of the cheeks, blending in the faintest bit of Lip Studio Color Blur in Cherry Cherry Bang for a flushed pop.

On the eyes, Gato brushed the soft satin beige hue from The Blushes Nudes eyeshadow palette onto the lid before dusting blush from Master Contour on the crease. He traced the upper lashline with Eye Studio Brow Precise Shaping Eye Pencil in Deep Brown and finished with a single coat of The Push Up Drama Mascara in Black on upper lashes. Next, he filled in the brows with Brow Drama Pro Palette and set with Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara in Translucent.

Finally, Gato completed the look with a subtle berry stained lip using Baby Lips in Quenched and patting Lip Studio Color Blur in Cherry Cherry Bang using his fingers.

Inspired by the ornate, bejeweled pieces found throughout the collection, Kandalec created a nail design that mimicked jewels trailing down the nail. She started out with one thin coat of Topless & Barefoot and one coat of Limo-scene. Then, she dotted Set In Stones on the nail near the cuticle, working the glitter toward the free edge for a gradient effect before finishing with Gel Setter Top Coat.

Runway Beauty: Indian Inspired Eyes and Nails at Libertine A/W 2015

February 19th, 2015

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

With vague references to mythology and Indian culture, the Libertine A/W 2015 collection centered around a beauty look that consisted of a dramatic cat eye and heavily adorned nails.

Makeup: Chantel Miller for M·A·C Cosmetics
Nails: CND

To convey the idea of “a Libertine girl set in celebratory India”, Miller created a traditional black eye with a splash of neon pigments. She blended M·A·C Midnight Well Eyeshadow in Black Onyx on the crease before buffing M·A·C Carbon Eyeshadow along the edges to elongate the eyes. She left the center of the lid and brow bone bare but added Midnight Well Eyeshadow in Black Onyx in the inner brow and lower lashline. She lined the upper lashline with M·A·C Pointblack Liquidlast Liner and pressed M·A·C Jet Couture Pressed Pigment onto the center of the lid and under the brow bone. She finished the look by adding a pop of color through the middle part of the hair with M·A·C Process Magenta Pigment mixed with hairspray.

The eye-catching, golden nails created by the CND Design Lab Team were constructed with CND® Liquid & Powder, painted with VINYLUX® Weekly Polish and embellished with CND® Additives and a variety of unconventional materials and architectural accessories. Abstract shark teeth nails, inspired by baguettes on the sleeves of the Libertine garments, featured blinding gold studs in varying textures with one giant shark tooth extending halfway up the finger. Other models donned chandelier chains reminiscent of dripping melted gold, which were webbed together between the fingers for an over-the-top molten metal effect. The lavish 3D looks were tricked out with 2,500 hand-placed paillettes, 600 feet of gold chain and 110 individually sculpted shark teeth.

The Eyeshadow Palette comes with 9 Illumin8 Eyeshadows in a gorgeous selection of nude and purple shades in both matte and shimmer finishes. Just like the full-sized Illumin8 shadows, these applied smoothly with great color payoff and stayed on nicely for hours without creasing or fading.

The Liquid Liner comes with a long, thin brush that allows great precision. I loved the super intense black color but the staying power could be better. Even on my dry skin, the swatch smudged once I rubbed it and with just a bit of water, it faded completely.

Finally, the Mini Clear Brow Gel, which is 1/3 of Anastasia’s signature Brow Gel. It is enhanced with chamomile and did a great job setting my brows without making them stiff.

How To Get Kim Kardashian’s Wedding Makeup

August 26th, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

On her big day marrying Kris Humphries, the ever gorgeous Kim Kardashian donned a “clean, radiant, feminine, modern and classic” look that consisted of a brown smoky eyes, full brows, pink blush and glossy pink lips. Find out what Kim’s longtime makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic and brow expert Anastasia used to create her look!

To play up Kim’s eyes, Mario created a smoky bronze look with Lancome Color Design 5 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Golden Frenzy. Then he used Lancôme’s new Hypnôse Doll Lashes Mascara in So Black! along with several sets of fake lashes to play up Kim’s signature long lashes.

To make sure Kim’s eyebrows were perfect for her big day, Anastasia gave Kim’s brows a tweeze, “making sure every hair is where it should be.” On the day, Duo Brow Powder in Brunette was used all over Kim’s arches and Perfect Brow Pencil in Brunette for touch ups on areas that are naturally more sparse such as the front and ends of the brow. Anastasia then set Kim’s brows with Tinted Brow Gel in Caramel to keep them soft and pretty.

Mario swept on Lancome Blush Subtil in Rose Romantique to emphasize Kim’s cheekbones, creating a soft, romantic complexion.

To achieve the perfect pout, Lancome L’Absolu Nu Lipstick in Coral Sand was topped with Lancome La Laque Fever Lipgloss in Ravishing Coral.
