EMILIO PUCCI F/W '11

"She's still Pucci's sexy girl, but this season she's got more power and toughness to her," says Makeup Artist Lisa Butler on the makeup look, "it's a bit of a warrior-like green messy eye, so she's cool, not trying hard. It references Charlotte Rampling and Kate Moss -- not in the way they look, but more their sexy, raw attitude."

The Breakdown:

Eyes

Butler applied MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder on the waterline of lower lashes. She also blended MAC Eye Kohl in Tarnish and blended it out straight out. She made lashes feathery and fanned with MAC Haute & Naughty Mascara in Black, and groomed brows with MAC Clear Brow Set.

Face

MAC Studio Finish Concealer was applied over the skin only where needed for a natural finish. Butler blended MAC Cremeblend Blush in Ladyblush and Posey together across the cheeks for a flush. She highlighted the skin with MAC Cream Color Base in Luna and Pearl.

Lips

Butler hydrated and conditioned the lips with MAC Lip Conditioner SPF 15 and dabbed the tiniest amount of MAC Lipstick in Girl About Town on the inside of the lips to look more modern than retro-beige.

C'N'C COSTUME NATIONAL F/W '11

"The label is always very young, very urban, very direted by music…" says Makeup Artist Lyne Desnoyers, "yet this season w're flirting with 60′s minimalism with a gorgeous take on beiges and matte textures enlivened with a little gloss."

The Breakdown:

Eyes

Makeup Artist Lyne Desnoyers applied MAC Pro Gloss Texture along the lash line, and groomed the lashes with MAC Clear Brow Set.

Face

Desnoyers mixed MAC Select Cover-Up Concealer with moisturizer in varying consistencies to create a perfected, yet still real skin. Then Lyne patted MAC Pro Gloss Texture on top of the cheekbones, bridge of nose, and cupid's bow.

Lips

Prepping the lips with MAC Lip Conditioner SPF 15, she then applied MAC Glamglass in Have to Have It (available autumn/winter 2011) and worked it into the lips as perfectly as if it were a bright red, only to create a chic matte nude.
