Libertine Makeup, New York Fashion Week S/S 2012
Published Sep 12, 2011
Johnson Hartig's Libertine spring collection favored black and white screen prints over a traditional spring palette. Aggressive circles and stripes in structured silhouettes mixed with controversial typographical prints for a refreshingly edgy spring runway.
"The beauty look at Libertine is inspired by an edgy girl influenced by graphic '60s prints," said Maybelline New York Global Makeup Artist Charlotte Willer. "Skin is completely bare and natural. Eyes are dark and smoky. The lips reflect a light from within."
All focus was on the eyes, so Charlotte opted for bare skin without blush or foundation. She first created smoky definition with Maybelline Line Express Eyeliner in Ebony Black all around the upper and lower lid. She then layered Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black on top of the pencil into a cat eye shape. Charlotte swiped on Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lipcolor in Glisten Up Pink for just a hint of color, and finished with a nourishing layer of Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in Quenched.
Redken lead stylist Noah Hatton created a volumized "got out of bed" effect for the patterned and monochromatic look at Libertine.
