Runway Beauty: Spanish Red Lips at Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2015

September 23rd, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

To complement the Spanish influences as seen at Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2015, Pat McGrath created a beauty look that consisted of soft plump lips, as if they were colored by the juice of fresh cherries and wide elongated eyes.

To prep the models for makeup, McGrath used Aurealux Mask, a new fabric mask from the Dolce & Gabbana skincare line, on the models. Next, she created the perfect canvas with The Primer: Sheer Radiance Make Up Base, Perfect Luminous Liquid Foundation and Perfect Luminous Concealer. Then, she lightly contoured the face with The Blush: Luminous Cheek Color in Sole and Peach on the apples of the cheeks. The look was set with a light dusting of the Pressed Powder across the nose, forehead and chin and finished with Glow Illuminating Powder in Shimmer and Eva.

The eyes were gently outlined to widen and keep the simplicity. McGrath applied the bronze shades of the Smooth Eyeshadow Quad in Desert all over the eyelid and upward towards the brow line to further enhance the eyes. The upper and bottom lash lines were defined by applying the Crayon Intense Eyeliner in Chocolate. Along with the top of the upper lash line, a defined line of Intense Liquid Eyeliner in Black Intense was softly drawn to widen and perfect the eye. On the upper lashes, layers of Secret Eyes Mascara in Black were applied for a defined lash look and a lengthening finish. The brows were naturally sculpted with the Brow Liner in Chestnut, using the nib of the pencil to create additional definition. Broad strokes from the wide part of the nib were then used to fill the color outwards to the end of the brow achieving a natural youthfulness to the face.

To create the red lips, McGrath applied Classic Cream Lipstick in shades of Ultra and Amethyst on the outer parts of the lips and added Dolce Matte Lipstick in Dolce Desire on cupids bow and at the center of the lips, achieving a rich plump affect.

Looks To Try For Fall 2014: Graphic Eyeliner

September 1st, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

The graphic eyeliner trend continued to be a hit this fall with makeup artists interpreting the look in an even more unconventional, modern manner. At Anthony Vaccarello A/W 2014, red lipstick and black liquid eyeliner were applied on models’ lids and under their eyes with dental flossfor a “sophisticated and arty cool” look. At Marchesa, gel and liquid eyeliner in shades of blue and green were layered over each other for a feminine look while Zac Posen presented us with a “black swan” graphic eye with feather-like strokes at the inner and outer corner of the eyes.

A/W 2014 Runway Graphic Eyeliner Makeup trend

Fall 2014 runway-inspired Graphic eyeliner makeup look
For my take, I used my favorite pencil liner, NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Khao San Road. The pencil glides on very easily and I ♥ that it doesn’t budget once it sets! I started by drawing a line along the socket in light feathery strokes and extending it past the outer corner. Once I got the shape I wanted, I thickened the line for more intensity. Next, I lined the lower eye and left the center san eyeliner. The rest of the face was Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide Foundation in Cashew only where needed, NARS Blush in Day Dream on the cheeks, L’oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Excess Mascara in Blackest Black and Senna Form-A-Brow Eyebrow Stencil Kit in Neutral on the brows.

Tip: To nail this season’s graphic eye, just allow your creative juices to flow. Instead of a filled-in line, leave a gap wherever you feel it. Remember to also experiment with different colors and textures. For instance, try layering a liquid eyeliner over a gel or cake liner for maximum staying power. My top picks are Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner and NARS Eyeliner Stylo.
