Fashion week throwback…

We wanted to use the makeup to bring a sense of strength forward in each girl. While doing this we also wanted to keep them looking as if they didn’t have much makeup on. I explored with a play on color since the starting palette of the collection was amazing I tried a tomato red to portray a “woman with presence.” My goal was to find a way to balance the strength and beauty of each girl but in the most natural way. The hair was pulled back from the face  with a side part which left me with the perfect canvas.

Beauty Inspiration:
Natural faces with a kick. Clean, pretty, not matte or shinny, not too done-just perfect.
Collection Inspiration:
“Eclipse” There is texture, structure, colors like blood red and poison pink set off next to nudes and blacks! Strong and structured yet still feminine in order to enhance the womans form.

Read below to learn how to create this look!

Here is how to create the look:
Start by applying foundation or concealer only where needed. Keep the skin free of unnecessary product. Lightly powder the T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) to get rid of shine. Take finger and blot a tomato red lip stick on lips to create a heavy stain. The key is to be generous with the initial amount of product on your finger and keep blotting! Don’t worry about the soft edges…that is how you keep it raw and less painted. The soft edges make it effortless; the bold color screams strength!
