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.

Chanel Summer 2012 Makeup Collection

April 26th, 2012

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:


Chanel Summer 2012 Makeup Collection

As longer days and warm, breezy nights herald the start of Summer, Chanel embraces the season and all the vibrant makeup hues it inspires. In the Summer 2012 Collection, SUMMERTIME DE CHANEL, Peter Philips, Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, replicates the natural glow of sunbathed skin with luminous bronze, gold and copper tones. Playing up a radiant complexion: season-perfect lip shades, from fresh pastels to bright corals.

Soleil Tan de Chanel / Luminous Bronzing Powder ($60.00) (Limited Edition)

Two bronzers — each comprised of seven unique shades, including a luminous gold — lend subtle hints of warmth and shimmer to every complexion. A soft peach palette brings a fresh glow to lighter skin, while a deeper pink harmony lends radiance to darker tones. Blended together, the shades create a seamless bronzing effect; used on their own, the gold powders illuminate the complexion, while the darker shades sculpt the face when gently swept along its natural contours.

mark. Fall 2011 i-mark metallics Eyeshadow Reviews, Swatches and Photos

August 18th, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

The new mark. Fall 2011 i-mark metallics Eyeshadows I have been dying to see are finally here!

mark. Fall 2011 i-mark metallics Eyeshadow
Jazzy is a frosty violet that flashes pink. It is similar to MAC Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow, only a bit frostier. The texture is slightly chalky but pigmentation is decent and very buildable.

Truffle is a shimmery bronze gold just like my favorite, now-discontinued Jane Magical Mushroom eyeshadow. It has a really chunky texture (think MAC Kitschmas pigment chunky) that does require a bit of layering and blending to get smooth, even color.

Lava is a dark olive green with very fine gold shimmer. It has the most buttery texture out of the three and applies with great pigmentation.

Overall, these are some really gorgeous, wearable colors that I can’t wait to wear for fall. However, their textures do seem to vary a lot by color. I would recommend using a primer underneath and a dense eyeshadow brush like MAC #239 for application.

Overall Rating:

mark. i-mark metallics will be available September 2011 at meetmark.com or through a mark. rep for $5 each.
